Almost every life coach or small business owner today describes themselves as being “authentic”.
While it is not in my place to decide on who is authentic or not, I have been silently observing several successful solopreneurs (especially those that I admire their approach), and I’ve seen quite a trend in qualities that show up again and again.
These are people who I consider to be both Authentic in their disposition and Successful in their work.
From my research, there are 17 qualities that seem to appear in an authentic & successful solopreneur.
An authentic and successful solopreneur:
1). Is Consistent
2). Is Vulnerable
3). Is strong
4). Makes mistakes
5). Accepts when they are wrong
6). Takes action
7). Learns discipline
8). Says No
9). Asks for help, doesn’t try to do everything alone
10). Lets others support them
11). Stays focused
12). Is patient
13). Is open to change
14). Is happy to accept negative feedback
15). Is not afraid of losing control in order to get freedom
16). Does not make excuses
17). Does not wait for perfection
