5 Top Traits of Successful Digital Entrepreneurs

In a recent blog post the Digital Marketing Institute outlined the top five traits they believe are necessary to make it as an entrepreneur.

Do you have what it takes? See if you check off any or all of the qualities listed in the list below!

1. Clarity

Having ambition and vision are important drives when trying to break the mould to entrepreneur "status" but having clarity of that ambition and vision is even more vital. Obstacles will try and demount you. The road to success will be long and at times unwelcoming. You will need a clear eye of your ambition and vision to reach the summit of your journey.

Ask yourself continously:

  • What do you want to achieve?
  • What do you want to achieve by it?
  • How will you go about achieving it?

2. Communication

You need to be able to communicate - both verbally and in writing - decisively. What idea are you trying to sell to the market? If people don't understand your product why would they waste their time engaging with it? Communication is key. Communication is the gateway to success.

3. Motivation

Match your ambition with your work ethic. What separates the talented individual from the successful individual is hard work.

4. Persistence

Success doesn't happen overnight. You will fall. You will fail. You will wonder is it worth getting back up. Yes it is. Persistence always pays off, eventually. Achieving your goal, fulfilling your dream; the reward will be worth it.

5. Passion

The Digital Marketing Institute blog post lists passion as the most important trait on their list. Passion will beat money and ideas all day, everyday. This is because passion is belief in yourself, your goal, and your capabilities. You need passion because you need to be able to sell your ideas or make a success out of them. 

The passionate entrepreneur is always thinking about new ideas, reading resources, and looking for new opportunites.
