1. Always Motivated

Everyone knows that you need motivation and drive to be successful in life. However, it is important to remember that when you’re running a small business you need to be able to not only motivate yourself, but motivate your employees as well.

2. Goal Oriented

Successful business owners are goal oriented, they know what they want to achieve and how long it will take them to get there. Additionally, having clear goals for both yourself and your employees will help keep everyone motivated.

3. Time Management

When you own a small business, time equals money. If you want your business to be a success you will need to understand time management, and be able to plan how to best utilize your own time and the time your employees are on the clock.

4. Money Management

In addition to managing time, as a small business owner you also need to be able to properly manage your money. Although money should not be the only reason you open a business, you do need to be able to judge what is profitable and what is not. Fortunately, there are tons of accounting programs that can make money management a lot easier.
