You Need Critical Business Knowledge
An entrepreneur must have clear knowledge of the current business trends that directly affect the business intended to be set up. For example, he'd have to know about the current economic crisis, inflation levels etc. óGuest daniel
Being a people person and making contacts is important. You should also say what you are going to do and then do what you say and give a bit more than what is expected. óGuest Dave
An entreprenuer should be creative his or her mind should be a think tank full of ideas... and these ideas should be actionable. óGuest Grace
He/She has perseverance, which is especially important if your business keeps falling. But if the entrepreneur really believes in what he is doing, perseverance will take him to success. óGuest Mary
In order to survive and thrive in business you have to be resourceful in problem solving, reaching out to those that can help. A business community is like one big family where the people share ideas, information and resources. You can't make it by yourself! óGuest Ranka Burzan
A positive mental attitude is crucial to deal with some of the ups and downs in business life. When you start out your day with a smile on your face and a positive outlook on life wonderful things can happen. There really is a bright side to everything you encounter in a day of business. Sometimes you may need to look a little harder. óGuest davescarpetcleaning
I believe an Entrepreneur must have follow through. It's not enough to have great ideas. You have to be able to map a plan and follow that map to its completion. You have to be able to stick to your plan. I think an entrepreneur probably gets ideas other for other opportunities but he/she must stay focused with the plan, blocking out any creative ideas not helpful to the current plan. óGuest susan
Training, Dedication and being Patient
Have a knowledge of what business he/she is taking, experience, risk taker, dedicated to know how to improve their product and how to improve, and more gain... óGuest firstname.lastname@example.org
Passion & Dedication
I would also say a passion and dedication beyond the norm - very much needed to get a visionary idea off the ground. óGuest Anna
Vision is the Main Thing
Vision. What do you want your business to be, how does it assist others and exactly what do you intend to do with the money? óJim C.
Energy Is a Key Requirement
I agree that discernment should be top of the list. I would also add high reserve of energy. I've never met a successful entrepreneur who lacked energy. They have energy for their idea (passion) and energy to handle long days and countless hours creating and growing their business. My advice, pick a business you are passionate about and take care of your emotional and physical health so you have enough energy to turn your idea into a successful business. óLiz
Have to Be a Risk-Taker
You have to be a risk-taker to be an entrepreneur. There are diferent levels of risk with different businesses, but if you can't accept risk, you'll never be successful because you'll never be able to push the envelope enough - or even have the brass to go out on your own. I think successful entrepreneurs are able to accept and deal with bigger levels of risk than average people. óDave
