I wanted to take this opportunity to write about a subject that I often get asked about…… what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur.
My father retuned from World War II and almost immediately opened up his own small menswear store. The evidence indicates he took to the task naturally, with true entrepreneurial drive. He was one of the best salesmen I ever saw and would think nothing about working thirteen hour days, six days a week in order to insure the success of his business.
In studying my father and other successful entrepreneurs, I have made the observation that a commonality that they all have is the feeling of being their own boss and the fact that their future is in their own control.
Entrepreneurs come in every shape, size, gender, and socioeconomic background. Some, like my father, were entrepreneurs from the first day they opened their businesses. Others became entrepreneurs out of necessity. For instance, I know of HUGELY successful entrepreneurs who got fired from jobs. Downsizing in corporate America has created armies of new entrepreneurs.
Now here is an interesting twist to being able to being a successful entrepreneur. You also need to be able to recognize and accept failure. I’m told Babe Ruth struck out 1330 times, but he’s best remembered for hitting 714 home runs. So, in spite of missteps, entrepreneurs are a very special breed who do not give up on the larger goal.
