People often think that having a small business is a difficult venture and while this is generally true to some degree, it must be emphasized that there are people who actually think of their small businesses as some sort of their pastime activity. This might be considered as a secret behind the most successful businesses.
The reality is that success of a business is relative to the level of passion of its owner. There are those whom people call “passionpreneurs,” who used their love for some things and transformed this into a small business.
For instance, there are people who love greeting cards who decided to start their own greeting card store. There are also those who love animals, and decided open pet shops to earn from what they like to do. These kinds of ventures hit two birds in one stone – establishing a small business and doing what the things the entrepreneurs love.
Unfortunately, having a passion and transforming it into a viable venture will not be as easy as it sounds. There are things that have to be addressed in order for the small business to become profitable and successful. Here are some things that a prospective entrepreneur will have to think about if he or she decides to turn his or her passion into a small business:
This is the most important thing that one has to think about when starting a business. For those who love greeting cards, it’s easy to think about the product – the greeting cards themselves.
But what about those who are passionate about other stuff like animals? Will the business sell animals, or offer services for pets? This is perhaps the most important question that a would-be entrepreneur will have to ask his or herself. After all, the product is the most important thing for a small business.
Business is about engaging other people to avail of the product or service. And while there may be a handful of people who are also passionate about the idea of animals or greeting cards, there is also a need for the business owner to engage other “less passionate” customers to look into business. This is where marketing comes in, and it asks the question: How will you encourage other people who are not as passionate as you are to pay for your product or service?
