Building a successful small business that actually works is much easier than you think, you just need to get the foundation's right first.
Stop thinking one sale at a time and think strategies for structured sales, client retention and ongoing simpler growth. There are gaps and opportunities in every business!
So you've got an idea, and want to turn that into a business, or maybe just a side hustle while you keep working, and just not sure how.
Youve been operating for a little while, and now its time to start making some real money. There are basics that every business miss, that hold them back.
Its easy for a business to continue trading for years, without getting any real return to the owner. That can change quick, once you see the gaps, and missed opportunities and improve profit.
When you're really ready to grow, scale, and leverage the business potential, the things you focus on first, change. Team, management, systems.
At some point, you make the decision to exit, and far too many business owners do it when they're done, they're over it, and exit poorly. Do it right, and the return is much, much better!
The idea of a business (my belief anyway) is to make money. And not just what a job could do, but much more, and that takes thinking as early as possible, planning and ensuring it happens the wya its planned.
