For most people starting out on their career or wanting a career change, being an entrepreneur and owning your own company is the dream.

But becoming an entrepreneur isn’t always for everyone. It takes a special set of skills to make it in business on your own, and that’s why only a select few succeed.

GlobalMessaging have created an infographic detailing the anatomy of an entrepreneur. It takes a look at the character traits and talents needed to become an entrepreneur and make it big in business.

Some of the characteristics are:

  • Motivated and Focused – motivation and focus comes from a genuine interest in what you are doing. Regular goal-setting gives you targets and keeps you engaged in your venture
  • Creative and Innovative – being creative with your products, services and operations appeals to both customers and employees alike.
  • Risk Taking and Courageous – being comfortable with taking risks is vital for businesses to grow and succeed. But it is important to understand what risks are worthwhile and to not be impulsive.
  • Passionate and Determined – if you passionately believe in your venture and refuse to give up, success is bound to follow.
  • Strong Work Ethic – a true entrepreneur knows that nothing just comes to you; you have to go out into the world and earn it yourself.
