    Topic| Alphabetical Entrepreneur

    Products are crucial, business plans are imperative, and marketing is non-negotiable. But the real difference between success and failure in startups is the character of the entrepreneur. Some people are wired to win in the the entrepreneurial marketplace, and for some no amount of capital or planning will help them overcome themselves. Greg Smith examines the entrepreneurial personality with a preview from his new book, The Alphabetical Entrepreneur. Hear him discuss some of the twenty-six traits that separate successful entrepreneurs from those that don't last long past the start up phase.
