1. Focus
There are so many distracting things or forces when you trying to build a business so this skill is essential and not easy to master.

Successful entrepreneurs know that they do not know everything and the market is constantly changing. They stay up to date on new system, technology and industry trends.

The ups and downs are part of business and it never goes exactly the way you have planned. Entrepreneurs need to be flexible and that enables them to keep going when the going gets tough.

6. Sell
Every entrepreneur is a sales person whether they want to be or not. They are either selling their ideas, products or services to customers, investors or employees.

7. Decision-making
Entrepreneurs need to make right decisions and that comes to listening, reasoning and knowing when to trust your gut.

8. Prioritization and tradeoffs.

9. Initiative
Entrepreneurs need to be initiative to work on challenging tasks and ability to be a kick-starter.
