Why I Should Go In To Business
Rohit Kochgaway was very upset with his boss for his rebuking him today in office. He was very upset with his job. When he reached home in evening his wife got the penalty for asking to go out in form of bad mood. After one hour at home, he exploded the bomb.
He is quitting the cozy job and wants to go on his own.
Is that the right reason to start a long whirl winding journey of business? Rohit was upset with the present job. Does it make him knowledgeable enough to go alone? Is not it running from present only?
If you want to be in your own business because you are 'sick and tired of being told what to do', because you want more 'freedom', or because you are unappreciated or undervalued, forget it. These are not reasons for starting a business; these are reasons for running away from your present job. If you want to 'make a lot of money', that's probably not a great reasons either. It is a fine and worthwhile goal, but if it is your prime motivation it is not going to be enough to get through the lean years.
Before starting our company I was a software engineer by profession and I loved to program and design the software packages. But I certainly do not wanted to live like a programmer battling out there with the machine codes and following someone else order even to why I should design the very codes of my works. I also see a big opportunity coming on my way in my industry. I jumped out and exclaimed "That's enough, I want to enjoy myself working for myself and enjoy it too. And also wanted to give it a try."
Enjoy. I couldn't afford not to give this new venture a try.
This, I believe, is at least part of the motivation of most people who successfully starta new business: a feeling that if they never tried they would always regret it. It is what gives you themomentum to get out the front door, to cut the corporate umbilical cord, and what makes it possible. To keep going, even when everything else makes you feel like turning back. Starting a business is afinancial and professional commitment. But even more, it is an emotional one.
I have a friend who, five years ago, started what has become a very successful apparel manufacturingFirm. He told me recently that if he had known then what the first two years were going to be like, he would have never gone through it.
We never had it that rough, but I could relate to what he was saying. There are so many moments in starting a new business when the negatives outweigh the positives that any feelings of satisfactionare very small compensation. There are times when it is the emotion alone that keeps you going.

A Startup Never Closes
When it comes to a startup, the luxuries shared with established companies are few and far between. Chief among them is the luxury to close at the end of the day. Big companies have the benefits of capital, customers and receivables. Startups, on the other hand, have jack squat. They need to work twice as hard to make half as much, and even then they're not working nearly enough.
Entrepreneurship: Insight and Closer Look At The Entrepreneur
Life as an entrepreneur is the American Dream. To be able to be your own boss, own your own business, never report to anyone else, work from home, make unlimited earnings and income potential, etc. Owning your own business most definitely has its perks. But on the other hand, there are the downsides. However, being an entrepreneur myself I view these only as challenges. The will to work hard, fanatically, solitary isolation, being slammed of your ideas from other people, the uncertainty of making the business grow to fruitation are all quite scary considerations. But it's best to know that it is out there, that it is the negative side. To be willing to gamble your money, other peoples money, to invest a massive amount of time and energy into your business is something that should be considered.

Your Company Needs A Mission Statement; Make It Count
Does anyone remember that book "Built to Last" done y the Stanford class and professor? Well change that to "Built to Merge." My grandfather was personal friends with Bill Hewlett and David Packard and I bet they would not have wanted this merger with Compaq either. It is interesting that one night about 3 in the morning I was reading that book and decided to change or mission statement and focus on the things that meant the most to our team and our customers. I stayed up all night writing that mission statement to make sure it was in line with the books comments on what it takes to make and keep a company great. This was about 5 years ago when "Built to Last" was the talk of the business world and it was written up in many of the newspapers, and magazines I was reading at the time. WSJ, Financial Times, Investors Business Daily, The Economist, NY Times, etc. Even hit the best sellers list for a while, not bad for a business non-fiction book by a professor.

Increasing Business BIGTIME with a Successful Referral System
What I've discovered from most of my small business clients is that most would prefer to build their business through referrals rather than through direct mail, advertising in newspapers, radio, TV. However, most leave the referrals to a somewhat chaotic, unplanned approach. When they have a repeatable system of going after referrals their business growth suddenly explodes.
