Being a man of your word, (say what you mean, and mean what you say) and the ability to count without taking off you shoes helps.

Perseverance.


It is suprising what some people were able to accomplish who didn't have enough sense to quit when everyone told them to.

Salesmanship/Delivery.
You have to be able to sell yourself ...then deliver on what you sold.
Your word and reputation is all you really have in the service industry.

Tenacity.



Back to Ed's desk - is that Dr. Pepper and Diet Dr. Pepper mixed together to form a MID-GRADE drink that costs more than diet but less than hi test? :p

All of theses answers are great, which leads me to believe that non is any more important than the other. It takes all of them to together to make you be successful. They are like a chain that holds the business together and a chain is only as strong as it's weakest link.

I've been thinking about this since yesterday, and I agree with redoak and Mow ED on this. Determination, tenacity and responsibility. Basic human qualities having nothing to do with being in business. I've been trying to get more organized and manage my time better and it has made a noticable difference this year.
