Grab a cup of tea or coffee and let’s share some ideas for the week.
Did you achieve what you had set out to do last week? Take a look at last week’s Memo:
Have you tried anything in the Memo?
Look , behavior never lies. DO you truly want your business to prosper and advance?
For some of you there are still pandemic restrictions but that does not mean just placing one or two adds on social media and taking the rest of the day off.
Are you keeping in touch with your clients – sharing tips and ideas to keep them engaged?
If you are in the food business how are you dealing with the fresh or canned produce? Have you checked the expiry dates on the cans and have you arranged to freeze the fresh produce placing markings on them to indicate what the bag has and the expiry date? What plans do you have for food that are close to the expiry dates?
Hair salons could provide tips on handling various types of hair. Recheck products to see which products are being sold and placing orders as needed. Those in the beauty business could start sharing the benefits of using their products. Those of you who produce natural products are there ways to improve on your efficiency?
Some small business do not have proper documentation of their work processes, now that there are restrictions, and there has to be rotation of staff there are problems, because they may not have a clue how the work was being completed. Do you have proper procedures for your business operations so that if somebody is absent your business can operate smoothly? You can give me a call if you need help with this. This is not just how the company operates but what each person does and how.
Do you have a back up plan. Lots of businesses would have been caught off guard because they had no back up plan. These plans are necessary so that when disaster strikes you are prepared to do business, though maybe in a smaller scale. If you need to put this in place I can help. Are you able to access your business information from home?
These are all things you need to look at. The world has changed we are no longer doing business as normal. You do not want to waste time. For you Time is money. You want to take massive action so that if you are in a lock down when business re-opens you are ready to move.
There is also no complaining and blaming anyone, everything starts with you. You could turn all the lockdowns and missed opportunities into something good. We are not perfect and everybody makes mistakes for fail. The truth is there are no mistakes or failures, only opportunities for you to improve, be better at what you do or just be a better person.
Remember you are not in business by yourself so share your successes as well as your failures as you never know when an opportunity would arise.
