What is the difference between an entrepreneur and someone who is self-employed? In my latest interview, I have the perfect guest to help us answer this very question.

Gino Wickman is the Founder of EOS, The Entrepreneurial Operating System, which helps others run great businesses. He’s been an entrepreneur since he was 21 years old and has sold millions of copies of his books, including Entrepreneurial Leap and Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business.

In this episode, we dig into the six essential traits of a successful entrepreneur, why people have to be born with these traits as they cannot be taught, and how Gino has been able to have such incredible success while taking up to 12 weeks off each year.

You’ll definitely want to check out Gino’s Entrepreneur in the Making Assessment tool by visiting E-Leap.com to find out if you have the same traits that most successful entrepreneurs have. I think you’re going to absolutely love this episode.
