The Primary Qualities of Successful Entrepreneurs

I just read an article on Inc.com about the primary qualities of successful entrepreneurs. I can’t say that I fully agree on the nine qualities the author state are key. But I do acknowledge that everyone defines success differently so the primary qualities you determine are crucial will depend on how you define success. One point I did wholly agree with is the following:

“They don’t think work/life balance; they just think life.”

As an entrepreneur “you are your business. Your business is your life, just like your life is your business – which is also true for family, friends, and interests—so there is no separation, because all those things make you who you are.

Remarkable entrepreneurs find ways to include family instead of ways to exclude work. They find ways to include interests, hobbies, passions, and personal values in their daily business lives.”

Entrepreneurs who can’t do the above have damaged relationships, failed marriages, and exhibit the  workaholic tendency to avoid intimacy by saying “I have to work”. By blurring the boundaries and making all you just an integral part of your life, you live the best life possible as an entrepreneur. (That’s my $0.02. You are entitled to a totally different opinion!)
