Entrepreneurs-Blinded by Passion


Carol GlynnI have an absolute blast mentoring individuals who want to start their own business. But I've noted a trait in some of them that becomes a hindrance to their own success. I call it "Entrepreneur Blindness." Interestingly enough, this "blindness" is caused by a personality trait which is absolutely mandatory to become a successful entrepreneur: PASSION. These entrepreneurs become so blurry eyed by their own personal enthusiasm for their product or service offering that they choose to ignore some of the basics of good business practice.
