Countless entrepreneurs got their break from an early age. Think Mark Zuckerberg that founded Facebook when he was 20 or Sergey Brin and Larry Page that founded Google when they were both 25.
There are countless others in the entrepreneurship world that have also experienced tremendous success from an early age. Usually, such vanguards have a great deal of shared characteristics that pave their way to wealth. 1. Eye for opportunityBeing able to foretell a future demand or necessity for something that hasn't quite broken out of the soil yet is a commonly shared characteristic amongst entrepreneurs. They are problem-solvers and seek to find solutions for issues many people are facing. They have a barometer for opportunities and know when to make their move. 2. Just do itSpeaking of opportunities, they are always there, but there
a marked difference between observing them and actually taking action. What sets entrepreneurs from the rest is their propensity for risk-taking and taking a leap into the unknown.3. Work with inborn skillsSome of the most successful entrepreneurs have been known to start businesses around their own hobbies. Setting out on the start-up road with only money-making in mind will only cause you to break down very early on in the process. Billionaire Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group, began his career with his own music magazine at 16, which soon evolved into a mail-order record business and then to Virgin Records, a
chain of record stores in the UK.4. Roll with the punchesThey know how to adapt and evolve to changing times and consumer demand. They constantly innovate and come up with remarkable ideas that continue to drive the business forward. Bill Gates, one of the world's youngest entrepreneurs at the age of 31, famously said “In three years, every product my company makes will be obsolete. The only question is whether we will make them obsolete or somebody else will.”
