You started a business because you have a passion and a message that inspired you to action. That’s likely what you want to concentrate on and where you want to spend most of your time. But the surprise that you got is that you have to know how to run a business. It’s the part of being an entrepreneur that most people like the least.
I’m sharing my key strategies with you below for how to build a strong and sustainable business so you can lead from a place of passion and purpose. These key strategies will help you realize success more quickly, and your business will be much more rewarding and fun!
- Key #1: Know Where You Want To Go
Start with developing a vision so that you know where you want to go, and what success will look like in the short-term and in the long-term.
Key #2: Know the Why, Who, What, and How – Get Clear
Once you know where you want to go, you need to get crystal clear on the Why, Who, What and How. WHY do you do what you do? WHO are the people that need and crave what you have to offer? WHAT do you provide as a solution to their problem? And lastly, HOW will you provide that solution?
Key #3: Take Consistent, Sustained Action with a Solid Plan
Just like you can’t build a house without a blueprint, you can’t build a business without a game plan. Build a plan, and then take consistent, forward action daily towards your goals.
Key #4: Leverage and Systematize
As you grow, you need to learn how to get more done without gaining more time, since that isn’t possible. Look in your business to see where you can systematize, implement processes, leverage resources, and repurpose content.
Key #5: Follow the Money
At the end of the day, you are in business to make money. It’s what keeps the doors open. So outside of tending to clients, 80% of your time should be spent on money-making activities.
It’s time to step into your role as the leader of your business. Being a proactive leader will keep you in a constant state of progression.
