I get excited when people ask me questions about business! It really makes my day! Just last night I checked my Facebook messages, after like a few days of not checking and I found the most interesting question ever.
"As an electrical engineer,which business can I do?"
What I find particularly interesting is that this person found it necessary to state which qualifications they possess.
I decided to write this blog... to help everyone who is in this particular position. Maybe you are not a qualified electrical engineer, maybe you are. Whichever way it is, my answer for this particular person and for you is exactly the same. And here it is!
Choosing a business to start all depends on you. The truth is it is very hard to start a business so you have to work hard to succeed. There are more chances of you failing than there are of you succeeding. If you want to succeed you have to work on your idea. Sometimes even through the night. Stick with it through all the stages of development. And in order to do so, you need PASSION! Ask yourself, "Am I passionate about this idea?" If you don't like what you pick chances are you will not succeed.
Another important thing to note is - DO NOT PUT YOURSELF IN A BOX! - Just because you are an electrical engineer it does mean you should start an electrical engineering company. What do you love? What are you PASSIONATE about?
Maybe you want to open a bar? Or manufacture baby clothes, go into mining, fashion design or be a consultant for electrical engineering? The sky is the limit!
