A great entrepreneur is what makes the difference between a business doomed to fail and a great one; but what qualities define a 'great entrepreneur'?

Creativity: To deliver creative solutions to common problems.  

Passion: To generate the drive required to work extra hours, go the extra mile and take the necessary risks.  

Tenacity: To face problems in entrepreneurship. Lots of them. Every day.

Flexibility: To adapt the original ideas and intentions as they likely won’t last long in a practical environment.

Focus: To combat the “shiny object syndrome,” chasing after whatever latest-and-greatest idea and never really settling on anything.  

These traits and skills aren’t innate; they can be trained and acquired.
