Who can be a successful entrepreneur?

During a discussion today with a colleague, the topic came up of "what makes a successful entrepreneur?"

We discussed lots of attributes and reminisced about books and studies we have read on the topic, but when we finished it seemed that we only had two characteristics left...Vision and Practicality.

1. Vision because the entrepreneur needs to be able to see the big picture and create.

2. Practicality because they need to see where the big picture vision intersects with reality, so they can plan and follow through with the steps required to create the vision.

Of course there are a million other things that are either related too or can support those characteristics, but those two are cornerstones.
