Bill Wagner Analyzes; Is Your Personality the Ticket to Financial Freedom?
(CALIFORNIA) Someone once said “There are no elevators to success. You have to take the stairs.” Perhaps there are no elevators, but when armed with The Entrepreneur Next Door, there are certainly escalators. In The Entrepreneur Next Door (Entrepreneur Press, June 2006), Bill Wagner analyzes the characteristics and personality traits that make up a successful entrepreneur and invites readers to take an online personality test to determine their own entrepreneurial strengths and weaknesses.
The Five-Tier Performance Pyramid outlined in this book helps the reader learn more about their own personality, job behaviors, actions, results and metrics in comparison with those of already successful entrepreneurs. Studies have shown that a person will be five times more successful in a position if he or she has the right personality for that particular job. In addition, research indicates that many personality types, even less entrepreneurial ones, actually do have the potential to birth a successful business.
Wagner says, “Over the past eight years, I, and the members of my company, Accord Management Systems Inc., have interviewed and studied the behaviors of more than 1,500 fearless business founders and leaders. Most were under 40 years old, primarily in their 20s and 30s. They also all had annual sales of more than $1 million. What we discovered from our study is that, as different as these entrepreneurs appear, with relation to each other, they share a number of common personality traits. These traits were the predominant indicators of their success; far outweighing what we usually rely on to determine one’s success: education, family ties, skills, and experience.” Wagner is the top expert on understanding workplace behavior and knows what successful traits entrepreneurs posses that lead to financial independence. He can tell potential entrepreneurs how to start a business based on their best qualities and skills, and what they can do to achieve entrepreneurial success.
Bill Wagner is widely respected speaker at more than 100 nationwide events annually. He is a Certified Speaking Professional and a member of the National Speaking Association as well as the Institute on Management Consultants. He works daily with entrepreneur-focused organizations such as, Vistage, The Young Entrepreneur Organization, and the International Franchise Association. Wagner is also a widely published author who has been featured in Entrepreneur magazine, California CEO, LA Business Journal, Franchise World and the Wall Street Journal. Wagner is the CEO and co-founder of Accord Management Systems, Inc., a behavioral consultancy born on the premise of helping executives and entrepreneurs get the “people side of business right.” His company focuses on bringing a fresh and objective perspective to the business world. Bill Wagner promises to teach both novice entrepreneurs and accomplished business leaders alike how to identify their own unique personalities and use those traits to run a successful company.
