Starting Business in Pakistan? 33% Believes it is a Definite Way of Becoming Rich


Taking a risk in life is a statistical probability that can either bring success for you or can drive you toward path of failure. The Same rule also applies in the business. But in business, it is often noticed that high-risk always takes to high profitability and achievement if appropriate decisions taken at right time.


Business is about the experience and real knowledge. It is not about reading a book on swimming and after reading some pages diving into the pool to swim.

In Pakistani society, most of the people particularly youth always ruin after the government and multinational company job. It is not bad. Choices are open for all. But there are very few who dare to take the risk of starting their own business.

According to a recent survey by the Gallup Pakistan, only 33% Pakistanis believes that starting a personal business is the definite way to becoming rich. 25% believes that government white collar job also leads to the way of richness. Surprisingly, 21% attached the richness with a successful marriage.Starting Business in Pakistan
