What does it take to be a great entrepreneur?

It takes a lot of hard work, tenacity, and skill. You may disagree, but I am here to tell you that skill is one of the most important traits to possess to become a great entrepreneur. Skill is the ability to use one's knowledge effectively and readily in execution or performance and/or learned power of doing a thing competently.

To be a great entrepreneur, you must master the Art of Entrepreneurship.

It may be simple, but it's not that easy. It is very easy to confuse doing a craft well with being a great entrepreneur. You can have great technical skills as a barber, hairdresser, day care provider or architect and still NOT be a successful entrepreneur.

Being a great technician affords you the opportunity to be a great employee. Being a great entrepreneur affords you the opportunity to create the vision and life you have always desired.
