Community manager musings is a series of occasional posts looking at the roles and skills of community managers – usually within science.
I love this post by Seth Godin that outlines 4 traits of entrepreneurs:
1. They make decisions.
2. They invest in activities and assets that aren’t a sure thing.
3. They persuade others to support a mission with a non-guaranteed outcome.
4. This one is the most amorphous, the most difficult to pin down and thus the juiciest: They embrace (instead of run from) the work of doing things that might not work.
