Running a business is very different from any other kind of job, and thus, not everyone possesses the qualities to be an entrepreneur. Qualities that might seem easy to have but are difficult to retain. Yet, what are these traits? Don't you want to know if you have these or not? Well, entrepreneur and founder of two flourishing businesses, Sahil Suri, outlines those characteristics. 

According to this genius entrepreneur, besides all the other qualities that are listed below, leadership is the most important one. Stating other ones Sahil Suri mentioned these: 

Problem Solver: "An entrepreneur should understand what problems are being faced by society and how his business can help them. He should be a problem solver," says Sahil Suri. Moreover, he also said that successful entrepreneurs know how to quickly solve other problems as well that are causing obstacles to the growth of their business. 

Risk Taker: Addressing this Sahil Suri explained, "Your passion to chase your dreams and your craze towards starting your own business will bring you numerous risks. The market's volatile conditions will push you to twist your brain. And if you aren't ready for all this risk, you should go back to step one: preparing yourself."

Excellent Communication Skills: If you aren't an eloquent person, you will accomplish little to nothing. "Expressing oneself evidently and concisely can make the difference between others and an excelling businessman. So build great talking skills and know how to word your thoughts," Sahil Suri emphasized.

Learner: For an entrepreneur, this is a continuous process. "There are daily shifts in market trends and one should be aware and learn about all these trends unless he wants to throw in the towel. The entire journey of an entrepreneur is about learning, unlearning, and relearning," says Sahil Suri. 

Work-life Balance: While entrepreneurs are always believed to be busy scaling their businesses and making no time for themselves, Sahil Suri implies that a winning entrepreneur knows the primacy of maintaining a balance between work and personal life. "In order to avoid frequent business burnouts, it is necessary to spare time for yourself and bounce back with a fresh mind," Sahil Suri added.

The entrepreneur is the founder of an IT company and a luxury cafe called Marshmallow. Sahil is now planning to enter the Bollywood film industry as a producer and we wish him luck in the same.
