If you’ve followed our SABU series then you know by now you should have your business idea, name, branding and everything set-up and you are essentially ready to get onto the business world map. But this article is a word of warning about the real effort that goes into business. the real lows, the suffering and effort that it requires is like nothing you have ever experienced before.
To start I want you to watch a very powerful video by Gary Vaynerchuk that I think most business people can relate to. Gary if you don’t know is now an extremely successful businessman who owns VaynerMedia, amongst other shares in huge companies, he predicted snapchat’s explosion and is one of the top social media marketing guys on the planet right now. I really enjoy his content and this is a powerful video that you need to watch on “the overnight success”
The grind is generally your first 100 days in business, but it can only last 10 days, but it can also last 10 years. It is the 12 hour days, day after day that you have to put into your business. Remember Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook? Of course you do, but what you might not know is that Mark’s story depicted in the social network was actually not all that accurate, when Mark was asked what he thought of the movie he stated:
I liked it, but I don’t remember that much partying. I remember the long 20 hour days and nights fixing bugs.
If Mark Zuckerberg, one of the youngest (if not the youngest) Billionaire in the world had to hustle and grind, then you can be sure that you are going to have to! All of those businesses that seem like they came onto the scene in a few weeks or months took years of planning, capital raising, heartaches, errors and who knows what else! Some notable examples: Airbnb & Uber…. Huge companies now, 5 years ago simply ideas. In that 5 years these companies did enough work and put enough effort in to be in the position they are in now. Do you have that in you? If not then don’t waste your own time and just get your degree and go and climb the corporate ladder!
Most businesses are made in 100 days, and it is usually down to the passion of the individual rather than the amount of money they generate. If you generate 30 sales in 100 days you might earn a few hundred bucks. But if you’ve built systems that keep generating you these sales for the rest of your business’s life, then technically you haven’t only earnt a few hundred quid, instead you have built a business that you can profit from for years to come. This is callsed passive residual income and there is alot to discuss about it in the world of business and its something we will be looking at in the coming future, and article entirely on system, passive income and which route is best for you. A.) The Generic build it big and large business. or B.) the Soloprenur.
There are numerous business owners that can come up with a good name for their business, but there are also those that have difficulty trying to come up with a name, even if they have written a lot and seem to be disappointed with it. Coming up with a name for your business means a lot. Getting the right name will turn your company or business the talk of the town. Getting the wrong one will make your business doom to failure. The name should convey the value, uniqueness and expertise of the service or product that you have come up with. You will find the experts will tell you that business names that are abstract. This is because when it is abstract, the owner or founder of the company will then create the purpose of the business, thus giving it an image to the name of the business. There are others who think that the name of the business should be an informative one so that when the customers read it they know immediately what the business is. There are others that believe in coined names, which is a combination of made-up words because they are easily to remember compared with names that makes use of real words. However, there are people who think they are forgettable. However, taking a look at reality, naming your business will be appropriate if it is done with marketing strategy.
If you have a difficult time coming up with a name, you might want to consider hiring an expert to help you with it. It is a complicated process for a number of people and hiring experts is highly recommended to those who are in the field in which the company may have a great influence in the business’s success. Naming firms is where you should hire the experts. They have these elaborate systems made in creating names for businesses and that they know their way really well, especially when it comes to trademark. Names should be unique, so it must not violate the trademark laws. Even if your name has just two letters of the word and that the sound is almost similar to the ones that are already existing, you are likely to be filed a lawsuit from the one who had the trademarked name first.
However, hiring experts can take a heavy toll on you, especially when it comes to costs. Having the name of your business handled by professionals can get as expensive as $80,000, just coming up with the name. This includes the graphic design and many other identity work, which is already a package, yet this is only in general sense. Sometimes your name might be so obvious you don’t need a branding agency. For example if your business is renting Ferraris then call your business that (exactly what these guys did with great success). You might find other naming firms to be more expensive. You will also find others that offer as little as $50, but if you want a quality advice from experts, you might want to consider hiring them since it can save a lot of money in the long term.
