Confused On How To Grow Your Business? Try Leadership Development

Wondering why it is difficult to secure new clients? Are you or someone you know taking on a new business opportunity and need clarity on how to make it work? Well, you are not alone. Check out this story about David. David recently started a new business in merchant services at 57 years old. David’s speciality was unique credit card processing options and business loans. He worked for years in another industry but did not invest his money during those years so that he can have money for retirement. Now, he is trying to build a business so that he can live now and retire in a few years.

David was interested in getting more clients for his company but was unclear on how to go about it. David and I had a conversation about how one of the first steps to being able to compete for business is to get a snap shot of his Leadership and branding strengths and weaknesses so that he can begin to identify how to build his business & compete for new clients. One fact that I shared was that 80%-90% of small business owners go out of business within the first 3 years. Also, that most companies who go out for new business are not prepared to do business. I shared with David, that taking the time to develop as a leader will help him with his development which is needed for communication, negotiations, presentations, and getting business. Most importantly, he would save time from spinning his wheels trying things that do not work and save money on things that would not work or get a return of investment. David is starting a business alignment program to help him identify his best leadership and branding attributes and skills.
