Individuals who saw the opportunity of the Internet and the world wide web realized the importance of learning and working within the quickly growing industry. These individuals were able to see the significant opportunity and capitalize on it. A lot of companies in the early 1990’s came and went but money changed hands at a rapid pace and value was built over time. Individuals such as Mark Cuban, Chris Sacca, Gary Vaynerhuck, Tim Ferris, Seth Godin, Ramit Sethi, Semil Shah, Marc Andreessen, Paul Graham, Mark Zuckerberg, and many others dug in deep into the technology business sector and were able to contribute and realize significant value because of their efforts in the space.
We can’t of course, forget visionaries such as Steve Jobs and Bill Gates or even current titans of industry such as Elon Musk are tackling the energy sector either. All of these individuals gravitated toward the technology sector early on and were able to find joy in pursuing opportunities such as Microsoft, Dell computers and other services and sectors such as Groupon that have made an interesting difference in the lives of consumers across the globe.
Thanks to people who had a vision and believed many are able to improve their lives in more ways than one. These leaders started off with a simple idea, conducted domain name acquisition and went on to execute in other aspects of the business as well. The tales of these individuals who have participated in the startup and online industries are fascinating and it is certainly worth getting into but it is important to remember that success in startup land hinges a few key aspects. These aspects are product/market fit, the ability of the entrepreneur to execute and continuously overcome challenges while keeping a positive mental attitude.
What to Pay Attention To As a Potential Internet Entrepreneur
As noted above, if you don’t have a product that people do not want with regard to the right product market fit, you will not be able to be successful. Companies such as Airbnb did not know for a fact that people would have wanted their product but they saw an opportunity for individuals to be able to save money and earn income as well.
These two key aspects helped them to keep pressing on despite different challenges that they faced in their careers, despite the no’s that they received, and despite other obstacles that were hurled in their direction by life and governments. Individuals who are not able to overcome the many obstacles that life will likely throw at them while they are seeking to help change industries and make life better for consumers everywhere will not be able to survive and thrive in a tough business environment. It is up to the individual to know the different angles and how to navigate turbulent times, they will likely not have the sympathy of various individuals or partners as they work on their own respective problems. The entrepreneur must always seek to advance and press on despite problems and make incremental to significant changes that bring about positives for all involved.
