Running a successful and sustainable business requires the very best of you, the business owner and entrepreneur.
You will face ups and downs, highs and lows, and go through stretches of plateau in between. You will need to adapt to your changing situations, discover new solutions to old problems, grow with every challenge, build lasting relationships, establish yourself as a credible brand in your market and trust yourself to make better and bolder decisions in every stage of growth.
These stages of business growth require a well-thought-out plan, proven strategies, a vision that all are excited to follow, and leadership that can rise above it all to deliver on its promises and inspire others to do their best.
But above all and before all, they require the right mindset, the right framework of thinking that will enable your every success.
You know only too well that you need to be able to wear several hats – manager, business owner, sales executive, mentor, leader, entrepreneur, innovator, to name a few – and to do well by all your titles.
Many first-time business owners give up when they find themselves in a rough patch, sometimes on their first occasion, other times on their 27th occasion but give up they do.
What can set you – the successful business owner and entrepreneur – apart from them is your mindset, your belief system, and your approach to challenges and successes.
It is clear to you that you have smarts, abilities, and excellent work ethics in plenty of supply. You also have the desire and drive to make your business grow and flourish.
Your challenges as a business owner and entrepreneur lie elsewhere.
Your challenges are:
…to set the right priorities and boundaries in place and to follow them where now you struggle with clarity on both sides.
…to be able to be able to step outside the frame to see yourself in an objective light where now you can only see frustration and blame on the outside.
…to be able to trust others and delegate without micromanaging whereas you do almost everything now because “nobody can do it as well as I can!”
…to stay focused and motivated on the real business issues where now you feel overwhelmed under the weight of daily distractions.
The key to your success is on resolving these challenges and doing so efficiently and effectively. It turns out that figuring it all out on your own is neither efficient nor effective. The Do-it-yourself (DIY) entrepreneurs take longer and spend considerably more money and energy in the end than their counterparts who choose to go to an expert, to engage an outside perspective to come alongside of them and invest in their growth and development.
Often, the best approach is the simplest one: Engaging the objective, unbiased view of an outside perspective to give you the right insights and to point out your blind spots so that you can clearly see your challenges for what they are (and what they aren’t!) and be able to craft the best solution based on that insight.
