10 Traits for Entrepreneurial Success
Entrepreneurs come in a variety of personalities and backgrounds. Some demand attention when they
enter a room. Others are low-key and may go unnoticed in a gathering of exuberant personalities. Inner characteristics—
not outward persona—are what help an individual be successful. You can learn to be
profitably self-employed provided you are passionate about your business and acquire the attributes
necessary to achieve your dream. This seminar explores traits such as financial realism, passion,
prudent decision making and seven more. The essence is about strengths that help entrepreneurs succeed.

in starting a business. Participants will learn how to gain a better understanding of various industries and
potential niches. This workshop covers what and how to research including 38 sources of information
and 21 topics to explore.
