Scale and Leverage – Have Your Own Business? Part 2
Continued From March 7, 2017:
3) SCALE ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS FOR SALES & BRANDING
People do business with people they know, like, and trust. You have to become relevant. The more people know you, like you, and trust you, the more they are willing to pay you or partner with you or work with you. Run advertising campaigns to get your name in front of as many people in your target market as possible, then it will be much easier to close big deals.
4) LEVERAGE, LEVERAGE, LEVERAGE!
You can’t go that BIG by yourself. Instead of spending my profits on luxury items that will depreciate, I’m reinvesting it back into the company to build infrastructure, bigger offices, more employees, more tools, more advertising, etc. If you aren’t all-in then you don’t believe enough in your vision and everyone around you will sense that.
5) OUTWORK ALL YOUR COMPETITION AND BELIEVE YOU CAN DO IT!
There will be many obstacles in your path when you 10X your business, but you need to BELIEVE that you can do it, and then you need to ACT on that belief and work harder than all your competition. Your work ethic will inspire your team and your partners and your friends and your family, and you will be so busy producing that you won’t have time to listen to the haters who try to tell you it’s impossible.
6) HAVE FUN AND BE PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT YOU DO!
Hard work is great, but it will wear you out. Make sure that you LOVE what you do, and if you don’t love it, then get someone else to do it. Fill your day with tasks that you LOVE and that you are passionate about and you will suddenly find yourself inspired to wake up every day to crush out your goals!
7) SUCCESS LEAVES CLUES – MODEL AFTER SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE!
Don’t model after your co-workers, or friends, or family or anyone that isn’t where you are trying to go. Instead, choose a few role models that are at the next level and model after their daily behaviors. What time do they wake up? What books do they read? What activities do they do for their business? What activities do they pay others to do for their business? Don’t just choose one person, get a handful because it’s likely that your personality type will be a combination of a few people. One person won’t have all the answers for you.
8) TAKE BIG RISKS AND EXPERIMENT OFTEN!
Finally, you can’t be afraid of failure if you want to go BIG FAST. You need to be willing to take risks. You need to be willing to fail. You need to be willing to experiment as often as you can. Every month you should experiment with something NEW until you find something that works like crazy and fits your style. The key to explosive growth is to take big gambles and give it everything you’ve got!
I’ve been applying these 8 steps above and in just one year I was able to move to a new city and grow a brand new company into a 25,000 square foot office with over 50 full time salaried employees (US based) and we are already looking at bigger offices to expand into.
