Successful property investors, business people and entrepreneurs share common traits.
They also come from varied backgrounds and have achieved their success in different ways.
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.

Which type of entrepreneur are you?
Breaking down these types of entrepreneurs further:
The Hustler is an enthusiastic go-getter who can sell just about anything. They are supremely confident and conscientious and won’t let anything stand in their way.
Always forward-thinking and adventurous, the innovator constantly seeks to challenge old ideas, and find new and unconventional ones.
The Machine simply gets things done. Equipped with an aptitude for solving problems and a high level of efficiency, they always deliver quality, quickly.
The Prodigy is blessed with an inborn business sense and instinct. Natural intellect, a stoic demeanor, and strong social skills help guide them to success.
A creative and tactical thinker, the Strategist is always calculating a game plan. Their habit of long-term thinking leads to success.
Visionaries combine new and innovative ideas with the drive and enthusiasm needed to rally the masses behind them.
