Starting from scratch
If you are not yet sure of what your business should be, and what you should focus on, check out our "12 Business Ideas for New Entrepreneurs article" where we give tons of business ideas that can help you decide on what your path should be.
But if you already have an idea of what you want to do, before you go any further, there are a few things you need in order to set yourself up to have a profitable business that actually makes you money:
- A good, useful product/service that solves an issue others have, or makes it more fun and entertaining.
- Love/Passion for the business or half-passion (which we'll explain later on in the article)
- Some free time (2-5hrs a day would be ideal as a start)
Without all of those factors combined, your chance of success is lower than 0.01%.
Most businesses today fail, and that's the hard reality of the game, and if you don't have a good product, time, passion, and patience, you're chances of success become extremely slim, and you stand at a huge disadvantage versus your competition.
So focusing on getting those factors in line before anything else is crucial for the success of your business.
