11 Business Hacks To Help Your Business Thrive!

Understand what is really holding your business back.

Unfortunately the reality is it’s probably you! In our experience many businesses are on the verge of thriving but the beliefs, mindset and actions of the owners is what is holding the business back. So have a good look at yourself as a business owner and seek to understand what your limiting beliefs are.

Hack # 1 – Understand yourself more

Spend time working ON the business
Many business owners spend all their time working IN the business. That is on the tools, floor etc and ‘stuck’ in the daily grind of keeping the doors open. Start spending some time working ON the business. Overviewing the strategy, putting a game plan in place and introducing new ideas and thoughts. We always recommend that this is done outside of the business premises. It could be a coffee meeting to get the ideas flowing.

Hack #2 – Allocate regularly some time to work ON your business

Stop procrastinating!
Many business owners we work with have a common theme of procrastination. Even if you’re not a procrastinator we find many business owners are inefficient with their time and spend a heap of time burning rubber rather than Thriving. Why not create an Ideal Week? Design your week to get the things done you want to get done and make sure you lock in times for working ON your business (see Hack # 2)

Hack #3 – Plan your Ideal Week

Plan for every day and Get S#!t Done
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” – Benjamin Franklin. Being prepared (planned) for the day, week, month, quarter or year is vital to a Thriving business. Business Owners can have thousands of things running through their minds daily. The ‘To Do’ lists could be huge and it’s easy to let some slip. We are all human after all! So make sure you lock in 5 – 10 minutes at the start and the end of the day to review your plan and tasks. Record tasks and tick them off! There is nothing more powerful than ticking something off your list!

Hack #4 – Plan your daily and weekly tasks

Do you spend time doing tasks that you don’t enjoy, and not doing the things you should be doing?

Hack #5 – Be Authentic

Staff, customers and suppliers all react well to a level of authenticity. BUT don’t be a victim and a whinger as no one really wants to deal with these types of people! Be humble, authentic and Love Your Business more.

Hack #6 – Practice being more Authentic in your business

Listen to this IdeaCast from Harvard Business Review https://hbr.org/2007/05/harvard-business-ideacast-43-a.html Spend time growing your staff (and yourself) For many businesses your staff can be your biggest asset. Invest in their growth and development. BUT ensure that the training (internal or external) has a real and measurable Return on Investment for the business. BUT also make sure as a business owner you also invest in growing your own skills, knowledge and experience too!

Aunty Google does not have the answer to everything. Nothing is more powerful than a human mind at work. Two heads are always better than one, so put your ego aside and ask for help! Surround yourself with a community of like-minded people and get access to coaching and professional advice. Forget about the HOW “How is the death nail to any possibility” – Sally Anderson. Many business do not Thrive because they get bogged down in the HOW before making the decision. Businesses that Thrive tend to make a decision, do their homework and during this process the how always shows up.
