Total your score for eleven characteristics. Add pluses and subtract minuses. Your score will fall between Ė22 to +22.
A high positive score demonstrates you have characteristics needed to succeed as an entrepreneur while a low or negative score demonstrates opposite. Your current job, experience, and motivation have much influence. Fairly passive or low scores can move to fairly positive or high scores with just loss of a job. Displaced persons are among most successful of entrepreneurs regardless of prior traits. They earn title, if for no other reason, than they have nowhere else to turn.
One thing we do know is that regardless of what your score is, without a passion to succeed at all cost, title of entrepreneur and notoriety that goes with it, will forever elude your grasp.
