Module 1c: Common Entrepreneurial Traits
Instructions: Individuals who have succeeded in starting and operating their own business organizations have certain characteristics in common. Below is a list of the most common characteristics in this regard.
This list is valuable as a basis for you to compare yourself to and determine how closely you match up with these characteristics. Its not a problem if you don't match on all of them, but where you may be missing in the match should give you cause for further thought to see how this might affect your own chances for success. Review this list and talk it over with someone else - your partner, mentor or counselor. Using this as a basis for discussion can often uncover other issues affecting the business development process. Read this list carefully, complete the form, and be as honest with yourself as possible when checking off which level of response you can best identify with.
