David Karp, the founder and CEO of Tumblr, said that an “entrepreneur is someone who has a vision for something and a want to create it”. Not that we’re arguing with David, but having a vision and a desire is just the start of getting success in the business world – you also need skills. Proper training, such as a diploma in business administration , sharpens your desires and ideas into something truly great.
The business world is full of people with many great ideas that have never really seen the light of day. Or if they did, they didn’t last very long. After all, Bloomberg reports that a shocking 80% of business crash and burn within their first 18 months. Many of these businesses started with great ideas, but without the knowledge to maintain these businesses, there wasn’t much hope for the entrepreneurs.
That’s where good training really can make a world of difference. By getting the skills that these unfortunate people didn’t have you can ensure that you have a lot more to work with. From understanding accounting, to managing people and doing market research, you’ll have the core business principles and entrepreneurial skills to be able to work in and manage a small to medium enterprise.
So why delay your career in business any longer? The opportunities are out there for you to grasp, all you need to do to get there is to take that important first step.
