Who knows how this little hooligan would answer that question . . . but what about you? What are your hopes and dreams for your business? Do you have a bucket list for its future – things you want to accomplish, people you’d like to meet, places you’d like to go? Let’s consider what you might put in that bucket and see how you would answer the question, “What’s next?”
Things to Do
What would you like to do to grow your business? If your business has been established for a while, you might remember keeping track of everything with pen and paper. You might have had file folders up the wazoo, crammed full of records about current customers, recent purchases, and business agreements. Not any more! Think of how computers have revolutionized the business world! What would you like to do so that your business steps up to the next level? Any items to put on your list of things to do? Take the plunge and do those.
Places to Go
You can learn much from those who have done well in business, but you can also get guidance from those who have tried this and that and not done so well. Those stories may give you a different perspective about what might work well for you and your business. Go to some of your local business clubs and see if it’s a good fit. If so, put their weekly or monthly meetings on your calendar. Check national organizations and choose a conference or workshop to attend. The program might inspire you to make changes to your plan. The people you meet might share tips and techniques with you. Or maybe you could take some college courses that are specific to business development. Go places to soak in more knowledge.
People to See
We all know folks whose careers have skyrocketed. Nothing they do seems to go sour. They’ve got a solid business plan, and they seem to be in the right place at the right time, saying the right things and selling the right product. Anyone you’d like to learn from? There are people out there who share what they’ve learned. Perhaps their book has topped the Best Sellers list or maybe they offer podcasts and online training sessions. It could be that one of your business heroes belongs to the same gym as you do. Seek them out. Ask questions. Get answers. See where those lessons will take your business.
Maybe, though, to be a billionaire is at the top of your bucket list. That’s thinking big – and you are to be congratulated! The tactics listed above may get you closer to having that fatter bank account. Another way is to launch your business online and expand it beyond your locale.
