At some point in your journey, you’re going to feel stuck. Situations will arise that leave you feeling confined. You might even think you’ve already failed. When this happens, remember that there is no one best solution. And if you want to solve a problem, you have to find it first.
There are two very specific questions every organization must ask. Who are our customers and what is our core competency?
Engaged employees need more than a paycheck to feel part of the team. They want to know where they are going and why. When you can give them a purpose, it helps them envision a future with your company.
Creating a business without a vision is like going on a long road trip without a GPS. You can try, but you won’t get very far in the right direction. As an entrepreneur, it’s essential that before you start your business you know the overall goal you’re going to accomplish and how you’re going to get there. Your business won’t make millions overnight, but if you set up the proper infrastructure and put in the sufficient planning, you can guide your organization in the right direction and set your organization up for future success.
What motivated you to start your business or work for the company you do? Truly successful entrepreneurs aren’t in it just for the money. Instead, they are passionate about making a difference with the organization in various ways, such as engaging employees in community service activities or providing transitioning veterans with their first civilian job.
