A lot of research has been done on this subject. However, the complexity of human per- sonality and the hundreds of exter- nal factors that affect entrepreneurial success make it difficult to draw accurate con- clusions. Successful entrepreneurs can come from backgrounds of poverty or wealth, popularity or social rejection, broken homes or close family ties. They can be old or young, regular folks or real od- dballs. Before starting a business, they may have been retired or un- employed, and ventured off in a direction entirely different from previous careers or experience. Common Success Factors One of the most common success traits of entrepreneurs is the intense desire to succeed. They want to  They work long, hard hours and maintain a high level of energy throughout the long days. They start early and are self-starters. They are doers, not talkers. Even when they worked for someone else, they had a reputation of getting the job done. This intensity is woven through every activity. They live and breathe their businesses. They are over-achievers and are reluctant to accept defeat. Per- severance is ano{her word often used in describing the typical entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurs are frequently bored with repetitive tasks. They constantly seek new challenges. They love competition and seek activities that stimulate personal growth and development. The easily bored entrepreneur should not be con- fused with the person who never finishes what he or she starts. The restless entrepreneur usually finishes a task but will not be happy doing it again and again. Good Communicators Communication is a factor that weighs heavily in the success factor scale. There is no substitute for the ability to express ideas and opinions well. This is true in the political and corporate world, as well as in the small business arena. Strong communication skills also include the ability to think and lis- ten. Many entrepreneurs become successful after listening to their customers. They utilize customer input to modify business practices. These modifications to operating proce- dares bring business owners closer to the customer and place them in a better position to satisfy neexls and wants. In addition, most successful business people have a strong self- image. They feel good about who they are. They like other people and tend to get along well with a variety of friends. They tend to be independent but truly adaptable. They are often characterized as en- thusiastic and optimistic. Even when things are tough, they believe that tomorrow will be a better day. While possession of these characteristics is no guarantee of success, it can serve as an in- dicator. Any person considering the entrepreneurial challenge /.e us do your Ot/v/!

An honest evaluation ot your personality, attitude and motivation will guide you in the appropriate business direction. We have profiled a number of these traits in a "just for fun" business personality test that we use in our start-up seminars at the Small Business Development Center. We call it the "Entrepreneurial Success Quotient Test'. We ask participants to answer 25 questions pertaining to the areas of personality, attitude, skills and experience. When the answers are tabulated, the would- be entrepreneur has some idea of the correlation of their personality to that of successful entrepreneurs.
