Publisher's Summary

Researchers and psychologists have spent decades working to dissect and analyze the personality characteristics intrinsic to successful entrepreneurs. While a number of theories have been advanced about what it takes to achieve entrepreneurial success, none have tapped directly into the collective wisdom of the entrepreneurs themselves. In The Five Characteristics of a Successful Entrepreneur, serial entrepreneurs Ryan Westwood and Travis Johnson recount their two-year mission to survey 100,000 highly successful US business CEOs and founders whose organizations have grossed at least $1 million in annual revenue.

Armed with survey results from more than 2,600 respondents from across the nation, Mr. Westwood and Mr. Johnson take an in-depth look at the five personality traits most commonly identified as essential to entrepreneurial success. Filled with real-life examples, insightful analysis, and action plans at the end of each chapter, The Five Characteristics of a Successful Entrepreneur is an unprecedented journey into the rich, nuanced fabric that has made American entrepreneurs the most savvy and innovative on Earth. It is a must-hear for any aspiring entrepreneur seeking to follow a clear path to success and for any accomplished entrepreneur seeking to impart the most salient, relevant advice to the next generation.

    I love to read. Audible makes my Bay Area Commute doable. Fantasy or non-fiction (usually history or business, etc).
