Study finds the trait all entrepreneurs have in common
The Recruit Venture Group’s Managing Director Paul Mizen explains why the top line from a recently published study by the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University, grabbed his attention.
The report concludes that many people who ‘take the plunge’ to become entrepreneurs have a common trait. Hyperactivity.
The study goes on to say that high energy levels, creativity and willingness to take risks give hyperactive people a flair for entrepreneurship, which it deemed to be an essential ingredient for a successful new business.
Starting a business is defined by having a passion. You could give it old fashioned labels like ‘get up and go’ or ‘gumption’, or you could characterise it in more modern terms such as ‘total commitment’ but either way you’re going to need that certain spark of entrepreneurial flair to fire up a startup.
However, so many potential startups fail in the early days. Despite the passion they flounder because they lack the right backing, the appropriate support and the freedom to focus.
Give a high-energy person those tools to work with and they’ll soon build something successful and I know that to be true because I have seen over 50 recruiters do it.
