As a business owner, your main goal is to grow your business!
Sometimes, you imagine yourself relaxing on the beach having other people run your business for you and the only job you are doing is to collect money. Once you feel that way, you need to reconsider the idea of running a business.
One of the major goals of a business is to make profit of course, but you should earn it. In order for your business to stay up, you have to feel it, smell it and let your soul push the wheel. Inspire your employees and let everyone of them feel the passion that you have. Otherwise, you may risk ruining the whole thing. Why?!
Most People work for money, some of them love what they do, but no one cares about your vision the way you care about it. That’s why if you hire people just to work as robots for a monthly salary, you will end up having angry customers, lost sales and messed up departments because they get bored, get used to the salary you gave them and take it for granted.
So, what can you do to avoid?
Here you are some Ideas:
1.Speak From The Bottom Of Your Heart:
Always speak with passion and show how excited you are about the ideas or goals of the business.
2.Share Your Vision
You should care about how your employees see your vision. Ask them about their inputs, and make them feel as your success partners. Then celebrate the success with them and share the credit on different channels.
3.Give Recognition And Praise
While celebrating your business success and achievements you should mention and praise everyone who gave efforts and showed passion while pushing the business wheel. This will give your employees the feel that they are running their own business by working for you.
4.Encourage Opinions And Ideas
Don’t underestimate your employees’ opinions and ideas, set regular meetings to gather thoughts and listen carefully to their brainstorming results. You will get surprised how loyal they became to your business.
5.Make Your Employees Proud
Create a style for your business. This can be a cool slogan, unique decoration or a flexible environment with all means of fun “Take Google environment as an example”. Your employees will feels home and enjoying what they do.
Consider those ideas and do your own research to be able to keep your business up. If someone promises you a long lazy life on the beach after 2 years of running your own business, just do what he says. He is right!
