What makes someone a successful business owner?

It certainly helps to have strong technology skills or expertise in a key area,
but these are not defining characteristics of entrepreneurship.
Instead, the key qualities are traits such as creativity, the
ability to keep going in the face of hardship, and the social skills needed to
build great teams.

If you want to start a business, it's essential to learn the specific skills that
underpin these qualities. It's also important to develop entrepreneurial skills
if you are in a job role where you are expected to develop a business, or
"take things forward" more generally.

You can learn the essential skills you need to be an
exceptional leader or manager, a valued team member, and an outstanding
contributor in the workplace.
