What are some of the essentials to run a business successfully? Money has been given the most importance while other aspects are overlooked blatantly.

In this article we would discuss about the key ingredients for a successful business.

Start Up Success

Time – The Most Crucial Factor

Successful business people have understood well that time is money. The main objective in a business is to make money. The question is how productively you are able to convert your time factor into money.

Your value depends on how good you are at converting your time into money. Say if you are already productive, then you should go a step ahead and ask yourself how you could increase your dollar second ratio a little further.

That is if you are making 1 cent a second then what could you do in order to make 2 cents per second or more. Time is a valuable asset once it’s lost, it cannot be gained.

People To People Contact

People connections are more important than we could actually realize. People include customers, partners, suppliers, staff and associates. Therefore organize your people connections in a paper or spread sheet. Simply by knowing who does what, who supplies what, who needs what, where to get what, will take you miles ahead of your competitors.

Knowledge and Skills

This is very specific to your business and will help you to take innovative decisions in terms of business. There is too much knowledge out there, therefore be cautious of being drowned in it. But rather only focus on what you need to know and apply it effectively at various circumstances.


This cannot be underestimated at any level. A sound health is required if you are planning to be prosperous in the long term. Therefore make some time for exercise routines and health practices in your daily life. Physical and mental health can cost you a lot of money if it is not taken care of properly.

Money and Investment

We need money in order to make money. There are many people who wish to get rich but are not willing to invest money. We cannot expect to make money before first investing it; the law of sowing and reaping is at work. Money is one of the investments that you need to make.

Go For Less Competitive Nice Market

Look for a niche that enables you to provide significant value with less competition. There will always be someone who will try to enter the market and sell at a lower price – avoid competition with them. Let the low price providers beat each other up over the low price shoppers.

Rather look for what makes your product or service better than the competition and finds ways to express its value – and charge for it.

Organize Your Business In Systematic Way

Build a repeatable business process that can be documented and performed with consistency. Any business need to unique identity about their product and service and then find ways to deliver that product or service utilizing existing efficient business practices.

Look at how other successful bands handle their finance, sales, marketing, human resources, logistics, etc. You also need to implement similar systems across the board throughout your business.

Find ways to automate the process where repeatable tasks are needed. You need to identify where human intervention is unnecessary or and invest in the technology and procedures that will ultimately lead to more efficient and effective outcomes.
