Try to prove this statement, “Business is much easier to build than maintained and developed.” Statement I can about 3 year ago when I first started and ‘groping’ what business is right for me wake up. It was true, from my experience, it is easier to build a business rather than defend it. For example, when first I ever opened a business selling stickers, until eventually the market becomes saturated and closed. I also had to open a business website design express very quickly in a matter of days, also fail due to loss of spirit.
That experience made me learn a lot later. Until finally I could sustain my efforts in the field of training and consultancy services CerdasMulia Leadership and Training Center.While it is still small, but already quite well. I think there are 5 key business strengths for students who wish to develop their business. 5 key business strengths are 5 questions that should be answered during our business. What are the five key strengths of this business? Let’s read it again more!
WHAT’S YOUR REASON?
In each session of training in entrepreneurship, I often ask what causes a person to choose the way a businessman? Most said, “wants to create jobs”. Is it just to create jobs, or there is another, larger vision? If I may advice, choose a cause that is really strong and if the reason is not met then your life will get hurt. Seriously, this is called the power of destitute.
Some other reasons are more powerful that I encountered from successful people is that they have a high spiritual reasons. Another suggestion if I may, as students try to find reasons that are relevant to the world of student affairs. Whether to pay for college themselves, to give alms to the singers and orphans in campus canteens, and more.Explore your reason. Do not let us say, “I do not know for what my business.”
WHAT’S YOUR value proposition?
Once we have a good reason, it’s time to think about ‘value’ what can we change with the money and profits. Questions mandatory for grades / products / services that we offer is simple: if indeed what we offer is helpful, able to solve problems, and prevent people from fear? Find your hot stuff! Make sure that what we deliver value-added, is different from the others, there is a new first time, and best-in-class (solve problems, first, different, best).
THE BUSINESS IS FIT TO YOU?
Is the business you choose is right for you? Especially for those who are still students, in the middle of assignments and exams pile up, if the business can be used as a platform to ‘have fun’. The trick? Find what that is consistent with our interests. Find the appropriate passion, we have the skills and insights you can do well. Many people say that businesses do not need to know the details because all the employees worked.Hey, who built the business from scratch is self-employed, is not it? If indeed we ga comfortable with the computer field, why open a business in the computer field? If we like the field of cooking, with a little creativity we can open up a variety of tasty foods outlets. Starting as we like to eat. ^ ^
WHO IS YOUR CUSTOMER?
Who is the target consumer will we serve? At this time we are very dynamic and can not state that everyone has the same needs and desires. In short we can say that we can not satisfy everyone. Thus, the most prudent way is to select the specific customer segments and let the remaining segments are taken care of by others. To guide you determine your target customers, please read Determining Market Segments on Business Model Canvas.
HAVE YOU TRIED TO BUILD broader NETWORKING?
Apparently, it’s true that networking is a key business development the most good.Although sometimes the wider connections that we have further weakened the relationship with other connections, but the more extensive our friendship, the more things we get. Have we tried to extend our friendship? If it is not, especially for you who are still students, I recommend joining the TDA Community College, or Community TDA for non-students.
The five questions before you can try to ask ourselves if our business is already saturated or stuck. Do we have a good reason? Do we really give the best product? Is this business is perfect for us personally? Is it obvious target market? And if we have to build brotherhood and friendship with an area of?
