I come from a family of entrepreneurs. I am an entrepreneur myself and I have worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs that have been clients of my call center.
The popular press puts forth a million-and-one ideas about what makes an entrepreneur successful. It’s not that these articles don’t have any merit; they just tend to be very heavy on the “conceptual” and rather light on anything “concrete”. They throw around terms like – vision, innovation, strategic thinking, etc.
The success or failure of many of the entrepreneurs I have worked with has often come down to these eight very practical concepts.
