    Anyone can be a businessman. A businessman is simply someone who provides a product or service in exchange for money.  If you decided to start selling lemonade outside in your front yard you would be considered a business man.

    Anybody can be a businessman but the trick is to be a successful one.  smile  There are many qualities needed to be a successful businessman but what comes to mind right at this moment is the sign that President Truman had on his desk that says, "The buck stops here."

    As an employee, it is easy to shirk responsibility and leave a problem for another person to solve.  But as a businessman, every buck stops on your desk and so, every problem in your business is your problem.

    I think that is one of the key characteristics of a successful businessman - the attitude that they are responsible for all the problems in their business.

    There is a pervading idea that entering into a business is a natural process, which requires no profound knowledge. It is falsely seen by many as a simple process of selling and buying at the right price, and persuading people that the products and services on offer fulfill their needs. In its essence, this statement is correct. However, over time business management has evolved into a more structured, planned,  informed, and highly measurable process.

    The basics of business should be taught at the high school level to provide young people with the knowledge to exercise the self-employment option at a later stage of their lives. Fortunately, there are many online sources for this type of education, which include Massive Open Online Courses MOOC's. Some online websites offer free tutorials and low cost business control packages that can be used for self education, or employed by schools as teaching guidelines for successfully operating a business.

    Although I agree with George, that business has great depth to it and it can be studied itself, having done that and worked in business what I feel I lacked was a product or service to apply with business knowledge to.

    This brings up the question of whether you're interested in business in the entrepreneurial sense; would you like to build your own business and watch it grow?

    Or do you want to do business to fulfil a business role in 'any company', possibly a bigger company than one you'd build yourself, which gives you a better opportunity to apply your knowledge of processes, accounting, human resources, quality or whatever else you've specialised in.

    In my case I wanted the first, but fell into the latter.

    I don't think studying business necessarily helps to achieve the former as they are skills you can enjoy learning along the way. Hopefully on some level some come naturally to you.

    Therefore to answer your question, I feel it comes down to following your interests and studying them (you hear it a lot, I know). Once you are a master of your trade, you can start to sell your own product or service, having an excellent understanding of it and doing what's best for your client.

    I think that first of all you should be a good manager. A good one is that who can delegate or outsource in time and make it successfully. I know a successful case with my friend who hired outsourcing software companies ukraine to make some development tasks and that was a lot cheaper. So that what I mean, your main skill should be managing and troubleshooting.
