When your business finally starts to get traction, don’t give up. When the going gets good, double down to help your business grow. You can accomplish this on a personal and a business level.
A lot of times when things “pop-off” founders rush to raise capital. Fair enough. But what if you look back on growth to find what YOU did to get you to the now, and then double down? I bet your results might provide a better outcome than an investor breathing down your back.
Also, why not build on your own skills? Like public speaking. What impact would this have on speaking to prospects and valuable clients? And then what if you reinvest into the infrastructure of your business? So many times when success hits, we forget to update to hardware, software, or even people. These things can become dated. They become slower. Ineffective. It’s time to upgrade yaaaaaa.
The whole idea here is to make your business stronger than ever, exactly how you got it going. Invest in automating tasks that work. Cut out the tasks that don’t. Making these growth changes can only help you when times get tough, globally speaking. Do you want to crumble with the competition or weather the storm?
