11-17-2020: The Essential Qualities of a Successful Entrepreneur

What makes a successful entrepreneur? What makes a successful innovator? Hint: It’s not DNA.

In this week’s episode of the SparkCom Podcast, Manny guides a conversation on the traits, experiences, and mentality of successful startup entrepreneurs. There’s a level of spirit and drive that not every entrepreneur possesses, but can possess to succeed. Understandably, many are held back by the fear of failure and of losing the security that comes with a day job. So here’s one question to ask yourself before becoming a full-fledged entrepreneur: Can you live without a paycheck to do something that you love?

There’s a few key traits that companies and entrepreneurs must embody to not only be successful, but also to become true game changers. For one, you have to be willing to step outside of your comfort zone. On another note, you must strive to build something bigger than yourself and create something invaluable for the evolving world around you. NOW is the best time in human history to start a business and become successful, with the greatest amount of resources, in the shortest amount of time, ever. 

You have what it takes... but when will you start? And what will it take you to succeed?
