    5 Key Growth Strategies For Every Business - No Matter What Type Of Business

    No matter what type of business you’re in, your ultimate goal is to succeed and make a profit. You started your own business maybe because you wanted to be your own boss or because you were passionate about your idea.

    It could also be that you just wanted freedom from a monotonous routine. But sadly, success is not determined by the reason behind starting your own company. No business comes with a fixed instruction manual. However, there are proven strategies for every type of business that can guarantee you reasonably good footing in the market.  

  • 7 Motivation and Mindset Strategies for Business Growth in Any Industry

    Important achievements require a clear focus, all-out effort, and a bottomless trunk full of strategies. Plus allies in learning - Carol Dweck

    Success and growth cannot be achieved by sitting idle and assuming that business can now run on its own. It is not your DNA which will decide how far you will go and neither will the success of your predecessors determine your own success. “Motivation” and “Mindset” are the two key elements of achieving business growth in any industry. Goals give direction while motivation and mindset help achieve them. Every day going to work, with a fixed mindset, may help you achieve your goals but it will not inspire anyone to do better. To achieve the wow! factor, you need to have a growth mindset which provides the right motivation to improve and persevere at all costs.

  • Are You Focusing on the Wrong Numbers in Your Business?

    In business, numbers are important. But all numbers are not equally important. Quantitative data has a way of becoming confusing, chaotic and irrelevant if the right parameters are not set. This does not mean you need to stop looking at them. What you need is caution. Be cautious that the numbers you are concentrating upon really matter. One of the basic truths about why most businesses fail in the first year itself is that they are not looking at the right set of numbers, the numbers that really make a difference.

  • Common Mistakes in Running a Small Business

    If you've been in business for a while, you'd know that there are definitely some mistakes that you've made. Today, we've been asked what are the common mistakes that we see around the traps in small businesses? It's a great question because we see a lot. Are you using paper? Have you answered the phone in your business recently? Can you monitor what all of your staff are doing and can they reference a document that shows them what they're meant to be doing? If the answer is no, then you're making a mistake.

  • Will Outsourced IT Support Make or Break Your Startup Success?

    Imagine just starting a new business here in Australia and your computers were suddenly attacked by aggressive ransomware. Could anyone from your team resolve this issue and prevent it from escalating and affecting all of your other valuable data?

As a startup, you would want to begin your operations smoothly but with the least money spent as possible.

  • How Can Apples and Oranges be the Same Price

    You can't compare apples with oranges and that's what it comes down to. We've been told this time and time again, don't compare apples with oranges. But the problem is people know what an apple looks like and people know what an orange looks like, but people don't know when they've bought a lemon. Pretty clever what I did there, I thought. Anyway, so what are we going to be talking about is removing and unveiling what's behind the curtains. This comes down to any service that isn't really tangible and you are led to believe that the person that you've got doing the service is doing a good job. Now, this can be bookkeepers, accountants, solicitors, lawyers, anything like that. IT people, marketers, SEO people, SCM people, ad-words people, all these people. Unless you're in the industry and you can double-check and cross-check what they're doing, you don't really know if the voodoo that they do is any good.
