5 PERSONALITY TRAITS THAT CAN LEAD TO BUSINESS FAILURE!
When we start a business, we tend to focus on characteristics that will guarantee our business success and forget about deleting the characteristics that can stop us from being successful.
Here is a run down of personality traits to work on if you want to make your business a success:
If you cannot develop relationships and rapport with complete strangers very quickly, you won’t find it easy to make it in business because money comes from other people who will in turn be your customers.
So develop your social skills and learn how to make new friends. in one word SOCIALISE!
Being too much of a perfectionist can hinder your success . For example, you might be the type of perfectionist that will not be satisfied with someone else (e.g. your staff member) doing things for your customers.
Free yourself from your perfectionist tendencies so you can progress faster in your business.
I admit even i can procastinate but i worked on it over time.
You have to be well organised in business and be able to keep to deadlines. This is so important when making fruit displays so that you do not cram all your cutting fruits, carving and preparation.
You’ll never produce your best work this way and this will affect the reputation of your business. Learn to discipline yourself and manage your time more effectively.
4.Poor financial management skills.
This goes without saying, you are in business to make money so be careful with your money. Be on top of your business finances. Know how much money you are actually making from each order and also know your business costs. There are principles for managing money and you have to make active effort to learn these principles so you have a shot at making your business a success.
Lack of confidence is a big problem. You need to be confident enough to approach perfect strangers and more so to be confident of your prices.
By perfecting your skills, you will increase your confidence.
