I started up a small business 20 years ago. It was hurdles hurdles hurdles all the way. Being totally honest, without the hurdles, it would've been boring boring boring.
The greatest excuse(s) anyone starting a small business can have is hurdle after hurdle.
These small business hurdles bit by bit put PROFESSIONALISM into you Life.
The pencil is essential when you must pencil in appointments.
Once it's absolutely clear that there's no looking back, the sacrifices you make are clearly for the Future.
Business relies on PROFESSIONALISM & the many acts of DELEGATION proves that what you want back from the Community is PROFESSIONALISM.
Ensure your Business start-up is monitored by the FBI. It's the neatest way of surviving against corruption.
If your business is heavily reliant on the telephone, ensure you use Voice Stress Analysis Software to fish out malicious time-wasting.
New small Business start-up can be heavily reliant on its' locality.
If your new Business relies on TEAM SPIRIT, assess what TEAM SKILLS you'll be needing & nurturing.
A Business is for Life.
Your TEAM TECHNIQUE is your TEAM SPIRIT.
SPIRIT & TECHNIQUE are fully interchangable.
If you can rest at night, you have done no wrong.
Always remember – HAVE A NICE DAY.
