5 Rules For New Entrepreneurs - Practical Tips For Starting Right

Date Published: June 15, 2022

It's an exciting time to be an entrepreneur—technology has leveled the playing field and sparked an entrepreneurial revolution in the last decade. As an entrepreneur, you now have more information at your fingertips, allowing you to make quick and informed decisions. You have an advantage over large corporations because you are lighter, more adaptable, and quicker on your feet. You can more quickly target new markets and pivot on a dime.


But being a successful entrepreneur requires that you look at the big picture and follow a plan through from beginning to end. Here are some practical guidelines that can help you when beginning your own enterprise:


1. Don’t Quit Your Day Job Just Yet

Consider starting your business part-time, especially if it’s online, while you’re working and have a steady income. It usually takes six months to a year to get a business going and you don’t want your ability to make your house payment to hinge upon your company being an overnight success. Start with what you can manage, financially and time-wise, and scale up as your business grows.

Personally, this is what I did. In the morning I work as an IT Analyst in a Regional IT Head Quarters of a Pharma Distribution Company. After work, I do my Direct Selling Business as a Sales Director in Mary Kay where I do one-on-one or group product presentations through conducting skin care classes; I do trainings, motivational talks and networking. After 7 years f doing this, I, together with 2 business partners founded an IT Software Consulting business. For 3 years, I was doing 3 things!

Was it hard? Oh yes, my social and personal life were out of priority. Was it worth it? Definitely! Now, I can share these experiences and knowledge with you freely!    


2. Find Your Niche

The days of general stores are over. Particularly online, consumers are looking for stores that specialize. You have to find a need—something a specific group of people want, but can’t get at the big chain stores—and fill it. You can’t compete with the big guys, so you have to find where the big guys aren’t and go into your niches.


3. Have an Online Presence

Even if you’re not planning to start an online retail business, consider that the internet can still play a valuable role in your company. Having an online presence eliminates the limitations of physical location and broadens your customer base by, literally, millions. It’s also a great tool for promoting yourself and letting people, even in your own area, know that you’re there, and what you’re doing.

4. Practice the Abundance Mindset 

There is always enough for everyone.

This is an important belief that every person in business should keep.When you strongly believe that there are enough resources for everyone, you automatically trust that you can access what you need when you need it. This mindset can make you run your business with much confidence.

5. Never ever Quit

Entrepreneurship requires creativity, energy, and the determination to keep going even when things go wrong. Few people realize that before creating Microsoft 3.0, Bill Gates created Microsoft 1.0 and 2.0, both of which failed miserably—but he persisted. And it is this determination and refusal to give up that will distinguish successful entrepreneurs from those who fail. To get past the 'No' or the trouble, arm yourself with optimism. Failure isn't a bad thing—just don't make the same mistake twice!

Also, always have a Plan B, C, or even D. Your plan may not always go as planned, but if you are flexible and adaptable enough, you will have something to fall back on if your initial plan fails.

Here's to wishing you a good and abundant life!
