Aside – It Doesn’t Always Work

April 15, 2010 at 11:01 pm Leave a comment

Nobody is perfect.  Nobody has a perfect life.  There are whole minutes, hours, days weeks, months and even years that feel awful.  Do you remember the Queens Annus Horribilis?

What do you do when that happens?  Best bet?  Grieve and move on.  Which I know is much easier said than done.

Grieve.  Cry. Mourn the loss.  Let yourself feel what you gave up, what you didn’t get, what you had hoped for, what you

had and lost.

Then move on.  Learn from what happened.  Look for a new way.  Try something else.  Ask around.  Do some research and reading.  Find a new way and do it.

I lost a big client this month.  I’m not happy about it, but it has made me rethink where I am and what I am doing.  Next time I see them, I’m going to thank them.

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.
