“A new direction. Don’t be a no-thing company.”

Most of us have an aggressive interest in growth for our business but it’s not so easy.  Like you, we’re experiencing the dynamic nature of change in everything we do.  What was isn’t any longer, what used to work, doesn’t any more, what we did before, we can’t do any longer.  I get it. 

You work hard to maintain your business with one eye focused on the core income producing activity with another eye on the opportunity;  the way to grow, the things to do differently. If you’re like me, you get really fired up about all that exists out there.  So many ways to help your clients, so many ways to grow the business, so many exciting things to do that are unique and different and look like great opportunities.  We’ll always hear this is going to be a year of change.  You can’t sit still in any way.  You’ll get crushed, run over by the doers.  It’s time to take control, act on an idea. 

Yeah, scary.  Believe me, I know.  It’s something every good business owner/operator is faced with.  But it has to happen.  Some-thing has to happen or the opposite takes place.  No-thing happens…to you… and every-thing happens around you.  That’s not gonna cut it.  That’s not good enough.  That WILL NOT WORK.  Nothing is literally no-thing.  No-thing!  Do your clients and potential clients want to be associated with a business that does nothing, that has no-thing and services nothing?   While I don’t have the ultimate solution to what it is any of us needs to do to capture the opportunities, I know I want to be a part of the solution to finding those things. 

I for one have committed to doing something, a lot of things, providing some-things, creating some-things, helping others be some-thing that benefits my business.  That’s what a new look provides as a thought process.  A position of purpose.  Empowering opportunity.  Authority to do what you choose to do.  Do some-thing to help your business.  I’ll leave you with a thought that was presented to me with all the enthusiasm, energy and excitement of doing, changing, growing.  Simply answer this with one-thing and you’re off to a great start.  Just one thing to change your business.  Doing that one thing for your company.  That’s some-thing… big.
