Was this year one of your best ever? We had a great year here at Central Comm. With plenty of challenges and new requests. Sorting out which ones work for us and our customers was also an interesting project.
For the past couple of months at Central Comm we have been discussing what we will do in 2019. Will our plans stay the same? Will we kick it up a notch or two? What are our customers asking for? If they are requesting services we don’t normally provide, should we find a way to offer those services?
All of these are interesting questions and as of right now, we don’t have etched in stone answers to any of these questions. But,the time is getting close. Pretty soon we will need to be on a path to growing our business, or…. well I don’t want to think about the alternative. Failure is not an option.
It’s always a good idea to see what other people think would be a good way to keep our business, or yours, moving forward. Here are some idead from Forbes Magazine that we liked:
“Learn With A Team
Most leaders settle for learning by themselves. They read a book or attend a conference by themselves. Good leaders learn with the help of a mentor. A coach can come alongside a leader and help the leader see things from a different perspective. The best leaders learn with a team. An old proverb teaches that where there are many advisors, there is much success. – Ken Gosnell, CXP – CEO Experience
- Focus On What Makes You Thrive
Be unapologetic and relentless with what makes you thrive. Many times, we are influenced from the outside world, and cloud our own desires for the sake of those around us. The sooner you are able to grasp this nugget, the sooner it will drastically change your world. – Neeta Bhushan, Global GRIT institute
- Play The Long Game
It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day challenges of running a business, but you MUST carve out time at least once a week to take stock of what you’re doing for the long-term health of your business. That includes marketing, training, employee development, community engagement and capital development. Sound investments today will pay dividends in the future. – Jim Judy, Try Franchising “
