Most scholars and industry leaders acknowledge that all successful small business owners share the tenacity trait but that it’s your own tastes and personality quirks that can make your brand really stand out. We put together this quiz that reveals what your favorite music of the past few years reveals about your entrepreneurial style.

If your favorite album is:

Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo: you are goal-oriented and passionate about what you do. Tip: Many of the best things that will happen in your business will come at the heels of failure. Don’t let fear stand in the way of what you want to accomplish. If you continually try new things and don’t let mistakes keep you down for long, you won’t lose your passion.

Adele’s 25: You are an incredibly hardworking perfectionist who uses resources wisely. Tip: Don’t forget to take breaks and indulge in your favorite activities once in a while. Getting your head out of work-mode will let you re-charge so you come back at your best.

Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording): You are highly creative and have a knack for approaching familiar problems in a new way. Tip: Remember that creativity alone won’t get you the success you crave. Schedule regular brainstorming and strategizing sessions into your day-to-day work routine so that you can actually make something happen out of your amazing ideas.

Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late: You have an uncanny understanding of what your customers want and where the industry is headed. Tip: Don’t let your big-picture mindset get in the way of the little things that are important to customers too, like exceptional service and building personal relationships.

Beck’s Morning Phase: You are an innovator and an eclectic who loves to draw inspiration and talent from all sorts of places and people. Tip: Use your natural ability to make diverse friends to outsource some of your more mundane tasks — like bookkeeping, marketing and HR.

Beyonce’s Lemonade: You’re aggressive, direct and don’t take anyone else’s BS. Tip: Surround yourself by good people who “get” you and don’t need a lot of handholding. They will be inspired by your big personality, not turned off— and you can’t run an empire alone.

Tame Impala’s Currents: You’re a hipster. Tip: Open a distillery.
