PERSONAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES WORKSHEET
The chart in the link here will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and will give you a better idea if you’re ready to become a small business owner. Examine each of the skills areas listed in the chart. Ask yourself whether you possess some or all of the skills listed in the parentheses. Then rate your skills in each area by circling the appropriate number, using a scale of 1-5, with 1 as low, 2 as between low and medium, 3 as medium, 4 as between medium and high, and 5 as high. This is what I called Pamela Lim’s Personality Test for business owners.
After you’ve rated yourself in each area, total up the numbers. Then apply the following rating scale:
- If your total is less than 20 points, you should reconsider whether owning a business is the right step for you.
- If your total is between 20 and 25, you’re on the verge of being ready, but you may be wise to spend some time strengthening some of your weaker areas.
- Now, if your total is above 25 after taking this personality test, you’re ready to start a new business.
