Business owners get all kinds of advice. Some of it is good, and sometimes… let’s just say it’s well-meaning.
- From Becky Duncan… set an alarm (like a beeping alarm on my phone) to remind me when it was time to meet a client for a call. I used to think this was crazy – I was so excited to have clients – how could I forget them?! Now, I’ve gotten so deep into blogging, emails, admin, etc. that beeping alarm has saved my bootie more times than I can count! BeckyLDuncan.com
- From Mary Cravets… stop drinking water an hour before you do a webinar. I got this from a mentor who also suggested that the very last thing you do before starting the webinar is a last quick trip to the bathroom. Maybe not the most elegant or refined advice I’ve ever received, but certainly practical!
- From Lisa Crilley Mallis… celebrate business success with your partner and use a coach to work through the frustrations.Your spouse wants to protect you from disappointment and challenges, and thus his or her advice is based on trying to protect you. A coach’s advice is based on trying to help make your business stronger – often that is not the same thing. One way I celebrate is that each time I have a new VIP client, we go to dinner.

- From Julie Babcock-Hyde… make check lists for everything. This can be everything from launching a Zoom meeting to delivering your services. As your business grows, these checklists take a little stress off because it’s one less thing you have to remember. And when you add team members, these same checklists will help them start strong in your business. SparkAccountingSolutions.com
