What does it take to be a successful entrepreneur? What skills do you need, and what personality traits should you have?
Being an entrepreneur is not for the faint of heart. It takes guts, resilience and a lot of other qualities that are hard to come by in one person.
In this interview, Todd talked about his journey from being an employee to a serial entrepreneur. He talked about the skills you need, the challenges you may face, as well as some hints on how to find the right people for your business.
Todd Randall, the eight-time CEO and business coach from rural Florida, found that running a business can lead you to an early grave if you let it. He set out to build a business enterprise that worships freedom more than money, and somehow ended up with both. This is the story of how a man set a crazy goal for himself, to learn to play polo and travel the world indulging that passion, and then worked persistently until he achieved it. His businesses have included spas, gyms, operations consulting, business brokerage, construction and wholesale companies. His latest and proudest venture is a thriving business coaching practice where he enthusiastically shares his experience with budding entrepreneurs.
