As an entrepreneur you have to fit a whole lot of hats on your head to stay in the game, and the task of keeping up with everything and having your business continue going forward can be absolutely daunting. But there are a few qualities you should practice if you want to be a proper successful businessperson.
Organization - it is absolutely key to managing your business. You need to know where your money is going from to maximize profits and trim excess spending where it is not garnering you enough return. You also need to maximize your use of your time. You are the most important part of your business and when you waste time, you are wasting the businesses time. Make use of a business planner, because your clock is the businesses clock and a successful business runs on time.
Reliability - after organization you need to be reliable to all of your clients, investors, partners, everyone who helps your business runs. No successful business person is going to get to the top by being a flake. Your word is your bond and your bonds should never be broken. If you can’t make it to a meeting, can’t reach a deadline, or anything of that sort, it is going to be a mar on your record and can lose you future contracts.
Accountability - because you can’t always be reliable. There are unforeseen circumstances that will blindside you from time to time but you should own these faults. It might not be your fault, but there was a problem, an error, some form of conflict and when dealing with that you should own it and make it a thing to make sure that problem never comes up again. You can have mars on your record, but if you keep driving on to be better you will earn a lot of respect from your employees, partners and clients.Healthy - probably the most overlooked or neglected aspect of many people trying to become the model business person. Good lifestyle choices are not only good for your body but also for your mind. A balanced diet and a daily workout keep you motivated, sharp and ready to take on the day's work with ambition - probably the biggest asset you can generate as an entrepreneur. Making healthy choices for yourself can help you make even more forward thinking plans and stick to them to see your business grow to the top.
