DNA of an Entrepreneur: Do I have the Genes?

Have you ever wondered if it takes a special gene to run a business?  I have. Just reading or hearing about some entrepreneur makes me wonder if there is some distinct trait I need to possess in order to be successful. Luckily, there isn't. 

Some people have natural flairs for certain things. Take artists, singers, or athletes. They grow up like everyone else and find out they have this talent and decide to pursue it. However, some people are not born with these skills but learn it and eventually become good at it. 


Regardless of the category you find yourself in, if you are willing to work hard and be resilient, you will eventually succeed.

There are so many traits successful entrepreneurs possess. My non-exhaustive list highlights some qualities I believe provide a firm foundation for any aspiring business owner.

1. Vision: They have a fairly good idea of what they want their future to look like and are willing to take steps to make it a reality.

2. Passion: They possess a strong sense of purpose beyond monetary gain.

3. Tenacity: read “Never Give Up”. They just don’t take no.

4. Guts: Not afraid of taking risks knowing fully well the outcome may be positive or negative.

5. Positive Mindset: They have a knack for always seeing how things can work. When it fails, they find another way, but remain positive and believing.

This leads me to an interesting question. Do you need to possess all these traits to become successful? I will let you answer.

Thank you for your comment Sherrie. Differentiating yourself from the competition is key to having a profitable business.

Your website must supply a clear message using a goal-oriented
direction, setting you apart from the competitors. So unless any organization completes the formalities and acquire the necessary certifications they could't start their business.
I have experienced my share of scams, and have actually done
a good job avoiding being taken for a sucker and I'm here to share
with you, Ameriplan isn't a scam.
