Our proud leader, Toivo Halvorsen, was once a new entrepreneur much like many of you. Now he has virtually built a company from the ground up, which provides business professionals with corporate housing in major US cities. There are some tips we, at Dharma Home Suites, would like to share with any of you attempting to pursue your dreams of having your own business.
The Importance of Networking in the Corporate World
In today’s society it really comes down to who you know. Hard work pays off don’t get me wrong, but hard work done in front of the right people pays off a whole lot more. Toivo, the owner of Dharma Home Suites, initially got into the business of corporate housing and expanded by going to conferences, meeting new people, talking with other industry leaders, using social media such as LinkedIn, and much more. Essentially, if anyone has anything to do with the industry you’re trying to get into, meet them, talk with them, and be a decent enough person that they may help you in the future.
You Might be Busy, but Professionals Shouldn’t Forget Their Health
As you may have seen from previous articles, Dharma Home Suites can’t stress the importance of your health enough, especially if you’re a business professional. Too often you probably get caught up in doing things from sunrise to sunset, but this is the fast track to burning out. Instead, ensure you’re eating a healthy amount of nutritious food each day, and perhaps start the morning with a good workout sesh to get the blood flowing.
Knowledge Leads to Wisdom, Which Leads to Success in the Corporate World
Almost every single industry or product out in the world today is a whole lot more complicated than seen at face value. For example, if you get into SEO, it’s not just using keywords in order to rank better on Google. There’s a lot more that goes into Internet marketing. As said any other industry is the same, so be sure you go out there each day and try to learn something new and beneficial about what you’re trying to accomplish as an entrepreneur.
Proper Business Ethics Help You Work Smarter not Harder
Most importantly, to be an entrepreneur you have to have the right attitude. You have to accept that you are going to be frequently wrong and make mistakes. Even in the face of that though, you have to continue to challenge yourself, face your fears, and have fun with it. Fix your mistakes by receiving customer feedback. Hire a team of people who share your views. Organize your finances and everything else for crying out loud!
Ultimately to be an entrepreneur you have to be determined, committed, and able to persevere.
