What is business success for you as an entrepreneur?

You have to determine what business success is to you.

You have started your own business, or are planning to do so. You have put a lot of energy into this new venture and have a passion and belief that your business will succeed. You decided to open this business, because you firmly believe that there is a need for the product or service you offer… But how do you REALLY know whether your business is – or will be – a success?

Success in a business can mean many different things. Let’s first look at the root of this term: Success means the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, fame or achieving the correct or desired result of an attempt. This perfectly addresses the basic need of every entrepreneur or small business owner, and that is to generate money to make a living and also grow their business in future for even greater gains. However, financial gain is the final result of the entire process and should not be the only measure of business success.

  1. What does business success mean to your personally?

That brings me to the point that achieving business success is the willingness to learn; it can be achieved be having a business mentor, on-the-job training and also helpful development programs such as Dream It! Plan It! Do It!
