Success Topic 11 focuses on building a part-time business. You probably know that many very successful businesses today started as part-time businesses such as: Papa John’s, Twitter, Yankee Candle, Craig’s List, and Gibson Guitar Co., just to name 5 that started as part-time or side jobs by budding entrepreneurs. Some of them started with very little cash and some started because the entrepreneurs were out of cash. Many part-time businesses developed because an entrepreneur detected a need that was not being fulfilled and decided to develop a small niche business to fill that need. In contrast, many businesses that start large, see a need being fulfilled and form to take advantage of the already existing market with their own product and marketing plan and business strategy.
All the basic business principles, in this course, apply equally to full-time businesses or part-time businesses.
