Some of the top characteristics of an entrepreneur show that they are truly committed to the success of their new business venture. For example, a real entrepreneur will actively seek responsibility and leadership roles rather than following the crowd. Another characteristic of committed entrepreneurs is that they exhibit high levels of ambition and confidence in their plans and they are not afraid to take risks in order to realize their goals.
True entrepreneurs are likely to have a variety of innovative ideas, some of which are more practical than others. They are willing to test out ideas to see which ones work, and do not view failure as a disaster but rather as a learning opportunity to improve on an idea so it will work better on the second try than it did on the first.
