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!

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!

10 Ways to Thank Your Customer

People buy from us because they know us, they like us, and they trust us.

Think of it from your customers’ point of view – would you buy from a business that you have been to before and got reliable service? Or would you buy from a business you don’t know? Would you buy from a business you know but don’t like, or would you buy from a business that you do like? And finally, even if you know them, and kind of like them, would you buy from a business that you did not trust would provide you with the best that they could?

This is the immutable truth of marketing – people buy from people they know, like and trust.

So, in marketing, we do everything we can to show people that they can trust us – our advertising is open and transparent, we shape our corporate culture so that our word is our bond, we explain terms and conditions, we deliver what we promise. We also do as much as we can to get people to know us – we provide clear websites and send out brochures, we advertise in the circles our markets meet, we have recognisable logos.

But how do we get people to like us? Read More
