Being a Successful Entrepreneur

There are many books that will tell you how to be a successful entrepreneur, but I wanted to simplify it. Being successful as an entrepreneur, and especially a consultant like myself, requires certain characteristics. If you can master these, you will be successful:

  • Confidence
  • Critical thinking skills
  • Passion for what you do
  • Organized
  • Strong leadership
  • Good work ethic
  • Show respect to others
  • Have a pleasant disposition
  • Work with speed
  • Open-minded to learning and new ideas
  • Have the power of language
  • Offer pragmatic solutions
  • Work with humour

This is a good list to start with if you want to be successful in any career that requires you to work with and influence others. Let me know if there are other characteristics that you feel were not on this list.

  1. one additional one we could add to your list would be “constancy of purpose”. The good guys don’t easily get distracted or derailed, they stick with a few well-developed things until they are done. BCS

    • BCS, this is true. As long as they are not too committed. The fear is falling in love with the purpose so much so that it clouds good judgment.
