5 ‘Bad’ Millennial Traits That Are Actually Good for Entrepreneurs

I’ll be the first to admit it: We millennials have a bad rep. They say we’re lazy, ungrateful and that we don’t grow up fast enough. (Anyone remember the Time magazine article?)
That said, we do have qualities which work in our favor. We dream big. We’re unafraid. We don’t understand the word “no.” All these attributes are very useful for entrepreneurs.
Right after college I was hired as a journalist and a few years later I founded my PR company, Sarah Rose Public Relations. In true millennial fashion, I was trying to run before I could walk. I didn’t go to business school or have an office. All I had was an idea and a longing for success.
Two years later, my company has blossomed. I have clients across the nation and the freedom to work whenever and wherever I want. I’ve watched my peers succeed too.
So for those young aspiring entrepreneurs looking to make it big, here is how to turn those stereotypically “bad” millennial traits to your advantage.
Being impatient. Our generation wants what we want when we want it NOW. We millennial entrepreneurs, however, can use “impatience” to propel us forward. We’re restless in non-leadership positions and want to get going already.
