PERSONALITY TRAITS OF INSPIRATIONAL ENTREPRENEURS 1 In the field of entrepreneurship, it is crucial to have an individual to look up to understand the things needed to start a business. According to Fairlie, & Holleran (2012), in knowing people that have done it, a person has a high chance of getting the first-hand experience needed in successful entrepreneurship. One of the individuals that inspire me in entrepreneurship is my cousin. He has his small business that keeps growing exponentially year after year and has the likelihood of becoming an extremely successful entrepreneur in the future. The growth of his business inspires me a lot to know about entrepreneurship and the path I can follow to become successful. My cousin embodies the personality traits of entrepreneurs and has most of the characteristics associated with entrepreneurship. The personality traits play a huge role about in the success of his business ventures enabling him to become successful and a great inspiration. One of the traits that he has is passion. The passion that an individual has about a business plays a huge role in the success of the venture. My cousin does not view business as being about only the money but he has the passion for the job. He feels it is his duty to find solutions to problems faced by other people. He believes in being of service to other people and has the duty of helping them to achieve their dreams. His mission is to help as many people as possible and in doing so he continues to get rewards for the good job and passion that he has about the job and in helping people. The passion he has is a great motivator and is an inspiration as it is the reason for not quitting even when things get bad. The other trait is self-confidence. My cousin has a lot of self-confidence in himself and his business. His confidence enables him to believe in himself and the work he does even though other people might not believe in him. Self-Confidence in entrepreneurship is crucial as there many situations and people that might discourage a person in the things they do. A person needs to have confidence in the things they do to ensure they succeed as they have to sell their ideas to other people for them to believe in their efforts and dreams ( Brandstätter, 2011).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
