A small scale business is usually an independent one where its owners risk their terms and commence . It shows self reliability, compassion , determination and fearlessness.They have the confidence to build them up to be successful entrepreneurs.  According to a study conducted by The Guardian Life Small Business Research Institute, most successful small-business owners share a common set of traits.



Planning to put together a small business takes time, energy and knowledge -- or at least a willingness to learn. During the process of getting a business to get started and even after, problems and issues tend to appear. Small-business owners are flexible in handling these obstacles and finding workarounds as needed. They don't allow setbacks to stop them from meeting their goals.



Collaboration is needed during the initial stages of business to understand it's ongoings effectively and to ensure a safe progress in business.

Small-business owners know how to effectively perform tasks to people within their organization. They also know how to build successful relationships with everyone they contact through their business. This includes partners, their management team, employees, vendors, consultants and customers. The ability of managers to collaborate and delegate gives a small business the opportunity to experience growth. 



The reason people start up their own business is because of their desire to be self-reliant. Rather than work for someone else, they want to have control of their future. They don't look to others to make decisions. Instead, they make decisions on their own. They realize that the quality of their future is, to a large extent, within their control.
