1. PUNCTUALITY AS AN ENTREPRENEUR
The importance of being on time and getting things completed by the established deadline cannot be overstated. When your client hires you to complete a job, they need to know that the job will be completed in a timely manner.
Of course, things may come up and accidents do happen, but for the most part, you should do everything within your power to be sure to are fulfilling your deadlines and completing jobs in a timely manner.
Punctuality also means showing up on time to meetings and to every job. If something happens where you are running a few minutes late, always be sure to call ahead and let someone know so they are not wondering whether or not you will show up.
2. BEST ENTREPRENEURS ARE COMMUNICATORS
Excellent communication skills are what makes the difference between a professional and an amateur.
Be sure to do everything possible to keep the lines of communication open between you and your client. This means keeping them up to date on progress as well as quickly informing them of any problems or setbacks that arise.
Communication skills also mean developing the ability to explain things to your client in a way they understand.
Your clients should never feel as though they cannot ask you a question, and likewise, they should never feel as though you are unapproachable or unfriendly.

3. TOP PROFESSIONALS ARE RELIABLE
This means fulfilling your commitments and keeping your word.
It means following through on any promises you make, and ensuring that you do the best job possible.
When you are hired to perform a certain job, your client needs to know that they can count on you to do the job and to do it right.
They should not have to worry about whether or not you will do what you have promised to do. Likewise, reliability goes hand in hand with having a strong work ethic.
You must strive each and everyday to deliver the best possible results you can.
Do a job that you can take pride in, and your clients are not only far more likely to hire you again, they will spread the word and increase your business via word of mouth recommendations!
4. honesty is an important trait for a top professional
5. humility a top trait of top entrepreneurs
As a professional, we want to do the absolute best job we can each and every time. And yet, we are still human and sometimes, things do not go as planned.
Dealing with an unhappy customer in a diplomatic manner that leaves both parties happy is a valuable skill to develop.
Know when to admit that you are wrong, and know when to apologize and try to make things right. Instead of being defensive when a client expresses displeasure, take the time to truly listen to what they are trying to say, and do everything possible to find a common ground.
