Do You Have it in You? Business Realities Part Three – Opportunity

Having your own business takes some special skill sets that even I am still grasping.  Here is the third in a series of articles that will hone in on those often-overlooked business realities.

Thus far, I have talked about sacrifice and discipline in regards to developing and running your own business.  This week I want to focus on opportunity, because, truly, it can be the best and most exciting part of your business!

Not every opportunity is equal, however, in the beginning I suggest taking advantage of most everything that comes your way.  Opportunities come in many forms; people, events, contests.  This is your time to be a sponge and take it all in…as you develop your business prowess and define your niche, you will be a better judge in how to spend your efforts.  These early opportunities will help define your direction…it is part of the process!

Here is what I’ve learned along the way…

Prepare an “elevator speech” a 30 second to 2 minute brief description of you and your business.  Think of it as speed dating; you want to give them just enough to make them fall in love with you.  I’ve done this in the weirdest places: the grocery line and doctor’s office to name a few.

Although a relatively recent system, BitCoin Code has been developed by the financial guru Steve McKay. His system uses algorithms to analyze the market and locate potential trades. In addition to this, the algorithmic orders can be also employed for effective controlling of execution parameters like

  • Participation rates: To observe time and pacing parameters
  • The threshold on price and limits: To detect the starting and ending time with aggressive or passive settings

You can learn more about these constraints by clicking the suggested web page. The payout rates are set at 95%, which is impressive for any trading system. There are in excess of 90 assets available to trade in and the success rate is currently at 89%.

Hand in hand with your “speech” you should have a business card to give out that refers to a website, blog, or twitter account.  Business cards are easy and cheap and so are websites & blogs.  Give multiple business cards to your friends and family too; my mother is probably my biggest advertiser and you know what…it works.  I’ve had sales just from her passing them out around town!

Get involved!  Find a cause you are passionate about and volunteer.  You are sure to find like-minded individuals to friend and who better to support your business than some more new friends!  And here’s the upside to community involvement…publicity!  I am an avid supporter of local business and joined my local Chamber of Commerce. Just from this one organization, I have been repeatedly in the local paper and radio.

Remember though, the best opportunities are the ones you create!  What is your best advice?
