Several columns have been written by Tina Wells, on what it takes to establish a successful business. But more important than the business is the entrepreneur who establishes it. So what are those must-have qualities of successful entrepreneurs? Let's count them down.

8.Great connectors.

I love connecting people. It’s one of the best parts of my job. That’s something I share with many friends who are also entrepreneurs. Successful entrepreneurs connect others just because. It creates a great circle of giving, and that’s only an upside for you. Kindness is always returned.

7. See through the noise.

There will always be setbacks. Successful entrepreneurs recognize these issues for what they are—small setbacks—and don’t allow them to become larger problems. I like to call it the ability to see through the noise. It’s so easy to get caught up in the noise of situations, but you have to figure out how to move ahead.

6. Well-rounded.

Successful entrepreneurs have many varied interests. Twitter founder Jack Dorsey studied everything from horticulture to massage therapy. It’s important to be able to adapt in any situation, so don’t be afraid to live outside of your comfort zone.
