There is so much power in a proven process (which I have done). I wanted to share with you 5 key things I learned in my personal entrepreneurial journey. These are key things that have contributed to me building a 6 then 7 figure business.
The planning stage of your business is equally as crucial as the implementation.You can’t build a solid house without a firm foundation. Before you get started, draft a solid business plan, marketing plan, and implementation system. They don’t need to be perfectly mapped out, but making sure that you begin the process is so important.
In building your business, start small, then scale.Even if your business plan and research suggests you are off to success, it is advisable to start small. This is especially true if you are just starting off in that niche/industry. You still have the capacity to invest time in perfecting your strategy and processes before taking on more clients. Speak to your early clients about their experience. Now use this information to make the necessary changes.
In business, numbers don’t lie.If your business or marketing plan shows a positive or a negative figure, then you best believe that it will manifest. If your plan suggests a negative, don’t launch anyway and hope for the best. You need to make changes to the variables until you reach a more favorable outcome. Ensure your numbers are backed by your research and tests.
Keep a close eye on your numbers.If you had 10 new clients in Month 1 & 2, then you can expect that your intentional strategy will result in similar numbers in the next month. However, if those numbers suggest you need to scale in the months or years to come, then plan accordingly in advance. Also, if you plan to bring on extra help, now is the time to start drafting your SOPs, as you carry out your day to day.
In business, change is the only constant.To stand the test of time, create or predict trends, and be prepared to pivot. Marketing methods change fast, and so will your clients expectations, their journey, their mindset, and behavior. So you’ll want to keep an eye out for these changes.
