Lately, I have noticed an uptick in the degree of optimism CEOs, presidents and business owners have.
I am getting calls from business people saying: “I want to grow my business”.
Business people are ready to tap into their entrepreneurial spirit again.
Business advice about growing your business is infinite. It’s also highly individual to your business. So I am going to give you only one piece of advice if you are considering or in the midst of growing your business.
Here it is:
Your success depends on how you think and on what YOU want. Not what others think or what others may want. But there’s a flipside to that. It’s also about the marketplace and what the marketplace wants, and sometimes, even demands.
Does your company have the ability to give the marketplace what it wants?
Are you prepared to deal with all the challenges you are creating for yourself by growing your business?
Remember: Business success happens because of the economy but also because success really isn’t about the economy. It’s about how you think about business. And what are you willing to do to succeed in growing your business.
