An entrepreneur is a person who has the ability to detect a problem, solve it through a product or service, execute that project and make it profitable/sustainable over time. Entrepreneurship means starting a long journey, which requires persevering and constant movement to make the dream or goal you want to reach reality. Below we will share a series of tips or recommendations that could be useful if you decide to undertake.
To start a business and execute a plan, it takes a lot of discipline to do the things we need to do (but don’t like to do them), discipline is also essential to keep going in those moments when we lack motivation. It is not just about starting the business and waiting for the results to arrive in a magical way, it is necessary to establish habits, routines, effort, constant work and of course, have a lot of discipline to be able to carry out all the activities that allow us to meet the objectives and established goals.
Target the right audience
It is important that before starting a project, we make a business plan where we have previously defined the target audience to which we want to address, we must know what their problems are and how we can solve them, once we are clear about that, we can be more effective and efficient in our actions to be able to connect with the said public.
Undertake projects that we are passionate about
It is essential that we are passionate about our project as this will provide us with the drive and motivation required to move forward in difficult moments of our endeavor, there are cases of people who undertake in areas that they are not passionate about (they only do it for profitability or income), the problem is that every business has good and bad moments, if we carry out a project that we are not passionate about, we will simply “abandon it” when we have a setback.
Have specific goals
It is about designing short and measurable objectives, which are as clear as possible, that allow monitoring from the beginning and being able to see and measure the results obtained in the short and medium term. It is critical that these goals are aligned with our values and are part of a larger goal.
Respect and humility
Being respectful and humble are qualities that every successful entrepreneur must have, each person has their own story and must travel their own path, there are different ways to reach the same goal, so we cannot think that our path is the “right one” and that others are “wrong” or following a wrong path, it is important to bear in mind that we do not know who will be able to help us later when we need it most. There will always be someone who is better than us in a specific area or who knows more about a certain topic, so it is important to have the humility to recognize our own deficiencies and ask for help from other people (who have already traveled the path we want to travel ) when we need it, for example, many entrepreneurs refuse to hire experts in certain areas or refuse to ask for help or have a mentor, believing that they already know all the answers, however, this will only delay the development and growth of their company or deal.
