According to Entrepreneur, Steve Wozniak has shared important tips for entrepreneurs who are just getting started on the field. The most notable piece of advice Wozniak has for newbies is to accept that they don't need a flash spotlight to define success. Wozniak cited Steve Jobs' media reputation as a "God-like visionary" did not mean that Wozniak was not doing anything to contribute to the company's success. While Steve Jobs does his thing, Wozniak is working hard behind Steve Jobs and it was not important if this information was shared with the public. Basically, fame to boost your ego should not be the definition of success.
In addition, Wozniak mentioned that first-time entrepreneurs should make sure that they love what they are doing. Settling for a product or a service that is not inclined with where your passion is just because it already has an established market, does not necessarily mean success in the long run. Choosing a product or service for your business must be something you love, regardless of how small the demand is, eventually, you will get a customer and expansion will come along.
Finally, Wozniak believes that the team behind you is important as well. These people have to share the same passion as you and are willing to be part of your market. That being said, it matters that your teammates patronize your product to the point of using it as well.
In a nutshell, entrepreneurship is not all about the money, the clientele, or the fame, it is about doing what you love, with people who share the same passion as you. Stay tuned to Jobs & Hire for more entrepreneur tips for aspiring businessmen and women alike.
