You want to start a business around your passion? Here are few issues you need to consider before we dive into the real steps.
#1Dig deeper to uncover hidden needs.
There is this word called CONVERGENCE and this is what it basically means. For you to make money, your passion or hobby should meet the needs of other people. It looks like a Venn diagram, if you remember that from high school. There are two circles meeting right? The center created by two meeting circles is where your business is..do a research, find out the gap and fill in.
#2make your customer a hero.
Get them to like you a bit. value their feedback and concerns. Market in such a way that they feel that you are more concerned about their needs than the money they are paying for your product or service.
#3 sell what people buy….funny as it sounds…please sell what people buy. Add value…improve it…make it worth buying…make it look or feel worthwhile.
