1. Expert knowledge- you really must have the experience and a deep understanding  of your product or service to sell yourself properly
  2. Strategic  Vision – you must be driven to succeed in your business, living and breathing your dream
  3. Carpe Diem – You must be able to seize the opportunities and the moments given to you.
  4. Networking – a good networker will not only look for opportunities for himself but keep an eye open for others; a good referral will always come back to you.
  5. Extroverted- Unless you’re running an internet business with no accessibility to others or live in a cave you cannot be a loner in business. You must like people especially your customers.
  6. Optimistic- If you tend to look at the glass half empty you will find it hard to have the necessary enthusiasm to excite others about your business.
  7. Handle Stress- Let me tell you this is an important one. Being an entrepreneur is not for the faint of heart, you may need to be able to manage stress.
  8. Persistence- Stick-to-it-ive-ness or what ever you call it. Brian Scudamore of 1-800-Got-Junk tried to obtain that memorable phone number which was already in use. He made 78 phone calls before someone said he could have it. Determination is key.
  9. Lifelong Learning- Learn from your mistakes as well as your victories. Successful entrepreneurs see business as a continuous learning experience with a lot of fine tuning of accepted practices and procedures.
  10. Communication- You must be able to get your message out to your customers, as well as your employees.
