Everything that grows must be fed, your business is no different. Remember, you are what you eat.. Is the reason that your business isn’t growing because you don’t eat properly? If you want your business to recover from malnourishment, you will need to make drastic changes to your diet.
It’s interesting that none of us would ever expect to live today on the food that we ate four years ago, but we expect our businesses to survive on the educations that we received years ago. The key to consistent growth is to continue to eat. I’ve mentioned before, there are several books that you can read that provide a general understanding of the business world as well as follow the stories of other entrepreneurs, but I do understand that there are many of us that just don’t have the time to sit down and dedicate to reading. [Insert side eye].. You make time to EAT don’t you? We make time to do what we want to do, and when you make eating a priority, you will make the time.
In my mind, reading a 350 page book is the equivalent of preparing one of my Grammmomma’s Thanksgiving feasts.. and though I like to eat, consuming that much information can be overwhelming if not done in moderation. There are other options though. Sometimes when our time is limited, we need to nourish our bodies with what’s available fast, and the same can be done with our businesses. I have been known to listen to audio books as I work and have recently become a huge fan of Netflix.. There are several documentaries available to stream on demand as well as TV shows about entrepreneurs [recent diamonds found: Bloomberg’s Risk Takers], I have dual monitors, so I can have the show on one screen and work on the other.. but no matter what, I always find time to EAT.
