Human Choices…

Get Your Business

Many years ago I worked with a young professional who insisted on being kind daily. This was intentional and involved even the simplest of tasks. Observing her decisions, it was clear when there was a struggle between what she wanted to do and the right thing to do – most times she leaned on what felt comfortable with her beliefs without compromising the best interests of the company. When I think about kindness and business, her actions that backed her words come to mind. She was also instrumental in my zeal for international business, and included me in her import and wholesale business adventures as our friendship grew.

In business there are situations where a choice has to be made. Do you accept actions that are unfair and wrong which cause unintentional harm to others or do you speak up. Sometimes the challenges affect your income, but what is unfair and unkind can hurt more than financial gain. Indeed, we have a responsibility to care for ourselves, family and business – but at what cost?

As an entrepreneur the challenges can be on both sides of the fence. Therefore, its good to choose a middle ground which will not hurt you and the business or another. If you have to make a decision in the best interests of the business, be fair and kind even if it causes discomfort to self. The person holding the position of power – business owner/ leader has the advantage and therefore where kindness and humanness lies can be exercised – it is a personal and professional choice. The cost of kindness may be humility, fair-play, and removing ego, but this lesson can sometimes cause pain and suffering to an employee unwarranted. As the entrepreneur, choose humanity.

Have a kind day.

Strategic Action

Get Your Business

Strategy is the action plan for execution. The action involves choices that will position the business where it needs to be. Its tactical in what is done to achieve goals. Strategy determines where you want to go and tactics – how you get there.

There are many things moving at the same time in business. Operations are not static, but ever changing, adapting to customer/ market expectations while focused on company goals. Finance, sales, marketing, logistics and distribution, warehousing, human resources, are integrated, overlapping functions that work together to deliver a promise. The end result is what matters – daily.

The business is in business to make money – profitably.

Some years ago went to help ‘fix’ a company and the executive on site shared they were making money daily and could not understand why there was a problem. From observations and investigation they were seeing daily cash transactions, but mismanaging resources, thus unprofitable. The problem was the person leading, not the business model or staff. In a few months with some minor changes including changing the leader, the business saw a profit – strategic action!

Entrepreneurs must keep focused on what’s in front , in line of sight, while moving in any direction. If one door closes, either find another door to open on make your own doorway – just keep moving. Strategy is only as effective as implemented. There will be challenges, uncertainty and chaos in the way, but learning to navigate through discomfort makes for a more ‘durable character.’ Choosing to be in business is a great move, and staying in business depends on your actions and choices.

You got this.

Have a fantastic day!

Contingency…Plan B

Get Your Business

In the ‘unlikely event’… fill in the blanks. It’s great to be positive when stepping into your dream world and dream business. However, what if everything does not line up; what if rain falls every day for a predictable ‘dry season month; what if all workers catch a virus simultaneously; what if the contractor does not get that ‘sure funding or deposit’ for the job you started? Do you have a contingency plan?

A contingency plan is not a ‘doom and gloom negative vibe’ on a great opportunity. Its a course of action prepared in advance for a quick response when needed. It’s the proverbial ‘plan B’, and can have multiple options based on circumstances.

Contingency planning is a part of risk management and in business is a necessary part of your sustainable business operations. Your strategic response to risks in your business can cover all areas from faulty product shipment to low employee turnout during peak periods or anything which causes major disruption to business stability. The adaptation and pivot for businesses during the ‘unlikely event’ such as ‘SARS H1N1 or Covid 19’ pandemics was at the extreme end of the risk spectrum, but for some, maybe not as impossible to happen.

As an entrepreneur the way you look at your business viability and sustainability is based on your long term goals, and therefore understanding the possible risks associated with market and industry is prudent. How do you plan to keep going or stay afloat during the challenges that will come? Avoiding the unpredictable or unexpected does not mean ‘the possibility’ will not happen, and ‘crossing that bridge when/if you meet it’ can mean closing your business or bankruptcy. Do you have a contingency plan on standby for your business risks?

Have a fantastic day!
