EP.135: Characteristics of (Most) Successful Entrepreneurs

Business, Podcast

If you’re thinking about starting your nutrition business this year, you may be wondering if you’ve got what it takes to be an entrepreneur. That’s because there are certain characteristics that most successful entrepreneurs have and you’ll want to develop these characteristics, as well.


Entrepreneurship, by definition, is the activity of setting up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit. In other words, you set out on a venture to sell a product or service for which customers are willing to pay for that exceeds your investments and operating costs.


That in itself can be daunting to some. And while there’s no single personality profile that can describe every successful entrepreneur; there are certain characteristics that are important when it comes to starting and leading in your nutrition business.


On this week’s episode of the Make More Money as a Dietitian Podcast, Christine talks about what characteristics and skills you’ll want to have and develop to succeed as an RD entrepreneur.



  • Why you should assess whether or not entrepreneurship is for you BEFORE diving in.
  • The 10 characteristics shared by most successful entrepreneurs.
  • The fact that there’s no right or wrong way to be an entrepreneur.
