10 Steps to Build a Better Business | Summary
You’re in business. Congratulations - that takes courage and commitment.
It’s not easy, and at times you might question why you’re even doing it, particularly after the impact Covid-19 and the associated lockdowns had on business.
But you’re here because you had a vision. You decided being in business was a better way to achieve that vision than working for someone else. And, you’re right; you just have to work on it.
It's likely that you're an expert at what you do… maybe you’re a mechanic and know the inside of a car engine like the back of your hand. Or, maybe you’re a fashion retailer who can style anyone. This doesn’t mean you’re an expert at running your business though. It’s hard taking time out of working in your business to work on it. But doing this is essential for its success.
There’s no magical overnight solution to building a more successful business. It’s about taking small steps every day to get a bit better than the day before.
