So, let's recap. Never have the chances for setting up and running your own successful business been better than they are today:
- While traditional industries like manufacturing are shrinking, new
industries are growing — especially the «information industries».
- You can use the internet to find your customers and business partners worldwide.
- Your customers and partners can find you on the internet.
- You can use the internet to build a strong relationship with your
customers especially via email.
- You can use the internet to market your products and services.
- You can use the internet to acquire all the information, training and
qualifications you need for your business.
- You can set up a business with a very small marketing budget,
something almost impossible in the «real world».
You can certainly list even more reasons why it is possible for anybody with a computer and access to the Internet to establish their own business. At the same time the reality is that only a very small percentage of people who do have a computer and access to the Internet, establish and run their own business. Why is this? The answer is very simple. Most people anywhere in the world, spend too much time thinking about things they do not want, instead of thinking about things they do want. As a result there are only a few people who have their own company and they usually earn more money than somebody with a regular job.
Owners of comapines usually have more personal and financial freedom than people with regular jobs. But what exactly do you need in order to own a company? Money? A University degree? The «right» friends? Well, maybe some of these things can help you with your business but then they are not essential and are no guarantee of success. We have analysed a number of successful online business people and here is a list of important characteristics all of them possessed.
We know that the following qualities are essential for success as a businessperson so you should take the time to go through them and check whether or not you have them. All the information about how to set up a website, how to run an email newsletter, how to get a high ranking at Google, how to generate huge traffic to your website etc. will be worth nothing if you don't have most of the following skills and qualities.
