I found an interesting article online regarding Entrepreneurship, and would like to share it with everybody.

50 Signs You Might Be an Entrepreneur

Entrepreneurs are a unique group of people. Not only do they think differently; they act differently. They draw on personality traits, habits and mind-sets to come up with ideas that straddle the line between insanity and genius. But just because you’re an original thinker and came up with an idea to replace gasoline in cars doesn’t mean you’re cut out to be an entrepreneur.

If you ever wondered if you were an entrepreneur, check out the following list. You may not have all these traits or skills, yet if you have some, this is a pretty good indicator that you have what it takes.

1. You come from a family of individuals who just couldn't work for someone else. Your parents worked for themselves. Though this isn't true for every entrepreneur (myself included), many have a family history with one or both parents having been self-employed.

2. You hate the status quo. You’re a person who is always questioning why people do the things they do. You strive to make things better and are willing to act on it.

3. You’re self-confident. Have you ever met an entrepreneur who was pessimistic or self-loathing? After all, if you don’t have confidence, how can others believe in you? Most entrepreneurs are very optimistic about everything around them.

4. You’re passionate. There will be times when you spend an excessive amount of time and do not make a dollar. It’s your passion that will keep you going.

5. You don’t take no for an answer. An entrepreneur never gives up -- ever.

6. You can create unlikely partnerships from out of nowhere because of your ability to connect the dots. People tend to gravitate toward you because you are likable. Many times, this is because of your passion.

7. You spend more time with your co-founder than your spouse or significant other.

8. You dropped out of college like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg.

9. The daily commute to your office is from the bedroom to the living room.

10. You were always a lousy employee and probably have been fired a lot. Don't worry; you're not alone. I personally have been fired several times in my life. Don't take it as a sign that you're a bad person. Sometimes it's in your DNA.

Good share :) I might disagree with couple of them but wasn't a time waste at all. thanks once again :)

Thank you so much for your valuable feedback. Hope it's useful, I relate this article to myself & all the aspiring entrepreneurs out there.

Thanks, zyra for sharing such an interesting article regarding entrepreneurs. This might be helpful for those people who have such types of characteristics in themselves to become an entrepreneur but they don't know at all. Entrepreneurs should also have features like team building and better understanding of business.

I totally agree with you, these qualities add up with experience as well. Thank you so much for your valuable feedback. Hope it's useful, I relate this article to myself & all the aspiring entrepreneurs out there.

Here are the signs I see most often among employees working unhappily for big companies. When I see them I encourage the individual to start their own enterprise.

You develop the ability to cross organizational lines and make disparate groups or functional organizations work together with only your power of persuasion and your contract going for you.

You evolve the art of directing resources without having them report to you while keeping home departments and functional bosses happy at the same time.

You manage to convince the executives in your company that your project (s) is the most important in the firm.

You live with the prospect that if the project is late, fails or otherwise disappoints the powers that be, replacing you will be the designated corrective action.

You grow to crave the satisfaction that comes from succeeding at the above challenges and you would not have any other job because no other pursuit makes your day go as fast, grows you skills as sharp and totally occupies your intellect.
