When I tell people that I run my own business, they usually say, “I wish I could do that.”
My first thought is, “Why don’t you?”
I’m happy being an entrepreneur, and I’d like to see everyone as happy as I am! But, in reality, entrepreneurship isn't for everyone. It takes a certain kind of person to get out there and be a self-starting business success.
So, do you think you have what it takes? Here, in no particular order, are the top seven traits that an entrepreneur must have to succeed in business.
1. Passionate: I suppose this goes without saying, because why would you do anything without passion? It’s what drags you out of bed every morning, and pushes you to work late every night. And if you’re passionate about what you do, it won’t feel like work, will it?
Because who wants to work, anyway? To paraphrase an old saying, “Find a job you’re passionate about, and you’ll never work a day in your life.”
2. Innovative: When you’re in business, it’s always a great idea to think of new ways of doing things, and then doing them. Coming up with new products and services will keep things fresh for you and your customers. Evaluate new ways of optimizing revenue streams.
Always be willing to learn new things that you can adapt into your business in innovative ways. Whether you’re optimizing your website or learning to tweet, the lessons never end.
