    Investing in the stock market can actually be seen as a business on its own. It takes planning and strategy and a lot of research to convert this into a personal business. For example, if you understand the telecom business,you can participate in that business by buying PLDT or Globe shares. You can measure future return by looking at the earnings potential and historical dividend yield. If you do the proper research you can receive regular earnings either from buy and hold or trading strategies.

  13. Amazing post. I like these features and qualities of good entrepreneur. I'll develop myself.

  14. dextertechathandnet says:

    I think this reminds me to plan.. because usually, I am very impulsive. The moment i think of it , i do it.. and sometimes it fails.. in addition number 10 is my favorite. We need to have spirit and believe on what we do.

  15. viclogic says:

    That's right, we live not by food but we live by our spirits. Planning is very important, and it's even one great virtue stated in the Bible to achieve lasting success.

  16. A good entrepreneur knows to calculate risks.
    Who makes a company are the employees.
    Employees poorly paid, and not well treated, have no incentive to work, therefore, will not have the slightest desire to help your business grow.

    An employee well paid and satisfied does everything for the company – even work till late hours.

    Before opening any business, make sure to know exactly what you going to offer your employees. They can be the eyes for your business a key for your success, depends on the treatment received.

    Thank you for your visiting here again. You are right and your additional insights are pretty much appreciated. Employees are very important in an organization.That is because they are humans and considered as the hearts and brains of an organization.

  18. PSP Go says:

    In other words we all have the capacity to do it if we work hard and have self belief.

  19. All I can say to you on an honest basis is that some of these online opportunities are proven to be scams that is very true therefore it is about researching to see what is genuine and what is not however some people think that online businesses are get rich quick schemes which they are not they take alot of work just like any business however the rewards for that work will be good.
