Have you ever looked at another entrepreneur and thought, “How do they think like that?” Or sat and looked in awe at how they ran their business? There are all kinds of people on the planet with multiple personality types, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.

As entrepreneurs, there are three main types of personalities that emerge. Not only will you find out which personality type is yours, but you’ll learn the strengths and weaknesses of each type. And most importantly, you’ll learn what to do to leverage these personality types into millionaire status. 

The intellectual

Intellectual entrepreneurs are usually expert strategists. They focus on planning, strategizing, and detailing out what needs to be done. This entrepreneurial type often loves their spreadsheets, systems, and processes (and is a genius at creating ways for things to run more efficiently. Operations, tactics, and statistics are where these entrepreneurs succeed. 

The downside? Intellectually based entrepreneurs struggle with being more creative and tuning into their more intuitive side. They can also be a little more regimented, which can make it more difficult for their audience to feel emotionally connected to them. 

For intellectual entrepreneurs to thrive, they need to work on developing their intuitive side. That will help their audience to bond with their content and allow their personality to shine. 

You’re most likely an intellectual entrepreneur if you lose yourself in strategy, see the patterns in events and behavior, and understand how systems and processes work in a way that leaves most people mystified.

“Because the people who are cray enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.” – Steve Jobs

The intuitive

Intuitive entrepreneurs are people who excel at connecting with others. These entrepreneurs are often healers, spiritual mentors, and other people who deal with the human mind, body, and spirit. One of their strengths is their innate ability to relate to other people. They often understand emotions and make their audience or clients feel supported. Intuitive entrepreneurs have important missions, visions, and purpose, however, there are a few key areas where they struggle. 

These entrepreneurs are likely to throw up a sales page for their offer and a week later, look at their screen baffled at the realization that they’ve made zero sales. Yet, they didn’t properly market their offer. 

Intuitive entrepreneurs can feel the power and magnitude of their work, but they don’t always know the best way to get it into the hand of the people who need it. This can be extremely frustrating for this type of entrepreneur because they know that what they have to offer could change lives. But they really struggle to wrap their heads around the systems, processes, and structures of their business to create the results they want. In some cases, this type of entrepreneur can also struggle with the grit required to get through the harder parts of their business. 

In order for intuitive entrepreneurs to grow successful businesses, they need to develop their understanding of things like marketing, systems, and processes. This is to ensure that the mission of the entrepreneur has the right foundation to successfully launch their message and get it into the hands of the people who are ready to buy. 

You’re most likely an intuitive entrepreneur if you feel deeply connected to your actual work and the people that you serve/what you offer the world, but you can struggle to understand the business side of things. 

The willful 

Willful entrepreneurs are your classic hustlers. They have phenomenal tenacity, grit, and persistence. These are the entrepreneurs that get back up almost as quickly as they’ve been knocked down. Willful entrepreneurs may not think of themselves as the smartest or most attractive, but they without a doubt win the most determined award. 

However, while having the will to move forward is a must on the entrepreneurial journey (if you’re going to go the distance), then you need other tools in your back pocket. A willful entrepreneur who does not have the intuitive skills to find their alignment will continue creating messy situations and mistakes in business. If they also don’t have the intellectual side to put all of their energy and gusto into a system that can work for them, the business will not run smoothly. So while being a willful entrepreneur is to have a lot of power and momentum at your disposal, it’s also unchecked by the attributes that properly direct that energy. 

You’re most likely a willful entrepreneur if you get into the hustle and know how to make it happen. If you fall down six times and get up seven without losing much of a beat—you’re probably a willful entrepreneur. 

The triad

The triad is the holy grail of entrepreneurship. This is the secret to becoming a millionaire. When you learn all three mindsets of each entrepreneur type, you become unstoppable. In this scenario, the triad’s willfulness will carry them through the trials and tribulations (and there will be many) of owning a business. At the same time, that energy, brava, and tenacity will be channeled through systems, processes, and strategies that allow the business to grow beyond the entrepreneur. When combining those tools with the ability to intuit and align with the right decisions for the business—that’s real power. 

It’s not any one of these things that creates a millionaire entrepreneur. It’s in cultivating all of them that you reach millionaire status.

Growing up in a small Canadian Mennonite farming community, I was surrounded by many uncles, aunts, cousins, and other close-knit family. We focused on faith, family, and work, and our daily lives were filled with service to others. If a storm or fire damaged a barn, the neighbors would come together for a barn raising. No one needed to ask for help. This was just how things were. We knew we could accomplish more when we joined forces and worked together. (more…)
