Dieter Bögenhold, Jarna Heinonen and Elisa Akola explore the overlapping areas of entrepreneurship, self-employment and professions. Their study presents empirical findings obtained from a unique Finnish survey including freelance journalists, translators and interpreters, and artists at the blurred boundaries between waged work and entrepreneurship. The manifestations of entrepreneurship vary, reflecting the work and the labor market situation within these professions. Many different socioeconomic situations can be found ‘in between’, which are driven by different social logics. In such circumstances, the term ‘entrepreneurship’ can be misused when it is used indiscriminately and, therefore, can easily generate myths and stereotypes, which are challenged by the study.
