Work an Inspired Small Business Strategy
You are taking the risk by building your business for you. This process works well if you are willing to work in your own name by virtue of your own uniqueness.
Increased compensation is your just reward. Feel good about that. As an entrepreneur you are creating value from an idea. Entrepreneurship is the most honorable profession because we pay the bills to make everything else possible. Without commerce, the exchange of money for business products and services, we would live in a very disorganized and boring world.
Come on now! You know you’ve been pumped up about your business ideas before. You know what original inspiration feels like. As a self-employed small business owner it’s time to treat your business like a business and bring your ideal business vision to life. Now is your time to connect that inspired energy to deliberately chosen strategic actions.
Decide on your inspired small business strategy by taking your vision and breaking it down into objectives. Then break those objectives down into projects, programs and strategic actions that are each designed to make the objectives manifest.
Now is the time to zoom in on the specifics. Here’s a simple process to work each objective.
1). Specifically what am I looking to accomplish?
2). What are all the actions I could take to accomplish this objective?
3). What measurable outcomes will prove that I’ve accomplished it?
4). Act, observe and adjust.
5). What worked well about taking these actions?
6). What adjustments can I make now to get better results?
Keep focused on your big picture vision, as a small business strategy. By all means, don’t sit on your ass. Read what Kathy Hendershot-Hurdat has to say about following through.
