3 THINGS EVERY BUSINESS AND INVESTMENT ROOKIE MUST STEAL FROM JACK MA
I’ve wondered, wondered and wondered again.
Why doesn’t a market for money- printing machines exist? Had it existed, sourcing finance to acquire it would have been all the hard work required.
As in, you just secure a machine, and prrrrrrrr, you start printing all the money you need. Then who cares about businesses and investments when all the money needed can be easily printed in a corner of your room? Sounds good, right?
But my bubbles keep bursting, reality of life keeps catching up with me. Blank is all I keep drawing.
Fact remains that, securing unrestricted access to financial resources is imperative for you to catch up with the world. Heartbreaking, ain’t it?
Like an age keeps increasing, the business world keeps getting rookies at every dawn of a new day. The need for enlightenment grows as the population of rookies grows in the business ghetto.
Are you a rookie in the business ghetto? Rob these three things off Jack Ma.
1. PROFFER SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS
I once saw a man set up a mattress selling business in an area with only offices and companies. The business folded up in matter of months.
As in, who the hell has need for mattresses and pillows in an office/ company?
It’s fact that the man has a business, but the business proffers no solution to the challenges of his business location. He could have set up businesses like: drinks and wines store, restaurant/ eatery and other businesses needed in the area.
Fact remains that, you’re not needed where life is all good. A prospering society has no use of you.
Find a struggling society and proffer solution to one of her challenges with your business. People only purchase what they lack.
Have you ever witnessed the burning flames of a promising business burn out in weeks or months and you wondered what happened?
It’s because there is no demand for the services the business provides in its location.
A society where the larger percentage of the population are car and vehicle owners has little or no need for a transportation business.
Dwell well on how to proffer solutions to problems of a society.
2. KEEP COMPANY OF BRILLIANT LIKE- MINDS AND TALENTS
Accomplishing a feat is easier in company of brilliant like- minds and talents.
Build up to success in businesses and investments does not necessarily require you to be the most brilliant individual, it only requires you to work hand-in-hand with brilliant like- minds and talents.
Ever noticed that successful personalities never involve themselves with individuals at random?
Fact is that no successful man will show interest in you when you have nothing to offer at the table of ideas.
Filter the companies you keep, discard the tares, keep the wheats.
3. GO HARD IN FACE OF FAILURE
Business is not a bar of candy. Sweet all through.
No successful business personality got it right in a trial. The likes of Jack Ma, Bill Gates, Elon Musk and others didn’t get it right in business at once. They went through series of hurdles.
The flowing stream of your business will at a point be threatened by hurdles. Self- motivation is needed to go hard in face of such hurdles. Pick yourself up in the presence of failure.
The path of a business rookie is always ladened with hurdles.
This content is imbued to act as a guide- dog to rookies in the business ghetto. Success in business is guaranteed only to a goal- getter.
In business, learn lessons from failures, apply the lessons and you’ll overcome.
Remember! Big results require big ambitions.
