I've long been fascinated by the common traits of successful entrepreneurs. What makes them "go for it" when so many others hold back? Looking at typical attributes among this group can give us a sense of what keeps them successful and resilient. The characteristics below by no means exclude other traits, but tell you what many top entrepreneurs have in common:
Impatient. Well educated. Entitled. Globally minded. These are just a few of the traits that are commonly assigned to Generation Y. Born between the late '70s and late '90s, this generation―72 million strong―is entering the workforce in droves, and shaking things up along the way. While they're credited as being "technologically savvy with a social conscience," no other generation takes more heat for their work habits, due in part to "helicopter parents" and perceptions of continuous "career ADD."
When I wasn’t looking, there must have been a meeting of the world’s officials rendering the verdict that the glass ceiling has officially been shattered. Men and women are now equal.
Who was involved in this decision and how was such a consensus reached?
