When you begin the business, you must be committed to the “hustle”. There is a lot you have to do that you wouldn’t normally want to do
Use Speaking To Build Your Business
Regardless of what type of business you’re in, you should utilize speaking, online and offline to build leads and increase sales. This doesn’t mean you need to be on a big stage with a large audience. It means you take advantage of opportunities to talk about your business and how you can help people with your service or product.
There are 5 “stages” you can take advantage of to grow your business. To download those, go to AdvanceYourReach.com/Casey
Don’t Wait To Hire Your First Person
You must think through the activities you’re spending your time doing that someone else can do it, to free you up to do what only you can do in the company. That will allow you to live in your sweet spot which will increase the value of your business.
Go Sell Something
You shouldn’t worry about any systems in your business before reaching $1M in sales, EXCEPT sales. You must go out and sell your product and/or service in order to succeed.
Nobody Cares About Your Business
When you’re talking to leads and potential clients, remember that they don’t care about you or your business. They care most about them and their business and agenda. That’s just life and you need to meet them where they are to successfully reach them.
How To Handle Finances
Don’t wait too long to hire a bookkeeper. You don’t need to have this responsibility on your plate and it’s not an expensive position to hire. As the leader you need to stay in tune with your business cash flow and your ROI (return on investment) for marketing expenses.
