What makes business owners successful? According to research, education doesn’t show up in the top ﬁve. (Entrepreneurial Intuition, an Empirical Approach, La Pira, April 2010), but these do:
- Seeing the big picture – being a visionary is most important. If you can’t see it, you won’t shoot for it.
- Speed of Execution – taking action while others are researching.
- Never giving up; being the bull dog; ﬁnding a way to make it work.
- Being a life-long learner.
Learning is massively different than being educated. Education ﬁlls our heads with information, while learning transforms our lives and the world around us with grounded and applied intelligence.
