Daily Read – Think you’re an Entrepreneur? Then You Must Possess These 4 Traits

True, entrepreneurs are just like everyone else in many ways (and as different too!). That being said, all successful entrepreneurs share 4 indispensable traits. Do you have what it takes to really succeed as an entrepreneur? Read on and see if you possess these character quirks…

  1. Adventurous. Starting a company (or being an investor) is like embarking on a four-week backpacking journey with enough food for one week. There are so many unknowns; you have to be comfortable with uncertainty.
  2. Patience.  Success will not happen overnight. (Look at Starbuck and Amazon – 8-9 years each!).

  4. Phenomenal Sales Person.  You need to be able to sell your vision to potential partners, investors, and customers. Be able to hook them with the big picture!
