Believing oneself to be an entrepreneur is one of those projects in which both professional and personal skills are involved. Therefore, identifying its strengths and weaknesses is a necessary step and prior to the implementation of a business project. He is embarked on an adventure where everything will rest on his abilities alone, requiring the entrepreneur to recognize his qualities, but also his limits or, to put it another way, his character traits. Defining your business project therefore also means defining the compatibility of this project with your personality.
A focus on their professional and personal skills
A business project requires professional and personal skills with the entrepreneur having to be clear. In order to assess these, the entrepreneur may consider carrying out a skills assessment. This evaluation technique offers an effective initial focus in order to anticipate the effectiveness of your project. A skills assessment will make it possible to assess the gap between his desire and the reality related to the realization of his project. If a business project is often based on personal desire, the concrete realities can however sometimes move away from it. Targeting these realities, in order to evaluate if they are adaptable to our personality or if they are compatible with our functional modalities, they are an essential basis for the implementation of any project. A skills assessment will have the advantage of providing the hindsight needed to carry out your business project, as well as shedding light on your personal and professional skills, so that they can coexist.

Drawing up a list of the qualities required for the realization of a project and responding to the last ones in a lucid way can also help to see things more clearly. An entrepreneurial project requires skills that have autonomy, tenacity, motivation, endurance or even skills of anticipation and adaptation to demand or on the go. Confronting one’s desires and character traits with the requirements required for the realization of one’s business project is therefore a necessary step prior to its implementation. Moreover, being aware of one’s personal limits, avoiding debts and allowing doing to evolve are projects compatible with external reality, because they are old and can be achieved. There are faults like that of procrastination which makes it impossible to complete a project. Only one possibility in this case is to be coached so as not to find yourself in a dead end. There are also professional situations which are revealed by some as impossible to franchise, such as that of prospecting sometimes when it is a key activity, such as that of managing difficult teams and being incapable of imposing one’s authority…
