Essential Factors for Success in Business


Visitors: 332

Business is not only about money. Money may be the lubricant which makes all parts function with ease, but there are other factors also which spell S-U-C-C-E-S-S for business.

1. Knowledge - Knowledge of what you are doing is essential for every business. Even if your neighbor is making millions manufacturing a certain product, you cannot follow his footsteps if you do not have the knowledge of manufacturing that product.

Even if you pay an expert to get the job done, you need to have some knowledge to be able to supervise your employee's work.

2. Experience - ‘Knowledge is a lifeless body; Experience is it's soul. ’ Without experience, knowledge is useless. Take this example of Swimming. You can read the best books available and gain a lot of knowledge on Swimming and still not be able to swim! The same holds true for business.

When I learnt HTML, it seemed the easiest thing to design websites because I had all the knowledge required. But my ego got a nice brush-off when I designed my first website. After that, it was a race for gaining experience with every website that I designed. And believe me, no book has ever taught me what my own experiences have taught!

3. Team Selection - Together Each Achieves Most! A good team makes all the difference. Each one in your team should be an expert in his work. DO NOT hire a person who does not know his job well, simply because he is cheaper. Do not compromise on the quality of your work.

Small business owners may find it difficult to hire a specialized personnel. The least you can do is to make sure the person has some knowledge of what you expect him to do.

4. Attitude towards Wealth Creation - Wealth Creation and Profit Making are the objectives of doing any business activity. Nevertheless, they should not be given more attention than your business activity itself.

Get this clear. If you do your job sincerely, you will make profit. On the contrary, if you focus only on wealth creation and profit making, your work will suffer, you might look for shortcuts and ‘get-rich-quick’ schemes and you will neither make profits, nor create wealth.

Work hard. Put your soul into what you do. Just take good care of your work and your work will take care of your profits and wealth.
