This study explored and examined the business motivation and personal/social background characteristics of small and medium-sized tourism entrepreneurs who play an important role in Jeju tourism industry by making use of survey data from local entrepreneurs. The results of this study indicated four types of distinctive business motivation: family, leisure, business, and achievement orientation.
