Stop One Minute!
Now listen to me; you stop for a minute and think, what are you doing right now?
- Are you working for an individual or an organization?
- Are you working for yourself?
- Are you playing with your children or the people around you?
- Are you looking to build a business, a company or sell any product or service to the market?
And you’ll tell me I’m enjoying my life at some beach with my family, friends or loved ones, and I’m not doing anything?
Now, do you think in a way like this?
The essence of being born is that you have started your own business; what does this mean?
That’s when you were just born, and you needed to be served food, drink, milk, water; you immediately cried and cried because, at that time, your needs were just such simple things that you wanted to tell your friends loved ones around you that you need those things.
And if we look at it from a business perspective, this is a business where you are selling yourself.
To better understand this process, I will give an example when a child goes to school in a kindergarten or a gathering place with many other children and when that child has a need, he will have to do something to cause trouble attention of all those around it about the condition it needs, or in other words, it is selling itself.
However, most people don’t see this clearly when we grow up, go to work, or create our businesses.
In essence, in terms of core principles, not much changes when working for an individual or an organisation.
When working for an individual or an organisation, you sell all of your time, skillset and effort to that individual in exchange for monthly payments.
Or do you want to create your business system? You make a company to serve the market; this is obvious when we imagine trading as exchange transactions.
Now, if you look deeply, the whole world is in business.
So you see, the critical thing that we need to understand about business models and how it works or how it works will be inefficient or will fail.
And you can’t try all of these business models to learn which ones failed and what worked before, learn from failures and learn from other people’s successes especially the great books leave it as a treasure for you to avoid mistakes and be the right things in your life.
Here are a few books you should refer to on business strategies and business models worldwide.

So above, I have introduced and shared with you several books on business models, large and small; you can filter out and extract to find which models are suitable for resources, skills, and passions and with all the things around you that you think can work best.
And all these models, I repeat, are just models for reference; you can customise how it is not suitable for you, your market, your own company; no, there is a pattern of imposition that has created breakthrough success in the past certainly in the future.
