The 7 Traits Every Small Business Owner Needs to Grow Their Business

7-traits-naomi-mc-laughlan

Have you ever wondered how you may grow your business? Do you need to focus more on strategy, sales and marketing or growing your team? Yes, yes and yes…but foremost you need to work on you own mind-set! You need to have a vision in mind for your business. Where do you want to be in a year from now, five years or even ten?

Furthermore, here are 7 Traits You Need to Grow Your Business to the Next Level

1.A strong Sense of Purpose; Most leaders who have achieved documented growth, e.g. the late Steve Jobs, discover that it takes more than the promise of increasing financial reward to fuel their aspirations and ambitions. They find a higher calling than simply the pursuit of “more money.”

2.Outstanding Market Intelligence; You need to focus strongly on trends and changes in your marketplace. Do not fall behind or victim of the strategic drift, due to working too much ‘in’ and not ‘on’ your business. Always focus on the bigger picture.

3.Effectively Plan for Growth; Without planning for growth, it will most likely not happen by ‘magic’. Therefore, journal about it, make a plan, implement and monitor all actions and adjust and regularly update your approach to stay up-to-date.

4.Customer Focused Processes; Listen to what your customers and clients need and what. This includes to provide an outstanding customer service and after-sales plan. Strive to provide your customers with a high quality, faster, cheaper and better product and / or service then any of your competitors.

5.Utilize Technology; There are endless, often free, tools available, so use them to your advantage.

6.Establish an Outstanding Team; Hire slow and fire fast. Focus on hiring, training and retaining the best and the brightest people you can afford. Also, focus on talent and aptitude and not just on official professional or academic qualification.

7.See the Future; Diligently monitor and interpret the micro- and macro forces of change affecting your environment. For example, consider how your business can contribute positively to society and the environment, become a leader in your community.
