Business acumen is gained by knowledge. The old saying that
knowledge is power is so true in today's business world. Business
acumen can be gained by reading and studying but also by doing.
This site features business articles to help you get the book-learning
knowledge that you can take into action and apply in real-world
Business acumen is all about confident - real confidence. Business
acumen is not about arrogance or false pride. With knowledge
and experience and seeing positive results gained by your actions
comes confidence. Knowing what works and what doesn't is the
essence of business acumen. Some of this canned be learned by
reading what others have to say and seeing what others have
experienced and applying it to your own situation.
Business acumen means never having to say you didn't try. The
most savvy business people have tried and failed a thousand
times all in an effort to see what works and what doesn't. Learn
from those who have gone before you. Transfer their knowledge
into your situation and the business world will be yours. Acumen
means being savvy enough to take the knowledge you need for
the moment and leave the rest (for the time being).
By reading some of the articles on this website, you will develop
your business acumen and be able to share your knowledge with
others. The more you share, the more you are seen as a generous,
helpful and encouraging expert.
Not all experts in all fields make a lot of money. Not so in
business, though. With a little bit of business acumen in you,
you'll be able to turn your expertise into dollars.
Business acumen means knowing how to turn your role as an expert
into big bucks. And once you have the big bucks being an expert
you can make even bigger bucks telling others how to make their
fortunes as well. This is how some do it, so there's no reason
you can't earn the big bucks as well.
Once you've mastered the art of attaining business acumen,
then you become a teacher, my friend. And, teaching wealth-building
is not a bad business to be in.
In fact, those who teach through writing books, giving workshops
and presenting themselves online can make a very nice living,
indeed. Business acumen is about knowing what works, what doesn't
and when and how to change.
Of course there are many ways to build wealth. Some do while
others teach as the saying goes. With enough business acumen,
you can do one, the other or both and build your wealth through
sweat equity. But business acumen is not about working harder,
it's about working smarer. And, by working smarter, the world
is your oyster.
So, don't clam up and get out there and work smarter and use
those big brains you were given at birth and the business acumen
that's been acquired along the way. Who knows you may succeed
faster than you think.
