Learning how to achieve business success
I am back!
My focus lately has been learning how to achieve business success. I’ve had a few emails asking me why I stopped writing my blog. As a result, I’ll use this opportunity to thank you for following my blog and reaching out to make sure I’m ok.
It has been a hectic season for me as I am growing into a resilient entrepreneur. I have been pleasantly surprised to see how many wonderful business owners have taken the time to have 1-2-1 sessions with me. These are people who have found much growth success in their businesses over the years, and I will use this blog to share what I find consistent between all the entrepreneurs. My key question to every entrepreneur has been ‘how do you make a success of your business?’.
The key questions for me are ‘what does business success mean to you? What does it look like? How should it feel?
I could imagine it means having more money in the bank, for instance. It could be building a business with many employees and have the freedom to live a good standard of life for many.
However, whatever it means to us, are these things beyond our reach? Is there a secret formula?
The consistent traits
Firstly, the most consistent trait I found is how they all plan very well for success. Money and time do not magically appear in their business. Secondly, they often learn how to develop their product to a standard that works. Thirdly, they consistently look for ways to reach customers. Finally, and most importantly, they price their goods and services to promote profit for the business and find the right people to work with.
Of course, there are many other factors, such as developing your capacity to grow, reading and most of all, learning to be resilient, for instance. I hope these little pointers help you as much as they are helping me to learn how to achieve business success. I’m learning that most things are simple, really; it’s about consistency.
In conclusion, I look forward to catching up with you next week. I’ll share with you about my week in self-isolation in Guernsey as we’re here for a Las Vegas-style charity night!
