THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS - 5 TIPS FROM UK ENTREPRENEURS
- KNOW WHAT YOUR INTERESTS ARE
If you think you have been stuck in the wrong job, well try starting the wrong business and you will definitely fall apart. Most people tend to perform well in areas of interest, be it at school, sports and even in the work place; people bring out their best in what they love to do. The same applies to business, first you need to know what you are passionate about and enjoy doing. If you do something just because it promises to make you a lot of money, one day you will grow weary of waking up to do the same thing repeatedly. Find something that makes you tick, get excited and something that you will not feel like was forced down your throat. Do what you love and most of the times you will be successful says Ros from Metallic Elephant.
BELIEVE IN YOUR SELF
Well, not everyone will believe in you, if you are even working now and share your dreams with your colleagues or friends, most people will discourage you, since they do not share in your vision. Only you know what you really want and at the back of your head, you can already see the bigger picture. Do not let people discourage you and deter you from your dreams. Believe in your talents, capabilities and that you really can make it. Believing in your idea, will also make it easier for others to believe, for instance if you believe in your idea, you will be able to explain to an investor or a customer passionately and in a clear manner. Soon others will believe in you.
DON”T GIVE UP DESPITE HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
Most of the multi-billion industries you see today, have a starting point and most of the times, it is not a very attractive one. For example the Virgin brand, did not automatically start with the lucrative airlines that it boasts of today. Richard Bransonstarted in a basement with Virgin Records and now has become one of the most successful brands in the world. Therefore, if you have the idea, do not just sit and wait for the money to make a huge industry, simply start small, and once people see what you can achieve with small, they will be ready to invest in you.
You may have the idea and you are set to go, but nobody knows it all. You can ask for advice from experts and other entrepreneurs so that they can guide you to creating a successful venture says Rachel from Tiny Box Company. Avoid negativity and surround your self with positive people and mentors who will help you in realizing your goals.
Once you have the idea, be focused into making it a success; do not leave it halfway just because another seemingly appealing opportunity has presented itself. Most entrepreneurs have failed for failure to focus on what they ventured to do. Having multiple ventures especially if you are just starting up will make you a Jack-Of-All-Trades but successful in none.
