    Everyone dreams. But only the truly exceptional possess the dedication and creativity to turns those dreams into a reality. Such truly exceptional people are known as entrepreneurs. These people introduce a radical new idea into the pool of over-used and copy pasted notions. Entrepreneurs are the architects of the constantly changing and improving society.

    What makes an entrepreneur?

    This is a question everyone has thought of when watching the success of well known entrepreneurs like DhirubaiAmbani, Bill gates, Narayan murthy etc. Passion, creativity, imagination, innovation and an unrelenting drive to succeed are the qualities that set an entrepreneur aside from the rest of the crowd. Out of the box thinking and a sense of showmanship goes a long way in todays competitive market.

    Budding entrepreneurs must possess the tenacity to succeed no matter what the harsh world might throw at them. A strong sense of self respect, confidence and good principles cultivated from an early age is a very important factor that influences the thought process of any entrepreneur. The tendency to conform to societys norms is automatic. Any person wishing to climb the ladder of success as an entrepreneur has to break free of this tendency and have the ability to look at things from different perspective. One of the most important aspects of an entrepreneurs success is the idea. This little four letter word is the cornerstone and the motivation for any venture. In order for any venture to reach its full potential, you must believe in the idea 100%. Any job half done is a waste of both time and effort. Plan well and assemble a trusted team to help you. More minds thinking on the same idea helps hone it to a perfect shape.

    Risk Taking is Important Too

    But one cannot ignore the very high risk factor. The chances of failure are ever present. Think with a practical mind. Take into consideration all the factors of your life that may be affected by what you choose to pursue and whether you can afford the risk. Your wallet is most likely the spot most affected. Be sure to think before you invest.

    Any entrepreneur who is revered in his field can tell you: There is no formula for success. Success is three parts hard work and one part chance. A life as an entrepreneur is alluring and exciting. A true entrepreneur has the all-consuming desire to see their dreams turn to reality and is bold enough to push the limits of human potential could bring about unprecedented changes in the society. That person could be you!

    Entrepreneurs are born, not made, but thirst for freedom is the spark that ignites.”
    — Wilson Harrell

    What does it take to become a successful entrepreneur in today’s business world? Well, there are many giants of business you could ask, but you would be hard pressed to find anyone better than Wilson Harrell. Read about a country boy who became a marketing guru and entrepreneur. He is quite simply a business legend.

    Born in Georgia, 1919, Wilson Harrell, world renowned entrepreneur and marketing guru was a man of strong conviction. In his great business journey, he lived a glamorous life all through. Not all know that Wilson was a fighter pilot in World War II and received Purple heart, Air medal with 4 oak leaves and also the President Citation.

    It all began with Wilson Harrell & Company started by Wilson himself after the war. The company distributed Kraft products to huge military PX market and in very less time the company sales reached $200 million. But Wilson had other ideas, he sold the distribution company. Then he bought Formula 409, a household cleaner product company for $30,000 and turned it around. He later sold the company for $7 million and bought 60 food brokerage companies whose total sale exceeded $500 million.

    All in all, Wilson started over 100 companies and turned around a few. He was voted America’s no.1 columnist for the year 1995 and 1996 by the American society of Business for his monthly contribution to the Success Magazine. Wilson was also the past publisher of INC. magazine.

    Along with being the Founder/Chairman of council of growing companies, nationwide organization, Wilson was also the leader and voice of entrepreneur’s movement in America. His book “For Entrepreneurs Only” was a bestseller and still one of the most admired in this genre.

    In his book, he discussed the hunters and farmers of cave man age. He reasoned from science and a variety of studies that genes are passed down and often entrepreneurs are the children of entrepreneurs. At some point thousands of years ago, entrepreneurs were the hunters of our world while the farmers tend to be employees.

    He enjoyed great success in life and died in 1997 at the age of 78 from lung cancer.

