 Qualities Of An Entrepreneur –  Innovative Thinking


The Young Entrepreneurs Study, funded by the John Templeton Foundation, studied 5,000 college-age people over three years to determine what qualities were typically present in budding entrepreneurs. They discovered four key traits, including Innovative Thinking, Self-Control, Initiative, and Entrepreneurial Mentors


Let’s begin with Innovative Thinking. According to this study, 76% of aspiring entrepreneurs displayed high levels of innovative thinking as compared to only 47% of non-entrepreneurial types. 


These young entrepreneurs were usually looking for creative ways to improve everyday tasks. 


Hebrews 8:13 teaches, “By calling this covenant 'new,' he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.”


Even God improved the Old Covenant with Jesus and the New Covenant. If God has wired you with an innovative mind, maybe He’s destined you to become an entrepreneur.
