Various scaling models for businesswomen to grow their business

Various scaling models for businesswomen to grow their business

How do you find the scaling model to grow your business which suits you?

Nowadays most businesswomen only hear that you can grow your business online.

There is a lot of focus on online advertising, email marketing, social media marketing, linked-in marketing, writing blogs, recording videos and more.

And yes all of these actions are possibilities to grow your business. But the more traditional models from before we did business online, still work very well.

Only one scaling model is being taught nowadays

It is not a surprise that the old school methods are not well known. A lot of the business coaches that are out there only know the online scaling model, because it is THE way they grow their own business. And because it works for them they teach this model to businesswomen.

Spending a lot of time online is distracting

Your clients might not be so much online. I often hear from my own clients that they don’t spend a lot of time online since they find it distracting and a waste of their time.

Many self-employed businesswomen spend a lot of time online. Could there be a correlation between the small business they often have and the time they spend online and the way they desperately try to grow their business with only one method?

It is all about serving more clients

When you want to grow your business seriously there are more ways to grow and stopping to surf the internet will give you a lot more time to work ON sustainable business growth.

And although often you might not know how to do this, and it might even be scary….

In your heart, you really want to serve more clients.

And there are people out there who can help you to choose the model which suits you and then execute a strategy together with you.

Growing your business is so much fun.

It is nearly every business women’s desire, and because she does not know how too, her business often remains (very) small. That is such a waste of potential since we need bigger businesses of women out there in the big business world.

When you have trained your brain well enough to make sure you

  • do not feel overwhelm
  • do doubt yourself
  • can easily go outside your comfort zone
  • can get rid of having to have control all the time

Then growing your business is a lot of fun and it is very rewarding because you’ll serve more people.

Here are some of the old school scaling models

  1. Employing people
  2. Find a business partner
  3. Train the trainer
  4. Improve your off-line sales strategy
  5. Ambassadors program
  6. Strategic alliances
  7. Visit networking events
  8. Exhibit on expo’s
  9. Growing internationally
  10. Find agents
  11. Cold calling
  12. Franchising

In the next series of blogs, I will explain about all the different models.

So stay tuned and find me on social media or in your inbox.

How to Defy Social Expectations as a Businesswoman

How to Defy Social Expectations as a Businesswoman

Realizing your Own Career Aspiration

As a young girl, you may have had many career aspirations. You may have wanted to be a teacher, a lawyer, a marine biologist, or perhaps, a cowgirl. It is children’s nature to let their imaginations take them to many dreams and aspirations. However, as they grow older, these dreams become more structured and realistic. You may have pictured yourself growing up to be strong and successful, just like the female role models in your life and imagine yourself as a successful businesswoman

Overcoming Social Expectations

Later at a point in life, some of you who are reading this might have realized your one true career aspiration, is to own a business. Yes, that’s right! and here you are reading this as a female entrepreneur with so many career goals while quite a number of difficulties are also piercing through your mind.

Do the Only Successful Entrepreneurs come from the Masculine Gender?

Nevertheless ladies, believe me you have the courage and you are at the right place and you sure can face it and overcome it and you can be a powerful businesswoman. “The Social Expectations”. The social impact is apparent in the differences in advice given to males compared to females, even at a young age. Girls are often encouraged to be responsible and organized. It can be argued that boys do not feel obligated to have these attributes in order to succeed.

Old School Categorizing || Girls vs Boys Judging by their Neatness of School Work.

Remember when one of your classmates submitted an assignment without signing their name in school? One of the most common practices for finding the author, was to analyze the neatness of the handwriting. It was common for a messy assignment to be attributed to a male, while neat handwriting would be found to have a female author. Was this just a result of stereotypes or did girls really put more value on neat writing than boys? What about you? To which category did your handwriting fell in to?

Women need not be inside a frame when performing their best

We teach women to be good students in school. To write neatly. To color within the lines. When women enter the workforce, we tell them to perfect their PowerPoints for an idea pitch. We tell them to practice only the common methods, some which have been tried and succeeded, but some of those which will never prove a point as the result depends on the nature of your business.

