Have you been thinking about making that leap from working for someone else to being your own boss? Imagine waking up every morning full of energy, excited and eager to seize the day because you’re doing something that you love and you’re passionate about. Even better, you own it, you are the boss, you set your own goals, make your own dreams, meet your own targets.
If that sounds like a scenario you’ve been dreaming about but nothing has been done to start, you’re not alone. A lot of Malaysians dream about owning their own business, but have no idea where to begin. While it may be a challenge to get started being your own boss, it is definitely not impossible. Just look at the number of companies listed in Malaysia, both small and big. Incorporating a company is a challenge that can be accomplished.
If you can’t find a job you love to do, then you need to create your own dream job by turning what you love into your career. Here are 8 tips on how every Malaysian can get started on their entrepreneurial journey:
Determine a Business That is Right for You
- There are a lot of business niches, and a lot of them may seem appealing to venture into. But a good entrepreneur knows it is better to be a master of one trade and excel in it. So, take the time to sit down, make a list of what interests you and choose the one that you’re most passionate about. Ask yourself what will give you the drive to keep going even when you’re exhausted. And that will be the one that is the business for you.
Target the 3 Entrepreneurship Approaches
- Do what you know, learn from others and solve a common problem. When you do what you know, you’ll be able to do it better. Identify other businesses similar to yours that have already achieved success, study them, learn from them and emulate them. Does your business solve a common problem or fill a gap that is currently in the market? If it does, your business definitely has a higher rate of success, and you’re on the right track already.
