When starting your home business, keep
in mind that no two people are alike. However
there are some shared personality traits
that are common to those who have started
and operate a success business.
One of the commonalities among successful
business owners is that they have an entrepreneurial
spirit. What are the traits of
an entrepreneur spirit?
Lets see what some of these traits in the
MLM Entrepreneur are:
Self-starters are the type of people who
do not sits around thinking about something,
over and over again, and yet don't take
any action to get it done. They decide on
what needs to be done, and they simple Do
It! The self-started is a Self-Motivate
For example: You are in need of your own
website, but income limits you from just
hiring a web design company to make that
site. As a self-starter, you would go to
work gathering all the information pertinent
to web design and development, develop and
design your site. In the end you would have
a website that You have developed.
One vital trait of a self-starter it to
know their strengths and weaknesses and
be able to accept them.
The self-motivated individual has a lot
of motivation and drive. Because each person
is a unique individual, one person's
motivations may be different from everyone
For example, your motivation for starting
you home business could be simply to earn
$500 or $1,000 per month or $10,000 or $20,000
per month. Or it could be that you want
to home school your kids, and that requires
earning an income working from home. Your
level of motivation to a large measure will
be dependent up on your purpose and level
of commitment. How big is Your dream?
The creative individual has a lots of good
ideas. They are usually able to come up
with good ideas and problem solving solutions.
Many of their ideas are often the results
of listening and observing other business.
They focus on finding solutions, rather
than dwelling on the
For example, if you have a limited advertising
budget, you would get to work finding all
the available free advertising avenues opposed
to mulling over and over how limited your
budget is. This could result not only in
exploding your advertising program, but
with your creativity you would now have
the knowledge from research, which you could
pass on to your downline or package and
sell. Thus, resolving the problem and creating
an additional income.
The self-disciplined individual is one who
does not need someone standing over or by
them telling them what, how and when to
do. They don't need anyone telling to get
something done. They are able to determine
what needs to be done, then set aside time
to do it.
They do not easily become discouraged. They
do not interpret mistakes as a sign of failure,
but instead accepts that everyone makes
them and use them as learning tools and
Where a business may fail, and many do first
time around, a self-disciplined individual
does not a accept that THEY are a failure.
They simply learn from the mistakes and
use them as a launching pad for success.
The self-reliant is the independent person.
This person does not mind making the necessary
sacrifices where needed to learn what needs
to be done, so that they can get on with
the task at hand rather than depending on
someone else to do it for them.
When they don't know something, it's natural
and comfortable for them to seek, ask for
and receiving advice. They recognize that
no one can make it totally on their own...no
one has all knowledge. They normally have
a strong support network of associates,
family and friend who are able to give objective
advice where needed.
The self-reliant, not always, but usually
are willing to take "calculated risk".
They use caution and carefully assess a
situation first, before jumping in head
They are firm believers that their success
is in their own hands. They believe they
have or are can learn and develop the skills
needed, and that with hard work they will
be successful, opposed to believing in "fate".
They focus on success instead of failure.
They see the positive outcome opposed to
challenges. They don't see the world as
a place where they can get, but as a place
where they can give...where they can make
This is not to say that lacking any one
of these traits means
you won't be successful. These are all traits
that CAN be
learned and developed. Only you can decide
if this is worth the effort... I believe
As an entrepreneur in MLM you are adaptable.
You'll find yourself wearing many different
hats such as: marketer, promoter, public
relations, motivator, sponsor, webmaster...and
so forth. You are not afraid of chance and
are opened and flexible to them.
Successful businesses are not built over
night, but over time. As a MLM entrepreneur
you are willing to go the extra mile, put
forth the time and effort needed to build
a successful business organization. You
are willing to take on the challenges of
becoming a leader.
To sum this all up, the traits of entrepreneurship
are Positive! We might say it's the development
to strong character traits.
