Entrepreneurs are a rare breed of individuals not intimidated by the prospects of self-employment, and business development.  Personal traits like courage and persistence are key to success. But there are other features necessary to build, run and develop a successful startup.  Even if there’s never a 100% guarantee, here are 5 tips to increase your chances of success in entrepreneurship.

1. Do business with a Purpose

Entrepreneurs do not always launch cutting edge businesses that rely on the latest and greatest innovations.  In a lot of cases, it’s less about developing a new product than just finding an innovative way to deliver it. In general, by filling a particular need, several entrepreneurs succeed where others have not.

2. Commit to Excellence

Viral success stories don’t happen often. Indeed, most entrepreneurs struggle with their business.  Therefore, commitment and perseverance are essential, as well as passion and a desire to be the best possible beyond the cash rewards.

3. Adapt

Successful entrepreneurs adapt to new market conditions, so they anticipate changes that can benefit or endanger their business. While persistence and commitment help entrepreneurs remain consistent, flexibility allows them to stay relevant for the long haul, continually presenting new value to the marketplace.

4. Make Connections

More than ever before, image and branding are central to entrepreneurial success.  In addition to stimulating respect and credibility among colleagues and associates, successful entrepreneurs know the importance of connecting with potential customers and clients through effective communication and social media.

5. Lean on a Team

Even the most adept business people rely on others for help.  Successful entrepreneurs understand how collaboration can make them move forward and when to delegate tasks to more experienced people.

For most, to become a successful entrepreneur doesn’t happen overnight. Instead, hard work and passion reinforce the long-term commitment entrepreneurs make.
