change is good butterfly bookmark by trudyjames
One of the best things about owning your own business is being able to change things up whenever you need to. A lot of people are scared to change their business…but as you are ever evolving as a person your business should be as well. Here are a couple of situations where changing things up can be a good thing.
Loss of Balance
Sometimes life can get out of balance. If you are taking on too much, it may be time to scale back your product offerings to the best sellers or outsource some of the admin duties to a virtual assistant. Stop and think about how much time you are able to devote to your business. Change things up!
So you have been in business for a few months with no sales? If people are looking but not purchasing, it may be time to re-evaluate your products. Are there a lot of offerings out there that are similar to yours? Take a moment to stop and think how you want to be different. Change things up!
Do you have a logo that was designed by a friend’s brother’s cousin and it wasn’t really want you wanted in the first place but hey, it was free? Is your current business name 10 years old and doesn’t reflect what you offer anymore? Is your packaging out of date and not as professional as you know it could be? Take a look at how you want your business to be presented. Change things up!
During the course of your business, you may need to seek another path…take a minute to decide if it is beneficial to you and your business. If so, don’t be scared to change things up!
Lisa, are you in my head? This is so scary that I think you’re talking directly to me! Yes, yes, yes on so many accounts!!! And I’m working on doing something about it too. xoxo
Hahaha Bridgett! I am actually taking my own advice and changing some things up as well in my business. 🙂
Change is SOOOOO good! Wow, this speaks to me too Bridgett! I am, right now at this very moment, changing the direction of my business and I have it in my head (and written down on paper) but still stuck on how to make it transition to existence. I’m ALMOST there so thank you Lisa for this post which simply validates why I need to go forward without resistance!
Wonderful post, like Bridgett some of the things you wrote spoke directly to me as well.
This is such good advice that will help your business grow tremendously in the long run!
Change IS a good thing! I found myself in this position late last year. I knew this year needed to be different. I hardly ever make New Years Resolutions, but this year I sat down and made a list of the things I wanted to change and focus on. Happily, I’m still right on track. It’s funny that whenever I come up with a new idea, I can look back at that list and more often than not, it’s already on there.
I’m finding that adding/changing products or processes takes time and a lot of patience. The things that I think are genius are taking other people a little longer to see them in this light. 🙂 I can wait though, I know it will be worth it in the long run!
Great post – I can especially relate to the “loss of balance” part. I have limited time for my business and although I am an organized person it is still a struggle, as I tend to take on too much!
I can definately take this advice to heart. (especially now that I am in the middle of re-inventing my business). Thanks for the great words of wisdom!
It’s great to change things up – you never know what you are capable of until you know WHY you want to do what you do. When you know WHY you can really solve any obstacles that you are facing and prevent identity crisis!
