The biggest obstacle in running a small business is not the money itself but the lack of a salary.
Many small businesses in Mumbai, especially those based on the tourist circuit, have no employees at all, but that does not mean they are not struggling.
Here are a few tips on how to run your own business in India without a job.
Don’t get discouraged by the lack.
While a salary is an important element in running an online business, a jobless economy can still be a good thing.
People who work hard can prosper, while people who don’t work hard are likely to have a worse outcome.
There are many jobs available that will allow you to be part of a flourishing business in the future, especially if you have a decent salary.
For example, the salary for a salesperson, who sells goods to customers, is Rs.2,000-3,000 a month.
A salesperson’s salary is likely to be similar to the salary of a full-time salesperson.
In Mumbai, it is almost impossible to find a full time employee for a shop, especially when it comes to online businesses.
In such a scenario, it can be a challenge to find the right person who is willing to work on your behalf.
Don´t get stuck.
If you are lucky enough to find an opportunity to run an online shop, it may be the only way you can get a salary or get a part-time job.
Many people in India are not willing to accept a part time job even if the salary is high.
It is possible that you will have to give up your dream of a career in retail, for instance, because you do not have enough time.
In that case, you will need to find someone who can give you a part or full-timing job.
If not, you may be better off looking for other employment opportunities.
Make sure your skills are up to snuff.
The best way to get a job in India is to have the skills that you need to succeed.
If a sales associate or a customer service representative is not able to speak Hindi, that is not an issue.
However, if a customer services representative cannot speak English, then he or she may be unable to help customers, or may not even be able to help them in the first place.
If that is the case, then you will be left with the option of using a translator, or even writing your own language.
Look for a partner.
It can be hard to find partners for small online businesses in India.
Many online business owners are not interested in partnering with one another.
It may be a hard choice to make, but it can pay to search for other opportunities.
A partner can provide you with a good salary, and if you want to go further, he or her can provide support in building up your business.
In many cases, it will not be possible to find two partners for a small shop.
If there is no one available, it might be better to partner with one of your friends.
Don`t be afraid to be open.
As the years go by, the barriers to running a business diminish.
There is no reason why you should be scared to run one.
Many young entrepreneurs in Mumbai and other big cities are going about their business without a clue about what they should and should not do, how to pay their employees, and what to do with the money.
There have been many cases of people who were told by their friends to shut up and do nothing.
It might be time to take a break.
Learn from your mistakes.
It has been my experience that people who are successful in their lives tend to make a lot of mistakes, especially in the beginning.
The only way to avoid those mistakes is to learn from them.
You can learn from your own mistakes.
For instance, you might start with an idea, and go from there.
This is why I have written this article, and it is also why I do not suggest that you do the same.
It would be wrong to take this advice for granted.
You will not have any success if you do.
If your idea is not a hit, then it will take time to figure out what is wrong with it, and fix it.
However (and this is what makes it so hard), it is not always clear when you need more time or a change in mindset.
Pay attention to your budget.
Most of the times, a budget will not change, but you might want to do some research to see if it is feasible.
If so, you can find out how much money you will spend on advertising, promotion, and other expenses in a year.
It could also help you to make some budget adjustments.
In fact, it could even be good for you to check your budget every month.
You might want more time to consider your needs,
