Sometimes things don't work for your business and that is ok. Check out how it went when I gave Google AdWords a go.
Every entrepreneur has their go to tools that they use in order to keep business flowing and their sanity intact.
Of course I could go through a list of design programs (Adobe Creative Cloud) or stock photography sites, font must-haves and more, BUT I am talking about tools to help me run my business efficiently. You know, tools that EVERYBODY can use to help in the daily grind. My tools are fabulous and free (well, most of them).
As business owners and creatives we MUST take the time to reflect and rest. Let your brain have then chance to brainstorm without being forced (y’all, it’s called day dreaming and it does miraculous things for your creative ideas). Giving yourself the breathing room necessary to plan strategically will benefit your business, not hurt it! As Reina Pomeroy has said before, “Without clear vision and focus, no matter what you do, it really doesn’t help you to progress.” AMEN to that! How do you expect to have clear vision without the downtime to THINK through life? How about focus? Can you really focus on one aspect of your business when you have a million things racing through your brain?
Taking the time to make people feel important and showing them how valuable they are to your business is a daily piece of your business puzzle. Make sure it is a part of your business core values, your daily routine. We have to love on people every way we can in order to create relationships that will cultivate repeat business and lasting friendships.
