How to Make Money in Business

In my career as an accountant I’ve noticed the same 3 elements of all successful business operations.

I wrote this article as my first post to this website, honestly, this is horrible.  But I was new at this and excited to write something.  So I want you to read the replacement article written exactly two years later and 200 articles later.  This article:  Three Primary Characteristics of Successful Businesses replaces this post.   The three primary characteristics are:

  • First is a high threshold of knowledge associated with that operation. In effect, this reduces or eliminates the competition.
  • Two – perseverance by the owner. This could be years of steadfast commitment or not giving up in face of barriers.
  • Finally – well capitalized; this is not necessarily financial, often it is a time requirement or utilizing business associates. 
This website is dedicated to providing the necessary information to generate the marginal value of success in business and life. Act on Knowledge.
