The Six Essential Traits of a Successful Entrepreneur—with Gino Wickman

You want to start your own business. But there’s a lot on the line. You have to ask yourself difficult questions.  Do I have what it takes? Is it worth it? And how do I do it?

This interview has been months in the planning, and I’m so excited I can finally share it with you all. I had the honor of interviewing Gino Wickman, creator of the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) and the Founder of EOS Worldwide. He is a bestselling author of several books, including Traction and most recently, Entrepreneurial Leap: Do You Have What It Takes To Become An Entrepreneur? Gino founded Entrepreneurial Leap with the mission to give people the tools to decide whether entrepreneurship is the right path for them and how to go after their dreams.

In our interview, Gino and I discussed his journey in developing the EOS system and what he has learned is the most important mind shift a leader must make to make their organization successful. We discussed entrepreneurship—the six essential traits of every entrepreneur, how to identify whether entrepreneurship is in your DNA, and the different ways that one can pursue the entrepreneurial path.

If you’re currently an entrepreneur, thinking about becoming an entrepreneur, or wondering if entrepreneurship is right for you, I encourage you to give this one a listen!
