They are constantly looking for ways to improve. They're creative, innovative and resourceful.If something is not working for them they simply change. Innovative entrepreneurs are often at theforefront of their industry so they hear the words "it can't be done" quite a bit.They readjust their path if the criticism is constructive and useful to their overall plan, otherwise theywill simply disregard the comments as pessimism. Also, the best entrepreneurs know that rejectionand obstacles are a part of any leading business and they deal with them appropriately.True entrepreneurs are resourceful, passionate and driven to succeed and improve. They're pioneersand are comfortable fighting on the frontline. The great ones are ready to be laughed at and criticizedin the beginning because they can see their path ahead and are too busy working towards their dream.
