4 essential tricks for making your startup successful

There are many questions entrepreneurs might ask themselves and the most common one must be: what makes an entrepreneur really successful?

There’s probably no special ingredient when it comes to the secrets of being successful. However, every entrepreneur knows what will work for him/her and have their own opinion about what right or not for their business. It all boils down knowing yourself and knowing what works for you and your business in particular.


To start you on the right track, here are 4 simple tricks to build successfully your business:

1- Create a Business Map instead of a Business Plan

Changes tend to happen very rapidly nowadays and having merely a business plan does not exactly guarantee success. Given the possibility of new competitors and disruptive technology emerging out of nowhere, it has become vital to think out of the box.

This is why you should choose to have a business map instead of a business plan. In order to do so, you need first to drill deeper to understand the business you are involved in. After clearly identifying this, you need to analyze how it is useful. This will enable you to gain a thorough understanding of your customer base and the value they receive from your products or services.

This essentially means that, by choosing to have a business map, you will be able to frame your business in a way that enables you to see the opportunities as well as the threats that exist in the relevant industry.

2- Understand why it is a must for you

If your business model doesn’t excite you as much as it should now, you are bound to come across various issues at one point.

On the contrary, if you are highly passionate about the type of work you do and it gets you excited about waking up every morning that alone can help you get through the tough times in your business.

3- Be prepared to embrace change

Given how volatile this business landscape is, it is vital to be able to embrace change.

Rather than playing it safe by sticking to methods with proven results, you need to take risks that will open up a whole new world of opportunities. By being overly fixated on your business objectives, you end up unknowingly shutting out numerous possibilities.

Whenever you will realize that a certain method isn’t as effective as it should be, do not hesitate to try out something different. The important thing is to keep moving forward. Evolution would never happen if you do not leave your comfort zone.

4- Find Someone to Model

Whatever the business you are in, most probably there are other people who have already established a successful business in the same industry.

Whatever the business you are in, most probably there are other people who have already established a successful business in the same industry. There is a lot you could learn from their experience, such as which methods to follow and which methods to avoid.

Hence, never hesitate to reach out to your competitors and build a good business relationship. Show your admiration and express your interest in learning. Go to networking cocktails, meet with your peers and discuss your business with people from your industry, it will always bring something new to you, whether it is positive or not, it will definitely be constructive.
