Top 3 business tips

Top 3 business tips

Business tip number one is to take it slow.

My father-in-law once gave me a great piece of advice - to walk before I run.
When I established my first business in 2018, it rapidly developed to a full-service studio, we introduced a product line, and we began training during the first year.

Over-taking more than you can handle is a typical issue for entrepreneurs, since we are naturally creative, eager, and sometimes too hasty.

This is why tip number one is to decelerate; move more slowly, talk slower, and act at a slower pace.

Tip number two: show yourself some love. Approach your business with the same care and dedication that you would for any important relationship in your life - whatever you invest in it, you expect to get out of it.

If you give too much or not enough, it won’t be able to thrive. This means that you must be the voice of your business, helping it to develop from the beginning.
As you evaluate your business’s requirements and focus points, also take a moment to do the same for yourself.

Every day, take the time to reflect on yourself, recognize your weaknesses, appreciate your strengths, and keep on working to improve yourself.
Sometimes you might think that if you’d paid half the attention to yourself that you had to your business, your results might be different. Never stop being kind to yourself.

Tip number three: have a clear goal and reliable values for your business to follow.

It’s not realistic to assume that all your employees know your every thought and can understand your every expectation.

However, if you give them too much room to do as they please, you risk having an unsuccessful business.

As much as you value creative thinking and people with new ideas, provide your team with guidelines and procedures to follow, and only delegate tasks in which you don’t have much expertise.

If you’re trying to grow too quickly, go back to the number one tip and slow down - without proper procedures, you could end up redoing the same task twice, and end up losing time, energy, and money.

In any area of your business, you must have a full understanding of the activities taking place - neglecting one part could affect the success of the whole.

The key is to stay authentic, maintain your principles, be consistent, and remain self-disciplined.
