Passion for Business

Passion is important in business. All small business owners need passion for their work if the business is going to succeed. Photo courtesy of Shutterstock.

I’ve been an entrepreneur for 30 years, and I’ve created several successful businesses. How did I become successful? The number one thing that drove my business success was passion.

When I started out, my passion was to start a business and succeed at it. My passion for succeeding and avoiding failure caused me to learn things I didn’t want to learn or do, like public speaking and writing. Because I was so passionate about success, the things I disliked about business became my friends.

Passion in businesses is important if you want to be a successful entrepreneur. But, is passion necessary?

Passion in business can help you succeed

Do you have to be passionate about your product or service? No, but having a passion for business does help.

While you don’t have to be passionate about “what” you’re selling, you can be passionate about starting a business or being self-employed. That’s what I was passionate about; I just wanted to be an entrepreneur. I was passionate about succeeding, no matter what. I wanted to be a successful business owner.

Passion is what drives you. Passion keeps you going despite the difficulties that your business will inevitably come across. I had many opportunities to throw up my arms and simply give up, but my passion caused me to keep going. I couldn’t think about anything but making my business succeed.
