What do you think is the single biggest misconception people have when it comes to startups?
Startups are enterprises that are established to fulfill a dream. When the startup successful you make money. The main goal should not be to make money, but to realize your dream. The money will come anyway.
When you have a dream you should work for it, realise it then if you are correct to think your dream will help people and you present this help to people approprite way your startup will success.
But you should not forget all successfull startups hides x100 unsuccesfull startup behind them.
Sometimes people thinks that to make money lets build a startup. So what will we do? We don’t know. Lets think about it. Lets find a subject. This doesnt work.
If you could go back in time to any moment from your journey, and give yourself one tip, what would it be?
Two tips for me are To start early, and to find believer, hardworker partner. “Learnforbusiness” has been a dream I’ve been thinking about for 22 years.
But I had to wait 20 years to spend time on this, which was a mistake. If I had started earlier, I would have come a long way by now. Another mistake was to start alone for this startup.
Finding a hardworking partner with whom I could share the same dream would have allowed me to progress faster and further.
What makes you stand out as an entrepreneur?
I think what makes me stand out as an entrepreneur is to work continuously by investing without ever earning, without giving up, without losing sight of my goal.
I also think it is an advantage that I have been in the industry for years as a manager and have experienced the fundamentals of learnforbusiness. I also know what’s going to happen and what isn’t, because of past software coding experience.
What are some of the best working habits you’ve gained over the past couple of years?
Since I had worked for years in the past, I already had a working habit of sitting at work every day and not wasting time.
Also, due to my experience and company consultancy, I already have a certain work routine and a list of things to consider. These are the management of cash flow, such as keeping potential customers and customer needs in constant consideration
Give us a bit of an insight into the influences behind the company?
Our world has limited resources. We must use these resources efficiently. The way to do this is to use the right techniques and work efficiently while working. We as Learnforbusiness were established to teach these techniques.
Where do you see your business in five years?
There are a lot of competitor in e-learning industry we are targeting to be one of top 10 in business e-learning industry.
What do you think the biggest challenge will be for you in getting there?
Language will be challenge because learnforbusiness is a Turkish company and our native language is Turkish. But we have to serve in English.
