7 Traits of Successful Entrepreneurs [Printable]

From morning to night, I find myself caught in an endless loop of pep talk. From “getting out of bed” to “getting through petit allegro,” my mind recites a never-ending series of “Come on… You can do it…. Let’s go…. Come on…..” phrases. Often times, I am so burned out that by the end of the day I find my heart is filled with a deep resentment for things I know I enjoy.

While browsing through a not-so-old copy of Entrepreneur magazine, an article titled “The 7 Traits of Successful Entrepreneurs” caught my eye. These traits, ranging from tenacity to rule-breaking, epitomized the true impetus of what some might call my “labyrinth” of a life. Rather than simply posting these traits as a list (God knows I have enough post-its already), I found a fun website called “Tagxedo.” Tagxedo lets you input any word or phrase and shape them in a variety of colors, themes, shapes, sizes, and designs. After playing around with my design, I settled on a rose, a paradoxical representation of true beauty.

My rose is happily displayed in a clean, white IKEA frame. Love looking up as I’m working on the blog! Take note, this is the first of many recent DIY projects I have to share. After all, the new place has been furnished for over a month now! :)
