If I were to ask you how do you feel about your business right now, what would your answer be? Some of you might feel frustrated, overwhelmed, annoyed, or stuck. Or you may feel happy, positive, empowered and in massive momentum at the moment. However you are feeling about your business, the #1 component of designing a business that you love is getting back to the basics!
As an entrepreneur, your business journey is going to be constantly changing, growing and evolving. Sometimes businesses need a boost or a push in a different direction; this is where getting back to the business basics is key to success!
The following basics below will help you to design a business that you absolutely love, try implementing at least 1-2 items this week and see how you feel!
Business Basic Tip #1 - Create “Me” Time. This is absolutely necessary when running a business. Taking a time out for yourself to recharge, relax and renew is the most important habit you can create for both yourself and your business. You are your own best asset and if you do not take the time for yourself first you will not be sharing your best self with your clients or anyone around you.
Business Basic Tip #2 - Keep it Simple. Sometimes as entrepreneurs we want to do it all. We feel the need to multi-task, overwhelm ourselves and put extreme pressure on certain situations and people. We need to slow down, enjoy the journey and keep it simple in everything that we do.
Business Basic Tip #3 - Stop doing what everyone else is doing. Create your own rules. Be different. Be authentic. Infuse your personality, energy and passion into everything you do. Figure out your own unique style and bring it to those who you are meant to serve. People do business with others who they know, like and trust so bring your most authentic self to the table and watch the type of clients you will attract.
Business Basic Tip #4 - Figure out what turns you on and makes you tick. Sometimes businesses get stale, our interests change or we outgrow a desire. At this point, we need to reconnect and turn inward to identify what our passions are and what we are being called to share with the world. We as entrepreneurs are changing and it is normal for us to change the course of our businesses from time to time.
Business Basic Tip #5 - Identify your key core values. What are your top 3 values? It could be security, freedom, fun, independence; when you identify your key values this makes it easier when you have to make different choices and decisions in your business. So what are your top 3 values?
Business Basic Tip #6 - Seek mentors and a supportive network/community. In order to get to the next level in business surrounding yourself with like-minded people is an absolute MUST. Having a mentor and/or a supportive network/community is critical in your own personal and professional growth and development.
I would love to know what tip you enjoyed the most and what you will be implementing this week. Also please feel free to share below any other tips for getting back to the basics in business.
