Traits of an Entrepreneur (part2)

15 January 2009

I found the following list in a book “Lists to live by” compiled by Alice Gray, Steve Stephens and John van Diest.

  •  Patient Yet Impatient – patient with others, yet impatient with the status quo
  • Adaptability – capable of change
  • Perfectionism – desire to achieve excellence
  • Humour – ability to laugh at self and others
  • Versatility – broad interests and skills
  • Curiosity – interested in people and things
  • Self-Identity – self-esteem and self-sufficiency
  • Realism – occupied by reality but guided by ideals
  • Imagination – seeking new ideas, combinations and relationships
  • Communication – articulate
  • Receptive – alert

 Taking a look at these traits, one can see why most entrepreneurs do not fit into the corporate world of conformity and rules based existence. We have been born to be free, out of the box and alone, yet together.
