3 Signs of a Savvy Entrepreneur

In my line of work, I meet lots of entrepreneurs and business owners. Some are very successful, and others are still getting there. I can always spot a savvy entrepreneur thanks to these three signs.

1) They are proud of what they do …and it shows- Savvy entrepreneurs never cover their mouth and mumble when someone asks “What do you do?” Instead, they smile real big and tell them! They always use their business name in their email signatures and jump at the chance of sharing their expertise. They realize that providing a service that is valuable to people is not enough-you have to market that service!

2) They are focused-Even serial entrepreneurs share this characteristic. Savvy entrepreneurs take one project at a time and carry it out to its full extent. They are focused on their business and are willing to give it their 100%. They don’t scatter their efforts. They give their full attention to whatever project is on hand.

3) They are students-The best entrepreneurs are also constant students. They love learning! They shun the know-it-all attitude and embrace learning as a way of life. I, myself, continue to take classes, hire coaches, and participate in seminars that I feel will be valuable to me and my clients. Savvy entrepreneurs invest in themselves and constantly hone their skills.
