You do not have to be rich to run a successful business! Many large businesses start small with little funding. Additionally, start up companies usually are not funded by a single rich owner. Instead, companies begin by raising money from investors and taking out loans. If you wish you to one day become a successful business owner I recommend you first find what you are interested in. In the article Why Interest is Crucial to Your Success by the Duke Today Staff, they mention success increases as people do activities they both enjoy and find personally significant. This shows that being interested in your business is one of the most important parts of your career. Additionally, remember that anything worthwhile may be challenging. Make sure to stay positive and focus on your goals!
Michael recommends the following next steps:
- Find what interests you
- Research your industry
- Make a plan
- Work with your team to execute the plan
- Review your work and make improvements
