A proactive business owner understands that communication and problem solving is key to having a growing and thriving business. These three tips will help you to continue in your trek towards entrepreneurship.
Invest Time in Problem Solving (and Prevention)
The best way to solve a problem is to get to the root of the problem. Why is JD Tech, Inc. unhappy? What can I (and my team) do to resolve these issues? Why didn’t the client receive the data sooner? Underestimating the job and not delivering as promised are just some of the reasons why clients can become unhappy and less inclined to stay with your company. Ask yourself these questions, solve these issues, learn from these experiences and you will be well on your way to a more proactive business.
Speak with other Business Owners
Believe it or not, you are not alone! Network, network, network! Networking online is one of the easiest ways to find out what other business owners are doing and going through. Face-to-face meeting is also equally as important because you get to place the name, website, and logo with the face! Communicating with other business owners can increase your network, show strategies in effective entrepreneurship, and could also refer you to potential customers.
Communicate with employees, clients, vendors.
Feedback is important in any business endeavor. Feedback keeps you connected to people that directly impact your business. I would suggest setting aside a 15 minute call with your vendors. Take out time to show appreciation to your clients, they keep your business alive. Last, but certainly not least, let you team know that they are important and appreciated, they are your lifeline.
I wish you all the best of success in your business!
