9 signs you’ll be a good entrepreneur. Just a century ago, the normal way of life for 99% of the people in the world was to go to school, get good jobs, and climb the corporate ladder.
The last 2 decades however has given birth to another way of thinking. Now, most people in the world want to be entrepreneurs. But can everyone really be an entrepreneur?
We think not everyone can be an entrepreneur. At the same time, we believe so many people have what it takes to be entrepreneurs.
That’s why we write this article to outline 9 important traits and signs that indicate that you’re probably going to be a good entrepreneur.
Take a pen and note some of these signs. If at the end of this article you have more than 6 out of these 9 signs, congratulation. Who knows, you may be the next Steve Job or Bill Gate!
If you’re constantly aiming for new achievements. Having a restless spirit that’s never satisfied with “good enough” is one sign that you’d make a great entrepreneur.
To be always on the lookout for possible opportunities is essential if you are going to survive in the world of business. Entrepreneurs see opportunities for new businesses everywhere they go.
Whether it’s traveling around the world or simply browsing the web; entrepreneurs find problems quickly and look for solutions. This passion will help you to overcome challenges and will fuel your drive for success.
Being a business owner means continually improving your success and never resting in your comfort zone.
If you naturally get angry at the status quo, if you always love to change and improve things, congrats, you’re a born entrepreneur.
If you possess people skills. While being a loner doesn’t rule you out as a potential entrepreneur, lacking social skills could hinder your entrepreneurial success.
Having people skills suggests that being an entrepreneur might be more realistic because communication is a necessity in any business endeavor.
Without communication, you could face problems forming partnerships, attracting customers, and networking within your industry. To succeed in business you have to be able to communicate and lead effectively, hence, people’s skills is very important.
If you take action. Great ideas mean nothing. In fact, millions of hourly employees around the country have several ideas.
Hell, I’m sure you know at least a handful of people who constantly boast about their “million-dollar ideas,” even though that’s all that ever comes from their proposed business.
The reason these “all talk” people aren’t entrepreneurs is that they never take action. If you’re an action taker, you’ll likely succeed as an entrepreneur.
If you’re fearful and postpone actions, well, you’re not made to build a business, we’re sorry.
If you’re stubborn. An Entrepreneur doesn’t take NO for an answer. Entrepreneurs may concede but they will never give up.
They will figure out a way to fit a square block into a round hole. Giving up easily is not a typical trait among entrepreneurs. Securing your own success requires perseverance, stubbornness, and the ability to be persuasive and think outside the box.
Not everything is going to go exactly as planned and people, permitting, laws, codes, etc. can turn to roadblocks inhibiting your business from growing.
It doesn’t matter what people say or what they think, entrepreneurs are usually very determined and stubborn. If you’re the type who says,
“I want to do it and I’ll do it no matter what”
then that’s a sign you can be a successful entrepreneur.
If you like creating your own cash. Many people love the idea of a paycheck while some hate it. If you hate being given money or getting a paycheck, you’re probably going to be good at the game of money.
Many company’s founders started their own businesses after getting fed up with working for other people’s ideas of a fair salary.
Many people will plod through their lives satisfied with their day-to-day routines. However, when you have a raging entrepreneurial spirit inside you, you aren’t easily satisfied with just a casual job or paycheck.
You will constantly question why something is done in such a way, and look to how you could make it better. You feel that you deserve better and you’re not afraid to dare life and get what you deserve.
If you hang out with smart people. Smart people discuss ideas so hanging out with really smart people can be a sign that you love discussing business ideas.
The best entrepreneurs understand the value of their relationships and surround themselves with people who can help them become better persons.
Whether it’s through mentorship or conversations, the best entrepreneurs connect with people who can challenge their thinking, open their minds to the new reality and help them grow professionally and personally.
The best entrepreneurs have a mentor or an advisor they can lean on when looking for better insight. If you keep company with really smart people, you’re probably going to be a good entrepreneur.
If you’re curious. Curiosity may have killed the cat but it made the entrepreneur rich. By always wondering “why,” you’ll get to the bottom line of many issues and develop new solutions in the form of products and services that haven’t yet been introduced to the market.
You’ll also be able to anticipate challenges before they arise and create solution in a way many others can’t.
Do you take time after having arguments with people to fact check everything from Peer-Reviewed journals to market research? If so, your obsession with the truth is a clear trait of what it takes to be an entrepreneur.
Curiosity is key to innovation and innovation is the blood of entrepreneurship. Are you curious? You can discover your needs and create wonderful products. You can be a successful entrepreneur.
If you embrace failure without fear of trying. Most people grow up in an environment where failure is a sign of stupidity, while in the real sense, failure is the name of the road that leads to success.
You’ve learned that the only people who never fail are those who don’t try and people who can’t move from one failure to another can’t build successful businesses.
When you fail, you don’t automatically assume that you’re a failure. Instead, you embrace each failure as an opportunity to learn something and then you move on.
If you still struggle with this at times, know that you’ll never experience true success until you learn to embrace failure. Your mistakes pave the way for your success by revealing when you’re on the wrong path.
The biggest breakthroughs typically come when you’re feeling the most frustrated and the most stuck, hence, your ability to take actions after a setback is very important. If you are the type who doesn’t give up easily, believe me, you’re likely to be a great entrepreneur.
If you are Competitive by Nature Entrepreneurs are extremely competitive, without any exception. In fact, it’s practically impossible to build a successful business if you’re not willing to kill someone.
Hahahahaha…. No. not really by shooting someone. If you understand what Google did to Yahoo! And what Apple did to Nokia, you’ll understand what I mean here.
I’m sorry, business is a battle for the strong and if you can’t wake up 3 am to strategize how to keep your head above the water, you’ll be drowned very soon.
If you’re the type that loves to win and takes pride in defeating other people, you’re a potential entrepreneur because that’s one of the qualities of great entrepreneurs.
Now think about all these points;
- Are you a curious person who is never discouraged by failures?
- Are you stubborn and hate paychecks?
- Are you very good at social skills and hang out with smart people?
- Are you competitive by nature and love to change the status quo?
- Congratulations because you’re a potential entrepreneur!
