Studies have shown that a majority of businesses fail within the first three years. Sometimes it could be not meeting consumer needs, poor marketing or funding issues. Other times it can come down to mindset.
Just because your business hasn't picked up yet, does not mean it never will. If the year 2020 taught us anything, it's that anything can happen. Nothing is permanent.
Having a strong business mindset can separate the best from the rest. Here are 3 mindset shifts to help increase business success.
1. Teamwork makes the dream work.
While it's essential to be resourceful and scrappy when starting out, a successful business can not grow in a vacuum. Remember, you're in good company.
There are plenty of fellow startups to solopreneurs who are also figuring things out as they go along. After all, no one ever has it all figured out.
Join a mastermind group, work with a business coach or attend business retreats to broaden your mind. You never know what type of synergy can happen!
2. Success is never linear.
In the digital world, it's easy to get caught up in other people's "flawless" highlights. Successful business owners will often say "overnight success" takes five to 10 years. The volatility of entrepreneurship is an emotional roller coaster ride.
But it's only natural to compare your business to competitors or other business owners. A healthy dose of competition can be a great motivator when business envy is channeled in the right way.
Leverage your business envy by using it as a motivator to keep going after your vision. See other successes as indication that success is possible.
3. Good marketing reduces the need to sell.
Sales is a key factor to business success. And if you hate selling, you're not alone.
Good marketing should not feel like selling. It should feel like you're helping people solve their problem. This is where Pinterest marketing comes in.
