How To Be A Successful Businessman?
If you have dreamt of starting your own business but never had the opportunity to do so, well now is your chance. Don’t procrastinate. If you love it then just do it. I guess now you are thinking “boy it’s not as easy as you think”. Yeah no one said it’s going to be easy, but what I said was you can do it. There is nothing that’s impossible.
First and foremost sit down and do some quiet thinking on your own. What type of a business you want (I am guessing that you must be having at least a vague idea regarding what type of a business you want to start). It can be absolutely anything! (Well, not something that is deemed illegal by the laws of the land of course). Then think of the budget, acquisition of necessary funds, where, how, with whom etc. Chose to start it very small. You may need to invest some money on the initial stages to get it going so the smaller it is, the less you have to spend moneywise. You must also think of the practical dimension. What are the needs of the local community here if I am going to start my business here? Will there be a good market for it? Will I have a lot of competition and if so with whom? What are the marketing strategies of my competitors?
You must always have good contacts with other people especially other businessmen. If you go to a meeting or a get together r or even if you run down to the grocery store keep an eye out for people who can be a potential to your business. Your business does not end in your office building or work place. There are lot of places that do business cards printing Dubai for really cheap prices and you can get them done in a bulk (you never know how much you may need to give out). Getting it printed is a better way than having to scribble down your telephone number and business address. There are good opportunities surrounding you everywhere and every moment. The only thing you need to do is be observant and ready to seize the moment.
The first couple of years are going to be a bit rocky. Don’t expect to be a millionaire overnight. You just have to hold tight and make it work. Keep your day job (unless you have to quit it absolutely for the business) or find good investors because you may need another source of income to finance you in those rocky starting periods. Slowly once you expand then you can be the master of your own ship. But don’t be too hasty to expand as well. You must make rational decisions regarding the viability and if not the whole thing can come crashing down.
