A businessperson (also businessman, business man, or businesswoman) is someone involved in a particular undertaking of activities, commercial or industrial, for the purpose of generating revenue from a combination of human, financial, and physical capital. An entrepreneur is an example of a business person. Sometimes the term can mean someone who is involved in the management of a company, especially as an owner or an executive. Sometimes it can also mean someone employed in a (usually) profit-oriented enterprise. The term businessperson/man/woman almost always refers to someone with a "white collar" occupation.

Further information: Social aspects of clothing and Business attire

Male businesspeople typically wear standard business attire consisting of a suit with collar shirt and necktie. However, this may vary among companies and often depends on local business culture. In some countries, especially in Western countries like the U.S., business casual is appropriate for businessmen to wear and neckties can be left out. In several other countries, however, notably many East Asian countries, businessmen are more formally dressed and wear conservative suits with a necktie.

Female businesspeople's apparel has gone over many changes. Dresses and suits are in the norm today.
