Facebook, like all other businesses, started with an idea that an ambitious person formulated and executed. Zuckerberg is no Einstein and let’s admit it, Facebook is not a revolutionary idea that changed the world. However, we are now all sucked into it, making Facebook a part of the most valuable sites on the World Wide Web.
There are a number of factors that contributed to Mark Zuckerberg’s success and these included experience, leadership, funding, timing, and the right execution.
Below are just some of the lessons Zuckerberg has in his sleeve:
- Stay passionate with what you do – Doing something that you like is enough to push you towards the path of success. Staying interested in what you are working on will give you an endless supply of inspiration and creativity to bring the consumers exactly what they want. The truth is, a lot of entrepreneurs lack this factor and don’t have an idea of the potential it could give them if they practice it.
- Analysis and evaluation is the key – There are basically two types of businessman in the world: those who analyze every little detail, and those who do everything based on gut instinct. Each has its own pros and cons, and its effectiveness depends on the person executing it. However, combining the two can help contribute to gaining the maximum effect and profit in business.
- Don’t be afraid to experiment – Mark Zuckerberg preferred to push the limits and try new things with Facebook. Since a lot of people relied on Facebook more than the other websites, failure is not an option for its founder. Until now, Mark isn’t afraid to try new things for the sake of improving the website.
