Make sure you have a suitable outgoing personality, in that you are happy to be always in communication with people be it by phone, letter, email and site meetings.

As I stated before if you can win people over, they will often do work for you because they want to help you rather than because they have to. I think it is vital to have a level head (to be cool and collected) We can often be faced with challenges or hurdles which may at the outset seem unachieveable. However, if you stand back and break it down anything can be done.

Creative?
Creative 
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.
