It’s April, and the Tax Man cometh. Let’s not forget the other issues that may be taxing your business. As a successful business owner, you must be able to adapt to changing circumstances…
Picture a successful company that you admire. What is it about that business that you attribute to its success? How does it compare to the traits in your own company?
Achievements should not be an event but a continuum. Habits built gradually and given positive reinforcement will linger. Most importantly, they have to mean something to you personally.

A negative focus makes us weaker; it drains our energy and demotivates—however, mindset matters for you and your team. We will only change our outcomes if we first change our attitude.

Planning is an important element of business. Having a working action plan can make the difference from having record sales or going bust.
Many successful entrepreneurs have grown an enterprise that extends beyond their own skillset. Work is either delegated to outsourced contractors or a handful of employees. This helps complete more projects and grow sales. Yet I found many owners suffer from a common trait that doesn’t discriminate based on the size of business or number of employees.
