Small Business Results – A Labor of Love

happy labor day for small business - a labor of love

After being a small business owner and coaching for over 35 years and a Business Strategist for 19, I can promise you a small business owner’s hard work does pay off! Every business owner I know is indeed working very hard.

Entrepreneurship is a labor of love and leaves little time for other pleasures, but I can assure you that staying the course and your efforts will produce results and rewards.

I hope you honor yourself on this Labor Day, as it is dedicated to American workers’ social and economic achievements. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to our country’s strength, prosperity, and well-being.

The Challenge:

The challenge that exists for most of us is waiting for the return of our hard work in business results. We often feel that there is a considerable gap linking effort and return.

You’re not alone if you feel as though your daily efforts don’t produce immediate results. We’ve all experienced the frustration of thinking we are doing all of the right things at the right time, yet we are not quite there. 

The simple truth is that entrepreneurship is a lengthy process filled with trials and tribulations. Therefore, many business owners are frustrated and exhausted, and this might even be a breaking point in business. What is the SOLUTION?

The Solution:

It is imperative to work smarter, not more challenging to achieve your results. I believe the prerequisite to “hard work is even harder choices.”

Hard work pays off when you tackle these four areas:

Improve Your Attitude: How do you perceive hard work? If you feel defeated, you’ve lost the battle before you’ve even begun.

Make Deliberate Choices: Everything starts with a definitive choice. Keep in mind the term consequential thinking – choice, action, outcome. Every single choice of your behavior or activity leads you to action and the desired outcome or not!

Create Effective Habits: It is crucial to keep your vision and strategy in front of you to obtain the results via your daily habits to produce long-term results. 

Execute Relentlessly: To grow, you need help, systems, and procedures to meet daily goals. Delegating each system to be internal or external support will free you up to do what you do best! 

The Result:

Hard work isn’t always fun because, at times, you’d rather spend time doing other things, and we can get worn down. The trick always focuses on how far you have come and not how far you need to go!

A labor of love may appear out of reach, but run steady, produce it anyway, and eventually, your hard work will pay off.
