>>>The secret to winging it!

Hi there,

Have you said yes to a project, speaking engagement or commitment and caught yourself saying ‘I will just wing it’ knowing full well you weren’t totally ready?

You throw yourself in the deep end and go with your gut instinct, trusting that things will miraculously fall into place.  And do you know, 9 times out of 10 they do!  When you trust yourself enough to step up, the urge to overthink and put hurdles in the way of doing your best work are taken away.  This is an entrepreneurial mindset, to jump in and make it happen.  Does this sound like you?

In reality, we as business owners wing it every day. If you have been in business long enough, you will have ample benchmarks to know what works and doesn’t work for you.  When you are on a roll, it comes naturally to make decisions on the spot and wing it.

But what if you have reached a point in your business you have been questioning ‘where to from here?’  Has the excitement of growing a profitable business worn off, or things have not quite gone to plan…

Now is the time to start planning for an extraordinary 2019.  Where do you want you and your business to be in the next 3, 6, 12 months and beyond?  What could you really achieve if you put your mind to it?

What is your secret weapon going to be to keep you on track and achieving the goals and targets you have set yourself?  You may not wish to take on a partner in your business, but have you considered engaging a mentor as an accountability partner?

The right accountability partner can help you identify weaknesses in your business, make plans to overcome them and hold you accountable for action.  They will keep you on track and help you move your business forward.

Here are some points to challenge your thinking in growing your business over the next 12 months:

1.    Are your current systems and processes keeping you tied to the business versus working on the business?

2.    Have you committed to innovation – new products and services in the pipeline to launch on the market?

3.    Do you have several streams of revenue sources to cover the quieter times in your business?

4.    What are you doing to stand out from your competitors?

Keep winging it, never stand still, make mistakes and fail forward.

To your success….
