How to run a “grown up” business

Posted by | | Business Development | No Comments

How to run a “grown up” business is my second lecture of the convention. Those that arrived for my lecture at 8.00am I salute you all, and on behalf of your business we thank you for caring. All businesses need to be loved, nurtured and given attention; the trick to growing a business with a future is to make sure it receives continual care and consideration.

How to run a “grown up” business is all about seeking your businesses potential. Indentify your businesses hidden gems, its true potential. What could your business have in store for you creatively? Could your business be the catalyst to fulfilling all your dreams and wishes?

All businesses have hidden gems, whether they are photography services, product and retail opportunities or fresh shoot styles - seek and hunt for your hidden gems; Your Golden Fleece.

Running a business can be emotionally and physically demanding, the business has the power to drain your creative, emotional and physical resources. To prevent this from happening requires courage and an element of planning, as dull as that might sound! Make your approaches to managing your business as appealing as possible to you and your style of thinking. If you want the business to grow, growth will require preparation and planning.

The early birds that attended the lecture this morning, will already be on the road to success, as my objective was to ensure all left the lecture far more determined for both their businesses and themselves.

Determination is a required ingredient, so ask yourself what are you determined for? What do you need to put your weight behind? Ambition does not have to be an ugly word; in fact it can be rather attractive when marketed well.

Define your direction; my accountant recently told me, most business leaders waste 30% of their time on the stuff that doesn’t build a business, is that you? I thought long and hard about this shared factor. I returned to the office that day as a much more determined young lady! 30% felt alarming, I then imagined giving my business the gift of 30% and then said to myself, where would I place the gift of 30%? My answer was to encourage growth and development. I questioned everything; what gems were hidden? Under marketed? Undersold?

Implement these thoughts into your business and witness the impact and positive changes. There is only one you, so you need to get the best out of you! Leaders can often waste time sprinting down blind alleys, procrastinating, or simply concentrating on the wrong stuff. My motive in sharing this is to guide, inspire and motivate your mindset in a direction towards positive change.

Your growing business needs a landscape to perform from, and you will always be your businesses biggest influencer. Give yourself the permission this year to perhaps do things a little bit differently.
