Getting a venture off the ground isn’t easy, so it’s no surprise there are a few comments those in the business of assisting start-ups would rather not hear from entrepreneurs.
Writing on his Startup Professional Musings blog, Startup Professionals founder and CEO Martin Zwilling runs through a few common comments he says quickly identify people as not being cut out for the rigours of entrepreneurial life. So, if you answer yes to any of these questions, you may want to give it a miss:
Zwilling provides explanations of the characteristics of entrepreneurs that would make would-be start-up founders want to answer ‘no’ to these questions. He also suggests employees can assess the effectiveness of their bosses in the same way.
“If you are an employee and you recognise your boss in the quotes, you probably are not a happy employee. If you recognise your CEO or business founder in the quotes, then your business is probably failing. That’s how important it is for the right people to be in the right category,” he writes.
