What Does “Setting up a Business” Really Mean?

What does “setting up a business” really mean? In a literal sense, it means to start a new business, however, in order to start a business, what is really required of you?

The requirements for starting up a business generally include; the following of complex procedures, raising of funds, cultivating the market as well as understanding the management know-how and hiring employees and using POS system also.

Since this is a lot to do in the beginning, it lead me to believe that the endeavor of starting up a business was pretty much impossible. However, after searching on the topic of “starting-up” a business, I found something more important.

I found out that you need to have; a strong motivation, fortitude (patience), strong will, a clear life plan or goal, aspirations as well as curiosity and many more qualities. These internal aspects are more important than those of the external aspects that were mentioned earlier, of course, setting up a business is not something others do for you, rather, it is something you must start on your own.

Therefore, if there are any problems, you would have to solve them by yourself. If you have these internal aspects firm within yourself, then you can have the willpower to overcome any difficulties that may come. This fact, i’m sure doesn’t only relate to setting up businesses.

Setting up a business is not an easy task, but this opportunity has given me time to think about what is most important in handling different situations.

The opportunity may be irrelevant to me now, but when making a clear life plan or goal, the enhancement of my curiosity may eventually lead to “setting up a business” in the future.
 

“起業する”ということは、どういうことなのか。簡単に言えば新しく自分で事業を起こす事ですが、本当に始めようとするには何が必要なのか?

いろいろな手続、資金調達、販路開拓、経営ノウハウ、従業員の雇用…これだけで無理そうだなと思ってしまいましたが…起業について調べてみると、何より大切な事がありました。それは「強く高い志、忍耐力、精神力、明確な人生プラン(目標)を持つこと、向上心、好奇心…」等、先に上げた外的な事の前に内面的な事の方が大切だということでした。確かに起業は誰かがしてくれるものでもなく、一から自分で立ち上げていくものです。問題が起こればその対応も自分がしなければなりません。しかしそういう時も内面的にしっかりしていれば乗り越えようと思えます。これは起業に限らず大切な事ですね。

起業は簡単な事ではないですが、それに関わらず何をするにおいても必要な事が何なのかを考える機会となりました。

自分には関係がないと思っていても、人生プランや目標、好奇心等を高めていった時にそれが自然に”起業”になるのではないかと思いました。
