What is needed to bring success out of a good idea? Cydni from the Women Tech Council, along with Sunny and Kat joined Midday to share the most important skills and characteristics any entrepreneur needs and how to develop them. Their visit is part of Midday’s Tech Innovator series, where we talk about the tools, resources and skills entrepreneurs need to be successful.
Cydni explained there are lots of skills entrepreneurs need to learn, including technical skills like accounting, forecasting, etc. There are also tools they need, like project management programs and resources to help with automation. But aside from these, there are also innate characteristics that will help entrepreneurs succeed no matter what type of idea they want to pursue or business they want to launch. The first characteristic is passion, and the importance of having a personal connection and vision for what you want to do. This is followed by grit.
