Enterprising

Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain.

Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.
