I’m so glad spring is finally here!! One of my favorite things is seeing the flowers slowly bud and bloom. Especially ones in a beautiful, well-kept garden.
Now let’s think of growing a business like growing flowers in a garden. You’ll have to follow the steps (below) pretty closely and take care of your “garden” before you see your beautiful business flowers bloom and grow.
1. Create a specific plan for achieving your specific goals (not general goals like “grow my business”). You’ll want to include a step-by-step process as well as a specific number as your goal (whether it’s revenue, views, etc).
2. Find the exact type of work and market that makes you feel good emotionally and intellectually. When a flower is not getting the right nutrients, it doesn’t reach its full potential. You work the same way! When you are in an environment you love, you’ll be more creative and productive. Likewise, a field you aren’t too interested in will suck the energy right out of you. We’ve all been through that.
3. Create a network that consists of 1000 people who support what you’re doing. Okay, 1000 is a lottt of people. But the point is, network with as many people as you can. Every connection can bring a new opportunity. Multiply that by 1000 and you’re golden.
4. Serve your customers in creative ways so you stand out from the crowd. People want to know why they should choose YOU over your competitors. If your only reason is because you really really want them to, you may need to sit down and rethink your strategy. Let your customers know what makes you unique, and what value you can provide for them.
That’s enough tips for now.. if you enjoyed this type of post please give it a like so I know to post more in the future!
