It is not difficult to find examples of known people who, in a time of need or opportunity, decided to open their own business. But many of these people who join this new journey end up not moving forward and closing their business.
To prevent this from happening, the book "The Complete Handbook of Entrepreneurship" presents the importance of purpose and how it can contribute to the success of your company.
There are 3 questions that need to be answered in the initial phase of the venture:
By observing these questions, one can perceive a common term: the "why". And it is this term that will guide the development of the idea.
The goal of entrepreneurship should not be just financial gain. While generating revenue is very important, doing what you love will motivate and inspire you, help you extract the best from your business, guide you toward success, work with pleasure and harmony, and still have some free time to spend with your family and rest.
No one likes to work with worry, anguish, and anxiety. If you are working like this, you need to do something to change.
As presented by Alexandre Sita and Elissandro Sabóia, happiness should not start only on Friday at 6: 00 pm, it needs to be present in the day to day of your company.
Know all the skills and knowledge you have. Many businesses are based on guessing. For example, many people think they know how to make pizza, but when it comes to putting it into practice, it's not as they imagined, creating problems for the business.
You need to be aligned with your purpose, but that alone is not enough.
According to the book "The Complete Handbook of Entrepreneurship", it is essential that the public develop an interest in it; so consider whether your idea is innovative, whether it will be valued, and whether it will solve someone's problem, as successful ideas need to solve problems.
You should make a personal reflection about whether or not the time is right for your life, understand how the management of this new company will affect you and the people around you.
Also, analyze your financial condition and whether you will have the necessary investment to get your idea started.
Successful ventures require ideas that will spark the interest of consumers.
Thus, the organizers of the book "The Complete Handbook of Entrepreneurship", Alexandre Sita and Elissandro Sabóia, show 5 key points of support that are the basis for developing brilliant ideas, optimizing the whole process of conception and validation of ideas.
Good ideas must conquer people. For this, it is essential that you know your audience and their preferences, motivations, needs, and pains. Collecting and analyzing information will allow you to have more knowledge about consumers and how to best impact them.
Be curious, search, ask. Curiosity is one of the best fuels to acquire new knowledge.
We all have skills that can be improved and that will assist in strengthening us as entrepreneurs.
Work on your weaknesses, but develop your strengths to the maximum, showing that you have a well-developed skill, using it in the process of improving your idea.
With the knowledge acquired and the skills developed, it is necessary to apply all this with the right attitude.
Assume an innovative attitude that will create a connection with the public and differentiate you from your competitors.
The market and public preferences change very fast. Therefore, validation is extremely important.
You must validate your idea in 2 moments: pre and post-launch. In pre-launch this is done by Minimum Viable Product (MVP), where you will analyze if your product is satisfying the public and if the proposed solution is being effective. This way, it will be possible to know what needs to be improved quickly and easily.
In the post-launch, a system of feedback must be established to carry out a constant follow-up on the product.
Finally, you need to engage the customer with your brand. Engagement means that the customer sees value in the product and the company.
An engaged consumer will not only be loyal to your company, but will be a brand promoter, attracting new customers.
The challenges of entrepreneurship are greater than we can imagine. There will always be unforeseen problems and how you will handle all the challenges is very important for you to overcome them.
Knowing your personality is very important to know where you can improve and increase your chances of success.
