Abstract [en]

The aim of this master thesis is to investigate the notion of passion within an entrepreneurial context. Data for this research were obtained through interviews and conversations with entrepreneurs as well as persons who are in a direct relationship with the entrepreneurs. Notably, passion is a multi-faceted conceptualization affecting entrepreneurs throughout their entrepreneurial journey. In order to prevent initial passion from turning into consuming obsession, entrepreneurs are required to nurture and develop their respective passions. This represents a complex undertaking. At the heart of this paper there is a thorough discussion about the three elements of 'the self', 'the business' and 'the people'. The research concludes that it remains inevitable for entrepreneurs to balance their passions between the three aforementioned elements if they want to keep it continuously alive as an enduring source of satisfaction, well-being and happiness.
