Lone Wolf Entrepreneur

The Traits Needed To Be A Lone Wolf Entrepreneur

There is a myth in circulation that there is no such thing as a Lone Wolf Entrepreneur.

That all entrepreneurs are part of a team or network.

I personally believe the opposite.

There are countless people who work on their ventures alone.

It may be a stay at home mom who runs a successful blog.

It could be an author who self publishes and does all their promotion alone.

A YouTuber may not have a team who works on creating and promoting content with them.

The list is far too large to simply dismiss the term “Lone Wolf Entrepreneur”

Granted, some entrepreneurs may reach a level of success and hire people or form a team of like minded individuals.

But the fact remains.

They started alone on their entrepreneurial path.

They were originally a Lone Wolf Entrepreneur.

In this article we will look at some of the traits needed.

Below are excerpts from the Lone Wolf Entrepreneur book available on Amazon – Link Below


Desire and Clarity of Purpose.



You need to have an overwhelming desire to succeed at your chosen goals.

You have to put it at the center of your life.

It has to be an obsession where the discomfort of not achieving it is dwarfed by the sheer burning desire to achieve it.

The desire has to be strong enough to carry you through all of the hard work and highs and lows of being an entrepreneur.

Rest assured, you will have both in abundance.

Especially at the beginning, long before any results are even visible on the horizon.

If you do not desire the outcome to the degree that enables you to endure discomfort, then you will not achieve your goals.

It is as simple as that.


In order for you to keep this desire strong, you have to know what you want and how you are going to do it.

This is clarity of purpose.

Why and how.

You cannot have vague goals backed by scattered ill thought out plans.

You need to know in absolute certainty.


“This is what I have to do in order to attain what I want.”


No ifs, buts, or maybes.


“This is what I have to do in order to attain what I want.”


Then do it, and don’t stop until you achieve your goal.


Focus and Commitment.



Two other traits you need as a Lone Wolf Entrepreneur are focus and commitment.

Your focus has to be dominated by your goals.

This is why your desire is so important.

If your desire is so strong it becomes an obsession, then your focus will follow.

Your efforts and actions always directly follow what your attention/focus is on.

If your desire is centered on leveling up a character in a video game, then rest assured, your focus will be there guiding your actions and commitment.

The more you desire and obsess over leveling, the more you will focus on attaining it. You will commit your time and actions to playing the game.

Your business as an entrepreneur should be carried by that same desire, focus, and commitment.

Your actions will then follow.

This is the fuel to the engine of success.

If you obsess and focus your actions on leveling your character; eventually you will get there.

Your business is absolutely no different.


Know Yourself and Your Habits.



If you are aiming to be an entrepreneur, let alone a Lone Wolf Entrepreneur, then you need to know yourself and your habits.

What I mean by this is that you need to take careful self-assessment of yourself and what causes you to act like you do.

Your strengths and weaknesses if you will.

If you find yourself getting distracted or procrastinating, then you need to realize that and establish why you do it and what triggers it.

If you know that you work better in the morning, then you should realize this and seek to capitalize upon on it.

Everything we do is based on conscious decisions that are based around our subconscious which is influenced by our ethics.

Someone can talk about going to the gym.

If they have a habit of lounging on the couch watching TV, then rest assured, their gym routine habit has a competitor that will win a portion of the time.

You need to eliminate bad habits and replace them with good ones.

Everything you do in life is a choice.

Not what happens to you, but what you choose to do.

This can apply to action or reaction.

It is all on you every day of your life.

You can blame whoever you want for whatever you want.

It was your choice how you acted or reacted.

Never forget that.


Self-Confidence and Self-Accountability



To survive and thrive as a Lone Wolf Entrepreneur, you have to possess the traits of self-confidence and self-accountability.

Self-confidence is needed because you will have to learn to believe in yourself when few, if any, people do.

When you first start hinting about becoming an entrepreneur, you are going to be met with all kinds of opinions from those around you:

“You can’t do that, it’s too hard.”

“What makes you think you are going to succeed?’

“Don’t waste your time, it’s rare anyone succeeds.”

“That’s cool, let me know how you get on.”

“Good luck, so what are you thinking for dinner?”


The majority of people around you will be in one of 4 camps.


Against you doing it, out of concern you will fail.

Amused that you think you are capable.




I assure you that the first three will be the most vocal and numerous.

So, as a Lone Wolf Entrepreneur, it is crucial that you have self-confidence.

Without it you will be hindering yourself and leaning towards failure every step of the way.

Do not confuse self-confidence with arrogance.

No one likes arrogance directed at them.

That much I assure you of.

You don’t have to be humble to the point of appearing unconfident in yourself, but that is far better than being overconfident when dealing with detractors.

The only person who has to truly believe in you is you.

Your success is not contingent on whether someone else thinks you can do it.

It is contingent on you believing in yourself and using that belief to fuel your actions.
