The ‘fiscal cliff’ has been averted, but what does this mean for the future of our country? Where is our economy headed? GbBIS gives you tips to help your business succeed in times of uncertainty.
Tip 1 – Learn to rely on yourself
While networking and relationship building are valuable for your business, they will not save you in a downturned economy. You cannot rely on others for your success and you cannot blame others for your failures. Your destiny is up to you. Learn to be self reliant so that, even if your strategic relationships and networks disappear, your business can still run efficiently.
Tip 2 – Assume the worst
If the economy starts heading south, you should be alert and ready to react. Assume the economy won’t improve and restructure your business so it can run effectively during harsh times. When the economy improves, you will have learned valuable lessons about your employees and about your business.
Tip 3 – Be more active
A downturned economy can be disheartening. It can mean lower sales, less motivated employees, and lower morale. Encourage your employees to be more active. Instead of making 3 or 4 sales calls a day, make 30 or 40. Being more active will generate more results and show you which employees are worth investing in.
