Jeremy Harbour, a serial entrepreneur and thought leader, started his first business at the age of 14. After starting multi-million dollar businesses and creating hundreds of jobs, he is sharing his business secrets and growth hacks with future entrepreneurs in his book “Go Do!”
Here are the major tips and ideas for entrepreneurs who want to start their own business and launch successful companies:
1. Be clear why you want to start your business
Don’t start a business because you are bored of your 9-5 job routine. Start only when you’re truly prepared for the journey of entrepreneurship and want to make a difference.
2. Create a business plan
Make a detailed business plan covering USP, target audience, market competition, and financials. Keep it simple but don’t forget to chalk out what differentiates you from the others.
3. Perfect your pricing
Most entrepreneurs jump into the market without conducting market deep dive and preparing pricing model. Keep the numbers in mind so that you’ll be clear what goal you have to achieve in terms of revenue.
While above are few business hacks from Jeremy Harbour, the book is full of growth anecdotes that draw from his personal experience as an entrepreneur. Here’s an excerpt from the same book:
“In current state of economic turbulence, everyone wants to start a business but it isn’t as easy as it sounds. It’s a journey that requires a lot of hard work and dedication. Many people end up failing. But if your business succeeds, the rewards of entrepreneurship can be very delicious”
