Entrepreneurial characteristics

Most types of successful entrepreneurs possess characteristics that may help them achieve more than less-successful business people. Some of these characteristics are:

1. Self-confidence – They have confidence in their capabilities & knowledge.

2. Risk-engagement – They enter into situations that appear risky, but do so as a sort of engagement in battle, developing skills that let them judge (or calculate) risks specific to their operational style & circumstances.

3. Results-oriented – Achievements are in mind during sustained effort timeframes, and are usually enhanced by concentration focused on achieving a specific goal, not solely accomplishing a series of unrelated tasks.

The first characteristic is generally held to be the most important – self-confidence forms a solid base for which other characteristics can rely on.
