As the founder of Miami-based Florida Conservations Inc., Antonio Junior is a successful entrepreneur. Even though he attained success, Antonio Junior continues to educate himself on entrepreneurship through books and articles. This passion for learning is a key trait usually shared by entrepreneurs. Here are three more traits commonly shared among those who start their own businesses.

1. Resilience – Being successful is about failing gracefully. Sir Winston Churchill said, “Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.” Entrepreneurs understand that failure comes with the territory, and they know how to deal with their failure, learn what they can from it, and try again.

2. Passion – The successful entrepreneur is passionate about what they do. While it’s easy to think money is the main motivator, the real motivation is usually in helping people through their company’s product or service.

3. Confidence – This trait ties in well to the other two, as entrepreneurs need to have plenty of self-confidence to get through failures, while also possessing a high level of confidence in their company. An entrepreneur who is both self-confident and confident in his company will find it easier to network and build valuable relationships that lead to further business opportunities.

Antonio Junior is the founder of Florida Conservations Inc., located in Miami, Florida When he’s not working, Antonio Junior is passionate about helping the homeless, and he actively supports organizations catering to homeless families, which begins with understanding how the issue affects them.

According to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, there were 564,708 homeless people in the United States as of January, 2015. Of those, 206,000 of them were from homeless families with children. Most homeless families are headed by a single-parent, and other contributing factors include domestic abuse, limited education, or mental illness.

Unfortunately, these reports don’t provide an accurate view of how long these families have been homeless, but the National Alliance to End Homelessness says family homelessness usually isn’t long-term. Around 75 percent of all families who go to homeless shelters stay temporarily, and some don’t even require any assistance, as they are able to quickly bounce back and find housing.

Rehousing homeless families in a timely manner is essential for returning normalcy and stability to their lives. To learn more about homelessness and ways to help, visit www.endhomelessness.org.

Two Emerging Trends in Entrepreneurship

An accomplished businessman, Antonio Junior founded Diversified Management International, Inc., in 1996 and Florida Conservation, Inc., in 2003. He has continuously served as the CEO of both companies, located in Miami Springs, Florida. In addition to his other pursuits, Antonio Junior closely follows entrepreneurial trends.

In 2016, the focus in entrepreneurship has been on developing sectors that some might consider “boring” when compared to the bigger startups that have emerged in recent years. Successful business, however, is largely predicated on finding and meeting consumer needs rather than being the “next big thing” on the cover of Forbes magazine. Expect the health care, education, business-to-business, and energy sectors to be a hotbed of startups over the next few years, as these are untapped markets for innovation.

Entrepreneurship is also trending in the direction of wide-ranging profit sharing, which creates an environment that spreads the wealth among the many instead of the few. There will be a steady movement further toward ecosystems that are geared toward economies of sharing that offer tangible value to the sectors in which they operate.
