Who Is A Successful Entrepreneur?

Decent Essays
According to the first segments on the TSBDC training website, one does not have to have a certain personality in order to be a successful entrepreneur. One does, however, have to obtain certain personality traits, or characteristics, to truly have what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur. For example, a person who lacks confidence, is shy and uncomfortable breaking rules or not willing to work as hard to find opportunities will most definitely struggle in entrepreneurship. On the other hand, someone who has perseverance, integrity, drive and willingness for innovation has potential to make it unbelievably far. This is why if someone becomes interested in becoming an entrepreneur, it is a good idea to make sure they have what it takes. Comparing your personality traits to one of entrepreneurs is a great start. The lengthy list of characteristics ranges from competitive, positive, and good money management to confidence, accessibility and reputation. Where it gets tricky, though, is that someone might not have every personality trait listed. For that reason, one might want to ask themselves different questions to ensure their true ability. The main five questions one might want to ask them self are as listed: Are you comfortable breaking rules? Are you going to be able to handle making enemies along the way? Will you be willing to start off small in attempt to work your way to the top? Can you rapidly move and change your strategies? Can you close the deal? (TSBC)
