Tips on How to Become A Successful Startup

Owning a business seems to be the real deal now; having a source of income which you control and can control the profit you get can be quite a thrilling aspect when looked at. Businesses like fashion design, app development, marketing, graphics design, blogging, photography, and owning an online store can be really cool especially when managed well with the right knowledge and mindset. Here are a few things you need to know if you will do well as a business owner. 

1. Gain insight into the business: Before going into a business, when you have a business idea or plan that intrigues you, you need to be well informed on several aspects of it before embarking. For instance, when you are going into photography, there are certain elements which together make the beautiful pictures we see and admire. You don't have to be a professional before starting but don't start as a total newbie - at least get the base knowledge about what you want to do before starting.

This is to ensure that at whatever level of expertise you are at, you can deliver to your clients at the highest level of excellence. Reading books, taking classes or enquiring from people who are already in that field helps in gaining knowledge on what you intend to do.


2. Consider your funding options: This is a very important aspect. Some businesses like owning an online store do not necessarily require much funding but others require you to have a physical or walk-in store like fashion design does. Do you have enough capital to start? Are you going to need a loan or business grant? What are the necessary things you need? It is advisable you don't spend above your financial budget - just the most necessary and required things that your budget can cover are enough. 


3. Set up a business plan or structure: As a startup business owner, what do you intend to achieve between the first 3-6 months of starting, what are your long-term goals, how do you intend to achieve them, is the business going to be run solely by you or through a partnership? Who are your target clients? How do you intend to make sales? What will be your methods of advertising?

All these have to be known, taken note of and pre-planned so that upon beginning, you already know what steps you need to take per time.


4. Have the mindset of succeeding:  Having a lot of speculations and worries about how things will go is human. However, it is wrong when you let these worries take you to the negative extreme where you become pessimistic about your business. One thing you should decide upon when starting a business is that you are going to succeed and that things will go as planned no matter how tough they appear. We are a product of what we think, always considering a plan B at every limitation you face as a business owner is not a healthy mindset.

Since you have the right structure, the right mindset and dedication to that structure are what you need.



Starting a business and thriving in it is a lot of work. Seeing businesses and business owners looking so successful and good is quite the motivation. For every successful enterprise you see out there, a lot of work has been done behind the scenes. Therefore, stay focused, persevere and be organised as these traits become very handy as time goes on.
