who participates in a business
venture and who develops and
maintains business operations.

business owner to be involved
in one or more businesses

corporations or
entrepreneurships. A

one who may oversee one or
more successful businesses,

industry professionals. To be

connections are made.

that brings people
together by treating
people equally and fairly,
and encouraging them to
work together.

when it comes to

the mediator, rather than
involving yourself

business success with
passion. It is not enough to
just want to be a business
owner. A passion for success
is what will make you stand
out from the average.

mentor. Choose to
develop a relationship with a
business owner whose
career you would like to
emulate. You may find this
mentor through social circles
or by researching businesses
that you deem as successful
and asking for advice.

7. Take calculated risks.
You must take some
chances and step outside the
norm in order to become a
business owner that stands
out amongst competitors.
This means accepting the
inevitability of small failures
and learning to see them as
opportunities for growth.
Plan your ventures carefully
and hedge as much risk as
you can, but be prepared for
the occasional setback.
