There are couples of reasons why so many people are not able to start a successful business.
One reason is because most of us (unfortunately) spent the first 25 years of our lives learning NOTHING about money or how to build a business (don’t let me crucify school today).
One other reason is because most people are overwhelmed by the fact that they think they would have to invent something completely new before they could build a successful business.
These people are wrong.
In fact, the opposite is the truth.
If you want to become a successful entrepreneur, you must not be an inventor.
Have a look at the richest people in the world and you’ll understand what I mean.
How many of the 100 richest men are inventors?
Bill Gates wasn’t the “owner” of the software that made him rich. He bought it.
Mark Zukerberg wasn’t the first person to start a social media site. He added his creativity.
Google isn’t the first search engine. They make it better.
Dangote wasn’t the first man to produce cement.
I can continue mentioning but my ink is about to finish.
What then is my point?
Well, you don’t have to worry your good self about being an inventor.
Why all the headaches when you can “STEAL” what others have invented?
Steal? No. “steal”.
The fastest and easiest way to build a successful business is to look around for what others are already doing and then “steal” their models.
When you steal (“steal”) this business model, you can take it to another industry, twist and turn it, then launch a business or you can “steal” the model, add superior business skills and marketing, then some uniqueness, to compete in the same industry.
I have done this successfully on an industry and just starting out with the second industry.
I tell you, you don’t have to be an inventor.
But you have to be a business student.
You have to read business, think business and observe business games.
If you’re a good business student and observer, building a busiiness becomes one of those games.
I love the game of business.
