Traits Of The MLM Entrepreneur

By: Lois R. Thompson

When starting your home business, keep in mind that no two people are alike. However
there are some shared personality traits that are common to those who have started
and operate a success business.

One of the commonalities among successful business owners is that they have an
entrepreneurial spirit. What are the traits of an entrepreneur spirit?

Lets see what some of these traits in the MLM Entrepreneur are:

* Self-starter
* Self-motivated
* Creative
* Self-disciplined
* Self-reliance

The self-starter:

Self-starters are the type of people who do not sits around thinking about
something, over and over again, and yet don't take any action to get it done. They decide on
what needs to be done, and they simple Do It! The self-started is a Self-Motivate

For example: You are in need of your own website, but income limits you from just
hiring a web design company to make that site. As a self-starter, you would go to work
gathering all the information pertinent to web design and development, develop and
design your site. In the end you would have a website that You have developed.

One vital trait of a self-starter it to know their strengths and weaknesses and be
able to accept them.


The self-motivated individual has a lot of motivation and drive. Because each person
is a unique individual, one person's motivations may be different from everyone

For example, your motivation for starting you home business could be simply to earn
$500 or $1,000 per month or $10,000 or $20,000 per month. Or it could be that you
want to home school your kids, and that requires earning an income working from home.
Your level of motivation to a large measure will be dependent up on your purpose and
level of commitment. How big is Your dream?


The creative individual has a lots of good ideas.

They are usually able to come up
with good ideas and problem solving solutions. Many of their ideas are often the
results of listening and observing other business.

They focus on finding solutions, rather than dwelling on the challenges.

For example, if you have a limited advertising budget, you would get to work finding
all the available free advertising avenues opposed to mulling over and over how
limited your budget is. This could result not only in exploding your advertising
program, but with your creativity you would now have the knowledge from research, which you
could pass on to your downline or package and sell. Thus, resolving the problem and
creating an additional income.


The self-disciplined individual is one who does not need someone standing over or by
them telling them what, how and when to do. They don't need anyone telling to get
something done. They are able to determine what needs to be done, then set aside time
to do it.

They do not easily become discouraged. They do not interpret mistakes as a sign of
failure, but instead accepts that everyone makes them and use them as learning tools
and move on.

Where a business may fail, and many do first time around, a self-disciplined
individual does not a accept that THEY are a failure.
They simply learn from the mistakes and use them as a launching pad for success.

The Self-reliant:

The self-reliant is the independent person. This person does not mind making the
necessary sacrifices where needed to learn what needs to be done, so that they can get
on with the task at hand rather than depending on someone else to do it for them.

When they don't know something, it's natural and comfortable for them to seek, ask
for and receiving advice. They recognize that no one can make it totally on their one has all knowledge. They normally have a strong support network of
associates, family and friend who are able to give objective advice where needed.

The self-reliant, not always, but usually are willing to take "calculated risk".
They use caution and carefully assess a situation first, before jumping in head first.

They are firm believers that their success is in their own hands. They believe they
have or are can learn and develop the skills needed, and that with hard work they
will be successful, opposed to believing in "fate". They focus on success instead of
failure. They see the positive outcome opposed to challenges. They don't see the
world as a place where they can get, but as a place where they can give...where they can
make a contribution.

This is not to say that lacking any one of these traits means
you won't be successful. These are all traits that CAN be
learned and developed. Only you can decide if this is worth the effort... I believe
it is!

As an entrepreneur in MLM you are adaptable. You'll find yourself wearing many
different hats such as: marketer, promoter, public relations, motivator, sponsor,
webmaster...and so forth. You are not afraid of chance and are opened and flexible to them.

Successful businesses are not built over night, but over time. As a MLM entrepreneur
you are willing to go the extra mile, put forth the time and effort needed to build
a successful business organization. You are willing to take on the challenges of
becoming a leader.

To sum this all upArticle Submission, the traits of entrepreneurship are Positive! We might say it's
the development to strong character traits.
