5 More Key Ideas For Scaling Your Business
It’s fundamental to have a clear plan when scaling your business. Unmanaged growth can cause critical problems that are painful and costly to fix. So defining a clear strategy, then sticking to it (and adjusting as necessary) is key. But how to do so? Our previous blog posts will certainly set you on the right path and give you more than enough tools to set you up for success.
But there’s another element that, as an entrepreneur, you cannot skip: mindset. These five key ideas for scaling your business below are crucial parts of an entrepreneurial mindset. More than any tools or practices, maintaining these five mindsets below and putting them to regular use will set you up for success.
1. ABL: Always be learning
Great marketers and great marketing teams never stop learning. They’re always learning about the latest best practices, technological developments, and market and industry developments. They embrace curiosity as part of their work and driving force. Of course, there’s a quantitative side to marketing, but the magic that makes great marketing great comes from the qualitative side, the creativity that must be fed by a curious team.
2. Be determined, work hard
To succeed you need to have the ability to go through walls to get to your dreams. Being more determined than 95% of everyone else is not a nice-to-have, but required to succeed at scaling. The journey is much harder than a laptop on a beach on Instagram. It requires long hours, tough decisions, risk, and instability. But fear not, stick with it and you’ll be rewarded!
3. Check your ego at the door
Don’t conflate determination with ego or cockiness. There are plenty of people out there who know more than you or are more skilled than you. Learn to ask for help and turn your network and open-mindedness into an asset. Look at things this way: There are no failures, just learning opportunities.
4. Be open
Adopt a collaborative mindset. Like above, it actually helps to be open and vulnerable. True confidence is not being afraid to be open and to share your knowledge and experience with others. Ask for advice and be willing to give advice. Do this as part of your constant practice of striving to be better.
5. Culture is everything
Don’t just embody the above qualities yourself but within your team, too. Encourage your team members to always be curious, to be hardworking, to be collaborative, and to be helpful. Building a team with these qualities will set you and your business up for success more than anything else.
