What type of entrepreneur are you?

Successful property investors, business people and entrepreneurs share common traits.

They also come from varied backgrounds and have achieved their success in different ways.27497990_l

But according to The Founder Institute, who tested more than 30,000 entrepreneurs to discover what qualities and priorities they had in common, it turns out that most successful people can be grouped into six different personality profiles with certain traits in common.

These categories are: Hustler, Innovator, Prodigy, Visionary, Machine and Strategist.

While these six types of entrepreneurs are obviously very different in many ways, the one commonality is the ability to find success through a leadership style that is a unique fit for both the entrepreneur and their business.

That’s why Oprah Winfrey’s empire could not be built by Steve Jobs, and Bill Gates’ Microsoft could not be built by Zig Ziglar.
