Signs that you’re an entrepreneur by heart

An Entrepreneur is an enterprising individual who builds capital through risk and/or initiative.  You might be surprised how many “entrepreneurs” are not at the helm of a growing business, but rather one of the employees helping to build it.

Taken from this article (http://www.inc.com/karl-and-bill/5-signs-that-youre-an-entrepreneur-at-heart.html)  Here are three  things about entrepreneurial  mind and personality, taken from the article:

1. Entrepreneurs are passionate, inside and outside of work.

Whatever they immerse themselves in, entrepreneurs typically invest fully and passionately. This extends beyond business building into many aspects of life outside of the workplace.

2. Entrepreneurs are committed to building businesses, not just coming up with great ideas.

Most people with ideas don’t build businesses. Most entrepreneurs we know look for good businesses to build, based on their area of expertise. We’ve met countless individuals with a “great idea” who never turn that idea into a successful business.

3. Entrepreneurs know how to focus, yet are comfortable moving in multiple directions at once.

It’s notable how many entrepreneurial business owners we know who are building multiple businesses at once, or are leading non-profit organizations at the same time they are building for-profit businesses. Oftentimes this comes across as restlessness, but is really the manifestation of a high level of energy that, when focused, can lead to amazing accomplishments.
