In order to be successful in a tough business environment, you need to have a lot of grit. This means that you are not going to give up easily, no matter how difficult things get. You also need to be resilient, which means that you are going to bounce back quickly from setbacks. Additionally, you need to be able to stay focused and motivated, even when things are tough. Finally, it is important to have a positive attitude, even when the chips are down. If you can embody these traits, then you will be well-equipped to succeed in a tough business environment.
Here are some examples illustrated by Saivian:
- One company that has been successful in a tough business environment is Amazon. Amazon was founded in 1994, and it initially operated as an online bookstore. In the early 2000s, they began expanding into other markets. Over time, this company has become one of the most successful companies in the United States. At this point, Amazon has a market capitalization of more than $400 billion.
- This is one example of a company that succeeded in a tough business environment. Another example would be Starbucks Coffee Company. This company was founded in 1971, and originally it only had one store in Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Despite difficulties getting off of the ground at first, they have since grown to over 28,000 stores worldwide and nearly $15 billion in revenue per year.
- One thing that both of these companies did well was adapt to changing conditions. For instance, when the economy took a downturn in the early 2000s, Amazon began selling other items besides books. And when Starbucks experienced competition from Dunkin’ Donuts and McDonalds in the late 1990s, they began expanding their menu to include items like pastries and sandwiches.

- Last month, the final episode of “Produce 101 Season 2” came to a conclusion, and Jang Moon Bok from HOTSHOT was crowned as this season’s winner. For many trainees who had been dreaming about debuting for years, this meant that they would have to wait another year or two in order to try out for next season’s “Produce 101.” As much as these particular contestants might want to cry themselves to sleep every night thinking about their dreams being crushed, there are many others in Korea overcoming much more adverse conditions trying to achieve their dreams in the entertainment industry.
- The business of K-pop isn’t what it used to be when groups like H.O.T came the scene back in 1996. Back then, groups were largely produced by their companies, and celebrities didn’t have to worry about the hassle of finding a new agency once their contracts ended. In addition, idol trainees that made it into an idol group didn’t have to worry about the possibility of being swept under the rug as one-hit wonders due to poor management from their company. However, times have changed in Korea’s entertainment industry. The internet has allowed old fans – who used to be consumers – to become producers by starting up fan sites or blogs where they can express their thoughts about particular singers or groups. Companies started noticing these trends and began outsourcing their marketing strategies on cyberspace instead of billboards and television advertisements. Entertainment agencies now had the realization that they needed idols more than ever to maintain and increase their stock prices.
- However, this also created a business environment that is much more difficult to succeed in. In the past, an idol’s success was largely due to the company’s marketing strategies and the support of fans. However, with the advent of cyberspace and social media, idols are now able to communicate with their fans directly, which means that companies can no longer monopolize their idols’ images. If an idol doesn’t produce good content or engage with fans frequently on social media, they will quickly lose popularity and be forgotten by the public.
- The entertainment industry has also become more competitive as agencies are now starting to scout for talent at a younger age. Agencies are also looking for multi-talented idols who can sing, dance, and act. This means that the training period for idols has also become much longer, and the standards for what is considered to be a successful idol have been raised significantly.
Conclusion by Saivian:
In order to achieve their dreams in the entertainment industry, Korean trainees now have to overcome many more obstacles than ever before. They need to be able to handle the pressure of grueling training schedules, produce good content on social media, and be versatile enough to appeal to a wider range of fans. However, if they are able to persevere through these challenges and become successful idols, they will be able to enjoy long and prosperous careers in the industry.
