The businessman has been around as long as people have been trading with each other. The following graphic shows a humorous view of how the businessman has evolved over the years. Businessmen often had to shape their interests and skills to society's general interests at the time. They were often some of the first to practically use new technology as well. Notable historical figures often were businessmen on the side, and had some aptitude in commerce and business.
Today, the businessman is considered the most educated and skilled in history. With many familiar with modern technology (including computer usage, internet social networking, and reliance on smartphones), the businessman today has changed radically compared to what he was centuries ago. In addition, today's businessman is also more health conscious and environmentally aware than previous generations. The current crop of today's businessman, like its predecessors, aim to change today's business practices, but maybe for the better of all this time.
