Entrepreneurship isn’t for the faint at heart. Successful Entrepreneurs got productive habits that allow them to create more success in a few years than most people do in their entire lifetime. Find advice from INJAZ Egypt and the Start Up Egypt finalists
1- Dreaming Big
Entrepreneurs are driven by a greater purpose, a unique calling, and there’s nothing their imaginations can’t dream up. Motivated by achievement more than money, their goal is to innovate and excel.
2- Getting Out of their Comfort Zone
Risk-takers, daredevils, adventurers – entrepreneurs are all about taking chances and braving new territory. They are free spirits who trust their instincts and intuition.
We all think we want to work for someone, but we need to think that we can work for ourselves. – RecycloBekia, Start Up Egypt finalist
3- Never Taking No for an Answer
Where there’s a will there’s a way. Impossible is not a word they can tolerate.
4- Going the Extra Mile
They get the job done. From dealing with customers to tending to their teams, entrepreneurs find solutions.
Everyday we are learning something new. And everything we are learning will make the business stronger, and make starting another new business easier. Never stop learning. – SOLETRIK, Start Up Egypt finalist
5- Being Flexible
Extremely adaptable, true entrepreneurs can shift gears easily, and if something doesn’t work one way they try it another way, again and again until it works. They welcome constructive criticism and take it seriously so they continuously improve themselves.
Expect that not everything will go according to your plan and that way you will be prepared for the unexpected. That is great planning. – EDUTKS, Start Up Egypt finalist
6- Madly Loving What they Do
Wild passion drives them and fuels their business. If it isn’t exciting, they can do without it, and the 9am to 5pm routine just isn’t for them. They are continuously inspired and they treat their business like their baby.
Start up what you can do best – start your business in an area that you are passionate about and have expertise in … If you have a creative idea that doesn’t create value, it will not create a business. – LEANUTION, Start Up Egypt finalist
7- Checking Their Ego At The Door
This last habit is critical to growing a successful business. Entrepreneurs who keep their egos in check lead the most highly-motivated teams and are able to create great networks to further their business.
