Small Business Success: What It Takes

Dave Lorenzo offers this list of core competencies required to be successful in starting (and running) a successful small business:

There are ten personality traits that successful business owners possess – at least to some degree. Read the list below and see how many of them apply to you:
  • Willingness to Sacrifice
  • Service Orientation
  • Leadership Ability
  • Business Intelligence and Creativity
  • Management Ability and Organization
  • Optimism
  • Persistence
  • Competitive Nature
  • Sales Orientation
  • Confidence

BOTTOMLINE: "If one or more of these traits is not second nature to you, don’t fret. During the next two weeks we will be discussing each of them in detail. We’ll talk about ways to leverage your current skills, knowledge and experience to make up for a lack of strength in one or more of these areas."
