A successful entrepreneur will usually serve as a CEO or President of the company, or at the very least serve on the company's board. The salary will depend on the success of the company. A successful company would generally pay a CEO a six-figure sum, perhaps in the high end of this bracket if the company is especially successful. As founder of the company, a percentage of the profit may supplement the salary in the form of a bonus and again this would depend on the success of the company. In some instances while the company is being set up and developed, there may be no money to take out of it, or just a very small salary, so the salary is very much dependent on the size of the company, the success of the venture and the overall aim of the enterprise.
