If you look really closely, most over night successes took a long timeSteve Jobs
The biggest mistake we can make in business is not approaching it in the right mode. We are in business, the doors are open but we haven’t set up the right systems, we haven’t developed the right expectations… we are in waiting mode, waiting for that overnight success to appear. To be honestly that never too rarely happens. Jump in the drivers seat and work towards it..
Grab a pen and paper or open up a new spreadsheet, for this step you need to jot down where you are at right now in your business. In order to survive you need to know where you are starting. This is the most comforting part of being in business is identify where you are at right now.
From here you are going to be able to see if your head is above water or below. You can then also make moves reduce unnecessary expenses, follow up with your clients. This is something that should be completed monthly and reviewed weekly.
Super duper simple and 1000% essential!

There is no I in Team!
Have open lines of communication with your team, as in order for them to do their job to best of their ability they need to know what is expected of them and of the team at large.
Sometimes the conversations are going to be tough but they need to happen. Both for you and for them.
In business the most flexible Wins
No I am not talking about being flexible with your values and your mission or even the level of service you provide. But I am talking about the way you deliver your products and services or maybe the types of products and services you offer. Being staunch or stuck in the mud is as good as putting a nail in the coffin
This goes without saying!
Proactive trumps Reactive why because we show up differently. Coming from a Reactive place we will often be angry or rude but being Proactive makes us feel like we are in control. Put moves in place that you and your future business will thank you for moving forward!
You were born to win and programmed to fail! Be brave & step into it
No one ever said being in business would be easy, and if they did you were lied too. But after being in business for the past 15 years, I can tell you that despite all the challenges and obstacles, it is worth every minute! Go forth and make it happen, set yourself up with systems that will help you Survive so then you can moving to Thriving Mode…
Let’s make magic happen!
