Q.2- Distinguish between Entrepreneur and manager
highlighting the traits required to be an entrepreneur?

A.2-Difference between an Entrepreneur and a Manager:

Traits Required to be an Entrepreneur:

1. Full of determination
When you set out to become an entrepreneur it will require you to set very clear goals
along the way. Growing your business, increasing sales and hiring new employees
require several micro-goals within them to be executed successfully.

2. Not afraid to take risks

Some of the most successful entrepreneurs took major risks, and they paid off in a big
way. Shark Tanks Barbara Corcoran turned a $1,000 loan into a $5 billion-dollar real
estate business that she sold for $66 million back in 2001.

3. High level of confidence

Entrepreneurs that have a high level of confidence are able to get the job done even
under the most stressful conditions. They understand that big challenges breed big
rewards. This is the same mentality that allows successful entrepreneurs to spot an
opportunity when most just see a possible challenge. When most focus on the
challenge, a successful entrepreneur focuses on the finish line and the end reward.

4. Craves learning
You have to stay sharp, and that requires that you are constantly learning. Industries
constantly change and evolve -- only those that are also growing through constant
learning will stay ahead. You will always have competitors breathing down your neck
trying to surpass you. There will always be someone claiming to be the next greatest

5. Understands failure is part of the game

Richard Branson said it best: Few first ventures work out. It is how a beginning
entrepreneur deals with failure that sets that person apart. In fact, failure is one of the
secrets to success, since some of the best ideas arise from the ashes of a shuttered

6. Passionate about his or her business

Passion fuels the drive and determination required to be successful, whether you are
building a company from the ground up or buying an Internet business that already has
a proven track record.

7. Highly adaptable
If entrepreneurs had the ability to see what was hiding around each turn it would make
it much easier -- but unfortunately that is not the case. There can be surprises around
every corner, even with a well thought out plan and strategy.

8. Good understanding of money management

It doesnt matter if you are bootstrapping your business, using personal credit cards or
have millions of dollars from investors -- you must have excellent money management
skills. Poor financial decisions, such as overspending or allocating funds to less
important tasks can quickly ruin a business.

9. Expert at networking
A large collection of business cards and a huge contact list doesnt make you an expert
at networking. Building value-based relationships that are truly meaningful is what
networking is all about -- these are the relationships that lead to business opportunities
and long-term relationships that are mutually beneficial.

10. Ability to sell and promote

If you watch the TV show Shark Tank then you have certainly heard Mark Cuban tell
entrepreneurs on several occasions that knowing how to sell is an absolutely essential
part of being a successful business owner.
