In this blog, I will be sharing the 4 P’s that every Entrepreneur needs to know before they start their business.
The 4 P’s for Entrepreneurs is for every one individual who is willing to succeed on the long-haul. At the surface they seem simple.

Before you even start setting up a business, you need to ask yourself why you are starting the company in the first place. Is it to make much money, or is it to solve a problem. Once you got your purpose right, you will move on to doing something about it. You need to create a mission statement that is close to your heart. Every word needs to convey a message.
Once you are done with the mission of your company, it will get easy to pitch the company to the investors. Because you are clear about what you want with the company, you will be able to convey that message well.
You enjoy everything about your company. Right from day-to-day activities to taking the big decision for your venture. Have you created a business that you love; if not, you need to start doing that. Rather than doing something you’re good at, do something that drives yours away from time and space.
Many of the businesses fail just because the founders lost interest in it. As of my friend Josh Davidson, you need to be very clear why are you creating the company and you need a solid business plan for your company. If you don’t have one, create one before you pitch your idea to the investors and also must read some stories for successful business startups to build confidence.
You’re not paid off what you plan for the company, and you are paid for what you’re worth. Your worth is defined by the work you do. Before you hire people you need to show them what you’re worth, and in the same way, you need them to know what they are worth too. You need to make them realize that they will be paid off what they are worth. Also, for that, they need to show what they are worth.
When you’re the employee rather than the owner, you can enjoy everything with your co-workers. However, once you become the owner you need to be very careful how to deal with your co-workers. Of course, you need to be very friendly when dealing with them. However, along with that, you need them to realize that you deserve respect. It would be best if you were close and at a distance at the same time.
While you may think that Entrepreneurship is the way up, you need to realize that you need to plans things well ahead of time. As an entrepreneur, you need to be very clear about what you want with your customers and your employees.
