1. Speed Up When Things Slow Down
If business is slow, the economy sucks or you want to give your business a kick in the backside - speed up! DO MORE! More networking, more face to face events, more meetings, more interviews, videos, FB Lives, more guest blogging or podcasts!
2. There is NO BOX!
As an employee all told all day what to do: how to dress, what time to turn up, take lunch and go home. What tasks you have to accomplish that day, how they should be done and you have to abide by the rules set within the company you work for.
As an Entrepreneur or Business Owner, YOU MAKE THE RULES! There is no box anymore! You set your working hours, your meetings, your growth rate, your tasks and the way you do them. Try something new, experiment, if it feels right, go for it!
3. Innovate or Die!
Stay on top of your game. Keep ahead of the industry. Check the headlines, learn what's happening in your industry & predict what's coming.
Don't ever let your sales, marketing or business get old. Learn more. Grow more. Take the course, sign up to the site, get a mentor and keep learning new things - DAILY.
4. Let Go & Delegate!
Your business is your baby. You created it, nurtured it and helped it grow. But there will come a time (& it's sooner than you think!) that you will need help! Hire people who are better than you, more knowledgeable than you or faster than you to take over some of the tasks in your business - so you can focus on working on your business.
5. Hold Short Term & Long Term Visions SIMULTANEOUSLY
What you do today affects your business tomorrow. It forges what your business will become next month, next year and 5 years from now.
Project your mind forward and take action today on what you want to have achieved and where you want your company to be in 6 months, 12 months & 12 years time.
