Meeting fellow business owners can be a good source of new business. It is part of building a long-term relationship with them and could give a lot of benefits to your business, especially if you are just starting to follow the entrepreneurship path.
Spend time developing relationships and networking with other business owners in your city or community. Start by making a list of all the companies and people you wish to build a relationship with. Email them with your reason of why you desire to connect with them, as well as how it would benefit both of your businesses.
Don’t be disappointed if some people reject your offer, because not all are willing to create a long-term relationships; especially if you don’t have a large platform yet. That’s one of the disadvantages of being new in the business industry. Don’t let this discourage you! Motivate yourself to look for other companies you could reach out to and expand your business.
Stay humble. When I was starting my business, some companies rejected me when I reached out to them. However, I didn’t let it disappoint me. Instead, I did my best to look for other companies and contacted them for a meeting to talk about how we can benefit our businesses together. Networking is one of the most important tools you can use in the business world, so take advantage of it!
Meet with other entrepreneurs and get your business growing!
As an entrepreneur, I know the feeling of wanting your business to grow in the blink of an eye. I know the thirst of having it out there and have more people notice and talk about how great your products and services are.
But, I also learned that everything takes time when I was just starting my business. It takes a lot of patience to get your business to grow the way you want it to be, especially your market reach. Sure, we’d love to have our business have more products for our new and existing customers to explore, but we also have to learn from their feedback and apply appropriate action on how to make our business grow.
What you need to do is to make a little progress every day because it adds up and eventually, it will create a big result. Advertise your business both digitally and traditionally through print ads, billboards, etc. While you probably won’t experience growth right away, whichever way you choose to expand your business, you will see progress if you keep being consistent about it. Patience and consistency will successfully transform your business into all that you want it to be.
Be patient and do what you can for now, in order to get your business to grow.
I know most of my Rockstars hesitate a lot of times regarding their business and/or their dreams because they’re afraid of failing or even being rejected. But remember, failing and being rejected are always part of the thrill and the challenge of life.
One thing you should know and do is to never hesitate. Hesitating means you’re only pulling your dreams further behind from achieving and making it turn into reality. To some people, it may work; but mostly, hesitating just eats up your time and opportunity.
It takes time and effort to actually make something out of what you’re doing. If you’re trying hard to reach your goal without giving up, you’ll eventually reach it. It might not be immediately, but you’ll definitely reach it. Some people give up because they think that dream isn’t for them. While it might be true and applicable to some people, it wouldn’t hurt to try and continue to give it another shot. And when you do, your future self will be thankful and proud of you because you never hesitated on trying.
When I was younger, I didn’t love myself. I was having negative thoughts in a lot of things. I was afraid of failing; and so, there were a lot of times when I hesitated on doing what I want and just proceeded with my normal life. But, I thought to myself that failing is also part of the journey, and so I strived for it. I failed a lot of times, but I always think that failing is just repackaged as my next step towards success. I never gave up and look at where I am today.
So, make sure to give it a shot and never hesitate on achieving your dream. Think about this: Achieving your dreams is something you do for yourself and it can definitely make you happy!
As an entrepreneur, we may experience or have already experienced many hard challenges just to keep our business running.
The key to be able to survive all the challenges ahead of us is to focus on our goals and never give up. Sure, there are times when we would fail and even feel like our efforts are futile. But, always remember that failing is repackaged as another step towards your success.
My story has inspired a lot of people to reach their goal in becoming an entrepreneur; and if you have been following me for quite a while now, you’ll know that what I’ve been through was not easy at all. But, I didn’t give up. I strived for it until I reached my goal, and that’s what you should do. Giving up should never be an option.
As the saying goes, no pain, no gain. End this year with a bang and get your business out there. When you’ve reached your goal, pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself for all your strong efforts. Remember, success is always within your reach.
Do not give up. Keep striving for your goal and continue it into the new year!
A lot of people think that as we grow older, the more it’s too late to be what we want to be. And so, most of us adults, tend to give up on our dreams and proceed to be practical and do what seems to be realistic in our everyday lives.
But, nothing is too late. It’s never too late to achieve your dreams and be what you want to be. Take the famous author, J.K Rowling, as an example. She was 32 years old when her first book came out. And look at her now, she never gave up on her dreams. Despite her age, it didn’t stop her from pursuing to be what she wants to be.
Life goes on, and so does our chances. We get to choose what we want to be. Every day, every minute and every second is a chance for us to turn our lives around. It’s a matter of action; if you just keep on wishing and doing nothing, then your dreams are nothing but dreams.
Don’t think too far ahead just yet. Focus on what you need to do. Start taking action and turn your dreams into reality!
I know all of us have a lot of dreams that we want to achieve. As a child, some of us wanted to grow up to be a doctor, a nurse, a dentist, or even start our own business. But as we grew up, we faced reality; and in the end, we forgot about our dreams and just focused on what we have in front of us, as part of being “practical”.
Some people have the fear of failing or being made fun of by the people around them. But that shouldn’t hinder you to strive for what you want to achieve. You shouldn’t be scared of being a laughing stock. Because in the end, if you let those people influence you by pulling you down, then you’ll be the loser. You just need to focus on your dream and how to turn it into a plan.
Don’t be scared of failing. Listen, failure is not failing. It’s just repackaged as your next step towards success.
Turning your dream into a concrete plan can be really intimidating. But if you do it little by little, and work on your plan by starting with baby steps, then you’re taking action by allowing yourself to achieve something bigger.
Don’t be scared. It’s time for you to make your dreams turn into reality!
I usually hear a lot of people saying they can’t write a business plan. But what’s a business plan? Do you really need one of those? How important it is? We all need a plan to go forward in our lives. We have a plan to take our children to school each day. We have a plan on what we will cook for that evening. We have a plan on how we will work out. Well your business also needs a plan. You must review your business plan each year to ensure that you have made the mark you desired for that year. Plus you may have a change or adjustments in the plan once you’ve understand how your business is running.
You can’t create a solid business plan without a budget and a financial forecast. A budget should ultimately reflect all the other elements in your plan. If you don’t have a clear picture of your industry, customers, competitors, and market conditions before you develop a budget, your numbers aren’t likely to reflect reality. Projected Financial Statements are a must to include in your business plan. They must be REALISTIC!!! How do you know if you will make money? If it doesn’t make money, it doesn’t make sense. You’ll just be wasting your time. Numbers don’t lie when you see it in black and white. You’re just guessing. Guessing is the best way to crash and burn. Please don’t think you will reach revenues of $1 million right out the gate in the first year. Even the best of the best companies takes time to reach revenue goals, and even longer to make profit.
