Business Flows – Keeping your business in a positive flow

Business Flows

Business Flows

By Lee Anne B

Every business, no matter what industry, has busy and slow times. No one in business has the same month over and over and over. Because as we know nothing stays the same.. we are either evolving or dissolving.. and the same applies to your business!

So how do you ensure that your business is evolving and not dissolving? There are a few thoughts that come up for me here:

  1. Testing & Measuring
    Just like your business, Advertising/Marketing changes. So an advert you had that was producing huge results may at some stage stop giving you the results you are after. So continually testing and measuring this you can then tweak the advert, or stop it and find a new place to market, keeping in mind you can always go back to it a few months later and you might find that you get the great results again. The key points with testing and measuring is change the things that aren’t working and keep the things that are.
  2. Ongoing Education to your Customers
    You want to be providing your customers with an ongoing education service, not just selling them products/services. The more you educate your customers, the more you will find they will come to you wanting to buy more of what you have. The reason for this is they realise that you are there to assist them, that you want them  to have the best option for them and that you aren’t there just to SELL them something and make money. While doing this you are also building yourself up to be the expert in your field, which means  once again when you recommend something to your customer they are going to take it as the best option because you are the expert. The best way to do this is either start Blogging, Writing regular articles, emails etc even becoming a guest writer for another expert!
  3. Personal & Professional Development
    It comes back to the saying, you need to work more ON yourself/your business than you do working IN your business. The reason for this is, it comes down to Law of Attraction. If you are running your business from a place of enjoyment, happiness, excitement and passion you will attract more of the things that will give you more of those feelings. If you are working your bum off, hating what you are doing and hate having to get up and go to the office, guess what you are going to attract? More of the things you hate to do, more of the clients you don’t like to deal with and  more of the lack of everything. So really start working on being grateful, work on finding an element of your business that you can re-spark the passion for. Use Polaris Global’s Beyond Freedom Evolution and our Live events and mentors to assist you.

    Thanks for the tips. I really liked in part 2 – Ongoing Education to your Customers, you suggested the best way to know and understand your customers was to start blogging, writing regular articles, emails etc., even becoming a guest writer for another expert!

    Well before I joined Polaris Global, and this opportunity came up to start blogging, I have never ever blogged before!! As you can probably see, I still have a lot to learn, but I also know through my basketball coaching experience, that if you start teaching you learn so much quicker. So that’s why I am giving it a full-on go as I don’t do things by half and this community has so many nice, friendly people to help me in my endeavours.

    Ok so number 3 is a no brainer for me. I rate myself high in this one.
    Number 2 is now apparent through my blogging. I get it! Thank you for your clarity Lee Anne. Rating medium but climbing daily. Result!
    Number 1 is like a foreign concept to me! Rating low but not zero, and taking this on as new fave for tomorrow.
    You are making one helluva difference Lee Anne!

  3. Debbie R says:

    Great points Lee Anne! Being of value stands out as the most important. The more value you bring,the more you get back in results. Working on yourself with BFE helps you bring more value and being the positive influence that others can follow.

  4. Alison W says:

    Thanks Lee Anne for the reminder. Going to work on number 2 I think.

  5. Penelope D says:

    I resonate with your opening paragraph. Thanks for sharing your thoughts … great reminders to instill “staying power”.

  6. Lee Anne B says:

    Thanks everyone, glad you could relate to the points and I too can work more on part 2.. so loving the blogging 🙂

  7. Gary W says:

    Great reminder, as you know everything in life ebbs and flows and it would be unreasonable to think your business will remain exactly the same. I love your quote ‘ensure your business is evolving.’

  8. Louise L says:

    Thanks, Lee Anne. This was very helpful. I love the ebb and flow part. Makes so much sense. and I love personal development but somehow I forget how important it is to use in order to succeed in my business! When I am positive and grateful and happy, everything goes so much better!

  9. Lee Anne B says:

    Thanks Gary, absolutely 🙂 It sure does Louise, mindset plays a big part in your success. So be sure to always be using your Beyond Freedom Evolution and be getting on all the Polaris Global Training calls. x

  10. Kim G says:

    A great reminder that our development goes hand in hand with our business development. I often look at them separately, not a smart move 🙂

  11. Lee Anne B says:

    Absolutely Kim, The more you work on yourself and embrace your Beyond Freedom Evolution and the Polaris training calls, the more you will grow personally, but the more your business will grow also, aslong as you are backing it up with the work needed in your business xx

  12. Debbie R says:

    Great distinction Kim….everything we think and take action on affects every single area of our lives. When we improve our thinking in one area, and apply what we know, it overflows and benefits us in all the other areas of our lives as well….

  13. Laith A says:

    So True Lee Anne, especially the comment about working on yourself and what we put into the day we attract back. Huge lesson for me there. Thanks
