So, you’ve got an excellent business idea that you feel fills a gap in the market, but how do you get it off its feet? And how do you know that you are ready to be an entrepreneur? There are three qualities that separate the ordinary entrepreneurs from the extraordinary ones here at Fast Trak, Inc.; you just have to make sure you’re in the right group.
Intelligence – Now you may be smart but there is a clear difference between having a high IQ and having an entrepreneurial mind. Experts believe that the latter form of intelligence combines being book smarts with street smarts. Almost like bringing together the cleverness of a salesperson and the imagination of an inventor, you just have to find the balance between the two.
Attitude – Most new businesses don’t make it through their first two years, but that doesn’t mean you should expect to fail. What you should do is prepare to fail whilst at the same time remaining positive and focused on the goals you want to achieve. There will be very tough times, but you need to make sure you have the passion to power through them.
Leadership – This doesn’t mean that you should be bossy. Leadership is all about having amazing ideas, knowing how you want to achieve them and being able to tell other people about them. That doesn’t just include your employees; you also need to be able to effectively communicate your ideas to potential clients and others who don’t work for you.
