Duquesne University Small Business Development Center has introduced the
Venture Into Entrepreneurship program that assists unemployed workers, who
are in transition, in starting their own business. The Venture Into
Entrepreneurship program uses consulting and training to assist
individuals who want to transition from unemployment to entrepreneurship.
This program will connect those who are unemployed, but are considering
entrepreneurship as their next career move, with resources that will allow
them to get their start.
Entrepreneur Characteristic: Creativity
Creativity is a necessary entrepreneur trait. Entrepreneurs don't limit their ingenuity by rules that others have placed on themselves. They find unique ways to work through, around, over, or under obstacles and accomplish their goals.
Entrepreneur Characteristic: Toughness
Toughness is an entrepreneur characteristic you've got to have. As an entrepreneur you will face let downs, challenges, and hurdles. However, successful entrepreneurs are tough enough to get back up when they get knocked down and keep working toward their goals.
Entrepreneur Characteristic: Persistence
Persistence is perhaps one of the strongest characteristics entrepreneurs possess. There are going to be plenty of people who don't understand an entrepreneur's passion for freedom and achievement. Those same people may strongly oppose what she is doing and try to stop her progress. Successful entrepreneurs persist through adversarial conditions even in the hardest times.
