Passion Fuels A Business
That is the key to your success. Turn Your "PASSION" Your Knowledge Into Revenue...Do What Successful "Infopreneurs" Do. Become an "information entrepreneur." Basically monetize what you know.
All of us have at least two or three things that excite us. We could talk about these subjects for hours. People still don't realize that their hobbies and life skills can generate a solid income on the Web.
For small or home offices, startups, and newbies, this is ideal for the small business person just starting out (and there are zillions of folks in this boat, looking desperately for a way to make money online).
It's so simple. Not "easy" (real business takes some work)... it's simple. No technical barriers to stop you. Provide in-demand information ("Content") about something you know. Don't forget to check out the Tax Break Video. "Be Inspired!"
Have you ever been around someone who says, “I love my job” or “I love what I do!” Though you are happy for them. Then you stop to think about what you are doing, and say to yourself, “I wish I could say the same.” Well you can!
We have the resources that will jump start the process or assist you in taking your business to the next level. No more excuses. You Can Do It!
‣ Be Positive, Persistent, Determined, Motivated! It is contagious!
‣ Differentiate yourself from the pack. Be a maverick, don't just go with the flow.
‣ Trust your instinct- Have confidence in Yourself! Don't forget to be yourself!
‣ Don't give up! Find something to hang on when things get tough!
‣ Create loyalty in your company.
‣ Understand what is important.
‣ Choose the right people for the right place.
‣ Stay involved.
Always consider the possibility that what you expect to happen won't and what you don't expect to happen will. That way you'll be ready with ideas for change to adapt, not react, to whatever is thrown at your company. Summarized as "always have a B plan" just in case. My best advice is to not be afraid to fire people the second they are not working out. A loser will do a lot more damage than no one at all.
Business is not about technology, it is not about products, it is not about marketing, it is not about finance, it is not about manufacturing; yes, you need all that but business in all about PEOPLE. You have to motivate people, sell people, work with people, leverage people, satisfy people... and when you are done, you might have a little time left over for those other things.

An entrepreneur is a person who has possession of an enterprise, or venture, and assumes significant accountability for the inherent risks and the outcome. It is an ambitious leader who combines land, labor, and capital to often create and market new goods or services.
Entrepreneurship is often difficult and tricky, resulting in many new ventures failing. The word entrepreneur is often synonymous with founder. Most commonly, the term entrepreneur applies to someone who creates value by offering a product or service, by carving out a niche in the market that may not exist currently. Entrepreneurs tend to identify a market opportunity and exploit it by organizing their resources effectively to accomplish an outcome that changes existing interactions within a given sector.
Business entrepreneurs are viewed as fundamentally important in the capitalistic society. Some distinguish business entrepreneurs as either "political entrepreneurs" or "market entrepreneurs," while social entrepreneurs' principal objectives include the creation of a social and/or environmental benefit.
Entrepreneurship is the act of being an entrepreneur which is a French word meaning one who undertakes an endeavor. Entrepreneurs assemble resources including innovations, finance and business acumen in an effort to transform innovations into economic goods.
The concept of entrepreneurship has a wide range of meanings. On the one extreme an entrepreneur is a person of very high aptitude who pioneers change, possessing characteristics found in only a very small fraction of the population. On the other extreme of definitions, anyone who wants to work for himself or herself is considered to be an entrepreneur.
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary presents the definition of an entrepreneur as one who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise.
