#115: Tactical Tuesday: 6 Traits of an Entrepreneurial Mindset


Jason A. Duprat, Entrepreneur, Healthcare Practitioner and Host of the Healthcare Entrepreneur Academy podcast talks about the differences between the mindset of an employee and an entrepreneur. He identifies six traits you can develop to effectively transition from employee to entrepreneur to help ensure startup success. 



  • If you’re going to transition from employee to entrepreneur, you need to shift your overall mindset and the way you think.

  • Mindset is the number one factor that can impact your ability to succeed in business. Your daily thinking patterns govern results. 

  • One, learn how to make decisions. As the business owner, you have the final say in terms of what needs to get done, when it gets done and how it gets done. 

  • Two, learn to be comfortable being uncomfortable. Rather than thinking inside the box, you  should create your own sandbox. 

  • Three, work to learn instead of working to earn. Entrepreneurship requires new learning on a daily basis. 

  • Four, don’t tolerate the status quo. To succeed, you should always be on the lookout for new ways to do things.

  • Five, learn how to sell value as opposed to time. The price you set and the fees you charge will be based on the value you provide.

  • Six, learn how to work until the job is done. The buck stops with you – entrepreneurship will sometimes require working long hours. 

  • These six entrepreneurial mindset traits can be learned. 

  • Surround yourself with people who have the same mindset to accelerate your path for business success.
