Entrepreneurship Skills You'll Have to Earn

By: Abby Lee

I don't think entrepreneurs are born, they're made. Entrepreneurship skills needed to succeed are not just natural, innate personalities but rather things that the person have to work on in order to achieve and have. Don't believe what is usually being said about you having a particular set of skills or having this and that to be an entrepreneur. What's important at the initial phase of any business is that you have the drive and ambition to succeed. All the other entrepreneurship skills will follow.

Here are some of the important entrepreneurship skills that you will sort of learn on-the-job:

Dealing with People
People say that before you enter into business, you must already be a people person and even a sales person. Not necessarily correct. Dealing with people is something that you'll definitely learn once you're already thrust into the role of entrepreneur. What choice do you have other than learn how to manage your team or how to attract and engage clients? You will already be in the forefront of your business and as such, you will basically be forced to learn this entrepreneurship skill. This skill takes a lot of time and practice and you will mess up every now and then. The only important thing to remember about this though is that you just have to be fair and honest in your dealings with people, and your own people management style will come out eventually.

Risk-taking and confidence
I believe that the two go hand-in-hand, with confidence being primary. As an entrepreneur, you have to be able to adapt to change, find opportunities and take risks if you want your business to still thrive, grow or flourish. Of course, you won't be able to achieve this without confidence that is why it is primary. I don't think anyone really gets into business confident and all that. You earn confidence as you slowly get used to the ropes and after you have failed in certain ways enough to toughen you up.

Great Communication Skills
I don't think that a person is born with great communication skills. To be a good communicator, you have to practice and invest your time learning about it. This is why I think that great communication skills could be learned and that in fact, you will learn it while you are working whether as an entrepreneur, an employee or a parent. Having great communication skills is more of a trial and error kind of thing. As long as you take note of communication styles that worked and didn't work, you should be on your way to getting your message across perfectly well.
