Starting and successfully running a business without any competition might seem like an unusual – if not impossible – way of making money. And yet, it’s a concept that can and does work, if you know the ‘what’ and the ‘why’ of the business you’re actually getting into.
Whatever line of work you’re in, have you ever thought about why you’re doing the job that you do? Is it for the money, is it the career path or is it something else? Think a little deeper and you’ll find that what you’re actually doing is part of a chain in a problem-solving process. But have you ever thought about what problem you would like to solve? The world awaits you!
if you decide to go it alone, you will need to become seriously analytical about your business. You also need to be ready for action, immediate action, no delay. It’s going to be like jumping into cold water, getting straight out again, write down the temperature and describing the general feeling and the result of the jump.
How big is your ask? It may not be as big as you think – if you know how to ask the question. More to the point, asking the question rather than not asking – for fear of rejection – actually increases your chances of a positive response. Would you like to learn more?
Starting a business is quite a task. There is so much to learn, to do and to take care of. Starting-up can be quite draining and leave you without any motivation or drive to keep going.
All first-time start-ups go through that process. If that is you, you’re certainly not alone. What if I would tell you that this doesn’t have to be like that? Starting-up can actually be really fun and very rewarding.
Find your niche and find your fortune. Well, as we all know, it doesn’t necessarily work like that. Besides, as entrepreneurs, it’s not about the money. It’s about the value we create. But which niche is right for you? John di Stefano takes a look at where the savvy start-up might be heading to solve tomorrow’s problems.
To run a successful business means to be good in many areas. Starting with developing the right ideas to managing the existing infrastructure and the technical aspect of the day to day work. Each of those areas requires different skills, but all of them together are vital to run a successful business.
With all the courage, confidence and creativity needed to start your own business, you’re raring to go. But then something in the back of your mind says “what if…?” Is this really such a good idea? Do I really want to step into the unknown? It’s only natural to have a dose of the fear factor. But there are ways you can overcome this – and live the life you really want to lead.
Business ideas often come to us at the strangest times and in unusual places. In your mind you can see that great idea coming to life, what it will look like and how it will work. You can’t wait to get started. But before you get too excited, step back. Identify if you’re idea actually solves a problem and that it’s something that people are willing to pay you for. Your research will tell you if it’s a valid business idea!
In some shape or form, entrepreneurs have been part of the fabric of society for millennia. But how do we define who is and who isn’t an entrepreneur? By definition, it’s not easy: the role of the entrepreneur has evolved through the years. Not just as a part of society, but actually shaping the world that we live in. However you look at it, life as an entrepreneur is all about value!
