How to Succeed in Business

In addition to flexibility, expertise is vital to succeeding in business. An article in a recent Entrepreneur magazine, "Why You Need More Than Passion to Succeed in Business," points out six fundamentals for success in business — including resilience, resourcefulness and urgency — but the number one trait is expertise. Your first priority in business, says the author, "is to establish an area of expertise or core competency that will enable you to distinguish yourself from your peers and let your reputation permeate the marketplace."
