Tools To Improve Your Business Management Skills
Get The Fundamentals Right - Business Success Will Follow.
To succeed in business requires an understanding of the fundamentals of business, and your market sector
and using both to your advantage.
Believe in Your Product or Service,
you need to believe in your product or service. If you don't
believe in it, you will have a great deal of difficulty selling your
product or service to other people. You also need to have confidence
in your ability to provide and promote your product or service. An
old saying sums this up best by stating: "All things are possible to
he who believes"
Aptitude for the Business,
you need to have an aptitude for the business, the motivation and the ability to
acquire at the very least basic skills and experience before you start your business.
If you are employed as a bookkeeper and you enjoy the job, then
setting up your own bookkeeping service would be a sensible choice
with a greater chance of success
you need to be responsible to your customers, this is
achieved by only making commitments you can keep and by not engaging
in misleading or dishonest practices or behavior. If you want to build
long-term success in your business, then you need to develop
long-term satisfied customers. When their needs are being satisfied,
customers are at their happiest.
Aim for High Quality ... to keep on track,
the next principle is that you need to have a high quality product or
service. This will be your best advertisement, inferior quality
products usually generate poor customer satisfaction, a dissatisfied
customer can be very dangerous for your business. Usually they tell
on average about fourteen other people who will then be dis-inclined
to buy your product or service based on the experience of that one
Make a Profit,
it is not enough to have a top quality product or service,
you also need to have a product or service that will generate enough
income to cover all your business expenses and give you a
Healthy Business Processes Means Healthy Profit(s)...
Get it right,
you will need to have sufficient Start-up capital, you need to have
access to enough cash to set up and run your
business, and enough income to meet your private expenses during the
A major problem with many home and small businesses
is that they fail to have enough money available to ensure their
success. There is nothing more discouraging than having a great
idea, getting it started on a shoestring, and not being able to expand
due to cash shortages and seeing a competitor come along and steal
another fundamental principle for small business success is that you
start small. This will enable you to minimize your overheads until
you are confident of your success in the marketplace. For many of
us, this would mean starting part-time while retaining your
full-time income source. When you can, expand your business into a
full-time venture. This is a great way of minimizing the risk of
Be Well Organized,
successful businesses are well organized, they have a system for
keeping track of expenditure and earnings, this level of
organization in your business will help to ensure that you are
providing your customers or clients with a top quality product or
service. It will also ensure that you have enough information
available to maximize your profitability and to satisfy your legal
requirements for record keeping.

Time Management Processes
We all have "too much to do". True? Sure 'nuf. And that says a lot of good things about you.
That you have "too much to do" suggests that a lot of people have entrusted much confidence in you.
I mean, people who are drifting about early each afternoon begging co-workers for something to do, may not have earned that confidence from others.
And this applies not only in our work lives but in our personal lives as well.
But this creates a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it's great to enjoy the confidence of others.
Yet, having "too much to do" often creates the stresses and distresses that may reduce your overall productivity.
I divide our responsibilities into two categories: "Crucial" and "Not Crucial".
Crucial items give us the "biggest bang for the buck" for the time spent and is the most productive use of our time.
It is the logical use of our time.
"Not Crucial" gives us emotional relief. It's doing the little things, the junk mail, desk dusting and the like, that, while necessary, do not really advance our daily success very much.
When we accomplish the "Crucial" things in our life we are doing "business" v "busyness".
We are making progress versus wheel spinning. Have you ever had a day when you were busy
the whole daylong but when you got home that night you knew you had not accomplished a darn thing?
(We can fool the world sometimes but we cannot fool ourselves.)
Doing the Crucial things builds up our self-esteem and our motivation level.
Ever notice when you've had a really productive "Crucial" day how that positive momentum carried forward into your evening hours?
You are more inclined to do the woodworking, spend time with the kids, or work on hobbies, when you've had a great day.
But when you've had one of those "Not Crucial" days, the motivation and momentum levels are reduced and when we come home that night, many of us just want to block out the day with that all important
exercise, "click, click, click", the sound of the TV remote device, surfing us through a multitude of channels that fail to grab our interest.
I really believe that most people, intuitively and instinctively, want to be good time managers.
It makes sense. The better we manage our time, the more results we will enjoy. It's the logical choice.
So let's say it's the start of your workweek and you have a lot of "things to do", some of which are "Crucial", some "Not Crucial".
Intuitively and instinctively you and I want to be good time managers.
Therefore, where does our attention gravitate towards? Do we focus on the "Crucial" or "Not Crucial" tasks? The "Crucial"? Sure! Logic tells us that.
The more "Crucial" things we do, the more productivity and success we enjoy.
But, you know what? When given a choice between "Crucial" and "Not Crucial" items, we will almost always do the "Not Crucial" items and ignore the "Crucial" items in spite of the fact that we all want to be productive in our day.
Because we are driven more by emotion rather than logic.
You see the "Crucial" items are typically longer and harder to accomplish.
The "Not Crucial" items are typically more quick and fun and emotionally satisfying.
We need to get over to the "Crucial" side more often to increase our personal productivity.
What about the other blocks to our personal productivity?
