The present size and position of your start-up don’t really matter. Your start-up can actually experience an incredible level of growth within a short period of time. But, for this to happen, there are one or two things to take note of while working towards moving your start-up to the next level.
Believe it or not, you can’t go about the entire process of growth on your own – with a limited level of knowledge and experience. And if you attempt to, you are likely to incur a loss, failure and missed opportunities. But, is there a trusted way out? Yes, there is.
Many experts and successful business owners once started small. But, did they – and their businesses – remain small? Hell No. Luckily, you don’t have to go through the struggles, hurdles and the battles they encountered and overcame before their businesses could grow to its peak.
The truth is that every business owner should belong to a mastermind group, or at least have a business mentor. But Mentorship can also mean a lot of things including listening to some people who have gone ahead of you. Wisdom lives in nuggets… usually.
These successful people have done all the hard work already. And from their experiences, they have some invaluable words of motivation for you – to make your business journey less bumpy. Are you willing to learn from these people? If yes, here are 7 amazing quotes that will inspire your start-up growth, and brief tips to help you get the best out of them.
“Speed is useful only if you are running in the right direction” – Joel Barker
Being in a hurry to push your start-up up the hill might not turn out well. But, taking out time to learn, strategize and execute your plans, will definitely lead to an explosion – toward success and growth.
Take your time, learn, grow, submit to mentorship, read and take calculated leaps. It is always better to outlast struggles than grow quickly and die at the first major hurdle.
“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself” – Andy Warhol
Seeing the future of your start-up as colorful isn’t good enough. Working towards making it colorful is definitely a better option.
You cannot afford to depend on market forces or economic rules. You are the boss of your business, without deliberate and calculated risks, forfeitures and plans your business will fizzle out no matter what the news says.
If you see an Opportunity, study it, them if it checks out, jump on it immediately.
“We find comfort among those that agree with us – growth among those who don’t” – Frank Howard Clark
Determination is what we need to forge ahead, but the very word “to forge” depicts resistance. Until you learn to reason with the resistance and tactically accept what ultimately makes sense, you probably will live within the limits of your knowledge. Often the limits are not as wide as you think.
Do you really need a dozen of brains in order to push your start-up to the next level? No! You can actually cause a change in your business single-handedly – Just be determined.
“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning” – Benjamin Franklin
Success and growth might be cousins, but they are not quite the same thing. Expanding and growing your business should be the true proof of success not having a decent turnover.
The level of growth of your start-up determines the level of your success. Do you want to be successful? Then focus on growing your business.
“Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together” – James Cash Penny
Business Networking is the first resort for visionary business owners… An island mentality is the bane of the unsuccessful business owner.
Getting ideas from people around you – with a common vision – can greatly help in accelerating the growth of your start-up.
“Chaos in the world brings uneasiness, but it also allows the opportunity for creativity and growth” – Tom Barrett
Don’t be frightened when faced with challenges in your start-up. Instead, take a time to map out a master plan that converts these challenges into opportunities, and opportunities into growth.
Every problem is an opportunity in disguise… if you can only see properly. Your business fails only when you say it has.
“Risk is essential. There is not growth of inspiration in staying within what is safe and comfortable. Once you find out what you do best, why not try something else?” – Alex Noble
Risks are a part of our existence. Your start-up might remain in its budding stage for a long time if you don’t take a step with an uncertain outcome. We call such actions risks.
The growth of your start-up greatly depends on you. Therefore, try to remain focused, get in touch with people of same vision, take that giant step towards success, and watch your start-up grow rapidly.
