Why you’re killing your business – and what to do about it
You’re an entrepreneur. You work hard, you put your heart and soul into the business and yet you’re not getting the results that you’re after.
What do you do?
Most entrepreneurs work harder. They work more hours, they take less time off and they spend less time with their families.
The results are a bit better, but still not what you’re expecting.
Chances are you’re killing your business. This is how to do something about it.
Most entrepreneurs I meet are struggling with something. Maybe it’s getting more customers. Maybe it’s improving business processes, maybe it’s entering new markets or dealing with new suppliers. Whatever the problem is that they are facing, you can be sure of one thing.
Most entrepreneures don’t like to share what they are struggling with. So it’s very difficult for them to address the problems and deal with them.
I usually find that this is down to one of 3 reasons:
1. You don’t feel anyone close to you will understand the problem or can help
2. You don’t think talking about it will help
Finally (and this is usually the big one!)
3. you’re afraid to admit that you’re struggling
Sadly, none of these reasons (however valid) will help you become more successful in your business. In fact by struggling on with the problem you’re facing, you’re killing your business.
Now here’s the thing. Once you acknowledge you’ve got a problem you can start to do something about it.
So, make a commitment today to recognise whatever it is that you have a problem with and then you can start to do something about it.
If you don’t know how to fix the problem, think about what first step you would need to take to fix it. Then do that. Then think about the next step, and the next, and the next step and continue to figure out each step at a time until the problem is fixed.
