1. Collaborate with Others
More than likely, you will reach various times when you do not have the
appropriate expertise to accomplish something. This is the time
collaboration and/or networking is valuable. These relationships can
help you answer questions, provide guidance, and provide the ongoing
support and encouragement you will need.
2. Customer Relations
Keep your line of communication open with your customers. If they
have a problem, show them the deserved respect and resolve the issue
quickly. Make occasional phone calls to see if they have any needs.
This will let your customers know that you are there for them and care
about their business. This relationship is what is going to keep you on
the road to success. After all, the customer is your link between failure
3. Repositioning and Reflection
On occasion, reflect on what you have accomplished as well as your
open milestones and ensure you are still heading in the right direction.
Repositioning along the way to success is perfectly normal and to be
expected. You may have been struggling with something specific.
Rather than continue battling this issue, reflect on what has not been
working, and reposition yourself so you do not have to keep battling the
same things repeatedly.
4. Accept Responsibility
You and you alone are responsible for your success. While you will have
help in many instances, the bottom line is that you are responsible. You
need to be surrounded by the right people, working with the right
investors, going about meeting your success in the right way. It is you
that will make the choices and therefore, your responsibility to make the
right choices. In other words, your desire for success must always be
greater that any obstacle that stands in your way.
Regardless of what your goal for success is, get involved with your
community. First, get involved with town meetings, the local Chamber
of Commerce, and attend community functions. You will be amazed at
the opportunities for support, business ideas, and financing available
right there in your own neighborhood.
49. Get out of Debt
Take time to get any debts paid off, especially credit card debts that will
cost you a fortune in interest. This is especially important if you will be
seeking funding as a part of your particular success. You want to
ensure that your records and credit are clean if you need to make a
presentation before an investor, asking for money.
