Like most of you know, I've been employing myself for the past 9 months. Being a CEO of myself is not a big joke. This company had flourished in a blink of an eye. I need to be ultra-organized and ensure that the structure of my company instigates gradual development and implement cost-reduction measures. Aside from expecting a short period for ROI, my company implores in sustainable resources. A CEO therefore should have the eye for critical strategies to win and gain pertinent clients.
The main foundation of any company is their customer service. It's aim is to ensure NPS (net promoter score) target; the benchmark of which is their customer loyalty which in the sense cultivates new customers. The influx of customer can never be an issue for a company that capitalizes in strategy of marketing and investing. Therefore, it is a must that for any business, it should have that sense of relationship building, ergo, networking.
Ok, less seriously.
These are the limited thoughts I have about rudiments of business.
Its intricacies are carefully noted on business textbooks or manuals which I haven't got the chance to get hold on to. Those I noted in the first two paragraphs are things I learned from being an employee. It's key results (figures in $), I'll never get a chance to attest since I don't really have a company to run.
Our family agri-business is the closest I have for practice. The only limitation I have is that our business are not on it's peak this quarter, but certainly this coming summer.
So then I thought.
I kinda like cars. Not their engines, but their interiors and exteriors. I find it therapeutic to do car washing/waxing.
So viola, I'm planning to have a car wash shop. Oh, I want a salon too. I want guys to have make-over for themselves and at the same time, viewing their cars being shampooed.
But before I get lost in the black hole of my not-so-profound mind, I just realized a lot of things. These forceful musings derived from being unemployed got me to really thinking about being a businessman.
Being this kind of bum, makes me thinks everyday about balance sheets and income statements. I chanced upon stocks and investing too which I only thought will exist in my parallel universe.
Ok, I'm not that young. Not that old too. Being in my early 30s, I still feel the propensity to learn new industry skills.
What's my point then? Nothing really. Being a bum sucks ten times if you don't want to aspire or dream. It sucks if you don't have a goal.
How to be a professional bum? I have only one advice. Dedicate your time into translating yourself being a professional of something you love doing.
So what could you be?
I say, it doesn't matter, just as long you're in a haul of fulfilling your purpose.
