The successful internet marketing entrepreneur is one who is confident in his ability, always striving to grow his business and to grow personally in terms of self development and takes responsibility for his actions and results. They consistently achieve good results by good judgment rather than luck and they have a mindset that is based on consistency and persistence.

Below are 7 main characteristics demonstrated by these successful entrepreneurs. It is important to note that not all entrepreneurs possess all these characteristics. However, each entrepreneur does possess the majority of them. The list is not exhaustive.

1. An internet marketing entrepreneur as with all good entrepreneurs does not see problems or issues as something to worry about but rather as challenges which need to be overcome. Instead of looking for excuses why they cannot achieve something, they spend their time looking at ways in which they can solve their problems.

2. He is very comfortable in his own skill and skin and has principles and beliefs which he adheres to. The successful internet entrepreneur is not a fan of doing something just because it is culturally accepted to do it, especially if he disagrees with it. He is very independent and does not bow easily to peer pressure.

3. Is not a fan of trying to change people. Instead, he believes in moulding individuals in a way that would make them more effectively use their strengths and compensate for their weaknesses. As far as he is concerned leaders are developed not born; he believes anyone can become a leader.

4. They are kids at heart, excited by new challenges, with a zest for learning. They love to improve and do not have the capacity to rest on their laurels. Standing still to an internet marketing entrepreneur is as bad as regressing.

5. The successful internet marketing entrepreneur is selective of people he spends time with. He usually allocates the majority of his time to people who and activities which add value to him or his business – this could be his family, his mentor, his top team members or friends. He does not like to waste his time on people whose words speak louder than their actions.

6. Possesses a great deal of humanity. An internet marketing entrepreneur whose only aim is to become as rich as possible, even at the expense of others can never fulfil their potential. The successful ones are those who also pay a keen interest in helping others achieve the success they have. Not only does it help them self actualise, it also could translate into considerable residual income.

7. He is authentic and original, always looking for innovative ways of growing his business. He will learn from the best but is also committed to being the best and that includes leading the way in new technology, processes or activities.

The successful internet marketing entrepreneur displays the majority of these seven characteristics. They are always striving for ways to fulfil their potential but it is important to point out that they will never achieve their full potential due to their nature. By design, they are always looking to improve and never stand still. They may achieve all their goals and their dreams but will always look for a new challenge to be overcome.
