Six Traits of the Successful Small Business Owner from Inc. Magazine

I came across this article published by Inc. a while ago and thought it would be good to share here since many of our customers are small businesses but I think this list applies to anyone in any type of career.
  1. Ability to collaborate: delegate, build strong releationships, connect with customers.
  2. Be self-fulfilled: love what you do and your passion will help you be successful.
  3. Future-focused: think not only about today or this year, have the future planned out.
  4. Curious: read, ask questions, learn. When you ask a lot of questions you can uncover more truths.
  5. Tech-savvy: relying on new technology helps businesses succeed. From what I’ve heard from our customers, remote support technology is critical for folks in IT and Software support. In fact, I surveyed our customers and found that by using GoToAssist Express, customers see a productivity increase of 30% to 50%, leading to increased revenues of $50K to $100K a year. That is one strong ROI!

  1. Thanks for posting these points. The top trait should be creativity. I think creativity combined with these other qualities makes the winning combo.
