Introduction
There are very few people who wake up every day and say that they are eager to
go to work. There are even fewer people who wake up and announce to the
world that they are happy to work for “the man” and listen to a boss. Most people
want to work for themselves and run their own businesses. They want to be an
entrepreneur and they want to be able to work for themselves.
Not everyone is cut out to be an entrepreneur. There are specific traits that a
person has to have in order to be an entrepreneur. They must be natural leaders,
not followers. They must be organized and have a decent memory for what
needs to be done. The entrepreneur needs to be able to use common sense and
have a level head when faced with the challenges of running a business. Once
the business grows to the point where employees can be hired, fairness is
expected from this new boss. A technological ability is not a requirement, but it
does help quite a bit.
There are some exercises that can be done to strengthen each of these
necessary traits in a person who wants to be his or her own boss. These
exercises help to develop new means of reasoning and thinking. They also help
to strengthen a person’s habits and provide a new mode of operation for that
person. This can help a person to develop the traits that he or she needs in order
to become a successful business person and entrepreneur.

Who is an Entrepreneur
An entrepreneur is an individual who wants to engage in enterprise. He or she
develops an idea, putting forth their energy and efforts to making that idea a
reality. He or she also incurs all of the risk associated with the enterprise,
including the potential loss of all of the funds of the individual due to a failed
venture.
The entrepreneur is his or her own boss. They took an idea and developed it to
reality, opening their own business and creating a niche for their own business.
This does not mean that the entrepreneur is able to take time off and relax,
waiting for the money to roll in. In most cases, the entrepreneur works more
hours than the average hourly or salary employee.

The benefit to being an entrepreneur is that there is no one above him or her in
the chain of command. They are where the buck stops, every time. The
entrepreneur is the president, CEO and CFO of the business. The entrepreneur
is able to pay himself what he needs to from the company, while investing the
rest of it back into the company or business.
Most modern entrepreneurs start out online. This is because there is the least
amount of overhead when starting out online in comparison to engaging in brick
and mortar businesses. The modern entrepreneur is able to develop a website,
sell products or services online, and experience success at a higher level this
way.
There are some entrepreneurs who have invented new products or new services.
These inventor/entrepreneurs often pair up with larger corporations to have their
products developed and distributed without the entrepreneur actually taking part
in the process. This is rare, and most business owners find that they are involved
with every aspect of the business life.
Why it is Important to Identify Traits
It is very important to identify the traits of an entrepreneur before one decides to
attempt to be his own boss. As stated, not everyone is cut out for being a
business owner or entrepreneur. If this was the case, there would be no
employees, just employers. By recognizing the traits of business person and
determining if one has those traits, a lot of pain, monetary loss and mental
anguish can be avoided.
Most people have these traits to an extent. They also have other traits that can
be stronger and in direct conflict with the traits that make an entrepreneur. The
traits that are needed by a person to be his or her own boss include leadership,
drive, organization, memory, common sense, fairness, level headedness, and
technological ability to an extent. Most people have these traits. In addition, most

people also have sloth, laziness, disorder, irrational behavior, and disinterest.
These traits can greatly hinder a person from being the business leader that he
or she wants to be.
Just because the negative traits can make the positive traits more difficult to use
in a business setting, does not mean that a person should scrap his or her
dreams of being an independent business owner. Instead, by retraining the
manners of the mind, he or she is able to change the way he or she behaves.
This retraining can even create better business owners than those who were
born to be business leaders.
