You don’t have to look very long to find lots of advice for starting a business. And it’s great that so many who’ve gone before you are willing to share some of what they know. But most of that advice doesn’t include what to do after that. Oh sure, you’ll get plenty of superfluous recommendations like:
- Provide great service
- Be willing to make sacrifices
- Remember consistency and persistence
But starting a business is just the tip of the iceberg.
And most advice articles will tell you that your work has just begun after starting a business. Then, they’ll tell you that you’ll probably work harder for yourself than you ever did for “the man.” And that, of course, means you very likely won’t get to spend as much time with friends and loved ones as you’d like.
Those points are all true.
They’ll emphasize the importance of great customer service. And they might even share examples of how that’ll make customers (and clients) more likely to wanna do more business with you. Because you paid more attention to them than your competition did.
And that’s certainly true.
And, naturally, we can’t leave out the persistence part. So, the other advice you’ll find everywhere will almost always say stuff like, “keep doing what’s necessary to be successful.” Or something like, “create long-term positive habits that can help you make money for the long run.”
Well, I certainly can’t (and won’t) argue with the general concept of that advice. But let’s look at all that advice from the perspective of a newbie. Because I think it brings up more questions than it provides solutions.
So you’re probably gonna work harder for yourself than “the man.” OK. Doing what? And, sure, customer service is crucial. But, do you have any customer service tips for MY industry? Then, you say to “keep doing what’s necessary to be successful.” But any ideas what’s necessary? Those would be helpful. And what kind of “long-term positive habits can help you make money for the long run?”
Yeah, wouldn’t some specifics be mighty helpful?
I saw an article that attempted to answer the question, “What is the fastest way for a business to grow?” And I didn’t find their answer to be all that helpful. They said:
“There are some aspects to running lean that may help a business grow quickly. Such as focusing on a small product line, scaling up instead of scaling down, and providing some sort of obvious edge over your competitors.”
Again, that just brings up questions in my mind. What do you mean “scaling up instead of scaling down?” And how do you find an “obvious edge over your competitors?”
My first recommendation, when you’re first starting a business, is to be sure you have a clear Vision. And that’s why My RondaReady System book includes lessons designed to help you discover yours. Because if you’re not even sure WHERE you wanna go, how will you know which first step to take?
Are you thinking about starting a business? Well, how about starting with a business book that not only helps you discover your Vision, but also helps you start AND RUN a business?
It’s available on Amazon.
The $115 price ($100 for the Kindle version) is a tiny fraction of what you’d pay for a business school or university. And my proven system teaches you how to RUN a business. So, it shouldn’t cost YOU anything at all. At least, not if you’re willing to implement the business-building strategies my high-paying, one-on-one clients have used to ramp up to six and seven figure incomes.
But don’t even think of spending $115 on my book if you believe in yourself enough to follow through. Because, as I said, I don’t want it to cost you anything. I want your increased sales and profits to pay for it.
So, essentially, my book is only for the very few who will work through it with a burning desire to succeed.
If that sounds good to you, awesome.
And in that case, get yourself a copy on Amazon and start reaping. If you do, I’d like you do me a favor. Keep in touch and let me know how it’s going.
