Someone asked me lately what I mean when I say “We need to disrupt business as usual!”
Where we’re at right now, it’s more apparent than ever that “business as usual” is not working!
Too many businesses have spent years on the edge of one bad month away from shut-down. The current crisis has shown how many businesses have been resting on unstable ground. Giant corporations are not in much better positions either!
We have the unique opportunity to look at everyone’s dirty laundry and see exactly who’s been doing great, and who’s been putting on the “social media highlight reel!” And the outcomes aren’t looking great for way too many businesses!
So what needs to change?
We need small business owners to prioritize creating a solid foundation that rests on more than just sales and fulfillment!
A solid business has a good grasp on:
- Cashflow and Financial Management
- SOPs and Quality Controls
- Marketing and Branding
- People Management
My recommendation: Look at which areas you feel you need to shore up (Because, let’s be real! We all need help with various aspects at any given time!), and use this down time to get started!
