Becoming an entrepreneur takes self confidence and an ability to delegate.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 29, 2015
Have you always wondered if you have what it takes to become an entrepreneur? Atlanta businessman and entrepreneur Ty Rhame explains it all in his new SlideShare presentation, Qualities of All Entrepreneurs. Ty Rhame has been a successful entrepreneur for decades and has great tips to share, but encourages those who want to strike out on their own to do a self assessment first.
“Not everyone has what it takes to be an entrepreneur,” says Rhame. “It takes a lot of discipline, perseverance and plain old hard work. It’s not the get-rich-quick approach that many people seem to think. “
In the presentation, Ty Rhame lays out the important traits needed to be successful as an entrepreneur. While many would-be entrepreneurs share a desire to work for themselves, have always dreamed of owning a company and want to strike it rich, the person who will succeed has some experience in business, a proven track record and the skills to build a business from the round up. According to Ty Rhame, it’s important to put a good management team into the mix, take initiative and be able to weather the storms that will inevitably come your way.
“Quitters need not even consider becoming entrepreneurs,” says Rhame. “Becoming an entrepreneur takes self confidence and an ability to delegate. I’ve always found that the traits that serve me best are integrity, creative thinking and a willingness to constantly learn from my failures as well as successes.”
Ty Rhame is a successful Atlanta entrepreneur with 25 diverse businesses in his portfolio.
