We all want to run successful, thriving companies.
Weʼre passionate about who we are & what we do.
We believe that our products or services provide real value to our community.
In this post, I will be sharing three things that most great businesses do in hopes
that youʼre inspired to implement them to the work youʼre doing in the world.
1.) Great businesses donʼt tolerate good.
Have you heard the quote, “Be willing to eliminate the good in order to achieve
the great?” In order to stand out & be ahead of the competition in your
industry, you have to be the better player on the field. This requires you to
make tough calls, like not using a certain design on social media because it
didnʼt deliver the “man, thatʼs great!” factor. Not publishing a video on
YouTube if the moral of the story didnʼt come across in a great way. Not
keeping an employee on staff who doesnʼt value where they work. You want to
create a great business & that means making short term sacrifices for the long
term game of your company.
2.) Great businesses know that company culture matters.
The environment that you create around the work you do, will make or break
the future outcome of your company. If your business is still a one-man or
woman show, your culture still matters. How do you feel when you walk into
your office for the day? What do you do when you have a lack of creativity?
How do you feel when you get something wrong? What do you do when itʼs
almost 5 oʼclock? A companies culture matters if itʼs just you working for the
business or you have ten employees. You need to create an environment that
sets you, your company & itʼs people up for success. They need a culture that
enables them to thrive & that starts with you being the leader & establishing
core values for how your business will run on the day to day.
3.) Great businesses care about their customers.
You have a business because of the customers or clients who buy a product or
service from you. Your community needs to be one of your biggest priorities if
you have intentions of finding long term success in your industry. You need to
over-deliver, over care, over create, over impress and over show up for the
audience that you have. Whether thatʼs 20 people, 2,000 or 20,000. If you love
on your community, they are going to love & support you right back.
Thank you for reading this post. I hope it inspires you to create a life & business
that you love!
