Posted by James Price | JPAbusiness on 18-Jul-2018 02:00:00

If you're thinking about buying or starting a business – moving from the employed workforce to self-employment – take a look at our free Business Owner's Checklist.

The checklist features 10 common attributes our team tends to find in people who successfully build and run businesses.

Among these attributes are:

  • persistence
  • ability to deal with uncertainty, including extreme highs and lows
  • ideas person, with an eye to commercialisation and reality
  • self-confidence, but not arrogance
  • someone who can trust others.

Seek complementary skills

We find that one of the most important personal attributes of successful business owners is self-awareness, so be honest with yourself when using the checklist to assess your abilities and personal attributes.BOC2

If you don’t have all the attributes listed when first embarking on self-employment, we recommend you find a way to get them.

You could seek professional business advice and/or partner with people who can complement your skills and attributes.
