HOW TO BECOME A FIRST CLASS ENTREPRENEUR
An entrepreneur is described as that individual who engages in a business for the purpose of making profit. Also, an entrepreneur can describe as that individual who have decided to take control of his or her future and become self employed whether by creating his or her own unique business or working as a member of a team.
What qualities do someone has to posses before he or she can regarded as an entrepreneur? Being an entrepreneur is more than just starting a business. It is about having attitude and the drive to succeed in business. All successful entrepreneurs have a similar way of thinking and posses key several personal qualities that make them so successful in business. The likes of Jimoh Ibrahim and Richard Brandon have inner drive to succeed and grow their business rather than having a Harvard Business degree.
All successful entrepreneurs have the following qualities:
First, they have inner drive to succeed. They see the bigger picture and are often very ambitious. Entrepreneurs set massive goals for themselves and stay committed to achieving them regardless of the obstacles they see on their way.
Second, they have strong belief in themselves. Every successful entrepreneur have a healthy opinion of themselves and often have a strong and assertive personality. They are focused and determined to achieve their goals and believe completely in their ability to achieve them. Their self optimism can often been seen by others as flamboyance or arrogance but entrepreneurs are just too focus to spend too much time thinking about un-constructive criticism.
Third, they search for new ideas and innovation. All entrepreneurs have passionate desire to do things better and to improve their products or service. They are constantly looking for new ways to improve.
Fourth, they are competitive by nature. Successful entrepreneurs thrive on competition. The only way to reach their goals and live up to their self-imposed high standard is to compete with other successful businesses.
And lastly, they are highly motivated and energetic. Entrepreneurs are always on the move, full of energy and highly motivated. They are driven to succeed and have abundance of self-motivation.
HOW TO GENERATE ENTREPRENEURAL IDEAS
(1). By reading and studying as many things as possible. You need to investigate specific information of what you are going to sell. For example, if you want to be involved in real estate business, you have to study everything about your subject matter.
(2). By thinking. After you have done your study, think hard about the solution to that specific problem. Then stop and relax. Let your subconscious mind works for you. The idea or solution will come to you at much unexpected moment. For me, idea or solution comes to me when sleeping.
(3). Refine your raw idea until it is up to your satisfaction. You can always do your own research on the raw idea by asking questions to target market to test the feasibility of the idea and how to improve the idea further.
HOW TO GET CAPITAL WITHOUT COLLATERAL
As a matter of fact, the subject of finance is very serious most especially in Nigeria where more meant for small and medium enterprises are been kept in the vaults of bank untouched and unused for the purpose they are meant for. It is on this note, I will share three secrets with you to get loan without collateral.
(1). FAMILY AND FRIENDS: It is very easier for family member sand friends to give you 50 naira compare to when you ask for 1000 naira. All you have to do is draw up a list of those people you know can part with little amount of money without any side comments and ask them for little favour.
(2). TRADE YOUR GIFT: Your God given talent is your best way to get loan without collateral. Every person has a divine talent from God. Start to translate that gift to making money. For instance, if you know how to sing, why not sing in churches or birthday parties and collect a token of appreciation.
(3). DAILY CONTRIBUTIONS: This is a process you contribute money on daily basis in care of a trusted person who will in turn give the money back to you on demand. It can be your friend or relative but let it be a person who believes in your vision.
