The Single Most Important Ingredient for Business Success

The first and most important thing you need to acquire in order to succeed in a small business is... knowledge.

Sounds exaggerated? Listen to this...

According to research conducted by Dun & Bradstreet, 90% of all small business failures can be traced to poor management resulting from lack of knowledge.

This is backed up by my own personal observations. In my 31 years as a business coach and consultant to small businesses, I've seen practically dozens of small business owners go under and lose their businesses -- not because they weren't talented or smart enough -- but because they were trying to re-invent the wheel rather than rely on proven, tested methods that work.

Conclusion: if you are really serious about succeeding in a business... If you want to avoid the common traps and mistakes... it is absolutely imperative that you acquire the right knowledge.

"Why Invent Mediocrity, When You Can Copy Genius?"

That's an excellent quote I picked up from a fellow business owner a few years back. What this means is that you should see what is working and try to duplicate Printing Business. Why go through all the trouble of inventing something new, that you don't even know will ever work, when you can easily learn from and duplicate something that has been a proven success?

[ Note: One of the BIGGEST mistakes almost all new businesses make is that they WASTE tons of valuable time, energy and money on trying to create something "new", that has never been tested or proven... only to find out later that it was a total loss. Don't make the same mistake! ]

Hi! My name is Meir. I'm the founder and president of BizMove.com, a successful internet based information business. I'm also the author of numerous books, mostly in the area of small business management.

I've been involved in small business for the past 31 years of my life, as a business coach, manager of a consulting firm, a seminar leader and as the owner of five successful businesses.

During my career as a business coach and consultant I've helped dozens of business owners start their businesses, market, expand, get out of troubles, sell their businesses and do practically every other small business activity you can think of.
You see, I have been there .... done it ... and bought the Small Business t-shirt! -- This free book contains techniques and strategies I've learned during my 31 year small business career.

Success Tip: Setting Goals

Good management is the key to success and good management starts with setting goals. Set goals for yourself for the accomplishment of the many tasks necessary in starting and managing your business successfully. Be specific. Write down the goals in measurable terms of performance. Break major goals down into sub-goals, showing what you expect to achieve in the next two to three months, the next six months, the next year, and the next five years. Beside each goal and sub-goal place a specific date showing when it is to be achieved.

Plan the action you must take to attain the goals. While the effort required to reach each sub-goal should be great enough to challenge you, it should not be so great or unreasonable as to discourage you. Do not plan to reach too many goals all at one time.

Establish priorities. Plan in advance how to measure results so you can know exactly how well you are doing. This is what is meant by "measurable" goals. If you can’t keep score as you go along you are likely to lose motivation. Re-work your plan of action to allow for obstacles which may stand in your way. Try to foresee obstacles and plan ways to avert or minimize them.

Check Out This Article On Leadership That Offers Many Great Tips

If you are striving to become a leader, it often seems confusing when navigating through all of the business information that is out there. Well, that confusion ends here. Here, we have compiled expert tips that equate to great leadership abilities. Continue reading so you can put them to work in your organization and improve your own abilities.

You may be a visionary with excellent insight into your company's market sector, but you don't know everything. Your subordinates may be in more intimate contact with part of the market as part of their job. If your marketing director says that your advertising isn't appropriate for your target audience, listen to her. She's probably right.

When it comes to money, take the long view, if possible. Everyone wants to show quarterly profits, but if you increase short-term earnings by cutting corners on staffing and materials that staff need to get their work done, you and your company will ultimately end up being penny wise and pound foolish.

Always remember that a great leader builds up and does not need to tear down. Do not be overly critical of those on your team. Be quick to give commendation, praise and recognition. Even when people fail, commend the effort and inspire them to get up and try again to succeed.

While you should always be there for your team as a leader, don't forget to nurture growth in yourself. Figure out where it is that you want to grow. Do what you can to stretch yourself as much as you can. Engage and deepen your passions and strengths to make your most valuable contributions.

When you're a business leader, you should try to treat your team or staff in the way that you'd like to be treated. Looking down on people isn't right and doesn't promote a good work atmosphere. If you treat you show your staff respect, they will return the favor which can make your life much easier.

Make sure your subordinates and coworkers know that you are someone who is approachable. You probably don't want to leave holes in your schedule for conversation and socialization, but it's necessary. Your employees expect and deserve your guidance, respect and appreciation. With it, they can become your greatest business asset. Without it, they become a tremendous business liability.

A great leadership tactic is to periodically meet with individuals concerning their personal work goals. Try meeting privately, going over goals they may have, as well as your goals for them as part of the team, or workforce. Then, find out if there is any way you can help them to meet these goals. Lastly, be sure to follow through.

As a leader, it is necessary to maintain an optimistic attitude in the workplace. Displaying a lack of confidence and expressing doubts about your team's chances of success is not the way to motivate your team. You can't expect to receive their best effort if they feel they are doomed to fail.

Learn good delegation skills to master or compensate for your personal weaknesses. No one is perfect, so you know you have them. Leadership isn't about being the running back that scores every touchdown. Rather, it's about being the quarterback, who always knows who is right in each play to carry the ball.

Be confident. If you are not confident about a judgment call, make sure you think it through before you enact it. The respect your team has for you relies a lot on your confidence when you talk to them, when you give orders and when you make judgment calls.

You may be a leader, or manager, but you are a human first. We all make mistakes from time to time. If you find that you have made a mistake, do not try to hide it, hoping no one will find out. You will attain a new level of respect by admitting your mistakes to your team, asking for their input and even apologizing for a mistake.

Finish what you start. Don't be the kind of business leader that is always giving motivational speeches. Whenever you have a realistic chance of closing out the execution of a stated goal, personally see that it gets done. That will tell colleagues and clients that you mean business. It also sets the bar for what you expect of those under you.

Leaders need to learn to differentiate what is in their mind and what is getting done. These are often mixed up in a leader's mind. If something is bugging you, get it off your mind. Write things down so you will not let it interfere with your current task.

Listen to people. Listening is a quality that a lot of people no longer value, but remember that there are people in your company or organization who have good ideas. Show that you are willing to hear from others, and they will feel appreciated. That is something a good leader can do.

Leaders shouldn't be by themselves. Many people will help to enhance the group. Being a leader requires you to make the tough decisions but to also serve as a guide to help the group come together as a team. Your focus as leader should be on the job of leading.

If your role includes reviewing the work of different employees, you need to focus on positive aspects and the negative ones as well. Try complimenting the good qualities they have and offer advice for improving performance. This could help motivate them.

When coordinating the efforts of more than one group, it's easy to get caught up in the us-versus-them mentality. Unfortunately, this way of thinking breeds unhealthy competition, resentment, and conflict. Focus instead on identifying a single goal or purpose that is shared by all parties. Emphasize the shared benefits of meeting these goals to improve motivation all around.

Great leaders are created through hard work and education, and finding that education can sometimes feel frustrating. Well, you now have all the education you need right in your hands. Review the tips presented in this article whenever you are struggling with your own leadership abilities, and use them to achieve your own greatness.
