The Entrepreneurial Wow Factor - Do You Have It

Entrepreneurs are not all created equal. However, they all have something in common, despite their differences. It’s not a large inheritance or a Wharton MBA. A “wow” factor is essential to be successful in the unpredictable business world. This “wow” factor can come in many forms. These are just a few examples:

The Advisor

Entrepreneurs who have the “advisor factor” help people. They believe that the customer needs them, and it is their job at all costs to help. This may sound like you. Sometimes work can take over your personal life.
