What To Expect When Growing Your Business – Christian Business Coaching
There are so many stats that point to the failure that most businesses run into after they get started. There’s quotes by Forbes, Bloomberg, small business administration, and numerous other sources that have investigated businesses that start with grand ambition and big dreams only to run into failure after a few months or a few years. Why do they fail so frequently? Why do so many businesses run into trouble and are not able to pull out of their negative downward spiral to enjoy the success of their efforts? These are very important questions to ponder and understand.
Tim Redmond, Christian business coaching expert loves the quote that Napoleon Hill said almost a century ago. It goes like this, nature cannot be tricked or cheated. She will give up to you the object of your struggles only after you have paid her price. Are you willing to pay the price that your business and your marketplace in your customers require of you in order to break the gravitational pull of failure and begin the orbit and a high level of profitability? Are you willing to pay the price to set up scalable and do applicable systems that can work in achieving high levels of satisfaction with your customers even if you are not there? Are you willing to pay the price to insist on high levels of performance from your employees during their entire time they’re at work at your business?
In order to grow the company and overcome the obstacles that are certain to come its way to derail and possibly destroy the progress the business owner may, they have to start with a deep sense of commitment and longevity. I just heard a couple of very successful entrepreneurs today talking about starting a new venture. One of the first commitments they made you say I will only accept you in the partnership only if you have a 10 year commitment to this business no matter what happens. Why did they require that level of commitment? Is because it takes that long to bring a company from the struggle stage into the orbit stage. To bring a company from losing money or barely breaking even to reaching high levels of profits, loyal customers, and a bright outlook on the future. It requires a long-term commitment.
As part of this long-term commitment, a business owner has to have a plan that they can execute. Business plans are commonly thought of as these 40 page or higher documents that has endless dribble about the details of the marketplace and how the growth is going to happen and how resources are to be allocated. The problem with these longer business plans is that there rarely referred to in the heat of the battle as the business grows. There are so many changes that occur in the marketplace that change so many of the 40 pages and abet a symbol for the business plan, that is too difficult to update the business plan to be able to implement that way proper basis.

Tim Redmond, Christian business coach of choice for hundreds of businesses around the nation, believes and had a 1 to 2 page business plan that is constantly referred to on a weekly basis and updated on a weekly basis that. The quote from Pablo, the great painter, playwright, sculptor, and stage designer, very much applies in this topic. Here is what he said – our goal can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon lot which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.

A business owner must have not just a business plan but an ongoing annual, quarterly, monthly, weekly, and daily planning process to constantly evaluate what is working and what is not working. That’s where so many business owners get off track on the subject of business plans. If the plan fills too many pages and refers to too many topics that it cannot be managed on a weekly and monthly basis than the plan is untenable and is not useful for the business owner to chart the course of their business grow. What is needed is the daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual focus and discipline to define, act, evaluate, and redefine. Power to Create Wealth
So what is needed more than anything during the early stages of your business grow is the disciplined, consistent application and implementation of the business plan. What is required is establishing a regular routine of marketing generating leads, calling those leads and converting them in the sales, and delivering your product and service in such a dramatic way it causes the client to say wow. It is true the consistent revisiting of your business plan, then revising it as necessary to change your marketing and sales processes in fine tuning them to produce outstanding results.
