If you’re looking for business tips for small business owners then we have 5 that will propel you to new heights.
Oprah Winfrey is without a doubt one of the most successful women on earth. Her track record can be traced to when she first started her syndicated talk show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and it has been unrivalled since. So it’s safe to say she knows a thing or two about building a successful business from the ground up.
So, to get you started on what could be the most successful week of your life, we’ve curated 5 business tips from Oprah that will take you from where you are right now, to where you can be. These business tips for small business owners will work wonders for your business…but only if you practice them.
Here they are;
1. Listen to your instinct
Most of us have that gut feeling that tells you what to do. Sometimes, the reason why you don’t follow that feeling is that deep inside you’ve already decided to compare your decisions, business, targets etc with the person running their race next to you.
Listen to what you feel is right for you and go for it. Regret is always worse when you follow someone else’s advice instead of yours.
2. Your intention determines your result
The intention with which you go into business determines your result. And your intention should never be to make money. Your intention should be to serve – in whatever capacity you can. How can you make the lives of others better by what you’re bringing to the table? Lead with the right intention and you will get phenomenal results that will last longer than you can imagine.
3. Don’t pay too much attention to your competition
There is room for healthy competition. But once it starts to get too much of your attention to the point where your focus is more on them than on you, then it becomes unhealthy. Especially for your business. Don’t waste your time in the race looking back to see what the other guy is doing. That takes energy from you, and if they’re too close, it will scare you.
The only person/people you are responsible for is you and all the people working for you. Step up your game and keep your eyes on the prize.
4. Know what you don’t want to do
In business, there are a lot of moments of confusion. The best place to be in times like these is where you know what you don’t want to do. This will oftentimes lead you to what you want to do.
5. Go for what you believe in
Sometimes hearing NO can knock the belief out of you. It almost convinces you that your idea isn’t worth your own time and money. But you need to hang on to what you believe will work. Turn it into your oxygen and breathe it in every day. People might not see what you see, but that’s cause the idea is unique to you. Don’t let go of what you believe. If you believe it is a great idea, it will not only work but pay off!
