The Challenge of Success
One of the greatest challenges for every small business owner is the challenge of success. Let me explain: when you start a small business, you are doing most (if not all!) of the work yourself and as you are becoming more and more successful, you are doing more and more of the work. Though it is nothing to complain about, it can be a big challenge.
Nonetheless, there are tools that can help you do more with less, where you can continue to grow your success and minimize your time, effort and financial investment.
In order to do this three things have to happen:
1. You need to believe that you can do more with less
Look at other people who are doing what you want to be doing, living the life that you want to be living, running their business the way you want your business to run and see that it really is possible!
2. Create a comprehensive plan
Create a plan that covers the six basic points of business growth:
- Goals & Strategy
- Marketing & Branding
- Financials & Profitability
- Systems & Operations
- Work Life Balance
3. Make sure you have support
Whether professional or peers and ideally both. Creating the right environment for yourself will help you continue on your path – even when it gets difficult. A great support team will give you the necessary advice and input you need both when things are going well and when the road gets a little bumpy.
For those of you who have not yet taken your business to the next level, but feel ready to; if you are doing well but feel “maxed out” and want to do better, Strand Consulting will be launching an exclusive Business Mastermind Group of ten vetted business owners, local in LA, and remotely via Skype.
