"I knew what I wanted to do but not all of what I needed to do to successfully own and run a business." -anonymous
One of the most important steps you can take in educating yourself to own and operate a business is to focus on cultivating a growth mindset.
Business Growth Mindset definition - an individual's way of thinking positively about one's ability to learn how to be successful in business
You're going to make mistakes. You're not going to know everything. No matter how many classes you take or books you read, you will still experience doubt and uncertainty and it's the best place to be! Really, you ask? Yes, because it'll keep you humble, you will learn to accept that you won't have all the answers all the while learning how to find the answers you need and so much more! So level up your business mindset!
3 Benefits of a Business Growth Mindset:
Confidence even when you feel stupid - You recognize that we are all human and it is impossible to know everything. Instead you focus on strengthening your areas of strength and connecting with other businesses or individuals who can help in your areas of weakness.
Experience low stress to be perfect - You understand that no one is perfect and no business is perfect, yet everyone has something unique and valuable to offer; therefore, you do not feel the pressure of being perfect but motivation to keep getting better.
Increased ability to handle mistakes - You desire to enjoy life and all that it has to offer. Therefore, you do not allow one mistake to dictate your knowledge and skill level or ability to do a job well. You embrace mistakes and learn from them, but you do not allow it to cause you to become stuck.
3 Ways to Develop a Business Growth Mindset:
Focus on why you started your business - You saw a need and want to meet those needs. You want to make passive income so you can stay home with your children. You have a health condition that doesn't allow you to work a regular 9-5 job in a brick and mortar building. Whatever it may be, know it and own it.
Set yourself up for success - What works for you may not work for someone else and vice versa. Learn what works for you so you can genuinely establish and grow a profitable business.
Never stop learning - Do not be afraid of learning new techniques, new processes, and new technology. Do not be afraid to say you don't know something. Be brave and confident in what you do know and never stop learning.
