I’m no expert when it comes to big business decisions, but I do have a gut instinct when it comes to decision making. Warren and I have had many business ideas, and making decisions can be pretty tough indeed. I would describe my blog as my business and each day I have to make important choices.
Big Business Decisions and How to Make Them
I thought I’d pop together a few tips for businesses, decisions and dilemmas and more…
1. Do I go it alone?
I actually think business as a single person is just as daunting as working as a team. Both have their pros and cons, but for me, I like being able to be fully in charge of my business. If you are happy to compromise and possibly take longer to make decisions then a team effort may suit you.
2. How do I market myself/ my brand?
I think this is a tough one. It totally depends on your business. For example, a blogger usually needs to be seen on most platforms plus their blog/vlog. However, if you’re a brand that works visually then Instagram would be a better choice. Find out what works for you.
3. What about when I’m done?
When businesses change or develop, sometimes it makes sense to switch things up a bit. Mergers and Acquisitions with BCMS is a good starting point if this is the direction you plan to go in.
4. How much work is too much work?
You really need to find a balance when it comes to your work/home life. I am awful at this, but my top tip is to definitely have one decent day off. Switch your devices off, but more importantly, switch your mind off.
I think there’s a lot to think about when starting a business. All the decisions and often daunting situations can leave you feeling overwhelmed. I hope I’ve helped ease some worries and answered some questions you may have had.
