For the Business Startup. You can do it, too. I have noticed certain characteristics of successful business owners and all these skills are learnable.
Success in business has nothing to do with how you dress, how you speak, where you were educated and it doesn’t matter if you have qualifications of any sort or several university degrees. Successful business people have a particular mental attitude irrespective of their backgrounds.

The skills are within you.
by Genevieve Yan-Colebourn There are just so many men and women who want to be valued for the effort they put into their work and they want to share in the financial rewards for their efforts. The reality, as we all know, is that in a job, you are paid “the going rate” irrespective of the value you create for your boss’ organisation. In today’s uncertain economic climate, the value of the worker is diminished further with many people regarded as providing “commodity” services. It is no wonder that many men and women, irrespective of their backgrounds, education or location, personal fulfilment to take control of their financial lives. Many want to be productive, to contribute services to the community and to be adequately rewarded. They seek to be productive by working in own business and retain the financial rewards for themselves. Many want to move quickly to the step in life, but do not have the tools or knowledge to do so. The skills are within you I have identified 8 key common traits of successful business people. These are: 1. The ability to have people follow them. This is commonly called leadership, but Gen has heard it termed “followship.” People must want to follow your ideas, want to be around you and want to work with you. 2. A “can do” mental attitude. i.e. there is no such thing as an excuse. 3. A steely determination to succeed. 4. A clear idea of where they are going. They know exactly what it is they want to achieve. 5. They are decisive and persistent. 6. They have an unwavering focus. 7. An understanding that relationships are everything. 8. They take action. Success in business has nothing to do with how you dress, how you speak, where you were educated and it doesn’t matter if you have qualifications of any sort or several university degrees. Successful business people have a particular mental attitude irrespective of their backgrounds. We are fortunate that these mental skills are learnable and our minds can be trained to be what our business requires us to be. Sports coaches use these techniques to obtain top performance from athletes. Business is like a game and we, too can train for top performance. seek their their next