    “I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried
    I’ve had my fill, my share of losing
    And now the tears subside
    I find it all so amusing
    To think-I did it all that
    And may I say
    Not in a shy way
    Oh no, oh no not me, I did it my way”

    One of the steps you will need to learn as you are growing as an entrepreneur is how to position yourself as an entrepreneur. While this may not seem all that difficult to accomplish, without the proper attitude it can become a bit of a challenge.

    To position oneself as an entrepreneur is as much a matter of mental attitude as anything else. It is about thinking and acting like an entrepreneur. Some would say that you have to eat, breathe, and sleep your business. While this may seem a little over the top, if you are serious about your success it’s not far from the truth.

    In many instances the difference between success and failure comes down to the person’s willingness to do whatever it takes to be successful. That means that you need not only focus on promoting your business, but also in positioning yourself as the leader of that business.

    You need to remember that in the early stages of a business you and your business are the same thing. The people around you will not think of your businesses without thinking of you as well. The pitfall of that attitude is that some new business owners will promote their business during business hours, and then they try to separate themselves from the business when they leave the workplace.

    When you position yourself as an entrepreneur you are approaching the situation with the understanding that a business owner I who and what you are. There is not a real separation when you leave the office; you and your business are still the same.

    Successful business people find themselves setting goals for their business, dreaming about their business, working through issues with the business, and even promoting their business at all hours of the day. Leaving the office just means that they are changing locations, but they are still working on their business. They don’t mind doing it because it is a passion and they love what they are doing.

    You have to understand that when you take on a new client for your business, they are coming not only because of the products and services that your company offers; they are coming because of what you as the owner of the business are offering. If they do not believe you are committed to what you are doing, they will not have the confidence in your business that is necessary. If they believe in you, they will buy into what you are selling.

    If you are truly serious about being successful with your business you will need to learn how to position yourself as an entrepreneur. You need to break free of the mindset of acting like an employee and only working on your business during working hours. You need to learn to promote yourself along with your business. After all, in the beginning stages, you are all that will keep that business alive.

    The typical online entrepreneur is a different species insofar as they generally work alone and within an industry that can be very stressful and demanding. Being your own boss is great however many are prone to second thoughts about this when they find that everything’ is their responsibility! Without physical, or often times, moral support, people working online have to reach deep within themselves for the strength or motivation to get the job done. Obviously those who succeed on the internet have mastered the ‘art form’ of learning how to motivate themselves! Learning how to get motivated however always has its roots in a very strong reason as to ‘why’ it is people are working online! It is the ‘why’ of every entrepreneur that ultimately keeps them moving forward!

    Here are the 3 biggest ‘whys’ entrepreneurs use when learning how to motivate themselves in order to maintain the drive necessary to succeed on the internet.

    Money

    Always a big motivator, money is one of the most ‘popular’ reasons people market on the internet. Whether it is for need or perhaps to expand an already existent ‘offline’ business earning or increasing an income is a powerful and popular force for people to be working online.

    Passion

    Some people have taken advantage of the easy to use and inexpensive internet platform to pursue a personal passion. Whether it is a cause, hobby or perhaps a business idea, if it is fueled by passion there is little doubt that these people will lack motivation.

    Lifestyle

    Most internet businesses involve working online from home or actually anywhere one may choose and this is a very attractive option. In addition, the potential for earning a significant income is very real due to the access you have to a global audience, on a 24/7 basis no less! A lifestyle like this is hard to ignore and even harder to not strongly desire! Even working longer hours is not an issue since you can pick and choose where and when you work!

    As we have spoken about here today the typical online entrepreneur must absolutely posses some strong motivations in order to be successful working online. Due to the ‘isolated’ nature of internet marketing, individuals must learn how to get motivated and stay that way without the help or support of others. For this reason their motivations need to be strong and lasting and 3 of the most common motivations people have for working online are reviewed above. As you can see any of these 3 factors that drive people to succeed on the internet are very strong. It is an absolute must however that the individual has the great ‘desire’ or ‘need’ first or they will not be able to sustain their efforts and achieve success.

    There are three business arrangements in Singapore that have been specifically created for foreign entrepreneurs and business entities planning to have a presence in the country: a subsidiary company, branch office, and representative office.

