5 Smart Tips To Steer Your Business Toward Success
“Money doesn’t grow on trees!” We’ve learned that from our folks from way back when we were kids asking for an increase in our school allowance. And it’s true. It’s not like an apple you simply pluck out from its tree. And yet, you’d think that the way super successful entrepreneurs make their millions with company branding or their own personal branding, it really is that easy. But, that’s always how it looks. When masters experienced with so much success, work, they make it look so easy. Just watch Stephen Curry of Golden State Warriors shoot those three pointers in any NBA game … like the ring was naturally pulling the ball into its net.
Smart Tips To Steer Your Business Toward Success:
The several, makes-a-lot-of-sense tips that follow have been gathered from business wizards and high performance entrepreneurs that helped them make their millions. Learn from them. It’ll save you wasted time and effort and like them, get you on the road to your first million bucks:
1) As much as possible, start up and grow your business on your own. Try to prevent your entrepreneurship from needing capital and getting investors into the picture. That way, you’ll have time figuring things out without them breathing down your neck for every expense you incur. When your business is steadily growing and you feel you need to raise capital to expand, that’s when you seek out investors and strengthen your company’s foundations.
2) Be a likeable personality. The adage goes …”A lot of big deals are done on the golf course.” Now, that doesn’t mean you’ve got to be a Tiger Woods to close a deal. No. What it means is that people like doing business with people they like and who share the same interests, like golf. So, start reading up on personality types with an eye towards a personal development that will make you more attractive to the people you deal with. They love it when you adjust your personality to theirs.
3) Learn how to sell, and when you’re done, learn some more. You might feel like you don’t like sales and you’re uncomfortable with it … tough sh…t! If you’re in business, you’ve got to learn it. So get an experienced mentor friend to coach you and start practicing sales techniques. Look at it from the perspective that you’re actually helping customers solve their problems. Once you’ve got your mind rewired about sales and get to start liking it, you’ll begin to bring in the big bucks.
4) In any kind of deal or negotiation, work out a win-win situation for all parties concerned. Keep in mind that most deals that fall apart and go down the drain have always something to do with one party not getting what it wants.
5) Know that the magic figure for exposure to any project is 20%. You might have done many profitable transactions that spelled success, but it only takes one that overexposes your company to wash out all your profits, if not your business.
These tips came from entrepreneurs and business owners who were successful at making millions, yet generous enough to share their experiences with people starting their own entreprenuerships. Make full use of them.
