There are plenty literary content and people who’ll tell you how to start a business. Many think you need to have a grand plan for your venture, but there’s no one formula for starting and running your own show successfully.
POINTERS OF REAL-LIFE EXPERIENCES
1. Market Research is optional
• It’s a good idea to do some market research
• But spending too long on it can hamper progress
• It’s a good idea to do what you think works for you and it requires none other than common sense
• Research in whatever form will take time; use this time wisely
• If you understand your market the market research needed can be minimized.
• Ponder: “are you spending more time in your business than on it”
2. You don’t have to suit up
• It take s guts to run a business
• Sometimes it’ good not to know what may happen next
• Even through planning, you often cannot what will be.
“a high way needs to go through the rubble before becoming a smooth transport system.
• While it’s good to be poised and confident in public, it’s ok to fumble a little to have a short mental block when someone asks you something.
• People will be more comfortable with someone who is down to earth and honest.
• Your integrity is more important how you look or speak
3. There’s be ups and downs
• Most of us know that well’ have good and bad days.
• The issue isn’t about having no sales, but how you cope with it.
• Don’t forget the people around you.
• It’s important to maintain relationship with family and friends
• It’s not always about selling if you don’t have a life outside your business, it can be a very lonely ride.
While you can’t control the external forces, persistence, dedication and passion may just get you through.
