Everyone wants to know the key to having a successful business. Some people believe that there’s one major thing that, if they learn and master, will give them absolute success in their business.

The truth of the matter is that there’s no one thing that leads to business success.

However, there are ways to understand success, business, and how to get ahead. Business is ART offers ways for you to apply our methods to a business to help it get ahead.

Hard Work is Key

Everything in life requires work—there’s no such thing as a free pass. If there’s a single key to business success, it’s hard work. The Business is ART model doesn’t help you avoid putting in some time on your business, but it does teach you how to make that time effective.

You don’t want to waste time doing something that’s not going to help your business move forward. Why would you? Instead, the BIA mission will help you become more successful by doing work in the right areas and in the right way.


The next major key to business success is planning. This is one of the main focuses of the Business is ART book (found here). Many business owners do not have a formal business plan.

With the Business is ART book; you’ll learn how to create a business plan that is smart, realistic, and tailored to your business. Without this guiding document, it can be hard to focus on what’s important to your business. If you can’t do that, you can’t effectively grow without using a lot of unnecessary resources, time, and energy.

Using Online Business Plans

Some new business owners look online for a business plan for a business similar to theirs and simply use it for their own. While looking online for business plans can be a good way to see what a business plan looks like, you have to remember that your business is not the same as any other business—it will differ not only by what you sell but also by your location, target demographic, prices, specials, and more.

If you’re new to the business world, however, looking at these business plans may tell you nothing. Some of the templates, instructions, and tips are not for the newcomer, which means you may end up even more confused after looking at online business plans and tools. You need something that speaks to you.
