Let’s get growing
Business is not static and any successful business owner will tell you that they have had to make changes to their approach or their business model to evolve within their chosen industry.
Consider Darwin’s theory of evolution – Survival of the fittest. This applies to business too, you need to be prepared to change to meet the needs of your target market, and to ensure the growth of your business.
It’s easy to stick to tried and tested methods, but if you’re not seeing real growth in your figures, is your business as usual approach really working?
It can be hard to see what might need changing from within, so don’t be afraid to do some market research, ask your staff or fellow networkers to complete an anonymous survey thus providing you with unbiased information.
Not all feedback may be favourable, so take it on board with an objective view – you are after all looking to make changes.
It can be daunting setting yourself goals for growth and demoralising if they are not achieved. Instead of focusing on where you want to be in a year, break it down into manageable financial or converted prospect targets.
Taking this approach, you are able to see what is really working for your business, and react quickly to something that might not be having the desired impact.

“If your business isn’t growing its dying.. ..sounds harsh but it is true”
As a business coach we always start with the end in mind, and work backwards in small bit sized steps and get real clarity of what needs to change in the next 12 weeks, set those goals and then deliver them.
“Where you will be in five years’ time is down to the books you read, the people you associate with in business, and the Action you take !”[quote Bradley J Sugars, Chairman, ActionCOACH International]
If your thoughts are excellent, and your actions are excellent, so your results will be excellent! So start with your Be x Do = Have.
