When you're running a business, some days you're on and some days you're off. You may be feeling on top of your game, but sometimes inspiration for your business simply runs out of steam. At Keeping Your Business, we just love keeping our clients motivated and on top of their business, so that's why we handle their accounting, bookkeeping, payroll, and tax services needs. Although Mashable gathered some valuable career tips, we think they're helpful for business owners as well to get over their hump.
1. "The only thing standing between you and success is yourself." - Georges Chebli
Even when you have bad days, just continue to move forward. Stand up for what you're worth and reach for those opportunities you want. Don't sell yourself short.
2. "Never assume defeat." - Rachael Summers
Just because something didn't go well the first time, doesn't mean it's completely over. Sometimes you have tough conversations with clients or a purchase order didn't go over well. Those little hiccups are learning opportunities and may open up to different pathways.
3. "Pick your battles." - Philip Johannessen
Sometimes people have bad days and some people revel in drama. Save your energy for more important things. If you find yourself getting worked up, take a walk or get a breather to decompress.
Every business grows at a different pace. Don't get hung up on other people's success, especially if they've been in the business for a longer time than you have.
5. "Persistence beats resistance." - Raoul van der Berg
When you're feeling stuck, take a step forward.
6. "Diversify your skill set." - Stephanie Gentry
You may be great in one thing and that's worked for your business, but consider expanding your skills to adapt with changing times. Don't get stuck in old habits.
7. "Find out what you like doing best, and get someone to pay you for it." - Alex Los
When you're working with passion, your clients will see it.