A Little help now & then won’t Hurt

You need more than a team, a dream, a proposal to get investors to get their wallets out of their pockets. Women seek more help and support. They are often insecure about their ideas and strategies, while a man just believes he can, a woman needs more encouragement to believe the same. Working with an all-round business mentor will help tremendously who has made some effort not always trying to be prim & prom like a lady but tried some of the things the masculine way too.

Being bold and self-respect to become a successful businesswoman

What women really need, perhaps, is to be advised to be bold. You must value yourselves for more than your practical skills, but rather, you are appreciated for your ideas, innovativeness, bravery & you must not fear to fail. It’s time to stop the behaviors that put destructive unconscious thoughts in the minds of young girls that later present in their sense of self-worth. If this can be accomplished, women may be willing to be braver, to go further, and to expect more out of themselves than they have in the past. Which results in more women being a businesswoman and also having bigger businesses than then is the case now.

Final Outcome, A Result of Clearing all Societal Obstacles || Success

A result of making this change, is Tineke Rensen who started her business very young, entered the male dominated sport “Whitewater Kayaking” & became the National Champion who also used great qualities of the young woman in her; the title “Female Entrepreneur”  Is now a days a lot more common from when she started, 30 years ago and is now a more common goal for young girls, such as her very own daughter and for the businesswoman.

Outsourcing for Businesswomen, The Do’s and Don’ts

Outsourcing for Businesswomen, The Do’s and Don’ts

Overall, businesswomen find it difficult to start outsourcing.

They hesitate and postpone because they:

  1. think they can do a better job themselves
  2. think it is cheaper when they do it themselves
  3. are afraid that something will go wrong with their clients
  4. are afraid of losing control
  5. believe it will cost them too much time
  6. don’t know who to outsource to
  7. when do you outsource a task
  8. do not create systems which makes outsourcing easier

So, in a businesswoman’s mind, there are a lot of reasons to keep doing everything by themselves.

Outsourcing is a fantastic way to grow your business

What most businesswomen want is to grow their business. And guess what? Outsourcing is a great way to start managing your growth. You cannot grow fast or big when you keep doing everything yourself. I always call this, the Me-Myself-and-I businesses. Unless it is a deliberate choice to stay small with the business these Me-Myself-and-I businesswomen are often

  • frustrated
  • overwhelmed with difficulties and the number of tasks they need to do
  • tight on budget
  • juggling with time
  • blaming themselves because they do not have the results, they desire

Their business is not bringing them what they dreamed of.

It is a phase in your business where you should spend as little time as possible. And outsourcing is one of the possibilities to scale up your business. And you can keep scaling up like this no matter how big you want to grow your business.

So when you are ambitious and growth is not working for you the way you planned it read the tips in this article.

1. They think they can do a better job themselves

businesswomenThis is often not true unless it is the area where they have been a specialist in for many years. Running your business needs a tremendous amount of specialists. No businesswomen can be good at all of this. I often hear when it comes to outsourcing social media that the other person does not communicate the way she wants. Well, guess what it takes a little time for the other person to start to get used to your way of communicating. And you can also ask this person to send you an overview of all the messages for the week and adjust and then approve them before posting.

Nobody is better than a specialist, so why do you want to become a specialist in all areas of doing business?

 

2. They think it is cheaper when they do it themselves

Many businesswomen do not outsource because they are trapped in the mindset that they believe it is cheaper to do it themselves.

This is often not true. It costs time to learn a new skill. This often goes with frustration about the difficulties of learning it and the disappointments about the results. And then they invest in training. And guess what, you will never have the results these specialists have. They promise you mountains but don’t forget they have been training themselves for years to tweak their approach and techniques to get the results they have. Are you willing to spend that much time as well? For just one specialism in business?

So all the time and money you spend to learn it yourself often does not bring you the results you want.

Had the task been outsourced from the beginning money would have been made already because the specialist knows how to do this.

3. Are afraid that something will go wrong with their client

Yes, that is definitely a possibility. But why freak out about it when it has not even happened yet. And when it does you just solve the issue and apologize. The world does not stop when that happens. Women are so much service-oriented that they want nothing to two wrong. That is wishful thinking.

The person you outsource too has to learn and when they learn you can count on mistakes to be happening. In my opinion that should not stop you from starting to outsource.

