The 5 Secrets Of Business Success

, WEB ARTIST® - Digital Marketing Agency

Knowing and understanding your business and the business atmosphere around you will benefit you in expanding quicker and more strongly. One of the questions that most entrepreneurs ask is What drives business growth?

To help you grow your business, we put together the following list:

1.Continuous learning

2. Knowledge Management

3. Develop Discipline

4. Make Choices That Work For You

5. Keep Your Mentors Close

To succeed in business today, you need to be flexible and have good planning and organizational skills. Many people start a business thinking that they’ll turn on their computers or open their doors and start making money, only to find that making money in a business is much more difficult than they thought. You can avoid this in your business ventures by taking your time and planning out all the necessary steps to achieve success. Whatever type of business you want to start, using the following 5 tips can help you be successful in your venture.

 

1.Continuous Learning

In a constantly evolving environment, business owners who commit to learning new skills will be better able to adapt to change and keep their business going in challenging conditions. Skills development is also important to many employees and offering these sorts of opportunities can help you retain good employees for longer, as they grow with your business.  With business information readily available these days, there are many affordable ways to learn such as reading books and online articles, watching videos or listening to podcasts. For those who prefer to be instructed directly and learn with others, there are also short courses and workshops. At the other end of the spectrum, there are longer, more formal courses such as certificates and diplomas offered by universities and other learning providers.

To decide what training you or your employees need to do for your business, ask yourself:

  • What am I trying to achieve for my business?
  • What are the gaps in knowledge or skills that are holding my business back?
  • What tasks could I cost-effectively do myself in my business instead of outsourcing, if I had the skills?
  • What am I interested in or inspired to learn more about, that I could apply to improve my business?

 

2. Knowledge Management

All businesses have access to an extensive pool of knowledge – whether this is their understanding of customers’ needs and the business environment or the skills and experience of staff. The way a business gathers, shares and exploits this knowledge can be central to its ability to develop successfully. This doesn’t just apply to huge multinational companies. Knowledge management can benefit everyone from a local newsstand to a manufacturing firm. As a businessperson, it is important to learn about your business atmosphere, the experience required to navigate it and the strategies that have worked for great business people. That knowledge is as important to your survival as oxygen is to human beings. It will help you plan better and make wiser management decisions.

Using knowledge in your business isn’t necessarily about thinking up clever new products and services, or devising ingenious new ways of selling them. It’s much more straightforward.

Useful and important knowledge already exists in your business. It can be found in:

  • the experience of your employees
  • the designs and processes for your goods and services
  • your files of documents (whether held digitally, on paper or both)
  • your plans for future activities, such as ideas for new products or services

 

3. Develop Discipline

Self-discipline has the power to transform your life for the better. Imagine how much you would accomplish if you completed every task you set out to do; or if you established healthy, productive habits and actually followed through. Self-discipline very well may be the key to unlocking your untapped potential. Each challenge we face offers us the opportunity to grow, to improve upon our skillset, to test our edges and to learn new ways to solve problems. Those who are disciplined make their lives easier as their skill sets increase.

 

4. Make Choices That Work For You

In business, there are always choices. Should we do this or should we do that? If we do this, what impact will it have on our bottom line, employees, or customers? If we choose a different approach, what effect will it have on our reputation, branding, or goodwill? If we disrupt the market, will it end up, in the long run, being positive or negative for our business?

The decisions we make may at times seem obvious and easy, but carefully thinking through our options is a necessity for growth and survival. Consider the following five choices that can change a business:

  • Is your focus on competitors or customers?
  • Be a follower or leader?
  • Impede or facilitate employee morale?
  • Nonexistent or existent company culture?
  • Deny or empower employees?

 

5. Keep Your Mentors Close

People with mentors perform better, advance in their careers faster, and even experience more work-life satisfaction. And mentors benefit, too. After all, “to teach is to learn twice.”  Get out a pen and paper, and write out your career goals. Make sure they are smart. Then, list out some of the biggest obstacles to achieving them. This specificity will help you decide what type of mentor you should be looking for. Maybe you need to develop new skills, expand your network in a specific sector, or build confidence to have some tough conversations. By first understanding where you want to be, as well as the biggest opportunities and gaps to getting there, you’ll identify how a mentor can truly be helpful to you.
