9 Powerful Ways To Build A Motivated And Efficient Team

Creating and managing a business as a solo entrepreneur is one thing, but what about when things take off and you have to hire a whole team to keep things running smoothly?

How To Generate Change, Action And Create Results In Your Business

How do we create real impact in business? It begins with change, because we can’t create anything differently if we continue to do the same thing. To put that change into effect, it requires action, which is the next step in creating impact. And in taking that action, we aim to drive desired results. Impact = Change > Action > Result So, how do you generate change, action, and results in your business? CHANGE “Insanity: doing the same thing over [...]

8 Ways To Own Your Personal Power In Business And Make The Most Impact

Your personal power, or personal influence, in business comes from recognising who you are and using this in a positive way to gain respect from your employees and create the most success. When you use authority without drawing on your personal power, it will likely lead to compliance from your staff; but when you do draw on your personal power, it will lead to commitment. And that’s what you’re striving for - healthier, long-term partnerships that are built on mutual [...]

9 Top Tips For Landing Page Copy That Converts

As they say in business, sales solve everything. But how do you increase your sales? A great landing page is a must when it comes to converting visitors into paying customers, which is why it’s crucial that you pay attention to the fine print. You only have a few seconds to get the attention of those visitors, so if you can successfully show them how they can benefit from what you’re selling and why they need it, they’ll be that [...]

How To Manage Business Growing Pains In 2019.

When you think of a failing business, usually you’d assume it must have been due to a lack of money, slow sales, or even poor planning and execution. But in reality, huge business growth and strong sales can be the downfall of small businesses — if they’re completely unprepared for it. When your business grows, problems like high expenses, inventory shortages or delays, too few staff, and a lack of direction are all common. In order to avoid these problems, [...]

The Key To Reinventing Your Business Begins With Reinventing Yourself

If you’re looking around at your business and feel like you need to make some big changes, it’s important to take a look at yourself first. Reinventing your business begins with reinventing yourself. What does your life look like? Do you feel fulfilled, and confident? Are you taking care of yourself, emotionally, physically, and spiritually? Do the people in your life energise and inspire you, or drain you? If you’re unsure whether your life needs reinventing, here are some key signs [...]

Does Your Business Need Reinventing? Find Out Inside…

The only thing we are sure of in life and business is change. It’s unavoidable, and it’s what so many of us fear, because of its uncertainty and unpredictability. Preparing for this as business owners are our job because if we don’t remain fluid in ourselves and our path forward, we risk running ourselves into the ground by being out of touch with consumers and their needs. There are many things that drive small businesses towards reinvention. These can range [...]

Reinvention For Business Owners: 6 Critical Areas You Must Focus On To Stay In The Game

Reinventing your business when you’ve spent years, or perhaps decades, mapping it out and building it up from scratch is daunting. A part of you might resist change because you’re so attached to your business, and it’s become like a child to you. Another part of you might think it’s crazy to pivot in a new direction now, after spending so much time heading in a different one. Switching directions every few months, or doing so without careful thought would [...]

How To Be Successful By Doing Nothing

Can you really be successful by doing nothing? Have you ever thought about why we need to win at things? Just completing something generally isn’t good enough, right? I think it’s our competitive human nature that drives us, sometimes to the brink of destruction. I have been there many times - no sleep for days, working to the edge of my capabilities, and then there are other people who make my efforts seem like child’s play. So, can we ever [...]

How To Deal With A Team Member That Has Gone Rogue

Do you have a team member who has gone rogue? In any small to medium-sized business (defined by Harvard Business Review as under 200 employee’s and $100 MM in T/O), there are so many moving parts, which are overwhelming at times. Add human decision-making and emotions to the mix, and complications arise that can either make or break an attempt. This is why being a CEO with staff requires you to not only manage yourself but an entire team of different [...]

How To Make A Business Work When You Have A Business or Life Partner Involved

Business is tough enough on its own, without adding a life or business partner to the mix. There are thousands of businesses out there where a spouse, partner, or friend get involved and becomes part of the business. The horror stories of dissolved partnerships and businesses going to the wall, resulting in a split, or even worse, a failed marriage are also in the thousands. So, why is it so hard to keep the business on the straight and narrow? [...]

5 Most Important Sale Metrics You Must Know When Running A Business

Are you measuring your business performance? If not, how do you know if things are improving, or going downhill? And if you are, what do you measure? For a business to succeed, it’s important to track your work, sales, and financial figures.