These businesswomen make mistakes themselves as well. It is a part of the game of learning and growing for businesswomen.

4. Are afraid of losing control

There is no need for that. There are various tools nowadays where you can delegate and check the progress. You can ask them to report back to you how often you want.

But bear in mind, when you do outsource to a professional often, they know a lot better than you, so why don’t you trust them a little more?

5. Believe it will cost them too much time

businesswomenYes, it will cost time to delegate. Especially in the beginning, you both have to get used to how to communicate. You have to show someone else to do a task that you can do in 10 minutes and it might take you 20 minutes to start to delegate it.

And it might take you another 10 minutes to check it and give feedback.

But you only do this once or twice. After that, it will save you time.

You need to be prepared to spend time to delegate tasks to someone and it could take you months before you really start to see the benefit. But when you want to scale top your business and do more of the things you are good at and make your money with, it is a period you have to go through.

6. Don’t know who to outsource to

Yes, you can pick the wrong person to outsource to. Someone who does not deliver the results you are looking for. Someone who might even con you. But is that the reason to keep your business small and keep doing everything yourself.

There are many platforms now always where you can find freelancers. If one does not deliver what you want, just move on to the next one. Ask on LinkedIn if you are looking for someone. Before you start working with them ask for references. Test them by having them do a little task first.

7. When do you outsource a task?

Check out this marvellous image which tells you when you need to outsource a task.

 

businesswomen

8. Do not create systems which makes outsourcing easier

When you outsource you have to create systems of your tasks. Everything you want to outsource has to be documented clearly, with screenshots or with a describing video, of where to click and what to add where.

So, every task has a beginning and an end and every sub-task within the big task need to be documented. Yes, that takes time. But it helps you to go through your work in a systematized way, which is very good. And once documented you can outsource it to everybody. If they are able to follow closely the steps you have documented, with links, screenshots, tutorial videos, etc. it is easy to outsource stuff.

When you think now, that is too much work for me, I rather do it myself. then you have missed the point of this blog. growing does not always come easy. And going from one place to another phase means you need to stretch yourself and you will need to learn new things. And one thing is to learn how to outsource and delegate. Once you have mastered this, it becomes fun.

And all the simple things you don’t have to anymore. How much time will you save with that?

All the things you don’t like to do you can outsource too. How much more fun will you have then?

Good luck with outsourcing.

The Dutch government decides for a 30 % Female Quota in the commissioner’s board

The Dutch government decides for a 30 % Female Quota in the commissioner’s board

We NEED more women playing in the bigger league

It is proven when more women take high positions, the happiness and well-being of the workforce will improve. The profit of the company grows and there is more harmony everywhere.

Why is it then that there are so few women in boardrooms?

There are many reasons I can see, such as:

Men are operating on a higher level so much longer than women are.

Not so long ago our moms were not working. They were at home taking care of the children and the household. Women still need to get used to the fact that working full time and have a high position or big business is totally possible. Also when having children.

Women position themselves differently than men

When a woman is asked for a position she will hesitate when she sees tasks she is not yet capable of. Men figure they will find out and are not hindered by that fact.

Women like to be modest men like to bluff

Women will only mention something as one of her assets when she has accomplished it. And even then she will think of it as bragging. Men don’t think that way, they are proud of their achievements and for them, it is important to get the status that goes with the assets.

The old boy’s network

Men have strong bonds and connections and are strategic in their networking. Therefore they often hear from first hand when a position will be available. And this is a system, that keeps itself in place. I am not saying this is on purpose and that women are not welcome.

I cannot speak from my own experience because I have always had my own business, but from what I hear when a woman reaches the top she often is not supporting other women. If that is true that is awful, because she, for sure, she did not get there without the support of other men and women.

Women need to support each other the same way men do and also create strong bonds.

Strategic networking with networks for women who have high positions is a good idea.

The part-time mentality

My country, The Netherlands is a bad example when it comes to working part-time. We are the worlds number one with women working in part-time jobs. I’ve read when every woman in my country would work 1 more hour there would be no vacancies and our economy would grow enormously. Working part-time is a choice.  When doing so, operating in the big league will be very difficult because often many hours are required with the top positions.

