» Personalities of A Successful Entrepreneur Smart Info Buzz

Why some entrepreneurs succeed, and they seem to have all the success while the rest just keep failing? Is it simply because of the luck, or is it something that anyone can master?

 

As a venture capital investor, and also started several web businesses myself, it is interesting to notice the characteristics that can identify successful personalities.

 

For Angel Investors or venture capital investors, it is more important to identify these personalities than the actual business. Business plans can be written to perfect, but it is the people who are driving it.

The Rise of the New Contract Worker

The Rise of the New Contract Worker | We're in Business | Scoop.it
More and more people are choosing a contingent work style — that is, temporary work that may be project-based or time-based — over full-time or part-time work. Temporary placement service provider Adecco predicts that the rate of growth in contingent workers will be three to four times the growth rate among traditional workforces, and that they eventually will make up about 25% of the global workforce.

 

One reason for the increasing popularity of contingent work is involuntary: not everyone can find full-time employment. But, intriguingly, more and more people are choosing a contingent work style.

 

Some contingent workers say they are seeking better work/life balance; others want to create or design their own careers by choosing the kind of work or projects that create a unique set of skills, making them more desirable prospective employees. Contingent employment can expose individuals to a broad variety of challenges, demanding constant learning and new skills, which make work more interesting for them.

The Diplomat

We’ve all known at least one great diplomat in our lives — you know, the person who can tell you to “go to hell” in such a way you look forward to the trip. It’s an amazing skill and one not easily acquired. But it’s worth pursing, particularly in sales. Why? Because you’re going to meet hundreds of people who are right, even though they’re wrong. You’re going to meet people with chips on their shoulders, anger issues, control issues, and all kinds of personality issues that are going to make it impossible for you to simply tell them the truth and keep their goodwill. For most of us, the art of telling someone they’re wrong, or off base, or even clueless takes a lifetime to acquire.

Take yourself out of your messaging

One of my favorite movies of all time is Adaptation***. It’s a movie about a writer trying to adapt a book (The Orchid Thief) into a movie. The writer ends up writing a screenplay about the task of adapting the book. In one scene in the movie, the writer says in horror: “I’ve written myself into my screenplay.”
