Your backup can be schooling, certifications, references, or even just testimonials. You do not want to start out a business without something that will give your potential customers the confidence to trust in you and buy your product or service.
Be creative. You must have the ability to think of innovative ways to succeed.
Creativity is very important and is definitely key to a successful business. You must be able to adapt to new technologies and ways of thinking to bring your business ahead of your competition or even just to grow it. You must also have the ability to come up with new ways yourself to market, produce, and sell your products better on a regular basis. Being able to try new things should also be something that you don’t run away from. Obtaining this trait (creativity) isn’t easy, but it’s definitely doable; just take time out of your week or month to think of new creative things that you can implement or try out.
