Recruiter.com posted a recent blog post outlining the defining four personality traits of a “successful” entreprenuer from studies done by UC Berkeley, London School of Economics and University of Maryland, to name a few. Here are the four traits [WITH COMMENTS FROM ME IN BRACKETS].
High Levels of Confidence [HOPEFULLY GENERATED FROM CONFIDENCE IN THEIR SERVICE OR PRODUCT]
Proactive and Engaged Mindsets [ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO DISCOVERING PROSPECT AND CLIENT NEEDS WHICH SHOULD DRIVE COMPANY EVOLUTION AND REVENUE]
Flexibility [YES THIS IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE START-UPS CAN CHANGE SO FAST, COMBINED WITH MAKING THE RIGHT DECISIONS ON WHAT TO BE FLEXIBLE ABOUT AS THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH TIME AND MONEY IN MOST START-UPS]
Passion and Determination [DEFINITELY REQUIRED TO GET THROUGH THE HURDLES WITH PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT, CLIENT CREATION AND FUND-RAISING TO NAME A FEW IMPORTANT FOCUS POINTS]
