I can describe myself as a hardworking, active, and positive person, which I believe are all characteristics that one needs as an entrepreneur. I always try to find a solution to a challenging problem. There are always going to be problems running a business, therefore I always try to keep up to date with my responsibilities. Failures are also part of handling a business. So, it's important to always have faith and believe in yourself.

Entrepreneurship is appealing to me because...

It's a career that shows you how to be responsible with business. Entrepreneurship can benefit me because I will learn a lot of new skills and each experience will teach me to do better than the last. I feel that I will always gain something at the end of each activity, even if I lose money, I've learned a new lesson and that will help me make better decision next time.

I have many of the characteristics that are essential to entrepreneurs.

I am honest, motivated, and reasonable. These skills that I have would make me a good entrepreneur because it will benefit my business. I am honest because I want to know that my business is successful because I was honest, not a cheating scammer. I am motivated because I always try my hardest to get something done, no matter how difficult the challenges are. Furthermore, I am reasonable because I like to be fair and I try to please everyone when they are going to gain something beneficial. It's also important to be passionate about your business because that's what will inspire you to do great things with your ideas. Furthermore, you will need to be as social as possible in order to gain more success. Another skill that it takes to be a good entrepreneur is determination. With this skill you will be able to achieve your goals as long as you don't give up. Lastly, it's important to know how to run a business, so that you won't be fooled by people who want to gain something from your business.
