WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEUR

“In his new book, The Wealth Elite: A Groundbreaking Study of the Psychology of the Super Rich, the historian Rainer Zitelmann attempts an empirical investigation into the link between personality traits and the creation of enormous wealth. He suggests there are five overriding characteristics of self-made multimillionaires: they are optimistic; they are nonconformists; they are driven by gut instinct, not business analysis; they are likely to have been athletic in their youth; and they are good at selling and did sales work of one sort or another when they were growing up. Having been partners with dozens of highly successful entrepreneurs, I thin these highlights are well observed.”

The Wealth Elite: A Groundbreaking Study of the Psychology of the Super Rich

“The Wealth Elite is a complete, educational analysis of successful and wealthy entrepreneurs. All topics are covered in depth with research to back up Dr. Zitelmann’s findings. I particularly enjoyed reading the interview responses of the individuals in the study. Although each participant came from a different background, it was easy to see a general pattern of thinking among these successful individuals…. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the psychology behind the wealthy.”

Book Review: The Wealth Elite

“Rainer Zitelmann’s study of the psychology of the super rich is an ambitious project. Few could be better qualified for it than Dr Zitelmann – an historian, sociologist, journalist, businessman and investor. There has been no comparable study and it is a compelling read for all who need to understand the characteristics and motivations of rich entrepreneurs. These people drive economic growth, back innovation, create jobs and finance philanthropic projects. So why has such a study never been attempted before? It is hard to access these people and design questionnaires that generate a meaningful response.”
