What Are The Qualities Of A Successful Entrepreneur?

June 29th, 2013

True entrepreneurs aren’t simply a product of a good education. Entrepreneurs posses a spirit that is difficult, if not impossible, to be taught. Whatever their passion might be, entrepreneurs are driven to make their dreams come true.

While an entrepreneur may place a high value on education, they place an equal amount of importance on real life experience. While textbooks will deliver theory, the real world will deliver practical experience and tangible results.

Do you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur?

January 25th, 2012

Yes? No? Maybe? Well, a ‘maybe’ is just about as good as a thinly-veiled ‘no’ and if you answered ‘yes’ then you must ask yourself another question:

Is it a matter of simply wanting to be an entrepreneur or do you feel like you are actually capable of handling the weight of the job? Heavy does the crown sit but the rewards are unimaginable – that is if you have what it takes.

One of the first things you need to figure out is whether or not you’re a leader or a follower.

Let’s face it, leaders make much better entrepreneurs because they can act on their own and make snap decisions.

How’s that ‘voip for business’ proposal coming? Should we cancel this meeting? Do we fold on this account? Do you even know what these questions imply or entail?

Good entrepreneurs are leaders who have been schooled both in life and in the classroom to handle the tough and often unpredictable world of business. That isn’t to say that you can only be an entrepreneur with those two major things – rules do exist for the sake of exceptions – however, having these skills can certainly help.
