Simple Keys to a REALLY Successful Business

If you do the following, you can be 100% sure that your business will be incredibly successful.

First of all, when structuring your business you have to have the mindset of providing the best value to people. If you are approaching the organization of you business with the mind set of making money, you are going to be sadly disappointed later on down the line.

The money will come later. The sure way to secure that money is by forgetting about it, and focusing on how you can provide the most value possible to your consumers.

Study your market, study your competitors, and outdo them. Don’t study them and try to imitate them so you can fit into the market place. You want to distinguish yourself. Find out what they’re doing, and then find the problems, and fix them. That’s value to your customers.

I cannot stress this enough. You don’t have to know everything, you just have to know something nobody else knows. If you’re going to seminars, or taking business classes, you can be sure that the info you’re getting is widely accessible.

Finding what nobody knows means studying the circumstances of your market, making observations, and then structuring aspects of your business based on that.

Don’t be so anxious to ask people for advice. Come up with ideas on your own. Take time out of your day to just sit, and think. It’s these ideas that will be most valuable because chances are they haven’t been spread halfway around the world already.

Again, try searching out the problems in the industry. Focus all of your time trying to find the solutions to these problems. If a big problem exists, you can be sure that the solution is unknown knowledge, or there wouldn’t be a problem. Be the person to solve that problem, and your company will be off to a great start.

The most important thing to remember when starting your own company is be flexible, meaning be open to different opportunities or ideas that may emerge.

Nowadays, the most flexible resource we have is the internet. Be open to integrating your business with it, because it is a tool that can give your business instant flexibility.

Keep these things in mind when starting your business and you can be assured that you will have a successful future. The only other advice I can give is, be assured that you will have a successful future.

2010, and Still Very Much in the Dark

It’s not rare to hear middle-aged people go on about the technology we have now; the cell phones, and the video games, and everybody’s busy lives. But for all the talk about how advanced we are and how everything’s getting so uncontrollably complicated, there’s not enough talk about the truth of the situation.

The fact is, as a country, America is pretty advanced, but in the age of the world wide web, there’s a lot of that web still missing from the picture. The internet has the ability to transform commerce, transform communication, and transcend boundaries. It could be argued that it’s the most important thing missing throughout the world.

The internet has means of education, means of trade, and opportunity. Food and water sent from a rich country can save a life, but it cannot sustain it.

For all the talk about how advanced we are, I think it’s time we start realizing that the rest of the world is still very far behind. When we think about “our” situation, we need to think about it from the perspective of the world as a community, because in reality, and even more so in the future, we are all connected.

I am undoubtedly a huge advocate for more innovation and more technology, but in these circumstances, I would readily support a stand still of all progress in developed countries, in order to catch under-developed countries up at least to America’s standards, which are certainly not the highest, but would still be great for the world.

This stand still would never happen, but I am hoping that with the coming technologies to emerge out of the developed countries in the years to come, a solution to this problem can be found that brings, if nothing else, widespread internet access and computers to the world.

America, Europe, and parts of Asia may be relatively advanced, but in many parts of the world, there’s still not much difference between now and 200 years ago. We tend to make a huge separation between us and ancient people, or even the victorians, but as a whole, we are not much different, and as a world community, we still have a long ways to go.
