TODAY’S BUSINESS STRATEGY:
Taking Care of YOUR Business Success
Business Rescue Coach Maggie asks you:
Do you tend to your business’s needs?
Are you aware of what your business’s needs are?
Do you know how to take care of your little babe (your business)?
YOUR Business Strategy today is to stop for 5-10 minutes and reflect the
above questions. Do you really know what your precious little baby (your business), who depends on you, really needs?
Why? Well, if you don’t know what your business really needs from you to survive right now, it may not! And we all know that would be silly, right? Of course it would! Your business or the one you manage really needs to be tended to as if it is a baby. At times, quite demanding but always lovable isn’t it?
Every business has different needs/requirements to progress and grow into your vision to become YOUR Business Success 🙂 The specific needs may be unique, one time requirements, and others may be consistent. These are also different needs depending upon which stage (conceptual, pre-launch, launch, growth, or sustainability) of business evolution, or what I call Business Brilliance, you are in at the time.
From my experience, and my clients, it appears that basic business activities, the things you need to do to take care of YOUR Business is simplified into the the 5 Stages of YOUR Business Success. The 5 stages are created by the type of action or the care your baby (business) needs to survive and progress to the next stage. Of course, we really aren’t settling for surviving – in all actuality we are much more focused on thriving, but we must start with the basics. Regardless of how long you have been doing business, take time to review the following and let me know where you believe you are according to the minimal requirements of each stage. Let’s figure out where you are at now…
Taking Care of YOUR Business Success During Conceptual Stage
- Do you have a clear vision of what issue you want to solve?
- Do you know precisely who is YOUR Ideal Customer/s ?
- Do you know how to move from concept to form of this idea?
- Do you have an experienced Mentor AND Coach in these areas?
Taking Care of YOUR Business Success During Pre-Launch Stage
- Do you have successful experience in progressing something beyond its conceptual stage?
- Do you have a map to guide you of which internal and external business actions are required?
- Do you know the best sequence of the action items required to Launch YOUR Business? (Clue: each one is VERY different!)
- Do you have YOUR Mentor AND Coach in place to help you with accountability?
Taking Care of YOUR Business Success During Launch Stage
- Do you have all YOUR Pre-Launch activities completed effectively and efficiently to Launch with minimal effort and stress?
- Do you have YOUR Successful Launch map completed?
- Do you know how to assure a successful Launch and support it?
- Do you have your support system in place to encourage you when you need encouragement?
Taking Care of YOUR Business Success During Growth Stage
- Do you know how to move YOUR Business from Successful Launch to Brilliant Growth?
- Do you know how to make YOUR Business shine even more brilliantly to be noticed more?
- Do you know how to market YOUR Business to shine brilliantly in the marketplace?
- Do you have internal systems to support YOUR Brilliant Growth?
Taking Care of YOUR Business Success During Sustainability Stage
- Do you have a map to assure you gain market-share in a good way?
- Do you know how to re-evaluate YOUR Business’s Service Demand Requests?
- Do you have the appropriate resources to sustain your vision of YOUR Business’s Service?
- Do you consistently have fresh ideas to gain market visibility to sustain YOUR Business Success?
I imagine you are realizing you may be in one stage and thinking you have been in another, or even taking the actions as if you were in another instead of supporting what YOUR Business Success Needs are at this particular time… Don’t worry, it happens often. Personally, I review this quarterly to straighten out my arrow mid-stream to assure I’m focusing on all the right stuff for my business success. IF if you take 10 minutes to work through this post, you will be moving in the right direction to support YOUR Business Success More Brilliantly!
