Best 10 Qualities of an Entrepreneur



Entrepreneurship is one of the things South Africans always debating about, but never come up with proper direction to make it happen. The Vast of the institutions are dedicated to educate South Africans to get involved in entrepreneurship arena. But without proper characteristics of entrepreneurship in my life time I don’t see South Africa excel to achieve this goal. But let me not blame SA, other countries to date, no single research has been able to pinpoint the exact personality traits that will predict whether or not one will be successful.

#1. Craving to achieve.

No entrepreneur will deny this one, the mission that drives us to business environment is to establish a successful ventures.     Are you really craving to achieve success? I suggest you to work hard on your planning phase. I believe that the better the foundation the better life time of the build promise.


#2  Hard-work

A “hard worker” is the synonym of job every seeker and entrepreneur; along this the hard work there is always better results. The myth of entrepreneurs work harder than average managers, they are perceived as “Workaholistics” who are inspired to achieve their goals.


#3. Encourage quality

Believe me there is nothing customers like than quality. You are as young as you start your own venture in your environment that is bombarded with big boys that have been in this industry for a long time. Trust me the on only thing that will beat these boys is quality.

#4. Accepting responsibilities

Once you make that decision of being entrepreneur you also perceive the new venture and accept full responsibility for it. The feel is morally, legally, financially and mentally accountable for the venture.

#5.  Reward-oriented

Entrepreneurs have a need for achievement, work hard and want to take responsibility but also want to be well rewarded for their efforts. Let me share with you a secret. Do you know that recognition and respect is the best rewards entrepreneurs can celebrate in their journey more than financially reward.

“Recognition and respect is the seed to financially stability”

#6. Optimistic

Your mental attitude or the way you view the world that interprets situations and events as being best (optimized). Because of their drive to success, entrepreneurs live by the doctrine that the present is the best time and that anything is possible if you want it badly enough.


#7. Confidence

Self-confidence does not necessarily imply 'self-belief' or a belief in one's ability to succeed. When one does not dwell on negative consequences one can be more 'self-confident' because one is worrying far less about failure or the disapproval of others following potential failure.  They are confident with the knowledge that they will make their businesses succeed. They exude that confidence in everything they do.

#8. Competitiveness

Competitiveness pertains to the ability and performance of the business; many companies are formed because an entrepreneur knows that they can do a job better than another. They need to win at the sports they play and need to win at the businesses they create. The concept of competitiveness has emerged as a new paradigm in economic development. Competitiveness captures the awareness of both the limitations and challenges posed by global competition, at a time when effective government action is constrained by budgetary constraints and the private sector faces significant barriers to competing in domestic and international markets.

#9 Creativity

The relationships between personality type , creativity ability and mental health, the potential for fostering creativity through education and training, especially as augmented by technology, and the application of creative resources to improve the effectiveness of learning and teaching processes.   Entrepreneurs often come up with solutions which are the synthesis of other items to build business success.

#10 Passion

Passion is the most important trait of the successful entrepreneur.  The successful entrepreneur will always be reading and researching ways to make the business better. According to European philosopher Michel Meyer they have aroused harsh judgments as the representation of a force of excess and lawlessness in humanity that produces troubling, confusing paradoxes. Meyers sees philosophers have treated the passions as a given expression of human nature, leaving the question of whether the passions "torture people because it blinds them, or, on the contrary, does it permit them to apprehend who and what we really are?
