  1. I think not necessarily all these or some of these are must to have beforehand to be a successful entrepreneur cause to learn or excel anything the most effective rule is ‘LEARN BY DOING’
    or ‘LEARN AS YOU GO’ ‘TRIAL & ERROR’ this technique will serve you all other needed qualities and skills which are need foremost are

    The ‘BURNING DESIRE’ that can emit all other qualities like passion, patience, needed communication skill, oratory,inspiring story telling and such.

    Of course i m not denying the added benefit of such qualities/skills having beforehand but if we people start to think such way it can discourage us to be an entrepreneur if we lack any or some of this qualities moreover actually notion about the necessary quality/skills of entrepreneur varies person to person there is no hard and fast like things.
