Entrepreneurs succeed in proportion to the number of problems they solve. So if you’re an entrepreneur, or think you’re destined for entrepreneurial greatness, you’re pretty much a professional problem solver.
“But I’m not part of Mensa!” you might say, as your frontal lobe quivers with the thought of full-time problem solving. It’s a reasonable knee-jerk reaction. But entrepreneurship doesn’t require you to have a higher IQ than 95 percent of people. You just need more tenacity than 95 percent of people. And tenacity is a skill you can learn.
