5 Must-Have Traits of Intrapreneurs

5 Must-Have Traits of Intrapreneurs

I realized I’m not into entrepreneurialism as much.

Thus, there’s a group of people like me who are intrapreneurs.

Definition via investopia:
An intrapreneur is an inside entrepreneur, or an entrepreneur within a large firm, who uses entrepreneurial skills without incurring the risks associated with those activities. Intrapreneurs are usually employees within a company who are assigned to work on a special idea or project, and they are instructed to develop the project like an entrepreneur would. Intrapreneurs usually have the resources and capabilities of the firm at their disposal.

Are you wondering if you are an intrapreneur? Below are five skills/traits that help identify intrapreneurs.

70+ Quotes from How to Be Here by Rob Bell - Part Two

Have you ever heard someone on a stage or in the office or the classroom doing the work, but he’s simultaneously searching for someone to tell him how good, accomplished, skillful, or excellent he is? It’s as if he’s searching for applause in order to keep going you can sometimes see it in their eyes, this deeply unfulfilled sense that they are incomplete, that they need the strokes and affirmation of others to be content…

If you are looking for a particular response to bring you joy, that response may never come.

70+ Quotes from How to Be Here by Rob Bell - Part One

Far too often, we don’t start because we can’t get our minds around the entire thing. We don’t take the first step because we can’t figure out the seventeenth step.

But you don’t have to know the seventeenth step. You only have to know the first step. Because the first number is always 1.

Start with 1.
