8 Qualities of Fearless Entrepreneurs
Being a leader it is important to be confident and to show no fear. This quality is makes the differences between leaders. As a small business owner you have to take risks, you can’t be afraid to fail.
"In my office, the term badass is thrown around a lot," says Dr. Shelley Provost, a partner and director of happiness of the venture incubator Lamp Post Group. "We use it to describe many things: a person's performance or accomplishments or ability to close a sale or turn a profit, or how well they ask someone out on a date--basically their overall potential for awesomeness."
These are the qualities that Provost says set true fearless business leaders apart:
They say yes first--then figure out how to deliver. Fearless leaders are confident. If a job is nowhere near completed they will find a way to get it done. They trust their own abilities, but they trust the people around them just as much.
They think differently than everyone else. They can tackle old problems with a variety of creative solutions.
They speak up. Fearless leaders aren’t afraid to speak out there opinion with something.
They enthusiastically share their awesome skills. They are always teaching others.
They live by their own code. Whether their code is to be a creative force in the world, to disrupt technologies, or to challenge others to examine their lives, fearless leaders are unwilling to compromise their principles and beliefs for the comfort or approval of others.
They do what others only wish they could do. Rather than research and dwell on and discuss a problem to death, fearless leaders find a solution by actually doing things.
They never, ever, ever give up. They are focus on their goal and won’t give up till they reach that goal.
They ignore the haters. There are many reasons to listen to the haters: to save face, to remain comfortable, to be secure, to not look like the fool. A fearless leader ignores them.
