Ask not what your business can do for you … ask what you can do for your business.

So often in business we are focused on what our business can do for us.

  • How much wealth can our business generate?
  • How many clients can the business serve?
  • How many people can our business can employ?

What if we flipped the script? What if we asked ourselves what we can do for our business?

  • Can we be more present – Show Up?
  • Can we provide better or greater service?
  • Can we maintain our health?
  • Can we employ the best people to do their best work?

What can you do for your business?

  •  Invest in yourself.

    • Join or Host a Mastermind

      • Developing relationships with like minded business owners and entrepreneurs and business owners will serve your business in a number of ways.
      • Shared journey – Your friends and family may not understand your journey, or your reasons why.  A lot may not even understand what you are talking about (ie, lead magnets, auto responders, sales funnels, SEO, etc)
        Others may have already been where you are going, and can offer valuable experiential advice on best practices and pitfalls to avoid.
      • Your group may have access to resources you never even dreamed of, and may refer or provide you access just because you are in the “in” crowd.
    • Be in a constant state of research and development. Don’t get stuck thinking the ways it’s always been done … is the only way it can be done!

      • Webinars can be great learning opportunities, and goodness knows there are enough of them out there.  Just be careful to pick one (1) subject area per week, attend the webinar, learn the lessons, and apply (if you can!)
      • Apps, platforms, cloud based – OH MY!! Be careful not to get caught in shiny object syndrome, but you should always be on the lookout for ways to better yourself, and the services you can bring to your business.
  • Take care of yourself.

    • As an entrepreneur or business owner, one of your greatest to your business is YOU! Hopefully you have hired a team to support you, but you are the driving force.  Talk care of yourself, for you, your family, and your business.
      • Get Rest – Getting 8 hours of sleep/rest will make you more productive than working 24 straight.
      • Get Air – It’s been proven that a 20-minute walk outside, in sunlight, will increase your productivity – without the use of stimulants.
      • Step away from the devices – get them out of your bedroom, and away from your face for a while each day.  You can thank me later!
  • Delegate and Outsource!

    • Tasks that take you away from making money are not the best use of your time.
    • If you have hired support, be clear in your instruction, and let them do the work.  You are not the only one capable of doing it.  Sometimes, things will not be done the way you would have done them.  Sometimes, done is better than perfect.  Let the people you choose do the work you pay them to do – everyone will be better for it!!
  • Show UP!

    • The more you are present in your business, the better your business will be.  Make sure that each and every day, you show up … and show out (in a good way!) What I mean is, if you know that it takes 10 client discovery calls to close a high ticket sale … then make 12. Don’t make 8 and complain that business sucks!!
    • Don’t embrace unrealistic practices – that simply won’t work in your business.  If you need to be there … then be there.
    • Have fun!
