Common Qualities of Successful Entrepreneurs | Benedetto Cerilli

  1. 1. COMMON QUALITIES O F S U C C E S S F U L E N T R E P R E N E U R S BENEDETTO CERILLI
  2. 2. ENTREPRENEURIAL TRAITS Many entrepreneurs have a number of common traits that allow them to succeed with a surprisingly high degree of certainty. Their success is not simply attributed to fate but to their knowledgeability, diligence, and persistence.
  3. 3. PROACTIVE RISK TAKERS Many people are highly risk- averse and unable to take even moderate risks, much less making big moves like quitting their jobs for an uncertain future. That doesn’t mean that the best entrepreneurs are gamblers. The best entrepreneurs take calculated risks.
  4. 4. KNOW THE MARKET The best idea in the world isn’t going to make someone a successful entrepreneur if the total available market turns out to be just $1 million. On the other hand, a market in the billions of dollars for an all-new product is a great opportunity. The best entrepreneurs are able to spot those great opportunities and tailor products or services that serve them.
  5. 5. CREATE REAL VALUE The best entrepreneurs are able to spot niches that have gone largely unserved. They are able to see real market needs and then step in to fill those needs with products that create high levels of value for their customers.
  6. 6. HAVE A STRONG PERSONALITY Most entrepreneurs have experienced failure in some way, but the successful ones are able to recover, learn from their mistakes, and continue moving forward. Confidence in their abilities, passion for their work, and the motivation to proceed under any circumstances are just a few of the traits that drive an entrepreneur forward.
  7. 7. WHAT MAKES AN ENTREPRENEUR? Not every entrepreneur is the same. There may be some entrepreneurs who are more cautious or who create products for a market that doesn't yet exist. Regardless of these details, successful entrepreneurs tend to share some of these qualities, and they cultivate them over time - learning, growing, and improving to become success stories.
