VISION

Successful entrepreneurs always keep one eye on the bigger picture, and this ability can make you a better and successful entrepreneur. By the “Big Picture”, I mean, having Vision.

Vision is all about strategic planning” Litzinger says.

You cannot succeed without Vision. Vision empower you sufficiently with the stamina to tackle your day-to-day job responsibilities, stay focused on long-term goals while working and actualizing your short term goals. Vision is what fuels your passion. Every proactive entrepreneur must Think Big. Just as Ben Carson defines it, T-H-I-N-K B-I-G entails:

T – Talent (recognizing our talents and skills)

H – Honesty (being honest in our dealing)

I – Insights  (observe, reflects and commits ourselves)

N – Nice (being kind to others)

K – Knowledge (building capacity)

B – Books (read and learn from successful entrepreneurs)

I – In-depth Knowledge (being good at what we do)

G: God (Acknowledging our need for God)

RISK TOLERANCE

Every employer wants to grow their business, which often involves risk and change“, says Litzinger.

Never be afraid to take risks or try new ideas like when pursuing a new clients. Nothing worthwhile in life comes easy. No risk, No reward! We must take calculated risks. Businesses  at startups stage are likely to fail and run into losses; when this happens, we must never relent. We must take risks and try new opportunities. If we fail at the end, we get up and try again with a different approach. That’s how we succeed!

COLLABORATION



Team work is very important for all entrepreneurs.

Savvy entrepreneurs are not only brilliant leaders, but also great collaborators“, Plutz says.

You have to be an effective team player if you must become a successful entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship is never a one-man-business; it’s a collective investment. You need to share ideas with others and learn from other business minded people. As you share information and ideas, it’s skews your perception and direction. We learn more in collaboration.

PASSION


This is the most significant characteristics that every entrepreneur possesses, and for obvious reasons. They are successful because they love what they do. It is a pleasure for them to see the results of their labour, which goes well beyond the money received.

DETERMINATION


The successful entrepreneurs are never greatly impacted by the defeat they encounter. For them, failure is like an opening for a success story, and hence they try again and again just till they get the success they are expecting. They believe they can do anything they put their mind to.

Be a creative entrepreneur

CREATIVITY


One of the main aspects of creativity is the ability to find a relationship between two unrelated situations or events. They usually come up with solutions to these problems that are a combination of other things. These people normally re-purpose the items for marketing them to new. industries.

DISCIPLINED


Successful entrepreneurs always focus their energy on making business work and for eliminating the distractions and obstacles to their goals. Entrepreneurs become successful as they are disciplined to always make new steps every day towards the accomplishment of their goals.

CONFIDENCE


A successful entrepreneur never asks the question or keeps doubts in their mind about if they can succeed or if they are even worthy of success. They are normally confident enough that their knowledge and their know-how will help them make their business idea a success.
