Who’s afraid of a little risky business?
Well, lots of people. In fact, probably most people are afraid of a little risky business. And that doesn’t compute when it comes to starting, running, and successfully building your own business. Because you gotta take some risks. You’ve probably heard that old expression, “the greater the risk, the greater the reward.” Right? Well, the cold, hard truth is…that’s not always true. But it’s true enough to become an old expression.
A client of mine (who will remain nameless for this example) was what they call “risk averse.” She always played it safe when it came time to take her business to the next level. And she’d spend days, weeks, sometimes even months analyzing a next move. Or piece of business equipment. Or even something as simple as a tagline for her website. So, after we’d been meeting for a few months, I suggested she should hire an assistant. Because business had stacked up to the point where her work days went from early morning to late night.
“Oh no, I couldn’t,” she said. “It would be too risky at this point. And I wouldn’t know where to start to get them familiar with my process. I’ve barely got it down myself.”
So, I said, “Well, I think it’s time you jumped into my system with both feet. You’ve dipped your toes in and business has grown. Why not commit even more and get even more positive results?”
Now, I don’t mean you should run a “Risky Business” like in the movie with Tom Cruise?
Far from it. That movie included high risk illegal activities. And you should Never Ever (with a capital N and capital E) risk your business that way. But you should know, even before you start your business, you’re taking a risk. Because there are no guarantees. But you can certainly stack the odds a lot more in your favor when you use a proven system.
I know, sometimes even diving deeper into your own business can feel risky.
But when you follow your roadmap, your blueprint, your system…you’ll probably be amazed at how that feeling melts away. You might actually begin to embrace the inherent risk of business with a new-found confidence. Especially when you’re using tools like better time management, automation, delegation, and building relationships. It’s not “gaming the system.” It’s not what they used to call “black hat.” And you’re not using trickery, social media hacks, or online smoke and mirrors.
No, it’s all about reducing the bad effects or bad feelings of risk taking by using a proven system.
Yes, I know I’m always talking about a system. And I realize it can seem self-serving since that’s what I sell. But I also know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, how much more success your business can have when you systematize.
