“The Shadow CEO”
Athan Slotkin, an international small business expert, and The Shadow CEO, on his top 5 tips for how to start a business?
Non-Fungible Tokens: Athan Slotkin of The Shadow On The 5 Things You Need To Know To Create a Highly Successful Career In The NFT Industry. Article here.
Pick a business that people need … like really, really need. The goal is to drive people’s livelihood as well as large amounts of happiness and health.
Pick a business that has LARGE profit margins. As you’re figuring it out, you can take on costs and still have room for profit, which can then improve over time.
Pick an industry that you understand very well or are willing to become an expert in. That way, especially early on, if you need to fill a gap on the team you can do so. You’ll also be able to promote the company passionately and intelligently.
Think mid-to-long term. Building a business is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. Your job is to start with an “unscalable” foundation and then figure out how to scale what you’re offering more effectively. It will take time to get to the scale that you want. There’s no such thing as an overnight success; even those that look like overnight successes took a lot of work to develop and build.
Know your numbers – financials, “unit economics” – inside and out. These numbers will impact every single decision you make in your business.
Bonus – you have to share your business
