1. Attention to detail. Knowing when, where, and how to transform your business is determined using data analysis. A focus on these details is how you proactively identify and react to obstacles. So, basically, you need to hone in on the details if you want to level up your game as an entrepreneur. 2. Communication Entrepreneurs have to know how to communicate to succeed. Explaining your brand and company to investors, clients, and partners is a vital part of running a startup. 3. Persistence Persistence is even considered by many to be more important than planning in leading to success. Need an example? The iPhone and iPod weren’t released until Steve Jobs returned to Apple after being fired from the company he founded. The guy had persistence, that’s for sure. 4. Risk taking Entrepreneurs are known for their higher-than-average risk appetite. Because they’re not established yet, entrepreneurs often take many more risks than larger companies (or non-entrepreneurial people), but the risks aren’t random. Any transformation is a risk, and remaining cool, calm, and stable before, during, and after keeps things running stress-free.
