There could be many definitions of the success based on the person’s ideology and mindset. Some believe that having a Rolls Royce parked outside their mansion is a success and some believe that having a good night sleep beside your loved one is a success. Whatever the definition of success is for you, you could find all sorts of success in entrepreneurship. But you have to be a successful entrepreneur first to get all of that.
You could see all the Ted talks of successful entrepreneurs on the internet for the inspiration or from the lessons to be like them. But neither Mark Zuckerberg nor Jack Ma will tell you their recipe for success in such types of public sittings. You need to have personal mentorship who would be with your side by side throughout the time of building up your startup. However, not everyone is lucky enough to have such people beside them in the desperate times. Even I know some of the people who just failed in their startup because they had more doubters besides him than the appreciators. That is why being an entrepreneur myself; I am writing this blog to make my reader entrepreneur know that they are not alone out there and there are people like me who are ready to give all sorts of help to those who deserves it.
In the next lines, I am going to tell you some of the things that you should stop to become a successful entrepreneur.
Do what you love:
This is the basic mantra of all the startups and the lives of all entrepreneurs. You have to love your work in order to make it possible. You should have firm believe in yourself and on your idea and should not allow someone else to shake it. Once you make your love your work, you will build a romance with your job. Start a never-ending romance with your startup and the doors of success will always be open for you.
Do everything seriously:
It is true that the times will come when you will get bored of everything and decide to do old and worn out 9 to 5 job because your startup is not doing those things which you were expecting. This is the point where you will lose all of your focus and motivation and start showing non-serious attitude to your dream. This time will come, and you have to be prepared for it. I have been with many entrepreneurs mentors, and they all believe that only the one who will pass this period without losing his focus and motivation and shows complete seriousness towards his idea can achieve what he want to get. The people at this point are just a push of faith away in transforming from struggling entrepreneurs to successful entrepreneurs.
Building your own startup is a big ask, and without proper planning, you could never be successful in it. Planning is not only a must thing to do but also a habit that every entrepreneur should have. Planning not only helps you to analyze your business but also help you to oversee all the data and research numerous time to create a plan for it which also helps you to keep remembering your goal. A business plan is a rehearsal of achieving your goal but on the paper. It draws a map from A to Z that helps you to keep your team directed towards a single path.
Manage your Money:
The cash flow is the most important aspect for every entrepreneur. You need money to buy inventory, outsourcing services, promotion and marketing of your business, repair tools and pay yourself and your team to keep everyone motivated. That is why it is important to manage your money wisely. There are two things you can do to manage your money or investment. First, build a proper system to manage the money coming from the clients in return for your initial services which can also be called as income to some extent. Second, the money which you are spending on your work things like wages, inventory and supplies that can also be called as an expense.
Build a team:
With the time if luck remains with you, your business will grow and you cannot wear the same numbers of hats all the time. You have to release some responsibilities from your head and have to hire people or build a team that will help you to take your business further.
People spend decades to build their business, and if you are in a mood of quitting just after a year, then you should revisit your goals and dreams because those were the sources that gave you motivation then and can also give you the same motivation now.
