There are many good things about San Diego, and one of them is that it produced Sawyer Winston. As an entrepreneur from San Diego, Sawyer has built himself as a seasoned entrepreneur to be reckoned with.
Because of his fool-proof tips on businesses (check out his writings on business and entrepreneurship on his blog.), we have decided to interview him. In this interview, he revealed the top tips for starting a business in 2021.
How relevant is it starting a business in 2021?
There is no time that starting a business can be more relevant. If you consider the country’s wave of unemployment, you would understand why starting a business is important. Even though I don’t advise people to go into business solely because they don’t have jobs, this time creates a good business opportunity.
The motivation needed is for the government to focus on creating a robust environment for businesses. I have also advised my network of fellow entrepreneurs to take San Diego seriously as a start-up destination.
Can anyone go into starting a business?
Business is not for only a particular set of people. Anyone can go into business and succeed. What is more important is for them to have the right information before going into business.
They need tips that would catapult their business into what they have always desired it to be. The tips are important for any person willing to start a business in 2021.
Please can you enlighten us on these tips?
These tips are the hacks for those starting a business in 2021. I believe that these tips would help the business achieve the development it has always desired. The tips are:
- Research: Yes, before you venture into that business in 2021, you must research and know many things. Times have changed greatly, and you have to be armed with the information of these changes for your business to impact.
In this light, you should research if there is enough market demand for your product or services. Find out about your competitors and how this might affect your business. Also, do your market research to understand the preference of your potential customers.
- Network Online: This is 2021, and no business should be without an online presence. Your online presence will take your business to places you never thought of.
Make sure you network convincingly and authoritatively. This will drive clients to your site.
- Delegate: As much as you would like to handle your business yourself, it is important you delegate. Delegating the crucial task to those who can handle them will ensure that things are done on time and with refined expertise.
- Get positive with your business: There is no doubt that things would be a bit rough when you start. This, however, should not be an avenue to drop the ball and close down the business. If you approach your business with enthusiasm and drive to create solutions, you would soon get the result you want.
- Stand out: Except you are bringing a new business to the market, you will have existing competitors. The best way to respond to this is to have what stands you out from others and continually push it. This way, you are sure that your clients will have a reason to come back to you.
Is there a certainty that the adoption of these tips guarantees success for a business?
If all these tips are adopted into a business, it is almost certain that the business will grow. I have tried them and seen results, so I have no doubts about them.
Do you think failure to adopt all or any of these tips would negatively affect the business?
The tips are important but not absolute. Failure to adopt them might have some consequences but does not necessarily mean the business would fail.
Young entrepreneurs can always think and come up with mind blowing ideas. Reasonable imaginations and creativity are very important for business.
