The Flavor of Business – 10 Ways Ordinary People Can Start Money

by Vernice S Santos

Starting a business requires flexibility and perseverance. It also means taking the risk and rising above those who choose to play it safe with the tenacity to succeed. A simple smile can change impressions. A new fad may defy conventions.

These are the 10 Ways ordinary people can make money or start a business with little or no capital:

1. First, begin with your passion to start a business. Your passion fuels your production so you have to begin with something you love to do. Be indulgent about your products and remain focused. It is important to maintain the determination and enthusiasm to develop the business.

2. People first, profit second. Think of how your business can best serve others and your bottom line will take care of itself. Look out for trends and opportunities to capture a niche in the market.

3. Be creative. Be persuasive, give attention to details, be on the lookout for potential customers and attract them to buy your products.

4. Dare to ask yourself, “Why not?” Do not be afraid to pioneer something that has never been done before. Taking the risk is a part of a business. When you make mistake, admit it and learn from it but don’t let it debilitate you. Move on and become a stronger and wiser person because of it.

5. Be impeccable with your word. Do what you say you will do and people will recognize you for your integrity. First impressions last so always try to impress your prospective clients and partners on what you can best offer.

6. Make principle-based decisions. Use your values and principles as compass points in making business decisions. Develop rigid standards and stick to them because the quality of the business depends on it. Make a personal approach and have charisma in dealing with customers, listening to what they want, making faster decisions, remaining simple despite competing with multinationals, ensuring high quality products, treating employees as family.

7. Be aggressive in advertising your business. Your business purpose should be about making lives of others better because you exist. People will soon notice.

8. Strive for balance in your life. You are the heart and soul of your business so take care of yourself.

9. Pray for wisdom. As a beginner, people depend on you to make wise decisions that will affect their lives. This great responsibility is a privilege so make God your source of wisdom. Have a strong faith-filled approach to life. This will be your reservoir of strength and support.

10. Use your intelligence to make a difference! Develop relationships with the community; take an active part in socio-economic activities and business organizations. Inspire everyone in your organization to use their intelligence to make a difference for each other, for the organization and for the country.
