The purpose of this paper is to deepen the understanding of how entrepreneurs interpret the five dimensions of entrepreneurial orientation (i.e., autonomy, proactiveness, innovativeness, competitiveness, and risk-taking). We employed a qualitative study interviewing self-selected committed single venture entrepreneurs (n=17) and habitual entrepreneurs (n=15) in Australia. Our results indicate that the EO dimensions manifest differently, and their characteristics change over time while our participants' attitudes towards the firm's financial and non-financial goals evolved as well.
