Alphabet of entrepreneurial types

I have been a student of entrepreneurs for many years and watched many types of people creating ventures. I have created an Alphabet of Entrepreneurial Types that typified the many types of entrepreneurs I have witnessed. I have observed. There is no ‘one best way’ to be an entrepreneur and each type has an Achilles Heel that can trip them up.

A few examples:

  • Edgewalker, who lives between two worlds and has a high tolerance for ambiguity, but may risk falling between two stools;
  • Juggler, who can keep lots of balls in the air, but risks dropping important ones;
  • Lone-Ranger, who can survive alone, but may be blind to his own mistakes.

Take a look at the Alphabet of Entrepreneurial Types.

PLEASE NOTE: There is tons of useful stuff on Startup Owl, a site that’s been going for a dozen years. So keep browsing, but know that the founder, Will, now devotes most of his time and energy to his new website that you should definitely visit:
