What to do When Things Go Right for Your Business

With all the hustling you do for your business, trying to bring about success, it’s hard to imagine a time when you might actually want things to slow down or need to find new goals. We work so hard at growing our business, improving our products and services, and getting clients that we forget how attainable success is. Success can become overwhelming very quickly. Alternatively, you might end up needing to change up your goals for the betterment of your own well-being as well as your business’s. If things have gone so right for you lately that you’re finding yourself in a bit of a spin, here’s what you should do!​

What to do When Things Go Too Right for Your Business

1. Get Organized as Fast as Possible

When your business starts gaining momentum, one of the easiest things to lose track of is your sense of organization. As things pick up speed, however, organization is the last thing you want to let go, so if you’re feeling disorganized, get organized right away! Losing your organization will create issues, messes, and problems at unpredictable levels of severity in the future since you’ll be more likely to make mistakes and forget about tasks. Be sure to keep your to-do lists updated and check in regularly to make sure you’re not missing anything. Make sure to keep your records clean. 

2. Refocus Your Goals

This could simply mean remembering your current goals and refocusing on them, but it could also mean adjusting them so they focus on what’s actually important. Is your goal to keep growing your business and get more clients? Or is it to provide quality services in a personal way? Whatever your goal is or whatever you want it to become, focus on that. Then plan and prioritize to accomplish that goal. This might mean continuing your business growth, but it might mean turning away new clients so you can give your current clients the attention they need. 

3. Get Some Help

If projects, details, and tasks are falling through the cracks despite proper organization and goal-setting, then it might be time to bring in some help. Determine what projects you can outsource without sacrificing the quality or goals of your business and then find some reputable people or companies to help lighten your workload. Alternatively, you could hire employees and delegate tasks you don’t have to personally handle or that cause you the most stress. Don’t be ashamed of asking for help! You and your business will benefit from it.

4. Learn, Research, and Implement

Who are your competitors and what are they doing? How are they making their business run well? What are some of the latest technological updates that apply to or can be used in your business? What’s your target market like and have they changed at all? Take some time to learn from your competitors, colleagues, and customers in order to help you and your business improve. Continually search for ways to do what you do in a better, more efficient way.

5. Enjoy and Congratulate Yourself

Remember to take some time to enjoy what you’ve accomplished. Go out to dinner, buy something nice, go on a short trip (or a long trip), invest some money, do whatever you want but please acknowledge and celebrate your success.  Celebrate, Dance, Laugh, Enjoy. You deserve this!  

Conclusion

Things are constantly changing. Your business is changing, as is your market, your customers, and more. Success and failure; busy seasons and slow seasons; this is the way of the world. The success of your business depends on your ability to learn, react, and flow with these changes.

5 Signs You Were Born To Run A Business

5 Signs You Were Born To Run A Business

Becoming an entrepreneur can be both terrifying and exhilarating at the same time. You become your own boss, you set your own hours, you call all the shots. You also bear the weight of generating your own income, selling a product or convincing other people that you have something they want and need.

According to statistics, about 20% of small businesses fail in the first year, and 50% fail after five years in business. So what makes the difference between someone who succeeds and someone who fails?

Many women mistakenly believe that they need business, programming, accounting or marketing skills or even a degree if they want to run their own business. But I’ve found this isn’t necessarily the case.

I’ve found that most powerful entrepreneurial women possess the following:

#1 Resilience

Many women go through several different ideas and business ventures before finally creating something profitable. Others have to work for months or even years before they start earning the income they want. Resilience to stress, failure and discouragement is paramount if you want to be a successful entrepreneur. Do you consider yourself resilient? Can you “bounce back” from tough experiences? Then you just might have what it takes.

#2 Self-Confidence

When you run your own business, you become the boss! Entrepreneurs need a healthy amount of self-confidence to navigate the ins and outs of running a company. Do you believe in yourself and what you have to offer? If you are not confident in yourself and your business, your clients, customers and employees are going to feel it. People are naturally drawn to confidence and passion.

#3 The Ability To Take Risks

Women who like to think outside the box, get excited at the thought of adventure, and who aren’t afraid of imperfection tend to do much better as business owners than those who like to live by the rules. Those who get easily stressed when things go awry have a hard time seeing the opportunities that may be present when things don’t go as planned. Are you willing to take risks and embrace the beauty of imperfection?

#4 Vision

Good entrepreneurs know how to create a powerful vision that gives them motivation and strength to overcome challenges. They see things in the world that could be better and are able to spin ideas and solutions that address problems. Instead of accepting life as it is or being satisfied with “normal” they want to push boundaries and make things better. They see opportunity everywhere they go!  

#5 Strong Sense Of Responsibility

Successful women entrepreneurs have a strong sense of responsibility for their lives. They know they are the authors of their own story. They don’t make excuses for their failures instead, they accept and learn from their failures. They take ownership of their thoughts, emotions, reactions, mistakes and successes.

If any of these traits resonated with you, it’s likely you would make a good entrepreneur. If you feel you are lacking in any of these areas, don’t be discouraged! We are ever changing beings and can learn and evolve as much as we choose. While some people may be naturally gifted in these areas, anyone can acquire these powerful traits with commitment and action.