You can do your own naming if you are convinced you can do it, but don’t forget about trademark to avoid being sued. Alternatively you can hire a branding company, such as: http://thebrandingdivision.co.uk/ (disclaimer, I am affiliate with these guys.) to sort this out for you, but this can be time consuming and expensive.
What brings you here is probably the reason why this article is being made in the first place. You have that urge to start a business while you are still attending your college courses. It is your calling or you simply want to have a sideline that you want to see for yourself whether or not it will last longer even after you have graduated. There are also those that use the income they got from their business as a way to pay for their school fees. By reading the ideas listed below, you will get an idea or two on which you can get it started. Keep in mind that this is not a way for you to make it easy in the business scene or even get quick money. Every business, whether you are at a university or not, starts with a hurdle they need to overcome in order to see that their business becomes fruitful.
Before you read the ideas, first you need to do your own research – what do most people really want or need? You should also try to think about whether or not you can invent or provide something that will make the lives of people better, easier, cheaper, safer or fairer. This idea should also be something that you love to do or that what you are really good or skillful with. If you have any, you should begin with that. You can also think about other ventures that will support your future career or degree course.
Since you are at a university try something with alternative sounds that are not too noisy, selling free stuff that you can find at either Freecycle or Gumtree, create your own channel at YouTube and you can earn a slice of their ad revenue – this is only applicable when there are lots of subscribers to your channel – and create your own guides or reviews that are related to the subjects of your course or you can also pick any kind of topic that will really fasinate you. You can also run your own vlog, which is a video blogging or running advertising. The more you get subscribers to your channel, the more you get to make with the pay-per-view system that the site provides to its members. Making a channel and sharing your videos should be something that you love to do, not the ones that are selling a lot yet you have no energy to put nor the effort in it. It will only be a waste. You can also try buying the second-hand books that are in demand at the end of a term and then sell them to the new students just as the new term starts. There are also others that let their student house or room rented out during the summer months via the Airbnb.
If your ideas are not listed here or anywhere you can search and it is something new, you should, even boring businesses can make a huge sum of money. A friend of mine owns a leaflet distribution company, you can’t get much more boring than that, but he makes great money!
Although there are a lot of people that wait for the right time to become full-fledged entrepreneurs, like the ones that are waiting to graduate from university, there are those that cannot wait to graduate and just go for it. This has been on the increase lately thanks to the internet and social media for raising awareness that there is no right time or age to start a business. If you’ve got an idea, do it now. Entrepreneurs that are still in school can be overwhelmed with different priorities if they are not careful, so how should they make the right priorities?
It is up to the student to figure out their priorities. While there are a couple of student entrepreneurs that have tried all that they can handle, which is getting a profitable business and at the same time a high GPA, there are those that see things quite differently. You might be considering your business as a career path after you have graduated. There are those that shared how it was difficult for them to balance it all, but they were able to work it around and give some useful tips on how to balance it.
What you need to do first is to make a schedule that will aid in managing time with your school and business effectively. Being a student, you have the freedom of downtime that working professionals can never have when pursuing an idea for a business. One particular CEO from advance-yourself.com.au shared his experience about how he focuses on one thing at a given time. He chose a schedule of MWF, which is Monday, Wednesday and Friday focused on taking the classes, while the rest is given to managing the business. You can also take advantage of the fact that you are a student, meaning that you’ll get discounts or free services. There are stores that give out a free office software and operating system simply because you are a student. You might even get more freebies from other stores as you keep on looking for resources.
You should also take advantage of the resources provided for you at your university. You are given the vast network access that you may never see after you graduate. You see different people – those of your age and the ones below you, faculty members, student organizations and academic courses that readily is accessible to you. The professors at your school may even provide the best advise to you and can also get well-connected to you, which is helping you in creating introductions to contacts that will aid you in helping your business grow. Integrating your business with your schoolwork will also help you, too. You can take courses that will help you in getting your business more effective. For example, you can take business courses that will aid in your entrepreneurship. It will also help you a lot in drafting your business plan.
You will learn more as you go through your stage of being a student and a business owner at the same time. Just don’t forget the right balance.
