This will give you an idea of whether your idea is worth transforming it into a lucrative business or not.
  • Readily accept the hard work: Rajabi urges people not to leave their jobs already & to recognize the hard work that would come along with managing their job & simultaneously prepping up for their business. It is only when one thinks big & keeps working determinedly that they can make their dream a reality.
  • Grab that extra opportunity at work: When the company you work with faces a crisis or needs an extra hand to complete a project, grab hold of such opportunities & do not run away from them, points out Rajabi. The more you learn problem-solving, the more it will help in your own business & turn you into an entrepreneur faster.
  • Learn time-management: If you feel tired at the end of the day working for your corporate job, that won’t help you develop your own business. Hence, Rajabi insists on learning how to manage time in a day. He wants people to plan the day according to the tasks they are supposed to do & start early to complete them all on time. And, then asks them to shift their focus effortlessly on working for their business ideas. This will make them more productive & get them on the path of becoming entrepreneurs.
