Small Business Owners Need To Get Past Their Comfort Zones

As a small business owner, at least one of your personal goals is to be able to afford a comfortable lifestyle that you can enjoy.

As human beings, we tend to move toward comfort. Sure, sometimes, we like a challenge. But ultimately even as we deal with challenges, we look to the comforts that successfully dealing with the challenge will bring.

However, in order for your business to succeed, you have to push past your comfort zone and push up against some uncomfortable challenges. No truly successful business was ever born out of taking the easy way unless your measure of success is “just getting by.”

So, what do we need to understand about comfort zones in order to meet these challenges head-on?

In this video, I take you through the three zones that you have to move past in order to push your business to success.



The beauty of this model is that it is not only about business success.

In life, most of us are happy sitting on the couch at home and watching your favourite program on the television. But if you want your life to be meaningful, you need to get up off the couch and do something that is within your range of possibility – like play a sport or enjoy an experience with friends. If you want your life to be fulfilling and really successful, you need to push past fear into the zone of challenges like try a new skill, change your job, start a business, meet new people!

If you haven’t seen the video, go to teikoh.com and find it there.

Just to remind you – here’s the immutable truth about marketing: “People buy from people they know, like and trust.”

This is why all marketing is about getting people to know about you, getting people to like what you are and stand for, and getting people to trust you and what you deliver. Read More

How To Use Technology In Your Small Business

If you think we have seen enough business disruption from technology already, wait for it.

There’s more to come.

What has been called “The Fourth Industrial Revolution” is still being played out, and there is little doubt that it is going to lead to a step-change in business, productivity, and customer experience. What is yet to come will not be a smooth upward slope but a significant step up in the use of technology ion business. Some of the technologies that are being introduced or developed are more integrated smartphone apps, Artifical Intelligence, augmented reality, sensor technologies, 3D printing, blockchain cryptocurrencies, GPS and robotics. These and their combinations as they develop will cause us to need to adapt our business processes or suffer the consequences of tougher competition.

Are You Too Busy To Read This?

If you have signed up and got this sent to your email, but you are too busy to read this, you are in trouble!

My blog gives you short tips, advice and ideas that you can implement in your business straight away. They give you ideas and processes to work on your business, not in it.

So, if you are too busy to read these ideas, tips, tools and free processes, it means that you are so busy working in your business, you have no time to improve and to get your life back.

I have spent over 30 years learning from great teachers and from the knocks of real life about what works and what doesn’t. Watch this video to see why you really need to take the time to learn and grow.



Here’s my challenge to you if you really want to grow your business and build a lifestyle:

  1. Set aside 10 minutes – that’s all! 10 Minutes!
  2. Go to teikoh.com and choose a blog post about something you want to work on in your business, and watch the video
  3. Take a piece of paper and write down where in your business that advice could help – and importantly what that would mean to you once it got fixed or improved
  4. Take another piece of paper and write down the steps you will take to implement that piece of advice tomorrow

Then come back to the blog and in the comments section, tell me how you went. Or, go to the Teik Oh Dot Com Facebook page and leave me a comment there.

In the words of the shoes – Just Do It!
