Getting a small business enterprise off the ground is challenging to say the least. Here are some tips that will prepare the ground for running a effective little business.
This is exactly where it all starts – the foundation for success. Know exactly where you’re heading. What will the business ‘look’ like in the future? How will you know when your company is really a success? When you wake up in the morning, do you know what actions you have to make to get you on the road to success?
The difference between success and failure is down to the actions you consider. The failures in life are the people who know what they have to do but in no way do it. The profitable small business enterprise owners are individuals who consider action on their ideas, ones who in no way say, “I wish I had done …”
There is a saying that feedback is the breakfast of champions. During the early days of your business you must continually look for feedback about all aspects of your company. What works? What doesn’t work? What needs changing slightly? Speak to clients, suppliers, your bank manager, your accountant – anyone who can supply you with a fresh perspective.
Find Out What Do You Do not Know
You can’t expect to know everything about running a company. Undertake your own skills analysis and find out your own areas for growth. As soon as you realize your understanding gaps look for courses, guides and advice, that will get you on track.
Let no one distract you from achievement of your goals. At the start of each day get yourself into the frame of mind that you can only do tasks that will get you closer to your goal – nothing else matters.
You will never achieve anything if you’re not prepared to jump off the cliff a few times! We’re not talking about risks which will put the organization in jeopardy; just risks which are planned and thought out, yet at the same time test the edge!
Yes, the oldest clich inside the book, but totally true. See the good in everything. If something has not gone right train yourself to ask, “What good has come out of this?” Understand that in every problem there’s potential for good.
