Posted by 2 on

During a recent conference on e-commerce and entrepreneurs, I was asked what qualities I consider essential in entrepreneurs and the first thing that came to mind was “passion”. Why is passion on the top of my list? Because without passion, it’s hard to keep up the energy and commitment required as an entrepreneur to ensure the business succeeds. It is also the quality that distinguishes one business from another.