After every strong man stands a strong woman

It takes a strong and emancipated husband to support his wife to work full-time and let her bring in more money while he steps back a little. For us women, this is often a natural step to take. But the other way around seems to be more difficult.

Many women don’t consider a position in an advisory board

Why is this the case? Simply because they have not heard about it. For a long time, I was not even aware that such an entity existed. I always thought it would stop when you are the highest director.

The women are not there

This is what is often the reason why a vacant commissioners function is taken by yet another man. But there is searching and searching. And finding the right women needs a different approach than the current ones. Yes, probably more time is needed. But the women are there!

Women are overruled more easily.

I heard of a story wherein the advisory boardroom with 4 women and 3 men, somehow the men managed to make the decisions. What happened? Men did what they always do. Talk to each other in the breaks and creating bonds and alliances, when the women were drinking a coffee and using the breaks to relax and chit chat. When the meeting continued the men advocated their common decisions and the women were not prepared. I am bot blaming either of them, there is just learning here.

My personal opinion about female quota

I have always been against a female quota because my statement was “women need to start working more if they have big ambitions and learn to manage their household and kids better and delegate more.” It is what I did with my business.

I started small as most of us do, but my business did not stay small. And when the kids came that was a great opportunity for me to learn to delegate and outsource more. My first employee entered the business when I took pregnant leave. And when you have one staff member, the step to more is a lot easier.

I now think differently about female quota because of all the unconscious biases we still have about men and women in the working arena.

In my own area “Women in Business” the same issues are at play.

  • Women do not start a business as often as men.
  • Women’s businesses are a lot smaller than those of men.
  • They take fewer risks, (which can also be good, but growth will go slower)
  • They position themselves not a strong as they are.
  • Also, they have less affinity with the money part of the business.

In this article, I took the black and white position to make things clear. There are many women who are different and there are many men who are different too. And there are lots of men who support women and fight for us to be treated equally.

There is so much which women can learn from men though, without becoming a man on heels, wearing a skirt. And of course, this goes vice versa. We can all learn from one another.

What’s your mission?

What’s your mission?

Everything we build starts with a foundation. Regardless or whether you are building is abstract or concrete, you have to start with a foundation; and its successor completion depends on how well you build that foundation.
If you have a business or just starting to build one, you need to start with the core: your vision and mission for your company.

You start with your mission. When you set your mission, it should not be about the products or services you provide; it should be about you: who you are and what your goals are. Before you start your business, you must have a mission in mind, since it guides you in making all your business decisions.

As much as possible, it should be your mission, and not anybody elses. However, that is not always the case. Businesswomen can sometimes get busy with a consultant who is creating a business mission for them.
Although it is convenient, there’s no one else better to craft your mission than YOU. The mission should match you.  It should move you, and touch you. It should act as a force to propel you, even more, to work hard for your business.

Furthermore, your mission should also attract and move your employees. Otherwise, they’re not a good fit for your company.

Your core values ​​should reflect on your mission. It should be an integral part of knowing what your mission is. For example, if one of your core values ​​is your family, then you’re ignoring yourself, you’re neglecting yourself, then you’ll be in conflict. It’s just a matter of time before guilt starts to sink in. When one of your core values ​​is to be busy and you are busy with other people, then you are also neglecting a part of yourself. The point is your core values ​​should be in sync with your mission and they should be hand-in-hand in building a good foundation for your business or company.

How to face challenges for businesswomen and turn them into your favor

How to face challenges for businesswomen and turn them into your favor

 

At some point, I was travelling to Zürich in Switzerland. One of my businesses is a businesswomen’s network and I live in the Netherlands.
The network is for international businesswomen and one chapter is stationed in the beautiful city, Zürich, which is surrounded by mountains.
I was only going to stay one night to attend the meeting because of the half years existence celebration, but something happened what changed my mind. I booked another flight and extended my accommodation and rented a car because I was going to stay for 4 days. I had a few Skype meetings planned during those days and I could do those anywhere.

 

What happened?

 

Just 4 days when I left to Zürich I heard that my local representative of the “Powerful Business Women’s Network” in had to stop because she is pregnant and things became to busy for her. I hardly knew anybody in Zürich, that’s why I work with local representatives.

Would you see this as a disaster or an opportunity?

