The most valuable skills and qualities for entrepreneurs are not what you’d expect them to be.
They don’t come up on page one in a Google search.
They are not what the latest tik tok account would lead you to believe.
There is a very specific list of 11 skills for entrepreneurs that will keep your overheads low and your profits high.
10 of the most valuable business skills for business owners are shown in this image…
And if you click it, you can watch a 2-minute video explaining each one.
But more importantly than any of those, there’s…
An Elusive and Intangible Skill for Entrepreneurs
That is the most valuable of all.
But unfortunately, most entrepreneurs have a hard time getting their heads around it.
Which is really ironic because…
The Most Valuable Quality for an Entrepreneur is their Ability to Think
And of course, just about anyone can think.
Just like anyone can set a business up.
But a successful business requires entrepreneurial thinking in a very specific way.
Top entrepreneurs know that their thinking is what earns them the big bucks.
The skills listed here will get you to 6 and 7 figures.
But to get to 8 figures requires immense amounts of business mindset training.
And only with the right training does thinking become a skill.
We typically like to think of an entrepreneurial mindset as an inherent quality or trait.
You’ve either got it or you ain’t. But that’s not true.
It’s a learned skill.
And big business owners possess it.

You envisaged being a well respected, forward-thinking entrepreneur earning millions of pounds per annum- Instead of a local small business owner earning £70,000 per year for example?
Well you may be surprised to learn that there’s a big difference between an entrepreneur and a business owner and it’s not about the money they make.
It’s the difference is their thinking.
