Developing your business can be an arduous and stressful undertaking. So many areas require your attention and sometimes, finding the time to focus on the tasks that need to be done can seem an impossible mission that you don’t want to accept before the vanishes into thin air!
This applies whether you’re delivering a product or service yourself or overseeing a time of employees who represent you and your business.
Here are 3 key (Buzzfeed fashion) approaches that can help to focus the mind on the tasks at hand:
- Having an up-to-date Business Plan – often seen as a bit of a ‘Marmite’, but maintaining an up to date and realistic business plan can be crucial to the success of your business, both directly and indirectly. Your Business Plan can act as a reminder of your values, vision and mission – a yardstick for why you’re doing what you’re doing in the first place, and the performance benchmark against which you can measure how well you’re doing in the short, medium and long term.
- Sharing your values, vision and mission – Your business is you – you, more often than not are the heart beat of your business. So the visions you have for your business will likely inspire your staff and your customers and be part of the reason they choose to join you on your journey in the first place. Share your vision – it will likely resonate and attract like-minded professionals and prospective customers.
- Give Back – We reap what we sow. Take the time to share ‘wins’ and good news stories. Look after those around you – your people and your communities and they will look after you in return.
