Lots of small businesses start from a tiny home office and then as the Company grows and prospers the need for extra Staff becomes paramount to the continuation of growth and the necessity to expand into a bigger more practical working environment grows. Finding the right working facility for you and your new Team is vital, enough room for all your desks, good lighting, heating and ventilation, does the venue have enough car park spaces, is it on a reliable public Transport route?
When you control a thriving business and your employees rely on you to provide them with plenty of work for years to come and money to spend on their families and save for their futures you are under a lot of pressure. Being flexible in your approach, having good business ideas and Planning Maps, being blessed with natural organisational skills alongside a good sense of humour, pure dedication and hard-work are crucial. Having an analytical way of thinking, being organised, keeping detailed records and being prepared to make personal sacrifices are all part and parcel of running a successful company as well as being prepared to work long hours and complete any job that needs doing.
Treat any new or loyal customers with respect and courtesy, treat them how you would want to be treated, analyse your competition, learn from their mistakes and offer a reliable, affordable service. Look at the rewards and the risks of everything you do, be creative, stay focused and continue to be consistent and fair, this way your successful business will thrive.
