Comments Off on 6 Mind Blowing Things That Makes A Mastermind Entrepreneur Stand Out From The Rest

In the entrepreneurship world there are only two types of entrepreneurs and they are the mastermind entrepreneurs and the amateur entrepreneurs.

Who is a mastermind entrepreneur? A mastermind entrepreneur is a person that knows why he or she is being called a mastermind entrepreneur, there are the ones that knows how to drive a complex scheme also they are the successful entrepreneurs in the entrepreneurship world.

Who is an amateur entrepreneur? An amateur entrepreneur is one who doesn’t know why they are called entrepreneur. They are the ones who does not know how to drive complex scheme also they are the ones who are not successful.

Now the question I’m going to ask you is, where do you belong? You as an entrepreneur must know where your level fits in because if you don’t know, you are just wasting your time in the entrepreneurship world.

An entrepreneur should know why they are in the game also they should always know what they need. Like they say “As you lay your bed, that’s how you lie on it” how do you choose to lay your bed, do you choose to lay it in a mastermind entrepreneur way or in an amateur entrepreneur way?

Things that make a mastermind entrepreneur stand out from an amateur entrepreneur are highlighted below:

They are ready to face challenges:
You might be wondering if a mastermind entrepreneur doesn’t face any challenges at all, yes they do but what makes them stand out is that they are always ready to face their challenges. They know the step to take in other to tackle their challenges; they see their challenges as success and not as defeat. But amateur entrepreneurs are always scared of challenges, they don’t know how to go about it, whenever they face any challenge they prefer to put on the spirit of failure, because they believe that they can’t overcome the spirit of challenges.

They take their business serious:
When it comes to the taking of business serious you will always find a mastermind entrepreneur there. A mastermind entrepreneur are always taking their business serious, they are ready to go to any length in other to make their business become successful. They don’t joke with the idea of taking their business as their second wife or husband simply because they know what they want and they know why they are in the game. But an amateur entrepreneur will never do that, they believe that they will succeed if they want to succeed and being successful is not by hard work. They just don’t want to get out of their comfort zone for once.

They aim high and set achievable goals:
No matter the condition they are, they are always aiming high and setting achievable goals, they don’t believe in impossibilities. They believe that nothing is impossible in this world. Nothing is impossible in this world, if you truly believe. Amateur entrepreneurs aim less and they don’t set an achievable goals, they just don’t have the believe that they can make things happen; I mean they don’t believe that things are possible.

They know how to manage risk:
Ability to manage risk is one of the factors that makes a mastermind entrepreneur become successful.A mastermind entrepreneur knows how to manage risk; they know what it means to take risk. While an amateur entrepreneur doesn’t know how to manage risk, they don’t even want to hear the world risk they are always looking for a way to skip the name called RISK.

They posses the skills:
Mastermind entrepreneurs posses the skills, they are not lame. They know the importance of possessing the skills. For an entrepreneur to be among the mastermind entrepreneurs, he or she must posses the skills, it’s only an amateur entrepreneur that don’t know the usefulness of the skills and why they should posses it. Skills like time management skill, creativity skill, leadership skill etc.

They are passionate:
Mastermind entrepreneurs are always passionate, they love what they do, and they go into a field that suits their interest that’s why they keep dwelling on the mountain top. Amateur entrepreneurs are the ones that are not passionate about what they are doing. They are just doing it due to imitation or just for the sake of doing it, which is not supposed to be.

Ten Useful Tips for Entrepreneurs While Creating Websites

Comments Off on Ten Useful Tips for Entrepreneurs While Creating Websites

Entrepreneur who has no much knowledge in the Website launching could fall into a trap in the hands of inexperienced, fraudulent, factitious Website developers.

This special article is just to create awareness amongst the Entrepreneurs and I can also say that this article is a dedication to them.

Our ancient culture teaches us that I quote “one should follow a Principle or go by the way the elders shown the way, because, they have inherited these values from generation-down-to- generation” I unquote. Or I can say from time immemorial.

Similarly in the cropping up of the desire of creating and launching of Website the Entrepreneurs must select a genuine, worthy, eco-friendly Website Developer.

I am cutting short this valued article or restrict to the barest minimum of offering ten valuable tips to the Entrepreneurs, for benefiting themselves in the selection of genuine Website Developers.

Tip No. 1: What is a Website, and why at all it should be created?

The answer is that through a World Wide Web (www) the Entrepreneur gets the benefit of throwing open to the public his Company’s profile and its obligation to the viewers who are really in need of their products that are Manufactured/Stocked and Traded. Hence there is a need to approach a reputed Website Developer for the purpose.

