Have you ever wondered what to avoid, running your own business, that it would prosper in the right way and bring the greatest profit? It is worth thinking about the following aspects that will lead you to the goal – a more prosperous company.
Here are 7 things you should avoid when doing business:
1. Work not only in the company, but also on the company.
For example: by setting up your hairdresser and at the same time employing people who will do the job, you do exactly what your employees do. Think about whether you work in the company, like the others, or OVER the company as the head / president. Ask yourself questions such as:
What can I do to attract as many customers as possible so that my employees can serve them?
What can I do to let new customers recommend our services further?
What can I do to increase sales results?
Such questions are worth asking to employees. What’s more, brainstorming will help achieve better results. Also think about how much time a day you can devote to working on business. All you need to do is think about 20 minutes a day, what you can improve in it. The “Kaizen Goal Diary” will help you achieve the results, where you will find questions that help you go further – e.g.
What should happen to my company becoming a leader in the industry?
Who is my most important competition and what is the marketing strategy or strategy of action?
What little steps can I make today to complete a given task?
This is the way you create. You know yourself and your needs best, so use it and act.
Keep your distance. Be assertive. Do not let yourself come in – through the skillful denial you respect yourself, and this is a priority aspect of building authority. Set boundaries.
2. Do not hesitate to act without a business plan.
You need to know how much marketing and running your own business will cost you.
2. Do not set rules and tasks.
Remember that if you do not set clear rules, it will make your communication with other people difficult, which results in ineffective actions and mistakes. Do not expect other people to guess what you mean. To be an authority, you must respect yourself.
3. Lack of setting monthly goals.
Do you wonder every month how much you want to earn? How much do you have to sell to reach this amount? I encourage you because, by asking such questions, you will plan specific activities that will bring you closer to reaching your own. Save them and execute, thanks to which you will become effective.
“Goals that are not saved are just dreams.”
4. Lack of communication or inadequate communication.
Speak specifically what you want. Do not be afraid of people talking about your feelings and expectations. Be the truest version of yourself, then only in your life will be people who suit you because
“The quality of our life boils down to the quality of our relationships with other people.”
5. Do not use advisors’ advice.
Think about what you need to develop your business. They do not have to be the most expensive training. There is a lot of free knowledge that you can use. Books from which you can learn and inspire with handfuls.
6. Fear of advertising.
Show yourself to people! Show who you are and what you do. Think about where your clients are – “when you fish, go to places where they are.” Invest in advertising because they will later give you a profit. You need to know your target client and adjust the offer in this way.
