Coming up with ideas or complaining about existing solutions may come to you easily but do you have any of following traits to be an “entrepreneur”? Taking an idea, scaling it into a business and scaling that into a revenue generating company takes more than just, “I can do that better!”
So, let’s find out!
Being committed to an idea, especially for any investor giving you their money, is critical for any entrepreneur to expand an idea into a viable business.
More than just an idea, it is the ability to feel and know the solution that you have inside and out. That takes intense passion, or love, for not only an idea but the process of expanding a business. You have to love it to succeed. It is as simple as that.
Yes, times can become tough but they will become better as well. Having the sense of positiveness to any circumstance or issue is important to persevere the toughest situations. That ability, comes in handy when building a company as well. Not every day will be sunshine…expect some rain but don’t give up.
Yes, we all would love to solve every single problem or issue we come across but having a sharp focus on just ONE issue is important to succeeding. Remember the saying, “Jack of all trades, master of none,” because that is exactly what a non-focused individual is. Be the “master” of your trade (especially if you have investor money in your company).
Personal hint from the INISMO founders: You need to be fearless which means to push forward when a problem arises and to have the persistence to find solutions for it. It is necessary that you always keep in mind that there is a way to solve your issue but stay focused. As a founder, you need to know that your vision may stay the same but how you go about achieving it with your startup may change (which is completely ok and normal!).
