Jack Ma’s Way of Creating Successful Online Business
The founder of Alibaba is Jack Ma. To me, Jack Ma came across as a humble down to earth man who lives by what he believed in . He always believed that as long as you don’t give up, you will see your sunshine one day. These wise words can be used in life in general and especially for anyone who wants to create successful online business just like Jack Ma.
I only came to learn more about Jack Ma from the videos I had found on the internet.
Despite coming from a poor background, Jack Ma still believed in his own ability. To improve his English language power, he offered to give free tour guide to tourists in his city.
Jack Ma had a fair share of disappointment even when he was younger. After college, Ma applied for 30 jobs in his home city of Hangzhou, China. He was rejected from his 30 jobs application. When he tried to apply for a job at KFC, 23 people was accepted for the job except for him.
Personally, I found Jack Ma to be a persuasive speaker with a vision. Yet being a teacher at heart, Jack always have the desire to teach back what he had learnt.
Success did not happen overnight for Jack Ma and here are the rules Jack Ma used for his success. You too can use these rules to build a successful business online.
1. Thinking Out of the Box
When you want to build a successful business online, you will prehaps do things out of your normal self. Quite often when you do not fit into a norm, people can sometimes describe you as crazy or eccentric.
Jack Ma is someone who thinks that crazy is good. Why is that so? He feels that if everyone believes in what you believe in , you probably will not have no chance because your idea is not outstanding enough.
You need to stand out from the crowd in order to be successful.

One of Jack’s teaching was to focus on the users. As long as your customer loves what you do, t was all that mattered.
2. Hire and Listen to Women
From online interviews, Jack Ma had shown his great respect for women. He believed that one of the secrets to his company ‘s success was because of his female employee. Women were able to give the personal touch and communication skills to help his company from growing.
Jack felt proud that more than 30% of senior management were women. The presence of women also created his company’s yin and yang balanced.
3. Traditional Education Is Not Everything
Jack Ma is someone who does not hire people based on which school they are from. He likes to hire base on someone’s spirit.
Likewise for someone who wants to have a successful business online, having with right spirit is crucial for one’s success.
Skill is something we can learn and pick up develop but attitude is something that tradition education cant provide. It has to come from one’s within.
If you are someone who desire to succeed, what matters is your learning spirit. With the right fighting spirit, you can always learn the right skills to aid you to the path of success.
