This week, we wanted to share some of our most helpful tips when it comes to helping you grow your business! These are five of the things that we learned over the years that we focus on and practice every single day. They aren’t hard, but they are super helpful! We hope that these tips help you find success in starting or growing your business!
1. LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY
Entrepreneurship is all about solving problems and learning on the go! It’s an exciting proves and as entrepreneurs, we should it a goal to learn something new every day. With TED Talks, podcasts, YouTube, and Coursera all available right at your fingertips – and for free – there’s no excuse not to! Make it a priority to sit down for 20-30 minutes a day and learn a new skill or idea! Constantly learning is part of the gift of entrepreneurship and will only help to elevate and grow yourself and your business!
2. BRAND YOURSELF
No matter what you do, it’s important to have a strong, consistent, personal brand! But the reality is that you actually have to EARN the privilege of being able to build your personal brand. Nothing substitutes hard work. Not even logos, color palettes, or strong social media hashtags. Build the foundation of your business on your knowledge, your passion, hard work and hustle and only then can you move into building a strong brand for yourself!
3. LEARN TO DISCONNECT
It’s easy to lock yourself in your room and work all day long and into the night. But learning how to disconnect from it all is just as important as being able to work hard! You need rest – mentally, physically and spiritually. Disconnecting allows you to give your body and your brain the necessary reset it requires to be able to function healthily, happily, and give you the energy to help solve the problems you’re facing that day.
4. STOP WAITING FOR THE PERFECT TIME - THERE ISN'T ONE
A large problem with entrepreneurs is that they never really "start", and most business ideas end before they ever actually begin! Stop waiting for the perfect product, the perfect idea, the prefect time. Because really - there isn’t one! So, don’t keep waiting for "someday"… because it will never come. Instead, learn to work with what you have, embrace it and you will find better tools, better products, and better ideas as you move forward. Excuses and justifications are easy to come up with when it comes to explaining why you haven’t started yet. But once you acknowledge that there will never be a perfect time then that's when you will start getting a lot more meaningful work done every single day!
5. DO THE HARDEST THING FIRST, EVERY SINGLE MORNING
Whenever you start your workday, tackle the task you find the most difficult to do or most likely to procrastinate on. When we postpone these kinds of assignments until later in the day we often get stressed about them and keep postponing them on and on and on. Always make sure that you start off your day doing the most difficult thing first, every single morning to ensure that you get the most out of your workday flow and feel good about what you’ve accomplished at the end of your day!
