Commercial entrepreneurship is developing very rapidly in Russia. The principle of its organization is quite different from the production one, because the entrepreneur here does not produce material values, but only sells finished goods to the end user, previously acquiring them from other persons, including from direct producers.
Attractiveness of commercialentrepreneurship lies in the apparent opportunity to sell the product at a higher price than it was purchased, while gaining quite a considerable profit. However, in practice, to realize such an opportunity is not so simple - often the huge work of a businessman-trader is in the shadows. In addition, for the successful conduct of a trading business, it is necessary to study and constantly know the unmet demand of potential buyers and be able to respond quickly to all changes in the market situation by offering consumers the goods or their analogues. This is the main difficulty of commercial entrepreneurship.
