Abstract: Entrepreneurship is a key factor in the production of goods and services. This paper reviews the theoretical, empirical, and the conceptual approaches to determining the significance of entrepreneurship to national economic growth and empowerment, and also draws evidence from China, Thailand, Singapore, India and Korea to support these approaches. It provides a sample of a Self-Discovery Exercise to Real Estate Professionals (REPs) based on ranking of 12 motivators in order of their importance from 1st to 12th in comparison with standard rankings. It concludes that entrepreneurship is significant to national economic empowerment and development and that REPs can add value in their various areas of professional practice and become players in the international real estate markets. The paper recommends sincere and regular self-discovery based on the standardised scheme for motivational training exercise, and that Governments at all levels synergise efforts towards improving entrepreneurial framework conditions by increasing access to finance, facilitate entry and exit, and create Government support programmes.
