12 More Steps to Achieve Your Dream Business
Are you a small business owner who continues to have questions about how to have the business of your dreams? Do you want to build or start your own business? I have created more steps to help you achieve the business of your dreams as a welcome addition to any system you may already be using.
1. Why do you call it a Dream Business?
A Dream business owner is committed and passionate with the desire to create more time and success for the client, make more money for themselves and enjoy life. Dreams can be difficult to attain, however, it is the pinnacle for a small business owner. With a plan, all business dreams can be attained.
2. What is the first step a business owner or entrepreneur should take to create a Dream business? Choose personal values.
Values are like your personal operating system. Values are also called guidelines, principles or qualities.
Values help you stay inspired and motivated. Values help you define what is important to you, and what is important about your business. Do your personal and business values align? Values provide you with a strong foundation; a method for living your life to it’s fullest. Clarity is about who you are and what you stand for.
If you already have values that you live by and bring into your business, check to see if they are in alignment with your goals and mission and vision. If they are, great! If they are not, you will be dissatisfied, unhappy and not generate the results you want.
Choose four values and live with your chosen values for thirty days. Re-evaluate at the end of thirty days. If you need to change them, do so.
3. Many business owners share how drained they are. Is there a strategy you can suggest to help them? Learn how to overcome energy drainers, or tolerations, to stop being drained. Tolerations are the little aggravations that waste your time and use your energy. Tolerations can become big stressors if ignored.
When you eliminate tolerations, you constantly produce improvements in both your business and personal life.
Let’s say you have a missing client, or a habit, such as too much social media, that may be taking up your time. Or you are busy deleting constant email messages instead of unsubscribing to so many groups.
Each time you become aware of this, you waste energy feeling guilty about not handling it properly. This drains your energy. Small tolerations accumulate and build up to a point where you don’t even want to get out of bed in the morning!
A solution is to create a list of at least ten (10) things that you are tolerating right now. Remember to write them down. Choose your Top Five and plan on removing at least these five (5) in thirty (30) days. Eliminating small tolerations can sometimes eliminate bigger ones along the way.
4. As a business owner or entrepreneurs we have so much to do. What is the best way to leverage our tasks?
I advocate my Daily Dream Business System, which consists of 3 Daily High Value Activities.
Systems are vital to help keep you focused and organized. The Daily Dream Business System is probably the number one focal point to help keep your eye on the prize. For those of you who may have long to-do lists, completing only three tasks per day may seem insufficient.
Why only three tasks per day, you may ask. What you are doing with three tasks is to leverage your information.
One article can leverage your exposure multi-fold. You can publish it on EzineArticles.com, post it on your blog, twitter it to your connections, offer it to your Facebook friends or fan page and make it part of an upcoming book or special report.
5. What is your best secret to attract more clients and more money to your dream business?
Do you want to know a secret to attract more clients and money easily and effortlessly?
Include different price points for your clients.
In order to get known, liked and trusted, people want to experience you. What better way than to provide no-cost offers such as: newsletters, articles, presentation and tele-classes (classes via telephone conference calls).
After you determine these potential new clients are a fit for your business or practice, then offer them higher fee products and services.
Pricing is very subjective. Do you want to price your products or services to just make a sale or do you want to have a variety of prices to keep your prospects interested?
Higher fee products can include a weekend event, products that include CDs and booklets, and one-on-one coaching and consulting.