    These are the basic differences between these business entities for foreign entrepreneurs and investors:

    1. Subsidiary company

    This is probably the most ideal business entity for foreign companies planning to form a Singapore company or expand their presence in the country. This is because this formation provides countless of benefits especially when it comes to tax incentives and limited liability.

    As a separate legal entity from its parent company, a subsidiary company may have a different name and is allowed to conduct any business activities in the country as long as these are legal.

    A foreign company with a subsidiary company enjoys a limited liability, an arrangement in which it is not liable for any losses, liabilities, and debts of its Singapore auxiliary business.

    And because a subsidiary company is incorporated in Singapore, it also enjoys local tax benefits even if it is 100 percent owned by foreign businessmen and entities.

    However, this business setup is required to appoint at least one resident director who may be a Singaporean citizen or holder of EntrePass, Employment Pass, or Permanent Residence Status.
    Meawhile, a subsidiary company may have one to 50 shareholders who may be a foreign or local individual or another business entity. To know more abour subsiday company follow this link:

    2. Branch office

    A branch office, being an extension of its business headquarter, is only allowed to conduct activities performed by its parent company.

    Unlike a subsidiary company, a branch office is not provided with local tax benefits since it is treated as a legal extension of its parent company. And with this arrangement, the headquarter is directly liable for all the losses, debts, and liabilities of its Singapore branch office.

    Meanwhile, it is a legal requirement for a branch office to hire two Singaporean resident agents who will oversee its business operation.

    When it comes to government-imposed disclosure requirements, this business entity may not be appealing for some shareholders since they are also required to submit the audited accounts of their parent company. To know more about branch office, follow this link:

    3. Representative office

    Legally speaking, a representative office is not really a business entity as it is not allowed to engage in any revenue-generating activities.

    A representative office is generally ideal for foreign companies who are not yet sure of the business viability of their services or goods in Singapore and want to conduct an extensive market research before engaging in a full-blown operation. To know more about representative office, follow this link:

    When we talk of management education, we are basically referring to shaping up the students, aimed towards developing their competency and capability either as a manager fit to join an organization and help it to grow or as entrepreneur, to establish and grow ones own business. This capability does not come from possessing a management diploma or degree, but also requires developing in the students the will and skill to contribute for self sustenance and nation building. Presently it is seen, that there is a wide gap existing between the type of management education imparted in MBA colleges and what is there in real life management in business organizations. In order to make management education more realistic and useful for the industry, certain key areas need to be identified. These could be:-

    (a)Benchmarking quality management education to create an enduring quality managers and entrepreneurs.
    (b)Bring in professionalism in management education.
    (c)Adequacy of qualified and competent faculty members, proper infrastructure, support facilities and regular updating of curriculum.

    Benchmarking Quality Management Education

    Benchmarking with the top management colleges inspires an institute to produce quality managers. Management education needs to include knowledge, skills and abilities (KSA) that are needed today and that will be needed tomorrow by the industry. The mission of management education should be to become innovative and creative. The objectives of benchmarking should be to:-
    Make own students employable in industry.
    Moving the institute from academic mode to corporate mode. To achieve these objectives the agenda should be:- (a) To identify the industry expectations of the skill sets required of students. (b)To identify the areas of Total Quality Management (TQM) in management education. (c) To identify the changes required in teachers imparting management education.

    Professionalism in MBA/PGDM Education

    There are many reasons for the wide differences in the quality of management education in different institutes in India. The main reason is the absence of a body that can ensure that the standards set are practiced and retained by all management institutes, like AACSB in USA. We do have an apex body the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), that is responsible for setting the basic framework, guidelines and standards for quality of business education, there are however many problems when it comes implementation of these standard by MBA colleges and institutes and these problems undermine the effectiveness of these standards. In order install quality in management education in India, the AICTE and MBA colleges / universities in the country should focus on the following issues:-
    Quality of faculty.
    Infrastructure development.
    Accountability of management institutes.
    Values and ethics.
    Role of professional bodies (AIMA, ISTD, etc).
