Entrepreneurships has spent quite a lot of years in the spotlight over the last few decades. As more and more people are inspired to start their own business, it is common to self-reflect in order to determine if you have those special “entrepreneur qualities”. The majority of people in the business world would describe entrepreneurs as hardworking, creative go-getters who are confident, smart, and business savvy. And while these qualities are certainly found in many entrepreneurs, some of the less publicized traits may be even more interesting to discuss.
When you think of the most successful entrepreneurs to date, you will probably bring up the likes of Warren Buffet, Steve Jobs, or Richard Branson. All of these people have built incredible companies that have truly shaped the modern world. Those particular tycoons also share some of the more surprising qualities of successful entrepreneurs:
- They are humble, not ruthless or aggressive when it comes to dealing with people and business
- They are inclined to listen more so than to speak
- They have grown accustom to failure and embrace it wholeheartedly
- They are not afraid to ask for help
- They are the first to verbalize what they do not know
- They have mastered the art of saying no when appropriate
- They understand the value of a hiring a good team
- Their curiosity knows no bounds
While some of these traits may seem obvious, together they are counter to the preconceived notion that a successful business person must be cutthroat and aggressive.
