What is the most important quality of an entrepreneur?
Working on my 4th company (CrowdFunde) I agree creativity is more important than passion. I've created companies based on passion and they don't dance as well. Passion can be limiting. The "blind side" of passion is bigger. When you develop a company that is the barest outlines of something you know will change 10x before launch it "dances" better. It is important to be passionate about your belief in the movement you've joined. Successful entrepreneurs don't make any money until one magic day they do.
Money is an important scorecard, one tht builds confidence and the ability to do it again (why there are so many "serial startup entrepreneurs"). But money can't be the main motivation or you will never make it out past the breakers. Any startup will wobble, fall and drown a little before it learns to surf. If money is the only motivation or you are so passionate you can't see the wave about to hit you and your new company then you drown. Drowning a little is also part of the game. So never give up. Come up for air, up your creativity and go again.
