Traits of the Entrepreneur – By Helen Peak

Successful entrepreneurs, from Henry Ford to Steve Jobs, share similar qualities with one another.

Hint: Copy, paste, & print these and review often.

1. Strong leadership qualities:

  • Develop strong and effective communication skills
  • Earn the trust and respect of your team
  • Demonstrate positive work qualities and confidence
  • Maintain the highest standards of ethics and integrity at all times
  • Foster an environment that proliferates these values.

2. Highly self-motivated:

  • Be driven by your “Why”, your vision; feel your passion.
  • Have a burning desire to start your dream business.
  • Go out into the world and invoke changes through your actions.
  • Enjoy challenges and work tirelessly to solve them.
  • Adapt to changing situations without unraveling.
  • Motivate your team towards their goals and opportunities.
  • Stay on course.

3. Be willing to take risks:

  • Risk takers get over one very significant hurdle:  they are not afraid of failure.
  • Accept that, even if you make the best decision possible, things don’t always go according to plan and may fail anyhow.
  • “Nothing ventured, nothing gained,” — do not be afraid to fail, put it out there and give it your best shot.  Feel the fear and do it anyways

4. Be an  Innovator:

  • Develop new ideas and improve on existing methods of operation
  • Welcome change and allow it to improve your effectiveness as a leader and ultimately the success of your business

5. Know what you don’t know:

  • There’s always a lesson to be learned. Ask questions when it means the answers will provide insight and leverage.
  • Be confident, but not egotistical.

6. The spirit of taking on a challenge:

  • Starting a business is one of the biggest challenges you can take on in your lifetime. Enjoy the challenge and be willing to win.
  • It’s a personal challenge. Use inward focus and grow a business from nothing into a powerhouse that makes a lot of money.

7. Understand the value of a strong peer network: be a team player

  • You never get to success alone – It takes a network of contacts, business partners, peers and resources to succeed.
  • We all have Unique Skills: Be aware of the skills you and your team members have to offer and utilize them.
  • Nurture these relationships and surround yourself with people who can help each other be more effective.
  • If you don’t have specific skills, look for business partners who do have them.

8. Clear Vision:

  • Value your ‘Why’ you want to achieve, over any unpleasantness the work that it takes to accomplish it may bring.
  • Visualize how you want your future to unfold.
  • Hold a clear picture of what direction you want to take
  • Possess a plan to guide it from conception to realization.
  • Clearly communicate the dreams and aspirations you have to your teams and listen carefully to theirs.

9. Determination

  • Demonstrate the determination and resolve to stick with an intention that you believe in.
  • If you experience setbacks, like the team captain, the entrepreneur is expected to push on to victory.
  • Know your own ambitions, and be determined to stay aligned with them.
  • Be a problem-solver: Resolve issues quickly and efficiently.
  • If you are not capable, find the people who are.

10. Have Self-confidence:

  • Believe you can define your own future and use this self-assurance to gather in people to work together as a team.

11. Be physically resilient and in good health.

  • Take an active roll in your own personal well being and your body will repay you with the energy, vitality, and resilience to achieve your dreams.

12. Be realistic:


  • Have realistic goals that are obtainable. Then celebrate each accomplishment.
  • Be okay with start up pay, and know that it will exponentially grow.

Are these traits something that entrepreneurs are born with or can they be learned or acquired? They can certainly be cultivated – if you don’t see these traits in yourself today, you can learn from successful entrepreneurs how to build these traits.

Knowing where you are already strong, and where you need to build strength, is key to your success as an entrepreneur.

I hope this has been helpful.
