I wish I did these things SOONER In my Small Business

As a small business owner, let me be honest with you for a moment. In the early seasons of business, we often find ourselves stumbling around, trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t. We push through, learning as we go, until we grasp the essential elements and discard the unnecessary ones. Today, I want to share with you the things I wish I had done sooner in my business. Implementing these strategies would have accelerated my business’s growth, making it more efficient and successful. By learning from my experiences, you can gain a clearer vision and achieve rapid growth in your own business.

Separate Your Business Finances for Greater Clarity

If you find yourself in a situation where your hard-earned revenue goes directly into your bank account, only to be used for personal expenses such as car payments, then this is for you. In the early stages of business, revenue can be inconsistent, making it difficult to allocate funds to different areas. Often, your revenue becomes an “extra” addition to your personal income, all mingled together in the same account. I must confess that I made this mistake for far longer than I should have.

However, if you’re serious about your business and it’s not just a side gig, your revenue deserves to be treated as business income, not as an “extra.” Regardless of the size or consistency of your revenue, it’s essential to open a separate checking account exclusively for your business transactions. This separation will bring clarity to your funds and allow you to make investments in your business without feeling guilty about impacting your personal finances. Additionally, it will make your payouts much more satisfying. Imagine $2,200 dropping into your account, a feeling akin to working for someone else. But there’s nothing quite like writing your own check for $2,200.

Harness the Power of Content Marketing

At a recent seminar, I had conversations with numerous small business owners who expressed their desire to start blogging or podcasting. They knew deep down that content marketing was crucial for growing their businesses and increasing visibility. I, too, was in the same position for several years. I recognized the importance of content marketing but found it time-consuming, often relegating it to the back burner in favor of client projects.

If only I had prioritized consistent and strategic content marketing earlier, creating long-form content that could be repurposed into engaging social media campaigns, my business would have soared to greater heights. By focusing on content marketing, I witnessed an upsurge in leads, increased social media engagement, and a boost in confidence. I proved to myself that I had the ability to produce quality content consistently, resulting in greater authority in my industry.

The Power of Investing in Yourself

Now, let’s talk about one of the most tried and true strategies: investing in yourself. Perhaps you’ve found yourself hesitating at the prospect of investing in a course, networking event, or seminar due to the price tag. I understand that feeling all too well. However, I want to encourage you by sharing my personal experience. Every investment I’ve made in networking events and education has yielded a return on investment (ROI).

Of course, it’s crucial that you show up and give your best self in addition to making the financial investment. You can’t expect miracles without putting in the effort and implementing what you’ve learned. When you thoroughly vet your courses, give it your all, and take action, you’ll witness an incredible transformation. Your connections will flourish, your knowledge will expand, and your ROI will speak for itself. Don’t be afraid to make the investment; instead, see it as an opportunity for growth that you won’t regret.
