Make an empire, not a business.
If you want to be timeless, you have to be flexible.
The special thing about my company is that I don't have to start all over again if the situation requires a change in the business model or an expansion. I know the components of my business – outsourcing services, media services, e-commerce, to name a few. We can be versatile to do everything our customers need.
As an entrepreneur, you shouldn't limit your goals to a small corner shop that never grows beyond a single location. Think big like McDonalds. There are McDonalds and similar companies in almost every major city in the world.

Market awareness is vital. It is important to be constantly aware of changes in your target market and in the entire global business environment and to participate depending on the situation.
Here are tips to help you think big:
In your eyes, your company should be global and not limited to a small location. If you think globally, you will get ideas and a vision to reach that level.
In fact, your mind is as big (or tight) as you do it. Given the current global reach, online and offline, there is no reason why you shouldn't think globally.
Imagine your branch in every city in the world instead of thinking about your business in a small town.
Expand your offers
Don't limit yourself to one product or service. Amazon can sell both books and agricultural products. Nobody questions it when trying to drive in an electric car or anything else. Elon Musk can do space research, electric cars and online payment processing. Why shouldn't you have the same freedom?

The Internet enables you to be in many media and reach industry leaders far and wide. Why shouldn't you use it? There is no reason not to use every social media platform.
Put the fix in a box and lock it. No matter how small or seemingly insignificant your company is, do not let it stop you from presenting your message to global industry leaders.
The way your company presents itself should be impeccable. If you can make your customers 100% happy, make them 120% happy. If you can deliver 110% results, you deliver 200%.
Be in business to help customers
Make your customers' success your only goal when you offer a service or product. Ask yourself what my customer wants to achieve. And then make sure that what you deliver does it regardless of how much the customer paid or whether you provided the service for free.

I believe in the power of prayer. Prayer, combined with hope and gratitude, can do things that would otherwise not happen. When I started providing career services, I prayed that the business would be a success. The whole time. A few years later, I found that my customers were satisfied with the services, and we helped many of them find jobs in multinational companies – something I had never thought of at the time.
