What Kind Of Person Makes A Successful Entrepreneur

Research of successful entrepreneurs has documented that successful small business people have certain common characteristics. This checklist can not predict success, but it can give you an idea of whether you will have a head start or a handicap with which to work. How do you measure up? Ask yourself these questions:

  • Can I persevere through tough times?
  • Do I have a strong desire to be my own boss?
  • Do the judgments I make in life regularly turn out well?
  • Do I have an ability to conceptualize the whole of a business?
  • Do I possess the high level of energy, sustainable over long hours, to make a business successful?
  • Do I have significant specialized business experience?
While not every successful business owner starts with a "yes" answer to all these questions, three or four "no" and undecided answers should make you think twice about going it alone right now. But, don't be discouraged. You can find extra training and support with help from a skilled team of business advisors such as accountants, bankers, attorneys and Innovating Creation's mentors.
