Success can mean different things to different people yet the effort and dedication they put into achieving success are the same. However, the desire to be successful can become so strong that regardless of what we do, we feel that nothing positive seems to be coming out from all our hard work. We criticize ourselves so much that we become clouded to our own successes.
What are the signs that you’ve finally made it? What are the signs that you’ve finally achieved success?
Growing too fast is just as detrimental to your business as no growth at all. You have to strike a fine balance between healthy growth and maintaining your business foundation. You cannot sacrifice one over the other. Businesses today want rapid growth. Everything needs to be done as soon as possible not knowing that impatience is the most common cause of financial disasters. Some things just take time and that includes company growth. If you are currently in the stages of upscaling your business, watch out for these signs of growing too fast.
For most small businesses, and even some big ones, growth is the main objective. Personally, I love that as a goal. It’s a goal worth pursuing and the journey towards it is exciting. If there is room to grow, why not go for it? Challenge yourself. Let your genius work. Yes, failing is a possibility but with the right mindset, failures just become tools that can be utilised to achieve one’s goals. With that said, planning on upscaling your company is completely different from actually executing it. You will encounter issues that if are not dealt with will cause your business to suffer.
Growing a business is a complicated endeavor. You can’t always stick with what works when upscaling. You may need to completely change your processes or at least adjust them to be just as efficient during large scale operations.

A company’s success relies on your team’s ability to be able to effectively execute strategies and carry out complex projects. Plans and strategies may look perfect on paper yet it is up to you and your team to actually put them in motion. In this article, let’s discuss what are the benefits and the value of accountability.
What does it take to get most of the work done in your company? What moves your company towards its goal? What is it that keeps your company operating on a daily basis? Is it you, the business owner? Partially, yes. However, you cannot do it alone. You need a team to help you run your business.
In fact, by not following-through, you are wasting any time and effort you have already spent on achieving the goal. It’s just smart and logical to follow-through. It’s a simple choice yet why are we not doing it?
As an entrepreneur, you want your staff to have the same level of passion you have for the business. You want them to have the same enthusiasm as you do in trying to achieve the company goals. When the team has this type of attitude, taking ownership of one’s work is just second nature. As the business owner, how can you accomplish this?
Following up is the communication-based of building trust while following through is the action-based of building trust. Following through continues until the action is completed. If you don’t have one, you are not alone. Generating and following up on leads is already common knowledge in business. What is often overlooked is following through. This stage is where things get done. This is what seals the deal.
