Everyone has a dream of being at the top of their field and being their boss. Be it through starting your own company, or franchising and taking on a big name, being an entrepreneur does have its perks. But while people may think that running a business is simply about doing something that you love, running a successful business takes a lot more than you might think.
One of the first traits that a person on their way to starting up their own business should possess is determination. Starting a business is by no means easy. Big companies that you see today and which are commonly known to everyone did not turn into that overnight. There was a lot of hard work, turmoil, and most importantly, determination to see their plans through and work hard at them.
One example of a well-known businessman who underwent great challenges to be able to one day run his businesses is Jose Hawilla. Hawilla is currently an entrepreneur and owns his sports marketing agency known as Traffic. He always possessed a great love for sports and wanted to be able to make a living for himself one day, doing something that was related to sports. He did face a lot of oppression because of his goals, and because they weren’t conventionally what people perceived as a successful field.
At the beginning of his career, he started working as a reporter for the sports column of a well known Brazilian newspaper. He loved his job, but always was determined to get more out of it and one day become successful with his passion for sports. He worked his way up the ranks to one day reach one of the top executive positions of the company. Just when he thought he had made it, he was asked to leave the company because he supported a protest that was advocating workers rights. Just when he had reached the top, it felt like his career was taken away from him.
But Jose Hawilla did not let that get him down. He decided to do what he wanted to do all his life finally. He started Traffic, which is a company that caters to sports marketing, which is now worth millions, making Hawilla a truly huge success. You can visit YouTube to see more videos.
