So what can be said about starting out in business these days? It is a good and fair question don’t you think? I am sure you would find 100’s of people (all of who’s opinion, no doubt is the correct one) that will tell you that now is the wrong time, haven’t you seen the news about the economy? Haven’t you heard that XYZ Company has gone into liquidation?
It’s funny, I was told a lot of the same things when there wasn’t any “Financial Crisis” going on. And you know what; the same pit falls and dangers are there no matter what the financial climate. It is how you mitigate those risks that will determine how you come out the other side. Some people even say that you should ‘plan to fail’ nine out of ten times when in business. That does not mean that you are going to fail nine out of ten times, simply that you must put provisions in place. This is something that I failed to do myself and learned the hard way what people actually meant when they said that. You might hit one out of the park on your first attempt, and if that is the case then well done. I congratulate you; you are part of a small minority. The biggest thing that sets successes apart from failures is the fact that successes keep getting back up and moving forward. Donald Trump has this to say about it;
“What separates the winners from the losers is how a person reacts to each new twist of fate.”
Even successful people have their difficult times and ventures, and not every venture they enter into produces stellar results. They don’t let that stop them attempting something new.
So again, is it a good time to start in Business? The answer is most certainly yes! If we take a leaf out of the richest man in the world’s book, Warren Buffet we can learn a whole lot, this is was Mr. Buffet says about the economy, and this works in any financial climate;
“You want to be greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy”
That is not to be taken out of context, Mr Buffet is not talking about greed as in the deadly sin, he merely uses that terminology to highlight that when the masses are saying that it’s not a good time (to do anything), it really probably is, and when they are saying it’s a great time, it probably isn’t!
The biggest thing that I have seen while talking to people (certainly when they are searching online) is that they want to make decent money, yet they are unwilling to invest in themselves or anything for that matter. They think that they can just simply tap into something and have money gush like a tap without any sort of investment, time or money. Unfortunately it does not work in that way. You are going to have to make some investment, that being said, it does not have to be huge amounts of money and you can certainly get yourself established online and making a decent wage for a fraction of what it would cost you to set up a traditional business.
Here are the Key things that give online business the advantage to offline;
An ever increasing Audience.
The ability to do business word wide (with ease).
Work from ANYWHERE in the world.
You owe it to yourself to look at starting your own online business; it’s cheap and can be very profitable. SABUNG AYAM
