Business is a very popular subject in the society and it’s the biggest source of employment and income for many people.
Most people know about business, but not many people know how to start a business and manage it successfully. No matter if you’re a student, a housewife or a retiree, you can always start and run your own business and earn money.
In this article I will share with you my thoughts about entrepreneurship and I will give you some tips on how to find your own business ideas and market validation.
Nowadays there are much more opportunities than ever before to start your own business and earn money. You can choose from a wide range of business ideas, from a small home based business to a big enterprise. There are many ways to make money online and offline. The internet has made it possible for anyone to start their own business and earn a living.
Let me tell you a couple of stories from my experience. I started my first business when I was 15, sold handmade key chains. As a teenager, I didn’t have any money, but I had a lot of free time after school and I wanted to earn some extra cash.
I didn’t want to get a job because I could spend my free time how I liked so I started making key chains while watching TV at home. It took me about an hour to make one keychain and I was able to sell them for $5 each so it wasn’t hard to make a few extra bucks a day. My parents helped me set up a website and a store where I could sell my key chains. And that’s how my first business started!
In my second year at college, I was looking for a topic for my final year project and I decided to come up with something related to business. So, I created an online guide for buying second hand cars in the UK. It was my first step into creating an online business. The idea came to me by accident, because I saw an ad on tv for selling second hand cars and I thought that the process would be complicated for most people. So I created an easy-to-follow explanation of how to buy second hand cars in the UK.
Since it was my final year project, I put all my effort into this guide. I studied the market, interviewed experts, got feedback from potential customers, wrote an ebook and published it on Clickbank Marketplace. It turned out to be my first successful project. It wasn’t easy, but with hard work and determination, you can achieve great things in life!
A couple of years later, when I was in university, I wanted to create something that would help people in their personal development. So I started writing self-help books that were based on ancient wisdom of ancient philosophers like Aristotle, Plato, Marcus Aurelius and others. These books became very popular among students around the world.
It was great to see so many people reading my books and telling me that my words helped them in their lives. This self-help book writing lead me to become an author of multiple successful books published worldwide under different pen names for different genres of books. It was one of the best decisions in my life!
