Do you consider yourself to be a successful woman entrepreneur? Today’s women business owners are highly skilled, talented, sharp and technologically savvy.
But more than that, they all share one common denominator – they have an unstoppable entrepreneurial drive and spirit that keeps them going!
There’s no doubt that more women are entering the business world today than ever before – there are those venturing in after years of child-rearing, multi-taskers who are balancing both business and family life and women with a strong entrepreneurial drive ready to take on the world.
It can be said that women are wired for juggling business and family and multi-tasking, but do all women have what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur?
Here are top 10 questions to ask yourself to assess if you make the grade to be a successful entrepreneur:
- Have I always wanted to be my own boss?
- Do I take direction well from others, or have a mind of my own and want to live on my own terms?
- Am I ambitious?
- Is money a motivating factor for me? Do I want to build wealth?
- Can I take calculated risks?
- Do I like to be in control?
- Can I handle failure? Can I fail and start again?
- Am I passionate about what I am doing?
- Do I make decisions quickly and can set things in motion?
- Do I like to get things done and not procrastinate?
- Do I look at the big picture, can plan and start things with the end in mind?
How many did you check off? Even if you picked a few and have the motivation and drive to pursue your dreams, you have an entrepreneurial spirit waiting to emerge.
