Interpreting your Score from the ETHOS Self-Employment Assessment

Score 20

Excellent. A perfect score. You are a born entrepreneur. If you are not presently running your own small business you should definitely start one — the sooner the better.

 

Score 17 – 19

Very good. You definitely have what it takes to succeed in a small business of your own. Your way to business success is wide open, however, creating a business takes hard work and strong support – don’t discount the need for a professional business coach/mentor.

 

Score 14 – 16

Good. You have most of the qualities of a successful entrepreneur with a few identified weak spots. Those weak spots can be transformed in to strengths by working with your business coach/mentor and learning from their advice and experience.

 

Score 8 – 13

So so. The prospect of your success in a business of your own is questionable. You have some weakness that may outweigh your strengths and technical skills. If you still want to pursue an entrepreneurial venture, your business coach can help you assess your weaknesses more fully and determine if your business concept is viable. Self-employment may not be your best choice.

 

Score 7 or less

Starting your own business right now is likely not in your best interests. If you still have interest, talk to a business coach to determine how you could improve your readiness for self-employment in the future.
