Where you can learn business tips to help your product or brick and mortar business succeed
You've read plenty of posts that tell you the sure-fire ways to succeed in business, but little is said about the best ways to fail in business. Why does that matter? Because when we know what encourages failure we're better equipped to spot the triggers and the signs of failure before it takes a stranglehold on our business. Here are my 3 best ways to fail in business.
And so if you do these three things you're pretty much guaranteed failure - but let's get something clear. Failure isn't a bad thing. Failure can be some of the best learning we'll ever get, though it's not always cheap. It can help us grow, and it can be a fundamental part of your future success.
Remember, some really famous people failed many times before they encountered success. Oprah was fired from her TV job; J.K. Rowling had Harry Potter rejected by 12 major publishers before Bloomsbury took the risk with her first book; Bill Gates failed with his first business; it took Henry Ford 3 attempts to get things right with his business; and Walt Disney's first business ended in bankruptcy. Great reminders that failure can be part of the journey to success. But here's a thought, instead of accepting the inevitability of failure, why not become a failure spotter in your business, and make the tweaks your business needs as you go along, so that you can enjoy success after success. You've got to admit, it's worth a try!
