You gotta know when to take that next step, especially in business. It’s always prudent to be slow and steady when building a business, but it’s even more important to realize when it’s time to take that leap. A successful entrepreneur must know how to balance the even keel with the risk. If you’re too cautious you may stunt your growth. But on the other hand, if you do too much too soon you might end up cutting your nose off to spite your face.
So how do you know when you have a good balance? I wish I could tell you there’s a magic formula to guide you onto the path of balance in business, but I’m afraid that’s just not the case. What I can do is pass on to you the best advice I received: trust your gut! Listen to yourself, and have confidence that you can make the right decisions. Yes, you will make some mistakes, but without taking a chance there will be no great reward.
You never hear of remarkable people playing it safe. They may play it smart, but safe…hmm, I don’t think so. As Going 2 Natural grows, we’re now entering a phase where chances must be taken with as much preparation as possible. The best answer I can give you is to make sure all your I’s are dotted and T’s are crossed. Try to think of all the possible things that could go wrong, and be proactive about the solutions you may be able to offer.
Take the necessary steps to make sure to secure your choice as best as possible. Trouble shoot your decisions and don’t take them lightly, but also know that you can prepare for only so much. Part of being a successful business owner is being able to think on your feet, and take a bad situation and turn it around. That’s the difference between a good entrepreneur and an exceptional one. There’s no time like the present to take that next step!
