In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Eric Siu shares what he has learned from interviewing over 300 entrepreneurs. The difference between those entrepreneurs who succeed and those that don't succeed lies with a few key attributes. Stay more persistent than others. Even if you're not necessarily as smart and talented as those in your circle, you can still put your head down and keep going. Siu cites Albert Einstein as a prominent historical figure who just knew how to keep going.

Another consistently helpful move is the dedication to keep learning. Warren Buffet is famously known to read for more than five hours each day.

Finally, if you have an ability to be extremely resourceful, you will flourish as an entrepreneur. By being able to consult your current circle, as well as build up the network with like-minded people, you can rise to the top with or without the natural skill.