I chose to see it as an opportunity. I travelled to Zürich with no idea how to approach this, but I knew that I would somehow fix it and travel up and down to Zürich if needed. Because the members deserved good quality meetings.

There are a few things that are important when you face a challenging situation like this. And it is totally different from what every business book, every business guru and every business strategist tells you.
And it is also very much the opposite of what most businesswomen usually do.
Women like to be totally prepared and in control!
I went to Zürich with no plan.

 

What does a business woman need to do or have?

 

  • An unlimited trust in yourself and in the circumstances that will occur. Even if you don’t know yet what will happen. (I call that giving the Universe the possibility of stepping in. Or you could also call it: Set yourself up for great coincidences to happen)
  • An open mind.
  • Stay away from trying to fix it immediately
  • Stay away from making plans immediately.
  • Definitely NOT worry and stress about it. You have to be able to relax about it.

The days before I left, I tried not to worry about it and just did the things I had to do at that time.
I went to bed early because I knew I needed my energy for anything that would come up unexpectedly.
I stayed focused on the idea that a solution would appear. Not knowing what would come and what the solution would be.
The only thing I had decided was to already plan a flight for the next month and give myself a month to find out whatever needed to happen.

The day before I left for Zürich, all of a sudden I got a few new Facebook invitations from people in Zürich. One of them seemed like a potential member, so I made an appointment to meet with her. We never met before.
I remembered there was another businesswoman from Zürich who had reached out to me on social media before, but I did not see at the time why we would meet, but now it could become useful to get to know each other, so I made an appointment with her too. We also never met before.

So with 2 appointments in 4 days and some locations, I wanted to scout for possible monthly meetings, and the unlimited believe that I would somehow fix this I left home to the airport in Amsterdam, looking forward to this challenge and opportunity and be ready for whatever would come my way.

 

Businesswomen need to stay focused and dare to ask

 

I was very focused during the monthly meeting of our network in Zürich. All the women always pitch and I heard that one person had a lot of connections in big corporate organizations. I know these organizations all have their diversity goals and are looking for ways to match these goals. And one goal could be to sponsor a female business network.
During the networking time, I asked her if she would have time for a meeting in the next coming days and she had. I also told her about the purpose of the meeting. That I needed help finding potential sponsors, locations, and members. (At the time I thought it was very blunt of me but I had not much time in Zürich).

The next day we already met in the morning. What a coincidence that this busy woman had an hour for me the next day! She came prepared and had given it a thought, thanks to my ask and being clear on the purpose of the meeting. I had only seen her once before. She was very happy to help and gave me 3 very interesting connections. One investor with his own location and 2 female networkers with a large network in Zürich and also in London. (And it is not a coincidence that we also have a chapter in London). I tried to get hold of them but they did not have time shortly.

 

Client binding leads to new ideas for businesswomen

 

I had also come up with the idea to meet a few of my Zürich members. I wanted to get to know them, ask them how the meetings were and what they would like to add. This was very helpful and they gave me some new ideas. One of the members invited me to a BNI business networking meeting on Friday morning.
I had to wake up at 5.30 but I decided to do that because I had not planned it and it was a good opportunity. I speak German very well due to my times as a ski-teacher in my early years.

For the first time, I had to pitch in German. That was a challenge but I tried not to worry too much. It went well. And It had a fabulous result. I asked for possible free rooms for our meetings, for sponsors, and for keynote speakers. And know this has to be done in only 40 seconds!

It appeared to be a very productive chapter. Very generous and helpful businesswomen who are very supportive. Also towards me, a total stranger.

 

The result of the meeting was:

 

• One room sponsored by a big organization who works with women and who wants to expand to the Netherlands. We will be in touch about this, because I, of course, have connections in the Netherlands.
• One invitation for dinner to discuss to have a meeting with my women at his location.
• I walked up to an insurance company and asked if they would be interested to host a meeting and they were.

The last evening I was invited to one of my Zürich members’ house. She appears to have a very, very large business women’s network in Switzerland and she just did not have the time yet to invite her network to our former meetings.
We discussed her approach to promote my women’s network to her network.

