Stop thinking like a worker, start thinking like a business owner

If you want to do a business, you must develop your business skills. You must have a business mindset.

I hear people say they want to do a business. Sometime they don’t know what they are talking about. They don’t know how much money is required, how much effort need to put in. They jump in and try to swim. In the middle of the pool, they think they cannot cross to the other side, they turn back.

In order for you to become a business owner, you don’t only change your outer look. More importantly you must change your thinking. Business owner mindset is different. A worker will do their job and want their pay. What’s in it for me they said. They will be waiting for 5:00 o’clock so that they can go back.

But a business owner must serve people. The more they serve people the more income they will get. Sometime they work for free in the beginning. Depending on the type of business, some take 3 years and some may take few months only to break even. 

These few months or the few years that many people tried and failed. The worst case is, because they see this happening to their friend, they don’t even want to try. If you don’t try, you are 100% failed.

I’ve been involved in a few businesses before I join the financial services industry. For me, I found out, it is faster, simpler and more lucrative in this business.

You don’t have to keep inventory and staffs. You don’t need to have your office to be rented. You don’t pay the utilities. You don’t need to pay security guard to look after your office. You don’t even need to pay your business partners.

But your business is growing in quantum without office outlet. This is the invisible business. And it is BIG. So start thinking like a business owner.
