For years I have been asked on how to bring you business to the next level. Everyone I know that has a business hits a hurtle and it’s hard to get over the next hump. We worked so hard to get to where we are, but to truly make this business take off you need to grow it and nurture it. Think of it like a child.
Yes, that last few years you have done everything to raise your business. Yet you would not send a toddler out into the world to take care of him self and grow and learn. You will keep on teaching and raising that child for many years to come. Even if you have put 5 years into it, you will still need to put many more years and sleepless nights into your business.
The good news is that there are many people out there that can help. Think of them like a nanny you will still be raising your business, but with help from company’s like lead management service you can now at least take a few hours off here and there and hand over a little bit of the work to others.
The truth is you will never completely step back but having a few people in your corner can be exactly what you need. You can now spend a little more of your time doing the part you love or gathering more clients. Which is how you will grow your business.
Once you have gotten a little bit of help my first suggestion is take a day off. Not days but take one day off do something you love go fishing, go to the spa any thing that will keep your mind off your business for a day. After you take your one day wake up the next morning and get to work.
Start by making a list what exactly will help your business grow. What do you need More sales? More clients? More space? What every it is start that list. Then one by one answer your list by what you can do to get the stuff you need?
Do you need more customers? then its time to hit the road and go get customers. Do you need more space call a realtor and start looking. When I sold for a company I did not just sit back and hope people came to me I went out every day dropping off brochures and talking to everyone. I always had samples with me and even when they were not a potential customer but they were lonely I would sit and talk to them for however long they needed. What did this do for me it made me friends who referred their friends.
Each step you take will be one step closer to getting you over the hurtle. Just remember take some time, Think, get help where you can and just keep on working.
