Very few people want to work for bosses. However few people can afford to be their own boss. It isn’t easy and takes a lot of hard work to become your own boss or to get to the point where you don’t really have one boss, just equals.


However there is two ways this can happen, hard work from inside a company or secondly, you could be an entrepreneur and start your own business. Being an entrepreneur requires many things that may seem difficult but at the same time, the requirements seem lacking.



Do you know what qualification you need to start a business? Nothing!

You don’t need a degree you don’t need a diploma or certificate none of that is necessary.

Now a degree or diploma may help if you are starting out and applying for financial aid but there are examples of many great people succeeding without degrees.

A few examples are:

  • Bill Gates


  • Mark Zuckerberg


  • Steve Jobs (When Steve Jobs first dropped out of college he recycled cans to make get by)


Just because these successful people dropped out doesn’t mean that you have too or that you necessarily should. This just goes to show how you don’t need a degree to be successful. Now we know what someone doesn’t need to be a successful entrepreneur let’s look at what he does need.


The first thing is to do what you enjoy. Starting a business that has the foundation of something you love. This will motivate you to care more about the business and work harder to make sure it is successful; in this regard it is better to focus on passion then just pure money.


However you do need to start a business that will make money and have an income, research all your options thoroughly and make sure you are providing something that consumers want or need. This doesn’t necessarily have to be new but if it is similar to others businesses you need diversity as well as be able to compete with your rivals.


A business is all about the customer, knowing your customer, what they want and how to appeal to your customer. This means that you need to know your target market. The age group of who you appeal to what fluctuations in their income will cause and how this will affect your business.

Also you need to know how to advertise to your target audience. Obviously as the business grows you will hire people to help you with the day-to-day running marketing and so forth of the business but in the beginning when designing the structure of your business you need to know how to appeal to consumers from the beginning.

Finally be organised and delegate.

A business needs to be organised knowing where everything is, is important. Never try to be the sole person in charge of your business you can’t do everything yourself therefore hire people to work for you and delegate responsibilities. These tips should give you a better chance to succeed.

If all else fails there is another solution:



College SA has Small Business Management Courses that can guide you and equip you to start your own business successfully.

Good luck!

Human Resource Management is becoming an increasingly popular career choice. One of the reasons why HR Management is so appealing is that the skills that you learn can be applied across various industries. In other words, an HR Management qualification can open up many doors for you.

What does Human Resource Management involve?

Human Resource (HR) Management involves hiring and training employees, and making sure that staff is motivated at all times.

One of the main reasons that companies need an HR team is to ensure productivity in the workplace.

HR Managers are responsible for retaining the most capable and skilled employees, so that the company can function effectively and be profitable.

What are the duties of HR Managers?

HR Managers:

  • Delegate and monitor duties.
  • Regulate levels of productivity.
  • Co-ordinate different tasks to ensure that the end goal is achieved.
  • Analyse and implement strategies to increase the efficiency of a company or organisation.
  • Determine the overall success of a company by interpreting outputs at a basic level.

Why is HR Management a good career choice?

Businesses aim for maximum success. In order to achieve this, they rely on skilled, efficient, reliable and motivated employees. HR Managers ensure that such employees are retained.

Because the corporate world is growing at a phenomenal rate, increasingly more qualified Human Resource Managers are needed.

Being a Manager

Managers… and the unique skills they posses 

Have you ever wondered about what sort of skills managers need and use every day?


Most of us have worked for a manager at some time or another in our lives, and we can probably all agree, it is NOT an easy job.


Managers have to demonstrate a specific set of skills and abilities to perform their duties successfully. Some people think this set of specific skills comes naturally, but we disagree.


Studying a Management Course is a great way of learning, or improving the skills you already have, with the goal of becoming an awesome manager.


Managers are usually employees who have displayed an exceptional set of skills, and have been noticed by the higher levels of the business..


We have listed a few of the top skills and abilities companies are always on the lookout for:


  • They have good communication and interpersonal skills.
  • They are able to show empathy towards others.
  • They have the ability to motivate a team.
  • They can think critically, and are good at solving problems.
  • They have strategic planning skills.
  • They have good time management skills.
  • They are flexible, and can adapt well to change.
  • They are well-organised.
  • They are able to take the initiative when the situation requires it.
  • They have basic financial skills.


Still think these skills all come naturally without any training?