The last meeting was on Saturday morning with the woman I got to know form FB just 2 days prior to my trip. She wants to become a new member and might even be interested to run the chapter after a while. And I could also connect her to a possible investor in Switzerland and someone who can help her expand to China. And I know very few people in Switzerland still.

Looking back is what all businesswomen should do

Looking back at this trip and writing this column waiting for my flight, the results are remarkable. I left with two meetings and no plan.
And I come back with

• Lots of invitations (5 minimum) to have free meetings at various locations because they are interested to get to know the high-end businesswomen of my network.
• A new member, who might even be able to run the chapter in the near future.
• Somebody who will actively promote the network to her connections
• 2 possible keynote speakers who I can invite for free.
• Two female networkers I still have to talk to them but who could possibly send new businesswomen to get to know our network in Zürich and London.
• An invitation to go to another BNI chapter, close to Zürich to promote my network over there, with all the new possibility’s that has in store for me.
• I had 9 meetings in total!

 

Did I know all of this would happen?

 

No! Not at all!
But I did know things WOULD happen. Because I left my house with the expectation that things would happen that would serve me and the members.

Running your business is as if you are running down a river in a kayak

Running your business is as if you are running down a river in a kayak

 

I started white water kayaking when I was 18. It’s not a sport that attracted many women, but I was not a very girly woman anyway.I was not immediately hooked to the sport. The first time in a kayak on a wild river was during the Christmas holidays. Imagine how cold it was….I flipped over immediately when I entered the river and I felt as if I nearly drowned, so I was not very keen to go on another trip a few days later. It took a lot of convincing of others, and when I decided to get into my kayak I had tears running down my cheeks from fear. I was terrified. I was the last one to enter the river and the rest was already gone. Here I was in a situation that scared me a lot and with no support at all.

 

What happens when you surrender to your fear?

 

I could not stop the damn kayak anymore, so I decided to follow the river. I started to understand the water a little bit so I felt more in control and I could let go of the fear and starting to enjoy it bit by bit.

Boy am I glad that I did this second trip. I did not flip over, did not get cold. I learned to manoeuvre the damn thing and when we finished, I was hooked.

 

That is how it all started

 

I started my first business when I was 25. And guess where it was all about?

Indeed, whitewater kayaking.

I took people from our flat country, the Netherlands to the rivers of the Belgian Ardennes.

It started my business on my own with 5 kayaks on the roof of my car. And my clients following me in their car, driving happily to Belgium.

I did not have a plan for my business only that I wanted to teach as many people as I could, the sport that I started to love.

My business always grew by the demands of my clients. when they asked why we did not offer mountain-biking, we started to offer mountain-biking and so on.

In 22 years, this developed into an international SME which was operating in 4 different countries at 6 different locations.

 

When the kids came, I did not go away so much anymore, and I started to employ more staff.

It was a difficult period because I now had to hire people who did the work I used to do and I also started hiring an office because I could not work from home anymore. My expenses increased a lot.

On the other hand, it also allowed me to start to scale from a one-person business to a real business with an office, a warehouse, staff, vans, trailers, and so on.

I was quite proud.

It’s going on

In the meantime, my hobby always remained white water kayaking. Every holiday was spent on the river. With our first child sleeping in the pram next to the river when mom and dad were training on a particular spot.

I got selected for the Dutch freestyle kayaking team and became the national champion in 2003.

It was a busy and vibrant time.

Running the business, raising the kids and training a lot. Which was often abroad.

 

Eventually, I sold this business after 22 years because I saw no more growth. When I started there was hardly any competition and we created a whole new industry in our country. “The outdoor and survival industry”.  Too much competition was born, and clients started to be more concerned about the amount they paid than about their own personal safety.

 

The next business was born

 

I started mentoring other business people to help them to scale up their business because that is what I did myself.

 

When I look back at it, running a river is very similar to running a business.

 

Goalsetting for businesswomen

 

Before you go on a river, you always have to know what the start is and the end. You have to know when you finish when you reached the endpoint. If you et off at the wrong part of the river, it might be very difficult to find your way out, but when you paddle to the end you can get out smoothly and walk to the car that is already parked near the end.

Goal-setting is the same. When you try to stop halfway, you are nowhere, and you might not even know how to stop or when to stop. But when you reach your goals the next goal is very obvious, and you can start all over again smoothly.

