E is for Endurance

Entrepreneurs have to endure.  They have to stick it out, even when it seems like quitting time.  Even when everyone says throw in the towel.  The entrepreneur has to endure.

Enduring is part of what makes an entrepreneur successful.  Look at Donald Trump.  If he had not endured the real estate dips and tabloid rumors, he probably never would have made it to the level of The Apprentice.  I see individuals like Trump as examples of enduring the good with the bad, allowing one to keep going despite the noise of the crowd of onlookers.

Seek to endure as you grow your business.  You sustain your business by what you withstand and weather as a business leader.
