What is an entrepreneur? 

An entrepreneur is a person who starts, plans, and manages their own business. The process of entrepreneurship involves making an idea a reality.

Entrepreneurs need to posses a set of characteristics that help them accomplish their goals.

What are entrepreneurial characteristics? 

Entrepreneurial characteristics are certain traits that help you succeed in your pursuits within the business industry.

Here are characteristics of an entrepreneur: 

  1. Motivation: this is your willingness to complete particular duties. Entrepreneurs are driven to push themselves and their businesses to grow despite difficulties. You also need to be capable of motivating your employees in dark times.  
  2. Passion: this is what drives you to make sure your business succeeds. You must enjoy what you do, which will make it easier for you to devote time to your work.
  3. Creativity: this is highly needed as it is the first step towards starting your own business. You must be able to spot opportunities, come up with creative solutions, and present them to your target market. 
  4. Ability to network: this is the ability to establish relationships with others and to spot business partnerships. Getting to know new people could make it easier for your business to obtain the resources or knowledge it requires. It enables you to gain knowledge from others' successes, market your products or services, and attract new customers.
  5. Flexibility: as an entrepreneur you need to be adaptable and willing to change according to the situation at hand. Additionally, you need to be prepared to accept changes to a product or service as and when they arise.
  6. Ability to take risks: any new business initiative carries a considerable chance of failure. As a result, you as an entrepreneur are required to be brave and be able to weigh the pros and cons of taking chances for the success of the business. 
  7. Self-confidence: as an entrepreneur you may have doubts, but you have to persevere through them. You are prepared to make the necessary investments because you are sure they can produce something that is superior to what already exists in the current market.

Do you posses these entrepreneurial characteristics? If so, it would be in your best advantage to start your own business. Not only would it be advantageous to you, but you would also create jobs.
