URGENCY & GROWTH
These past few months have turned most of the world upside down. Everything appears to have slowed down; people are waiting for a solution to the pandemic and to the general unrest in our country. Yes, there is another election coming and that too has caused people to pause; half the people are hoping for a political change to make things better and the other half are hoping and waiting for no change. There is a sense of “let’s wait and see”. Too many small businesses are operating at a low-speed in this increasingly fast and complex world.
As small business owners we must keep our focus firmly on growth. Allowing a business to “slow down” is like asking a tree not to grow. We all know that if a tree does not grow it dies.
Cranking up our growth effort creates energy and new ideas will come to mind, changes that have to be made to our current services and products as well as the introduction of new products and services.
As I have frequently mentioned in previous blogs, the main function of a business and your only responsibility as a business owner is to make as much money as possible while caring for others at the same time. If you believe in what you do, how you do it and why you do it, then your adrenaline should be growing each day. If you couple that with a belief that anything is possible, then success will follow.
The BizQuack business philosophy is to “give first”. That means that our purpose is always to help others first without expecting anything in return. If our minds and hearts truly meet, then the benefits we offer in our products and services will also shine through and people will seek us out.
There are a few companies that will thrive in this environment because they see the many opportunities that are available to all of us. You may have to break away from the “herd mentality” that it can’t be done and surround yourself with people that are constantly challenging you to find a way to make it happen.
This very unique time in our history will give rise to new and highly successful businesses. The heads of those companies will be the ones that made urgency and growth a priority.