By this creation, mainly the manpower required for the propaganda and selling of the products worldwide is saved to a great extent. It minimizes the cost of products that are sold, saves the establishment expenditure, and saves energy in the verbal talk explaining about the specification, number of products manufactured, its quality, Lab/inspection facilities used etc..

Tip No. 2: How the Entrepreneur gets the viewer’s response?

The viewers of the Entrepreneur’s Website get first hand information about the products availability to suit their requirements, and instantly fill up the Dynamic Enquiry Form in the hosted Website itself and submit to the Entrepreneurs Website mail ID, which reaches within split second of the submission click. By this, the valuable time to be spent in the posting, faxing, telephoning the requirement of the products to the Entrepreneurs is saved. In the other way also, the Entrepreneur can contact the Viewer who has seen their Website, through their contact numbers, mail IDs etc. All is done by sitting in a cabin itself.

Tip No. 3: What else the Viewer sees from the Entrepreneurs website?

In addition to the knowing of the product’s availability, the viewer also sees the products image, its specification, the quality certificate awarded to the products manufactured/traded, Lab Tests and inspection report on the material etc., which gives a confident to the viewers to mail their requirement.

Tip No. 4: How to grow confidence to the viewers about the Entrepreneur’s products that are used globally?

Normally the human tendency is that if a reputed Company uses the products of the Entrepreneurs, the subsidiary Companies, and other valued customers also would follow the same, till a product gets it name in the global market. Hence e it is desirable to mention in the Website Page, the name of reputed Companies and the quantum of products sold etc., which will grow confidence to the viewer to purchase the Entrepreneurs products.

Tip No. 5: How to avoid the non-genuine, fraudulent, factitious Company Web Site Developers?

This is also an important point to be kept in the mind by an Entrepreneur. In this 21st Century, there are lot of non-genuine, fraudulent, fictitious Website

Developers emerge day-by-day, just to make money without proper planning. Neither they have any professional background nor do they have finance background, or any experienced technical personnel available with them. They one fine morning simply open a shop with a name in a small room posing themselves as a reputed Developers and keep some close friends to support them in canvassing of Entrepreneurs.

After collecting huge money towards advance payments give time for the Developing of the Entrepreneurs Website and suddenly vanish one day completely winding off their Website Development business. We read number of such instances in the leading Newspapers and also see through media channel. Entrepreneurs must know the genuine Website developer through Market Enquiry, or from reputed Agencies, before committing and placing order for the Website development. Once if an Entrepreneur gets involved with such fraudulent Website Developers, it will be very hard to come out of this trouble, and the real purpose is lost.

Tip. No. 6: How to assess the cost involved in the creation and Website Development?

Above all, the Entrepreneurs must exercise a strict control over their finance to be advanced to the Website Developers. This can be done by selecting few reputed Website Developers or Enquiry from known reliable sources, or by inviting quotations from a duly Registered Website Company. The price aspect involved can be analyzed through the competitive rate of quotations received, and further negotiations with the quotation, or else call each one of the Company who have quoted for a negotiation across the table and take a final decision before placing the order for the Website development. This is a safest way.

Tip No. 7: How to know the real benefit achieved or not after the creation, development and launching of the Entrepreneurs Website?

Every Entrepreneur wishes to achieve maximum benefit out of the Website launching. It is quite reasonable. That is why a popular and reputed Website Developer is required for this purpose. Simply because a Website Developer charges lower price, the Entrepreneur should not entrust to them the job of creation, development and launching of Website. Price is not only the criteria, the quality of construction of Website and the maximum benefit offered by them by way of giving additional pages, the long run usage etc., are also to be kept in view. I can assure the Entrepreneurs that a surely a good, reputed, professionally and financially having good background, a Registered Website Developer will be very beneficial in the long run.

Tip No. 8: How the Entrepreneur gets satisfaction with the Website Development?

Also the Entrepreneur must see that their Website is created, Developed and launched are as per their thought, necessity and worthiness, which brings satisfaction in the creation, developing and launching of their Website.

Tip No. 9: How to locate the Entrepreneurs Business place, the means of availability of transport etc?

This is also an important aspect the Entrepreneur must look into. We see now-a-days number of Industrial area is created so as to have a concentration of business in a secluded place which at times, goes outside the city limit. Hence It is better to have a location map, a rough sketch of the Entrepreneurs place duly marking the area with distance, the nearest availability of means of transport by Air, Rail, Road, Port etc., so that the viewers gets a choice of means of transport to suit their convenience.

Tip No. 10: How the Entrepreneurs expect the viewers’ response?

