“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer. ” ~ Nolan Bushnell
How to Be A Successful Entrepreneur
- Tell me about yourself. Are you motivated. Are you hard working. Can you plan your next day before you go to bed at night. Do you get up early and go to bed early. Do you see distraction as another way to get something done. Can you save for a rainy day. Do you have an idea that people need, want, and can use. It takes all of this plus more to be a successful entrepreneur.
- It has been my experience that there are two kinds of people. Workers and business owners. It is hard enough to be a boss, let alone a business owner. To be brutally honest, some people simply make better business owners than workers.

Successful entrepreneurs often demonstrate these 7 characteristics:
1 – They seek knowledge bigger than themselves. This comes in many forms. Reading books, online research, interviews, asking questions, participating in their and in your community, gaining insight through participation in local and long distance opportunities, with people both of like and different perspectives – other than their own. Growth through outreach.

2 – They know who their customer is because they are developing their product to meet their customer base and satisfy their market. They know what kind of help their customers need because they ask. They plan their day the night before and get enough sleep to get up early so they can get as much done as possible.

3 – They look after themselves so that they have the stamina and health to put in 12-hour days and work like dogs to succeed. Their focus is on their work and not on their social calendar, or what ‘other people’ are doing. They eat better, get more sleep and get more exercise.

4 – They know how to say, “No.” They are present with their limitations and know when they can’t take on more – For everyone’s sake. They talk to other mentors and stay in touch with those people who help them stay focused and inspired. They know when to not be distracted by others.

5 – They know how to save money. They often don’t have time to spend much money, but their impetuous buying habits are significantly less than the neighbor buying boats and toys on credit cards.

6 – They take on opportunity as if there is not going to be another chance. Unafraid of their own lack of confidence, they exercise caution by performing their due diligence and unless they have a really great reason, they normally have enough information so that they rarely jump into a swamp without waders on. Every day is another chance to do something great. Every moment they sit and wait is a lost opportunity.

7 – They understand that Faith is not about everything turning out OK. Faith is about being OK no matter how things turn out. They not only invite criticism, they welcome it. Constructive criticism and ‘failure’ are seen as merely – One more way to NOT do business.
Feedback, and setbacks helps them, “. . . . figure their . . . .shit . . . out.”
These people, they don’t give up easy. They understand that education and experience sometimes take a back seat to knowledge, attitude and good habits.
Instead of giving up at the first sign of defeat, they are looking for a way to do ‘that thing’ different. And better. They are developing, or have already thought of a, “Plan B.”
So, while the rest of us are simply ‘thinking about an idea,’ these successful entrepreneurs are out there making their idea happen.
Look around you. Every single thing you can see or imagine began as an idea.
“It had long since come to my attention
that people of accomplishment rarely
sat back and let things happen to them.
They went out and . . .
Happened to things.” ~ Leonardo Da Vinci
