Grit and determination. You can't be a quitter if you want to succeed in development. Asking for money from a stranger is one of the hardest things to do and the hardest skill to master. Being coy or unsure of yourself is not something that will help you succeed. As an introvert, I struggled with this, but I found that both were qualities that could be overcome with practice and coaching, and that's exactly what happened.
