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

Do you want to start an entrepreneurial journey, but you’re doubtful about having the skill set to build a successful business?

In this week’s episode, our guest is Gino Wickman, an entrepreneur since the age of 21 who has had an obsession with learning what makes businesses and entrepreneurs thrive. At 25 he took over the family business, which was deeply in debt and in need of help. After turning the company around and running it for seven years, he and his partners successfully sold the company. Gino then set out to help entrepreneurs and leaders get what they want from their businesses. Based on his years of real-world experience, he created the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS), a practical method for helping companies achieve greatness. Gino is devoting time and energy toward helping entrepreneurs-in-the-making get a huge jump-start on taking their entrepreneurial leap, which is why he created Entrepreneurial Leap. The mission of Entrepreneurial Leap is to find all of the entrepreneurs-in-the-making, at any age, wherever they are—to help them realize their purpose and live the life they were born to live.

In our interview, Gino discloses how he identified in their family-owned business that systems were needed, which eventually became the EOS system. He also shares how he could identify the real core focus that will drive him to success. He went into detail about the six essential traits of every entrepreneur and what happens if you’re missing any of those traits. Most importantly, he provides us with practical tips on how to actually find a mentor and touches on why being patient, but still taking action is key for an entrepreneur. If you think you’re an entrepreneur in the making, this episode is definitely for you!
