Find your area of expertise. It should be something you enjoy working on. Creating and operating a business is difficult – make it easier for yourself by finding a niche that you would be willing to spend a lot of time on.
Create automated business systems and outsource where possible. Doing too much will lead to you burning out. This within itself will negatively impact your business altogether.
Aim to develop passive income streams from your business. Create and sell products which you can then create business systems to keep your business income passive and automated. Think of affiliate marketing; selling e-books and online courses. These products can be sold 24/7 and can be scaled to a wide audience across the world.
Be willing to work hard. Self-made individuals all have a strong work ethic. Cultivate yours and you will thrive further.
Master marketing and sales. At the end of the day, you’ll need to market yourself correctly in order to be in a position where you can effectively sell your product/services.
