Entrepreneur Personality Traits & Characteristics:

If you show these qualities and have an idea for a business, but need support navigating the steps to achieving entrepreneurship, these tips below will help map out your entrepreneurial vision to make a plan.
Self-Discovery with Reiki often leads to individuals finding their passion and ignites the confidence to achieve it. Getting clear on what and how you want to achieve your new business, starts by building the road to success.
How to Clear the Road toward Entrepreneurial Success
Going from the nine to five grind to the entrepreneurial spirit may not be the easiest path, but it is something you can achieve. However, there are several steps you need to take before forging head first into business ownership.
Getting clear on what it is you want to achieve is an integral first step. It is not as simple as coming up with an idea and writing it down, you have to write down your goals, but even more importantly, you have to break them down. Being specific is not an option; it is mandatory. You need to have clear, specific goals when it comes to starting a new business.
Create a Plan
Once you are clear on what your goal for your new business is, you have to create a plan for success. Write down what your goal is, how you will achieve that goal in smaller steps and then break that list down even further.
A good goal must be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely. This process is also known as SMART goal setting. By getting in the habit of setting goals using the SMART method, you will have a better chance at overall success.
Next, it is time to take action steps. Action steps need more than just thinking about them. Declare aloud what your actions steps are. Find accountability partners or coaches to help you navigate and provide a sounding board. Booking a self-discovery session or sharing your plans with a close and trusted friend, will help you put some action behind your plan and build accountability.
If you are starting a new business of your own, do not be afraid to delegate tasks! Allow family members and friends to help take the load off somewhere else while you learn all you need to know about your new business endeavor! In addition to asking for help, learning to say ‘no’ so you can better manage your time will be necessary.
Sometimes, in order to create something new, we need to let go of something old. In order to clear the path and expand capacity while creating a new business, some things may not be a good fit in your life any more. You may have to let go of old ideas, relationships or activities so that you can expand in to your new role, but the discovery of self is so worth it and leads to greater manifestation power!
Finding the time to invest into yourself and your business venture is essential for success. On the journey to finding your first customer or client, following the steps above can make time management more achievable. Balance in all things is what leads to the greatest success overall!
