Along with a new year comes the new opportunity to start an entrepreneurial endeavor! If you’ve decided that 2015 is the year you will achieve the goal of business ownership, you need to ask yourself this tough question, “Do I have what it takes to lead?” Whether you will be a company of leadershipone or if you will work with employees or contractors, you need to have the answer to this question firmly in your thoughts.

Here are my thoughts on leadership qualities:

  1. Can you effectively share your professional value and your expertise with others?
  2. Can you look at a problem that others are having and see where your solution and expertise will fit in to make a difference?
  3. Do you have the personality that allows for follow through on a great idea? Many a great idea has fallen by the wayside because its creator didn’t have follow through.

Will 2015 be the year that you join other entrepreneurs in their journey as business owners? I’d love to hear about what you’ve got planned!
