Who here likes Korean Drama? If you like K-Drama, you must be familiar with this one series. Yes, the Start-Up that just finished a few months ago has become trending in Indonesia, in addition to the storyline that is very relevant today, the cast has also succeeded in winning over the audience. By the way, are you #TeamNamDosan or #TeamHanJiPyeong?
Apart from an exciting storyline, it turns out that there are many things that can be taken from the Start-Up Drama, if you want to start a business or build a business, of course you will really need this. So what lessons can you imitate from the Start-Up Drama for your business and business? Here we will discuss these 5 lessons.
1. Dare To Get Started
Nam Do-san was very serious and persistent when they started Samsan Tech, their unyielding spirit and strong determination finally succeeded in convincing investors with the business model offered by startup Samsan Tech.
Samsan Tech's business among startups is known as Software As A Service (Saas). Well, Saas as a preferred business model for startups is also widely practiced in Indonesia, currently Saas is indeed being attracted by many investors.
If you are serious about starting a business, of course you have to dare to start and don't delay, good planning, and a mature strategy can make your business run well.
2. Don't be proud
If you feel confused about where to start a business, and there is no capital, or if you really want to enrich your experience in the world of work, you can imitate what Seo Dal-mi did.
Dal-mi enthusiastically started working parttime here and there to help her grandmother selling corndogs. Besides having dreams of becoming a CEO, she did this because she really didn't want to lose to her brother who had the privilege of "rich kid" from her stepfather.
The fact that Dal-mi is only a high school graduate and has limited costs, does not in fact make her give up and keep trying until she finally becomes CEO. Well, if you really want to be successful, of course you have to start with enthusiasm from yourself, and don't forget, don't be proud.
3. Strong, does not give up easily, and always gets up
In fact, Han Ji-pyeong was originally just a high school student who lived in an orphanage, even from childhood he didn't know who his parents were, his life was made worse when the orphanage he lived in went bankrupt and he was confused about where to live.
His life gets a little better when he meets his grandmother Dal-mi who helps him a lot. Ji-pyeong is smart and skilled at playing stocks, he finally uses the profits from playing the shares to study in Seoul and finally succeeds.
Now if we look at him, we must think that Ji-pyeong is someone who has a high position and a lot of money, but who would have thought that behind all that there was a hard struggle, determination, and enthusiasm to finally lead to success.
4. Make other people's criticism to burn your enthusiasm
In doing a business, of course we will find a lot of obstacles, including various talk that will reach our ears, of course the words that are conveyed are different, can be positive or negative things.
In the Start-Up series, Samsan Tech which consists of Nam Do-san, Kim Yong-san, Lee Chul-san has received several harsh criticism from Han Ji-pyeong regarding their efforts, but the harsh criticism actually turned into a fire of enthusiasm and in the end. repaid with success.
Or about Seo Dal-mi who received words from her brother, Won In-jae, who said that Dal-mi would not be able to be successful and happy if she chose to follow her father. That word turns out to be reversed by success because finally Dal-mi becomes CEO.
5. Don't forget those who helped a lot
And this is perhaps the most important, we must not forget the people who are around us when we are struggling below, because maybe without them, the business we run may never reach the point of development, let alone progress.
In the Start-Up series, Han Ji-pyeong, who has had great success, comes back to Dal-mi's grandmother to return the favor, or Kim Yong-san who thanks Han Ji-pyeong for his sharp criticism because without that criticism Samsan Tech would never go forward.
In closing, maybe this lesson is what we often forget, as humans we are social and of course we still need help from others, therefore it is important for us to remember that we are not alone, there will always be people who love and care about us.
