It is a question you can ask yourself until you’re blue in the face, “am I doing enough?” In life, in yourself, in business. If you are running a company, especially one that you built from the ground up, chances are that it is your life. It could be keeping you up at night that you are not taking it in new and vibrant directions. You could be thinking about the one mistake you made many moons ago and you’re worried about when it’s time to pay the piper. If you worry that your business isn’t fulfilling its potential, let’s have a look at some ways to give it, and yourself, a shot in the arm.
How Is Your Branding?
If your website has been the same old WordPress package from 6 years ago and looks something like an 8-bit platform game then it may be time to give your business a revamp in how it appears. This can take time, especially when your business is a small one. Outsourcing to companies that can do the job for you, like Chatmeter, or work with you to develop the look you’ve always wanted.
Are you prioritizing your workload efficiently? Do you delegate work at all? If not, it may be time to start thinking about doing so. You have a workforce that believe in your organisation and are wanting to do more to push it out there, so give the right type of work to the right people. Managing your time more effectively gives a your business a refreshing vigor.
Working With Your Employees
How do your employees see you? Are you doing enough for them? As the owner, you are the leader, and you should conduct yourself accordingly. What can be seen as minor mistakes for you can cost them in more ways than a delayed pay cheque, it can cost you their faith in you and the company.
Spend Time Away From The Business
If you spend more than 70 hours of your week there, it is time to step back. How do you expect the business to survive if you got ill or needed to get away. Not only is time away healthy for you as you can actually take stock on what is needed, you will also give your colleagues the opportunity to take the reigns for once, and steer the business in new directions that you hadn’t thought of.
To your colleagues, to your customers, even to yourself! If you are not communicating yourself effectively, how do you even expect the business to improve? Always communicate with your colleagues like you would want to be spoken to, encouraging healthy working relationships. Opening up an honest dialogue with customers will encourage them to give feedback on your product.
Communicating with yourself, self talk, and being honest with yourself will keep you positive and hopeful. You will be a more effective leader, counsellor and friend. Running a company begins and ends with you, so make sure you are the best you.
