Know Your Values to Build a Business

January 12, 2013 at 9:21 pm Leave a comment

There are values that are held as a society, as a community, within our religions, our industries, our interest groups. We adhere to these values, usually without even thinking about them. If we don’t we risk ostracism.

We also have personal values. Our values underpin all we do.

When we find ourselves ‘stuck’ it’s often that we are trying to do something that we are feeling is working against our values. For instance, if one of our values is freedom, then marketing your service so that you are so busy you feel trapped is working against that value.

Understanding your values helps you design a business that works for you.

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.
