What is Sustainability?

In my opinion Sustainability is the ability to survive in the future without harming the people around us. This means the ability to live on.

In business today, we all have the idea to live on to the next generation and so on.

Basically we have three dimensions of Sustainabilty:

  • Social Sustainability
  • Financial Sustainability
  • Environmental Sustainability
How can be apply the idea of Sustainabilty in online business?

      For me sustainability is to survive within your resources without harming others around you.

      Within resources means if you can't get something don't try to get it from illegal means, stay focused using what resources you have in hand.

      Once you sustain in this period then opportunities and resources will come towards you.

      My above wordings fit in on-line business as well, if we could survive initially without doing wrong means in on-line business then chances are bright that one day this sustainability give the desired result.

    I completely agree with Martin.

    Unless you're looking for a one time quick cash fix, and you're serious about developing a successful online empire, you really need to focus on the sustainability of your model.

      Totally agree. My income multiplied x5 as soon as I added a back-end structure to my front-end products.
