1. Be a problem solver

To be an entrepreneur is to find an existing need in the market and fill it. In essence, entrepreneurs are the kind of people who can identify a problem and develop a solution to respond to that specific problem. Problem solving skills are highly valued in the workplace, and employers would rather higher candidates who can identify problems and create solutions for the same problems.

2. Learn what you do not know

Being an entrepreneur makes you responsible for every aspect of your business, including the day-to-day operations of your company. That puts you in a position where you need to learn the things that you don’t know to grow your business. To learn what you don’t know is to be resourceful. Being resourceful will help you strengthen the areas that will help you move forward in the workplace.

3. Take responsibility

To be an entrepreneur is to be responsible for every action that you partake. Every decision that you make is vital to the success of your business. Accountability and transparency pushes you as an entrepreneur to excel in your field, and when you implore this trait at the workplace it not only builds trust but also bring a sense of responsibility.

4. Decision making

5. Proactively plan ahead

Entrepreneurs are not stuck in in the present, even when things are going their way. Successful entrepreneurs have the tendency of thinking about what’s next. This helps them in identifying and foreseeing opportunities, while mitigating problems which have not risen yet.

    I like the tips however, in the visionary approach, people no longer talk about problem solving rather they talk about setting a vision and create action steps to attain a set vision. This is proactive in nature rather than reactive of problem solving.
