Finding your Strengths

May 18, 2009 at 9:40 pm Leave a comment

It makes sense to work to your strengths, but how do you figure out what they are?

You know you are working to your strengths when you feel energized, excited and happy doing a task. What were you doing the last time you felt like that?

Break down the job into it’s component parts to get at the part that made you feel so good. Is it the creativity of cooking – a dash of this; a pinch of that? Or is it the chopping, measuring and handling of the ingredients? Do you love coordinating all the parts so they done at the same time? Or do you love thinking up new ways to pair interesting foods?

Think about what you do to that makes you happy and try to do more of it.

If you are stuck about how to do that, leave a comment here, maybe others can help.

The Three Success Factors

I have worked closely with 100’s of business owners and I have seen too many struggle. I have seen what works and what doesn't.

It takes 3 things to succeed:
1. Hard work - and I know you do that already.
2. Knowledge - domain knowledge: you've got that and continue to learn; and business knowledge: this is where everyone focuses and it's easy to find
3. Mindset - This is the killer app. This is what makes or breaks small business owners.

We work on Mindset here at the Business Owners Success Club: how you think about yourself and your business.

When you focus on a business that gives you what you need to live a Good Life and gives others what they need to solve a problem, everything else falls into place and you have a successful business.

Using that as a framework we work on one aspect of business every month. February is "Your Place in Your Community" month.

In March we will open the doors to our online community. Stay Tuned.