Last but not least, I would like to say that the Entrepreneurs would expect the response from the valued viewers in many ways – say by post, by telephone, by fax, by Mobile phone, by Landline phones or by personal visits etc. It should be the responsibility of the Receptionists/floor in-charge to immediately respond to the callers/visitors. For this purpose, a Page exclusively earmarked as CONTACT US; which will be uploaded in the last page of the Entrepreneurs Website. This page must reflect the Entrepreneurs full name, complete postal address with Pin Code, nearest landmark to their place, e-mail IDs, Contact numbers, Grievances Cell, purchase and sales department contact numbers with in-charges name. This will facilitate the viewers to easily transact their business with the concerned officials without wasting much time.

The most successful entrepreneurs are the people who were not afraid to convert their ideas into something tangible. Business ideas do sell, but tangible products sell better. If you are one of those people who have the greatest ideas in mind, it is time for you to enter the field of entrepreneurship.

In your introduction to this industry, you should know the basics of doing business. Here are a few to remember.

1. Entrepreneurs work with what they know. No matter how enticing a business opportunity seems, if you do not know anything about it, it is not for you. You have your ideas and your expertise; work with them to make yourself profitable. An opportunist does not make a true entrepreneur.

2. Entrepreneurs value quality. Business owners know that the only way they can satisfy their customers is through providing quality products and services. As an entrepreneur, this should be your top priority. Never sacrifice quality for a couple of dollars.

3. Entrepreneurs build relationships. Customer loyalty is another important aspect of entrepreneurship. You will only remain profitable if your customers stay with you. Build a harmonious relationship with them by asking for their needs, opinions and feedback and addressing all of these issues.

4. Entrepreneurs know how to innovate. Selling a product does not make you an entrepreneur; selling an innovative product makes you one. An original product cuts the competition; with this, an entrepreneur no longer needs to worry about his competitors for he is going to pioneer a certain niche.

First Time Entrepreneur Tips

Comments Off on First Time Entrepreneur Tips

It’s exciting and a little frightening to strike out on your own. But the entrepreneurial world is ripe with opportunity if you have a clear vision and the enthusiasm and knowledge to bring a new business into being. Fortunately, you can benefit from the insights of others who have traveled down the entrepreneurial path and found success of their own. Here are five tips that can help first-time entrepreneurs navigate through the entrepreneurial waters.

Have Passion for Your Venture

If you’re not doing something you’re passionate about, you’ll be less likely to stick with the long hours, late nights and weekends that most entrepreneurs devote to their growing business. An entrepreneurial venture is like childbirth – you’re giving birth to a new entity, and it has to be a labor of love. Don’t jump on board the next hot trend, and try to turn it into a business unless you love it enough to devote all of your waking hours to it.

Chart Your Course

Starting a new business without a business plan is like trying to navigate through a new city without a map. You have to know the direction you’re going and how you’re going to get there. Regardless of whether you’re getting outside funding or using your own money to fund your business, you need a well-written business plan to chart your course. A business plan is also important should you ever need business loans or want to take on additional investors. A business plan gives your growing business legitimacy and direction.

Don’t Try to Be Everything to Everybody

If you own a restaurant and are looking for an accountant, would you rather use the services of a general accounting firm or an accounting practice that specializes in the tax needs of restaurants? People prefer specialists to generalists, which is why your business needs a niche. Don’t try to be everything to everybody. Narrow your niche down and then niche it down some more. You give more value to your customer when you focus on one specific area, and they’ll perceive you to be the expert in what you do. It’s also easier to reach a narrow audience than it is to market to the masses. Know your niche, who your customers are and how to reach them.

Don’t Be Overly Optimistic

New entrepreneurs are an optimistic lot. They approach the marketplace with stars in their eyes and high expectations. Unfortunately, things usually take longer and cost more than planned, and lack of capital and cash flow is what brings most businesses down. When you estimate how much cash you need, multiply your projections by two, and when you project revenues during your first few years, cut those estimates by half. This will help you avoid a cash crunch that can destroy your business.

Be Hands On

Some entrepreneurs dream of giving birth to a business and then sitting back and enjoying the profits. Even if you have the resources to hire employees to run your business, it’s important to stay involved in all aspects of your growing business. No one has the enthusiasm and commitment to your business that you do, and you need to understand every aspect of it. There may be times you need to step in to keep your business operating. Make sure you’re able to do that.

The Bottom Line?

Entrepreneurship is an incredible journey but one with lots of twists and turns. Keep these first time entrepreneur tips in mind to help you stay on course and turn your business into the success you always dreamed it would be.
