Great entrepreneurs don’t follow the herd, they have their own way of doing things. Working through complex problems and coming up with the right decisions, they trust their own instinct to make the final call.
They are also devoted to their business, often to the exclusion and thus detriment of other aspects of their lives. While most people work to live, great entrepreneurs live to work, driven by a burning passion for what they do – and to succeed.
They have no respect for the status quo – nor for those who tell them ‘this is how it’s done’. Great entrepreneurs honestly believe there is a desire for a product or they can find a better way to do something, and will ultimately prove it. They may not succeed the first time, but they dust themselves down and start again. It’s for that reason that many of the major moguls have a ‘superhero’ quality: quite simply, they are truly special.
