3. Tolerance of Ambiguity


This classic trait is the definition of risk-taking–the ability to withstand the fear of uncertainty and potential failure.

4. Vision


One of the defining traits of entrepreneurship is the ability to spot an opportunity and imagine something where others haven’t.

Entrepreneurs have a curiosity that identifies overlooked niches and puts them at the forefront of innovation and emerging fields.

They imagine another world and have the ability to communicate that vision effectively to investors, customers and staff.

5. Self-belief


Self-confidence is a key entrepreneurial trait. You have to be crazy-sure your product is something the world needs and that you can deliver it to overcome the naysayers, who will always deride what the majority has yet to validate.

6. Flexibility


Business survival, like that of the species, depends on adaptation. Your final product or service likely won’t look anything like what you started with.

Flexibility that allows you to respond to changing tastes and market conditions is essential.

7. Rule-breaking


Entrepreneurs exist to defy conventional wisdom. Doing what the majority isn’t doing is the nature of entrepreneurship, which is where the supply of inner resources comes in.
