Are you looking for quality or quantity?

In the current economic climate, many businesses have seen a decline in the number of customers in the last couple of years yet a focus on quality rather than quantity may be a blessing for businesses.

 I hear so many people at networking events tell us they can do everything for everyone. Yet business owners will benefit from identifying their ideal customer then focusing on attracting that ideal to their business.

Are you really ready and willing?

Today I want to share a few thoughts with you that are to do with business although not necessarily the normal networking tips that I share.

I am undergoing a lot of strategic planning around my own business identity and direction and you will see a lot of the results of this over the coming months. As part of this I have decided to undertake the Economic Gardening Programme and it has started this week. Economic Gardening is a local council run business coaching and training programme – and it is going to give me an excellent space and support to look at my own business when I spend so much time looking at other people’s businesses.

As we started the programme, one of the lead trainers let us know that the people who get the best results are those people that are both Hungry and Humble enough to learn and then to implement.

Business Success – Lessons Everywhere

There really are business lessons everywhere when you start to look for them. I recently wrote in a magazine about succeeding in business being like an Olympic athlete’s journey.

And then there’s the Voice.

I am not a big TV watcher but have become slightly addicted to The Voice. I do like to see people following and achieving their dreams and that is part of the appeal for me. I have done some singing in the past and let that go to focus on other things so it is a show that resonates with me.
