4 Strategies That Will Reset Your Business

In a recent blog post, I talked about how you can get back in the driver's seat for your company. Too often in this business we feel out of control, and that keeps us from moving toward our goals with CONFIDENCE. If you're in that place now, where you need to reset everything and move forward, I've got 4 fail-safe ways for you to make a fresh start! They will work whether you've been in business for 20 years or 2 years!! AND, on top of those 4 amazing tips, if you read all the way to the bottom of this post, I'll give you one more BONUS idea that will rock your world! So let's get started...

1. Change Your Financial Attitude

There are two ways that most small business owners deal with their company's finances - with a bad attitude or by ignoring them. NOT cool. Neither one of those tactics is going to help you hit any success goal posts! So let's reset your attitude about money. Instead of seeing your financials as "the enemy," view them as a means to an end. Knowing what is going out and what is coming in will actually REDUCE your stress! It gives you a sense of control because it shows you a path to success and what you need to do to get there. Meeting regularly with your financial team allows you to plan for any hiccups and to avoid major issues heading your way. So reverse your attitude and see your company's finances as the way to give you freedom in the future!

2. Professionalize How You Deal with Clients

From the minute you meet with a prospective client, you have a chance to make the very best impression and to ensure that any client is going to give you glowing recommendations in the future! Clients really can make - or break - your business. So the key is to be as professional as possible. From the minute you onboard them, and along every step of the project, you want to over deliver on your services and to make THEM feel like the star of the show. You should communicate often, meet those deadlines, and convince them that you are the BEST steward of their investment! Uplevel every single part of your customer service process and you'll reap BIG rewards (pssst - click here to learn how you can get a jumpstart!).

3. Systemize Everything!

There is a reason that I keep talking about systems and processes. Because they WORK! I have been running my U.S. business from countries as far away as India and Hungary. The ONLY way I can do that is with processes and systems that work every single time. Those repeatable processes allow you to stop dropping the ball on essential design details. They allow you to stay focused and to run a more efficient and effective business. Keep reading for a very easy short cut to getting your business buttoned up and systemized!

4. Keep Your Focus

This is one of the BIGGEST strategies that very successful business owners always have in place. FOCUS. Don't let yourself become distracted by what other designers are doing - keep your eye on YOUR goals. Don't define success by some arbitrary idea of what you "should" be doing in your business. YOU are the one who determines what success is for your company. Don't think that you need to have a lot of other ancillary businesses running at once - they will take your attention off of your CORE vision. Stay focused on what you need to do to hit YOUR goals.
