As someone who teaches others how to spot and take advantage of profitable business ideas, I’m very particular about the businesses I venture into.
I got into business a few years ago through my online business, and the profit margin witnessed from my online business was so astronomical that I made up my mind not to go into businesses that aren’t very profitable.
By rule, I only invest in businesses with a profit margin of up to 100% typically within a year or two; I can make exceptions and invest in businesses with a profit margin of around 50% if it requires large capital upfront and can yield returns within a short period of time (I mean, months).
This is the third article in the series, how to start a catfish farm, and I’ll be going over the requirements for starting a catfish farm.

If you want to build a successful business in this 21st century, you need to live by these rules; they’re kind of like the 10 commandments of building a successful business.
Before getting lost in the success and motivational stories of really successful businesses, it is important to come to terms with reality first; before you can focus on your startup, how do you cater to your immediate financial needs?

While more traffic isn’t necessarily synonymous with more revenue for your online business, the fact remains that traffic is always the starting point.
There are many ways to get traffic to your business website, and you’ve probably heard a lot of people recommend having a content marketing strategy or starting a blog at one point or the other. If you have been blogging for more than a few months now, though, you’ve already realized that this isn’t as easy as it is made to seem.
