It might be easy to say you have a ‘good’ business, but there are practices that can make you say you have an ‘amazing’ business. These 5 simple but powerful cornerstones may be a great reminder through the challenges and also why you got into business in the first place . To know that 60% of all businesses stop their operation within the first three years speaks volumes of how challenging being in business is. If you know someone in a small business give them a shout out and let them know you care!
1. Have fun
Being in business is not always easy. Some days it can be down right challenging. Creating fun, or making sure you do something fun, especially when it is tough, is a sane way to stay on track and hold onto the reasons why you do what you do.
2. Passion and integrity
Living your passion is actually a dream come true, yet it is denied to so many. If you stay connected to the original reason you started your business you will realize how blessed you are. It is this deep passion that will carry you through the challenges and keep you humble with the wins. Integrity feeds this passion. It’s about how you feel about yourself, how you portray yourself to the world. It means staying true to your word, sharing your values openly and honestly. It’s being able to go to bed at night knowing that although you might not be perfect, you might make mistakes and you might struggle, that you have given your heart and soul to the business and everyone involved in it.
3. Your team is your greatest asset
A happy team means happy customers, which means a happy environment, and a happy business. Your team is a reflection of you and if they believe in your why, in your vision, mission, purpose and core values, and they are happy, they will represent you in the most profound and powerful way. They will be there for you when the chips are down, they will rise above when least expected and they will make you laugh. Even better, they support you to do well. And when you are doing well they are doing even better.
4. Love your customers
I remember hearing a well-known author say she was indebted to every single person who bought her book. She said she always makes an effort to speak to anyone that she signs a copy for, because it is thanks to them that she has a beautiful home in a beautiful part of the world. I love it. Your customers are gold. Taking a moment to speak to them personally, staying in touch with them regularly and sharing a little bit of you makes them feel like they are friends or indeed part of your family.
5. Share yourself
The more you give the more you receive. Share your knowledge, ideas, formulas, successes, failures… share all you can and feel the energy you receive. Sharing is one of the most likeable attributes I see in business. When we come from a place of creation and not competition everyone succeeds.
