If you really don’t want to move ahead with your college business, here are some easy steps to ruin it:
Never plan. Although making plans is one of the keys not only to business success but also to good academic performance, don’t plan.
Be as unavailable to your customers as possible. Don’t answer their calls at first ring so they won’t call anymore.
Buy an ad in the yellow pages. It’s very expensive and people rarely use it.
Give big discounts as though you’re a big mall owner. Give in easily when your friends joke for a big discount. Thinking that deflating your charge fees or prices below your flattest rate will bring good luck to your business would definitely ruin your business.
Surround yourself with negative people.
Stick to the way you’ve always done your business. Don’t adjust for your customers’ demands. Even if the competition is getting tougher, do not innovate.
Complain back when customers complain. Do not welcome customers’ complaints about your service. Don’t admit your mistakes or even look at their complaints as a way of improving your business.
Don’t train yourself. Expose yourself to areas of knowledge that do not interest you or have the remotest connection to your business.
Mix personal and business stuff. Confuse academics, personal, and business things together. Practice more disorganization.
Be deaf to other people’s advice. Don’t listen especially to those who have made it far out in the business field. Also, don’t learn from those who have made wrong decisions in business.
Focus on many goals. Or better yet, don’t focus on anything at all. Concentrating on making your business a hit and being a successful college entrepreneur would surely steer your decision-makings toward it, so don’t do so.
Don’t update yourself. Avoid surfing the Internet for business research. You wouldn’t want to get more ideas to better your business.
Forget about your cash flow. This is the best thing to do because a stable financing only makes your business stay afloat. Don’t beef up your back up capital. You can also opt to maintain your debts.
Do all these things and we assure you, your business will be down the drain in no time!
