8 Secrets from a national champion to accelerate your business

Nowadays, being a successful businesswoman demands an array of diverse skills and expertise. To ensure that your business can truly make an impact in the world, it should be of a substantial size and a blueprint.

How can you ensure that your business will grow to a substantial size?

You might be in a similar situation to the following:

  • Don’t see a clear plan or strategy on how you will grow your business?
  • You feel uncomfortable about outsourcing or hiring people externally, while at the same time, you know that you won’t be able to do all the work on your own?
  • When your business does grow, you think you might lose the control you have now?
  • Larger companies are interested and are knocking on your door pitching ideas to collaborate with you – but you feel that your business is too small?
  • Don’t want to put in more work, or work harder than you already are now?

This article will provide you with the tools you need, to double your business within 6 months!

Essentially, every business is the same.

The strategy to grow any business is similar. You might believe that your business is completely different – and even if this is true, the main differences lie in what you are selling and how you are running it.  

For business mentors like myself, we can see that every business – in its essence, is the same. No matter what product or services it offers, what country it operates in, or whether the main goal is to launch or to begin scaling up; similar growth strategies apply to all.

What 10 years of business mentoring has taught me

If there’s anything the past 10 years of expertise in mentoring businesswomen has taught me, it’s that the same issues continually recur when women want to grow their businesses.

From this, I have created the Blueprint for a Successful Business Make Over with eight areas that are essential to master when you want to grow your business.

What is a Business Blueprint Definition?

A business blueprint is a strategic plan that tells those operating the business the productivity requirements, the necessary jobs, the milestones, the targets, and the expected outcomes.  A business blueprint is a plan for how you will strategically execute business. According to the How To Entrepreneur 

This is what the website Bleuprints has created in regards to various Business Blueprints. 

What are the 8 Secrets of the Powerful Business Academy Blueprint?

 

1. Mindset

What mindset do you have? Reflect on the following questions:
How do you see yourself? What are the mental obstacles you struggle with? What are the subconscious obstacles you have, that are blocking your ability to reach your full potential? Are you currently programmed for success, mediocracy, or failure? How do you feel and view money?

These are components which affect every aspect of your business, that can expand to topics such as:

  • Beliefs
  • Excuses
  • The subconscious brain
  • Financial mindset
  • Imagination and thinking out of the box
  • Stepping out of your comfort zone

2. Planning

It is crucial to have a clear plan for your business. Can you clearly define your business core values, mission and vision? What makes up the DNA of your company?

How do you create and set achievable targets? How do you budget your finances, and plan for the rest of the year? Too many business owners know too little about finance!

You will need to rethink the following:

  • Values
  • Mission
  • Vision
  • Targets
  • Goal setting
  • Creating annual plans
  • Creating a financial plan

3. Branding

4. Smart tools

 

Making use of valuable tools and resources can help you attract more clients to your business. What specific online marketing and social media tools are beneficial for your business? Also, What can help you to attract more clients easily and quickly?
What can you do to transform your business from the one in many, to the company that others want to do business with straight away?

Extending to tools such as:

  • Creating the perfect website homepage
  • Social media marketing
  • Funnels
  • Free giveaways
  • Webinars
  • Email marketing
  • Newsletters
  • Automation

5. Team

blueprintDo you currently employ staff? If you do, how can you ensure that your staff are working for you, rather than just working for the money? If you don’t, how can you find the perfect fit for someone to join your team and help you grow your business?

You’ll need to think about topics like the following:

  • Profiling and defining your potential co-workers
  • Outsourcing staff
  • Managing your team
  • How to keep your team
  • Delegating tasks
  • Team building

6. Power to accelerate

Is your business fully ready for rapid growth, or will it become stuck and stagnant when there is an influx of new clients?
Do you have the correct systems and smart procedures in place, that allows everyone to know what needs to be done at any given time?

This involves topics of discussion such as:

  • Organization
  • Creating systems, structures and protocols
  • Focus
  • Scaling up
  • International growth
  • Partnerships

7. Flow & Ease

A common obstacle that business owners face when wanting to grow their business is that they fear they will need to work more than they already do or work harder. This is a large misinterpretation and can become a big obstacle for growth!

The art to successful growth is not to work harder – but to work smarter – operating in a more relaxed way, with ease. Knowing to do the right thing at the right time.

Make changes so that time is no longer an issue. Does your current daily routine give you energy, or does it wear you out? In doing this, you will be able to be more productive and get more done in less time.

This requires diving into themes of:

  • Letting go
  • Relaxed work versus hard work
  • Creativity and intuition
  • Pitfalls and obstacles
  • Wellness and taking care of yourself
  • Faith
  • Managing your energy

8. Help & support

blueprint

Find help before you need it! Do the research and search for the expert that best suits you and your needs. Most business owners are used to starting something and fine-tuning what works best on the job, learning the ropes along the way. This can be a major obstacle that can hinder the speed of your business’s growth, as well as enabling mistakes to be easily made.  

It is vital to find out what types of help are available, and what suits you and your business best. Is there anything that truly appeals to you or your business?

Exploring options such as:

  • Joining a mastermind group
  • Getting a mentor
  • Getting a buddy
  • Creating the ideal support system for you

Yes, a successful business requires all 8 skills

You might be thinking, Wow, that is a lot!

I have to admit – this is indeed the case. If you are wanting to grow your business successfully, it never comes down to just adding or changing one thing. Rather, it is a combination of any of the above topics or themes. Any given businesswoman will be lacking in different areas – one will need to think about adding in elements of this, while another will need components of something else.

What is it that you need?

You might already know what you need, or you might not be able to clearly define it yet – because you don’t know what you don’t know!

We all have blind spots, and you must find help and support that is customized to what you require as an individual. 

When you are looking for help, make sure you search for the right help

Nowadays, many business coaches lack the experience of running their own business and can only coach you what they have learned from other guruh’s. Or, they are only able to train you to scale up your business in one way, instead of numerous ways.

Alternatively, a mentor is someone who has experiences of former businesses of their own under their belt – someone who personally deals with these topics daily. A mentor can share their own experiences and provide advice and support with anything you need, to grow your business.
