Introduction

As an entrepreneur, you already possess some of the wonderful skills and characteristics for success. However, no one can be expected to know everything and perfectly possess all of the strengths for success. In that vein, it’s important to spend time, energy and even money to improve yourself both personally and professionally.

When you take time and action toward self-improvement, you’re preparing yourself to not only be ready for future opportunities but to be able to recognize and embrace future opportunities.

We’re talking about:

  • Broadening your horizons
  • Exposing yourself to new people, thoughts, ideas, practices, philosophies, and opportunities
  • Enriching your soul
  • Strengthening your self confidence
  • And embracing all of those marvelous entrepreneurial qualities you already possess.

Speaking of which…

Continual and regular improvement helps you hone your entrepreneurial strengths. It helps you improve yourself not necessarily where you are weak but where you desire growth.

Let’s take a look at some of those unique characteristics you and other entrepreneurs possess.

Entrepreneurs are…

  • Careful about money
  • Competitive by nature
  • Opportunistic - they know money likes speed and always keep their eyes open for opportunities.
  • Risk-takers who trust their intuition and then takes action
  • Independent folks, not joiners
  • Professional with a strong work ethic
  • Attracted to responsibility and accountability
  • Goal oriented
  • Self-confident when they are in control of what they're doing and working alone
  • Quick to react and have a never-ending sense of urgency to develop their ideas
  • Planners
  • Realistic
  • Adaptable
  • Problem solvers
  • Attracted to and find satisfaction from their success rather than material items
  • More concerned with people's accomplishments than with their feelings
  • Capable of tremendous self control
  • Healthy and rarely get sick
  • Controlling
  • Are attracted to challenges

Taking a quick look at that list, are you nodding your head knowingly? What strengths and characteristics do you see in yourself? Where do you think you could use some personal or professional improvement?

For example, entrepreneurs tend to be good at managing and delegating which may or may not include interpersonal skills. One area where a person may need to improve to build a better business and a better life are their interpersonal and/or communication skills.
