Passion for Business

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.
