A Business is an individual entity formed to earn profits. Making profits is not the sole objective. It has to be done organizationally through the provision of goods and services legally. Business, based on how big it is, can be called an enterprise, company or a firm.  Some companies are formed with a non-profit motive also.

Business classification

A business can be classified on the basis of their area of function such as agriculture, finance, real estate, manufacturing, trading, and entertainment industry. Out of these, financial business is a very challenging one as money is involved directly.

Some companies which deal with financial services provide financial assistance to its customers with a percentage of interest in return. Banks, credit card or mortgage broker, insurance companies, firms dealing with brokerage, asset management companies, and investment companies can be clubbed into financial businesses.

Financial assistance providing by companies

Many companies are dealing in providing financial assistance throughout the world. Liberty Lending is one of them, but what makes it unique is its attempt to make the customer happy by simplifying the loan procedure. The team makes you feel special. Liberty Lending promises of not having hidden charges, prepayment penalties and tries to fulfill their obligations.

Who is an entrepreneur?

  • An entrepreneur can be defined as a person who takes the initiative of organizing a business venture or project.
  • He/she brings all the benefits earned by the company as the primary decision regarding what, how and when related aspects of goods and services.
  • The entrepreneur can also be described as a person who is always measuring the achievement in terms of profit- the credit card or mortgage firms, the more the success.
  • Is profit earning the only unit for measuring the ideal qualities of an entrepreneur?

Qualities of a entrepreneur

According to my opinion, some qualities cannot be presented on the financial statements of the company. They are the inner qualities which can only be felt.

The following are some of the points which become ideal qualities of an entrepreneur:

  1. A good human being
    An individual should be a good person before, and only then he can be a perfect entrepreneur. He/she should have a clear understanding that the success of a business is not one person show because it involves the coordination of various talented professionals who work for a good leader.
    The team of professionals has to work together in achieving the organizational goals by helping each other and implementing their roles, and for that, the entrepreneur should be their role model.
  2. Have challenging spirit
    Life without spice is always boring though too much spice also disturbs the life. Why I said, this is because a business is no more different than life and the challenges faced are the spice.
    An entrepreneur should be in a position to accept any challenges and face them boldly.  If he/she gets confused, then what about the team members?
  3. Has to enjoy working
    Working all the time also is boring, and the person gets irritated at times which disturbs his relationship in the work atmosphere as well as home atmosphere.
    A unique solution should be found out to have a balance between the professional and personal life. The person while working in the interest of the company has to concentrate on his family members also.
    One has to enjoy doing work, and this is possible when you are supported by a caring and loving family.  At times importance has to be given to work, and family members have to be neglected. The situation is temporary. The family members can be overlooked to do something big, but they should not be avoided forever.
  4. Should be sympathetic
    The entrepreneur as a leader has to take many important decisions. Often, it is seen that credit for success is always given to the entrepreneur. What about the people who supported him to achieve the success? After getting the success, he/should not forget or degrade the employees. I do not say, just donate everything and leave the life of a common man. It is against the ethics of business. No matter how high the entrepreneur grows, he has to interact with his employees at some point or other.
    While reacting to the staff, the entrepreneur should assume himself in their position and take a proper decision in such a way that the organizational goals are met, and the employees are kept happy.  Doing this is a big task, but nothing wrong in giving it a try. Too many harsh decisions will damage employer-employee relationships.
  5. Should solve the issue of employee
    The entrepreneur should understand the situation and analyze before taking any action against any employee. In an organization, it is quite common to have employee issues.  There is no company without any employee issues.  The entrepreneur should be in a position to solve the employee issues at an earlier stage and neglecting it for too long may disturb other employees also, and the productivity is decreased.
  6. Should be communicative
    The entrepreneur should be a good communicator. As a representative of a company, when he is communicating with the outsiders of the business such as shareholders, and investors should be cautious because anything said wrong would damage the image of the company. If anything happens to the company, it is not just the entrepreneur who will get affected; the employees will suffer too.
  7. Should not be overconfident
    Having confidence is a good quality of the entrepreneur, but over-confidence spoils the game. The company to meet the competition of the market has to be innovative and has to prove that it is the best. However, proving the best does not mean the entrepreneur is allowed to go to any extent. Achieve or show whatever you want but within limits allowed by business ethics.

Hope, with the above tips you can understand the qualities that are required to become a successful entrepreneur.
