I have always wanted to be part of something that I will look back and acknowledge as mine. I always find pride in representing something that I have worked hard enough to refer to is as a successful part of my being. We always seem to worry a lot about what tomorrow should be or how much we should utilize now to make tomorrow admirable. But yet, that aspect alone pushes us in making rush moves in building our empires. We all have the freedom to dream, to place our ambitions and visions as our number one priorities in order to make our lives seem normal or maybe give it direction without considering what disappointments or accomplishments we have met.
Empires may be big maybe in comparison to the universe. For instance, you would want to own a group of companies and in the same way, a supermarket would be how far my dreams would reach its maximum. How to build an empire would definitely be influenced by how much you put in all that you passionately wish to achieve.
Honestly, pride is found in effort and dedication mostly. I have a friend; he is so passionate about photography that he would quit school to make that dream a reality. Well, he did quit school to pursue photography. Then, he did not even afford a camera that only cost a bit more than his financial status would accomplish. Let us say he would have taken a year and half to save up that amount of money.
Whenever he would seek opportunity without any experience of school graduation papers he would leave disappointed. He would only talk of his passion even having no samples of photos he had taken, something they really needed to see. One time he visited a company for an interview without being shortlisted. Fortunately, he got the chance to get into the interviewees. In the process of pleading to his supposed employer, he happened to spot a number of frames of pictures that the interviewee had displayed his office.
To cut the long story short all my friends had to do was to mesmerize his supposed employer on the angle, occasion, background, and grounds the photographs in that office had been taken. You see that passion had expanded his knowledge of photography. It was not just about taking photos of him. You should be willing to go that extra mile to make that dream blossom, that passion drive you. I am not sure I should disclose how big of an empire my friend has built because he definitely got that job as an intern making the strides higher in that firm.
Business opportunities are always going to be there. Success does not really belong to anyone. I am completely convinced that all these valuable aspects can be grabbed and sustained. The foundation of a successful business empire has to be based on courtesy, respect, and motivation. You are going to require staff, people who will assist you when work is overwhelmingly too much. You will need to treat them better than you expect this is because good is replaced with good. Furthermore, respect is earned not given. Your success may be through the help of others but in the same way, you would prefer to do it alone. They say a lonely walk is the toughest but it is that walk that makes you stronger. You are the one who will choose the easiest path to your success only then you will make it.
Wealth is not effortless. That will be a result of what you do, the dedication to your work schedule in your workspace. You will have to manage the funds. Has a mentality of you are the only one who has to get things done and if you sleep who will? We, humans, tend to take advantage of the fact that we learn via apprenticeship hence tend to be copycat’s.
Your circle of colleagues and you are not the same. The financial department has to be represented by the people you trust to avoid losing the capital. The capital happens to be the backbone of the business. Meaning it should be the part that requires your permanent attention. Work within a budget to prevent the activities of expenditure going higher than the income. Once you manage your wealth in your business then your empire will be stable. You will grow in your business and still maintain the glow in your face for the work you will have done toward its success.
Life is like a puzzle, we juggle not knowing the destination. Actually is there a destination? I don’t think so; it is more of a journey with numerous experiences. If you ask me I live life the way it comes, if it is Monday I deal with Monday not thinking of what if’s. Concerning me, I stopped living my life as a plan B meaning giving people the driver’s seat in my life. Believe me, it is very frustrating.
How unexciting if you are only a follower in life, not making your own choices. Isn’t that the life some of us live? When we are young it is allowed but now; come on how boring! Be the only custodian of your life. Live happy to enjoy life as it lasts by that you will fulfill your purpose in life with ease. Be selfish a bit, it won’t hurt. Keep your eyes open to identify where the gaps are. By this, you will be building a better version of yourself.
A business is like a toddler. Its name gives it a character the same case for a business. If given a name that fully describes it acquires a sense of belonging in the market. Giving it a captivating name is a plus. Your biggest agenda should be in welcoming investors, customers, foreigners anyone who is willing to move your empire to a level that is admirable. You will need to have that marketing tongue in all your conversations.
Have that welcoming gesture, the will to listen to every idea that gets presented to you. An open mind is a key tool. It will allow you to give chances to investors mostly. Try as much not to fall back or find yourself deriving from the original idea. Have that singular focus approach. Advertise your brand, get on social media get connected as much as you can. Success may come your way through someone you least expect. Take your time and hire employees at a slow rate since you are a new bee in the market. Make the strategy of the crawl, walk then run your strategy.
When it comes to building your own business, be keen on competition trends. It is important to know about the prevailing trends in the business by competitor firms. Pay attention to detail and do the small things your competitors are ignoring. It is also imperative to identify gaps in the market. Market gaps aid in selling through filling the void left by unfulfilled human wants.
Also, utilize a customer management system meaning keep a good relationship with the customer and meet all their needs hence customer satisfaction. Remember, the customer is the king and he or she is always right. Always take care of your budget. If your choice is to build a business keep your eyes on your point of focus and build your brand maybe take part in sponsoring big events, this way creating awareness to the public. Growth is a continuous process.
You don’t have to get paranoid every time your businesses don’t go the upper way or every time you tend to stagnate. Having included the majority of what we need to keep in mind while steering our empire away from the verge of failing, we need to recognize that we appreciate our successes.
As I near my conclusion, nothing comes easy. Building a business to be big enough to be recognized to be an empire takes tedious and a heartfelt passion for what you do. Challenges, inevitable. Opportunities, scarce. The most important thing is to never let go of that motivation and drive to grow your dreams. We tend to ignore the aspect of life that we call dreaming. Maybe by being discouraged by those fellow business persons that have already accomplished that we aspire to achieve.
Your idea will not match your business partner’s, you will always differ in matters of managing certain departments may be in adding and balancing staff with your board members and times on what flavor of coffee your assistant will bring to your office on certain mornings. You will have to manage your emotions when you are dealing with matters that refer to your business. Make that schedule that you know you will follow and match what you have achieved through the efforts and dedication of your soul and mind. Worry about today. What have I achieved on this day? What do I need to improve to make tomorrow a better day when tomorrow is here? Succeed and make the journey count.
