How can you become a successful entrepreneur without higher education?
Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Richard Branson, all these successful entrepreneurs do not have higher education, some of them tried to learn, but halfway through understood that this was not what they wanted and started their own business. Here it is necessary to take into account the times in which the above-mentioned people grew up, and that then, in fact, there were much more opportunities. In general, higher education is a rather important component in the development of any person, but today it is possible to become a successful entrepreneur without a diploma from a university. In the world, including in Russia, there are a large number of courses that will help you open your first business, teach you how to work with staff, and tell you about the basics of marketing.
If you follow Russian businessmen, many of them have become successful only because they are engaged in their favorite business. Natura Siberica cosmetics originated in the basement of a residential building and the initial investment amounted to only $ 1000 – look at the scale of this company now. Today, almost any business can be opened with investments of even less than $ 1000 and gradually develop and grow. Considering the fact that 90% of services and products can be sold via the Internet, then you may not need to open an office. Now, in order to provide a quality product and earn millions, it is not necessary to sell anything at all. Look at such Western companies as Netflix (they don’t make films themselves), Uber (they don’t have their own taxis), Airbnb (they don’t own property), Spotify (they don’t produce music and the same Instagram. You can start with $ 100, which is enough to create a good website and start offering your services. Take advantage of the opportunities that are under your nose and continue to develop in the industry that is closest to you.
Most recently, we were able to familiarize ourselves with an interview with a young entrepreneur of an internet marketer who managed to launch an information portal about a financial instrument binary options and recoup all initial investments after two months of work. Of course, this is most likely the uniqueness of this industry, but in general it shows how easy it is to launch your own project and start earning.
For example, if you like to read, you can start writing book reviews in your own blog, while putting affiliate links to sites where you can buy books you read. After you reach a certain level, the publishers themselves will start sending you books for free in exchange for a quality review. Love to travel, please, the path in the world of bloggers is already trodden in principle, the main thing is to make really high-quality material and be able to monetize your “product” that you offer to the masses. You do not have to write about binary options, if you don’t like them, do what you love, write about it or create something new that can improve this industry, and thus you can make money.
Let us return to what we started from, education is not necessary to achieve success in our lives, but it makes us educated people who feel more confident with paper in the hands of the community and, moreover, you will always have the opportunity to get a job if your business will not go. And we will finish the article with a quote from Andrei Trubnikov, the founder of Nature Siberik: “Look for holes in any niche that you can plug your product in!”.
