What Entrepreneurs Are Made Of

Yesterday I had the great pleasure of hearing AnnMarie Thomas speak at Google Making Science. In her book “Making Makers” she examines the qualities of a maker — going through this list, it made me realize that the same qualities are true for a good entrepreneur.

  • Makers/Entrepreneurs are curious.
  • Makers/Entrepreneurs are playful.
  • Makers/Entrepreneurs are willing to take on risk.
  • Makers/Entrepreneurs take on responsibility.
  • Makers/Entrepreneurs are persistent.
  • Makers/Entrepreneurs are resourceful.
  • Makers/Entrepreneurs share their knowledge, tools and support.
  • Makers/Entrepreneurs are optimistic.

Those are the very qualities I suggest you look for in yourself as well as everyone you hire.

And keep asking yourself: What are we going to make?
