Property can sometimes demand both an entrepreneurial mind and the necessary skill set to enable the shrewd investor to maximise the return they had calculated from each investment property. To succeed with investment requires the development of the right inner drive and level of determination, creative and innovative ways of thinking and being a bit of a risk taker.

The qualities possessed by successful entrepreneurs are similar. In order to achieve the seemingly impossible, thoughts, schemes and ventures are carefully examined, risks evaluated and profits calculated before being actioned.

Skills and qualities must be developed so that they can be used for future success. Developing a new enterprise may sound hard but entrepreneurs achieve through innovation, creativity and leadership.

There are thousands of business opportunities across many sectors that can be identified as potential new business enterprises. Choosing a business opportunity requires careful study and market research. Even if entrepreneurs are known to be risk-takers, they still have to make sure that they are entering a good business.

Being an entrepreneur is an exciting and challenging task. If you have the guts, the capital, the right inner passion, appropriate qualities, and skills, don’t hesitate to introduce something new to the market.

What personality traits do successful entrepreneurs like Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, James Caan, Theo Paphitis, Duncan Bannatyne and Chris Evans have that ordinary entrepreneurs don't?

1. Successful Entrepreneurs Thrive On Risk

Successful entrepreneurs are risk takers. Time, energy and resources are risked with the hope of building a strong business. If they fail, they risk losing everything they've ever owned. The ability to manage such risk is the main reason many businesses fail.

2. Successful Entrepreneurs Are Proactive and Learn From Mistakes Quickly

Things change fast in the business world, successful entrepreneurs know this. To stay on course and adapt quickly to the ever changing trend, successful entrepreneurs keep studying and learning.
Mistakes can cost money and pain, but they can also be part of the process of success and an excellent learning tool, giving entrepreneurs an opportunity to learn something new.

3. Successful Entrepreneurs Work Long Hours For Free

Building a business isn’t easy and requires time and dedication. Some entrepreneurs are known to work 70 – 80 hours per week while ordinary employees work 35 – 40 hours per week. Working for free is one of the traits of successful entrepreneurs that set them apart from others; they work on their business for many years without pay, re-investing profits into the business. To be a successful entrepreneur, you must always bear in mind that you are not building a job for a wage; you are building an asset that will generate a residual income for years.


4. Successful Entrepreneurs Are Not Afraid Of Debt, Responsibility Or Criticism.

We all have debt of one form or other - Mortgages, utility bills, credit cards, overdraft etc. Building a business is no different. Successful entrepreneurs know how to use debt to their advantage, using debt as an instrument and as leverage to build a business and get richer. Successful entrepreneurs are accountable and responsible for the success or failure of the business, shouldering the responsibility through trying times, if they fail, they are held responsible. Building a business comes with its own challenges; as an entrepreneur, you can be loved and hated by the public at the same time. Successful entrepreneurs devise a means to use criticism to make themselves, the business or product, better and stronger.



5. Successful Entrepreneurs Are Ambitious Opportunists

Successful entrepreneurs think and do things big, they are never satisfied with their current achievement; they believe there is always room for constant improvement and they go for it. Successful entrepreneurs share an ability to see opportunities, where others see problems. They know that behind every problem lies an opportunity

6. Successful Entrepreneurs Are The Leaders Of Creativity And Innovation.

Successful entrepreneurs are great leaders with a proven leadership strategy. They have the ability to bring out the best in employees. Inspiring creativity and fostering innovation. They also have the ability to hire and lead smarter individuals. They rarely work alone, joining forces with other entrepreneurs and professional advisers to build a stronger business.
