Do you have what it takes to succeed in business?
Character traits for business success! When you compare the entrepreneurs behind successful small businesses, a handful of character traits rise to the top. Of course, there may be hundreds of other remarkable character and personality traits that define your favorite successful small business owner.
For today, lets focus our attention on the most important character traits for business success.
Character Trait #1 – BE DRIVEN
Most small business owners are driven to succeed. They want to see their businesses grow, from startup to established business. Drive is a very common characteristic among successful entrepreneurs since starting a home business can be challenging, and some challenges call for a moderate amount of competitiveness, determination and motivation.

Character Trait #2 – STAY RESILIENT
Being a small business owner comes with its up and downs. There are going to be victories, many setbacks, some chaos and on occasion, calm waters. Especially in the Avon business you can go from a high “Hurrah! I have an order.” to a low “Everybody else said ‘No!'” in the same day. It’s a constant up and down.
The most successful entrepreneurs are those who are resilient and able to bounce back after an unexpected challenge. They get back up after facing a setback, no matter how big or small.
Character Trait #3 – HAVING FOCUS
Many small business owners handle a vast array of responsibilities in their businesses, from social media to selling, recruiting, bookkeeping, answering the phone/email, etc. We wear many different hats during the course of the workday. The ability to block out distractions and focus on the immediate issue, task or goal, as well as the bigger picture, can be a key trait in a successful entrepreneur.

Character Trait #4 – OPEN MINDEDNESS
While focus is an important trait, found in most successful small business owners, it’s also important to keep an open mind. Always try to consider different perspectives. Small business owners who are willing to consider alternative ideas and try new processes may be more likely to reach significant levels of success.
