Many business owners fall prey to the idea that working harder brings success. In fact, it’s having a toolbox of critical business skills and employing them to grow your business that gets the job done.
EXPERT TIP | Gary Furr, Organizational Development Consultant:
Think of business growth acceleration like driving a car with a stick shift. You have to start your car in first gear and then shift through the other gears to achieve the desired acceleration. It is the same in business: There are no shortcuts. There are certain gears you need to shift through to accelerate.
Here are the fundamental gears that have power to accelerate your business growth:
- Clear direction
- A map and plan of action
- Knowing your numbers
- Understanding your cash flow
- Knowing your banker
- Paying your taxes
These steps are groundbreaking; the trouble is that people either don’t know them or don’t employ them. Knowledge isn’t enough. Putting them into practice is what makes the difference. You may know the difference between first and third gears, but if you don’t shift, you won’t be getting anywhere.