 

When things get rough

 

When the river gets rough the first thing you do is try to stop and get ashore. You take a distance and walk along the river to find a clear route to navigate.

Often when things get rough in our business we forget to let go and take a distance to find out what is happening. You cannot see a clear rout if you stay in the midst of the roughness in your business. You are surviving. When you do this in a kayak it is like putting your life at stake. So you would not do it, but why do it in your business?

 

Let go of control

 

When you want to control everything in your business and are top of it all the time, you are constantly (and often secretly) scared that things will go wrong. You are working hard to avoid things from going wrong. It is so much easier to follow the flow and let go of control See what appears and then course correct instead of preventing everything from going wrong.

When are not following the current in a kayak it is wasting a lot of your energy, you will be fighting the water and that is a foolish thing to do? With a few gentle strokes and with following the water of the river you will get down smoothly and easily and not very tired at all.

 

Doing everything yourself

 

On the river, you can’t be on your own unless you like to play with your life. (of course, this depends on your level of expertise and the difficulty of the river)

You always need people to help you carry your kayak when the river gets too kayakcomplicated or to post on difficult passages with a safety-line, or even rescue you when you flip over and can’t come back up and have to take a swim. It is pretty difficult to grab your boat your paddle and get all of it to shore when it is very rough. So, on the river, you are always a team. And you need to trust them with your life sometimes.

Why do so many small business owners do everything on their own?

To save money? It is what I thought too when I had to employ someone because my first baby girls were born, but it appears to be a false belief. Because I could scale up all of a sudden because there was more capacity.

On your own you can never paddle on the very difficult rivers, you can only scale up in difficulty when you paddle with others who are there to show the way, to protect you and help you when needed.

 

Always find a better person than yourself

 

It is so important in business that you learn from someone else. Someone who already did what you are about to get your business into. That is the safest, fastest and easiest way to get better.

Same with kayaking. When an experienced one paddles upfront and you can see the best route, you can follow that is a lot easier than deciding yourself what is the safest route.

And I can tell you in both situations I felt a lot more at ease knowing that someone showed me the way.

 

Teaching others

 

I was teaching people to learn how to kayak and improve their skills and now I am a mentor for business people that want to scale up.

I love to support and help business owners with my 29 years of international business experience. It is so rewarding when they take steps and start to grow.

First, we work on the basics and fundamentals. As you do with kayakking, Work on the techniques and the skills and then go rougher.

  • The basics of a business are your:
  • core values
  • mission
  • goals and targets
  • systems
  • and procedures.All of this is the foundation you need when you want to scale up.

 

Spend a lot of time on the fundamentals

 

In kayaking, it can be very dangerous when you start to paddle too difficult rivers when you are still a beginner. There are techniques you need to practice over and over. And often that is a lot less challenging than conquering dangerous and challenging rapids.

Business owners, men, in particular, like to scale up fast. But when the fundamentals of the business are not right the business can collapse under its own success.

Before scaling up the procedures, the technology, your team, your business partners, the communication, the client journey everything has to be ready. And then scaling up your business is very easy. When more clients come in everything works smoothly and there need to be no constant course corrections. Which are often costing a lot of stress, money and time.

 

I remember once that I was really proud that I paddled my first grade 5 rapid and I thought I made it without a problem. There are only 6 grades. So, it was very difficult and dangerous. My mentor corrected me and showed me where I went a little wrong and where I had to course correct a few times, and that I had been lucky that nothing went wrong.

 

Business owners are proud of course correction, solving a problem gives a good feeling, but what if this is not needed? What if everything goes the way it is supposed to go, because all your fundamentals are in place and everything is working the way it is supposed to be, and everybody knows exactly what to do and say?

Why looking for the adrenaline of scaling up too fast?

 

Distraction or focus

 

It is unthinkable when you are paddling a big rapid that you can look around and enjoy the scenery. That is distracting and you could hit a rock that completely changes your direction, or worse it flips you over which makes you very vulnerable. Being upside down in the water is not a good place to be.

So, you stay laser-focused and watch everything closely in front of you what is coming next so that you can immediately course correct.

 

In business, being laser-focused is not so easy anymore because of all the distractions that are there on your phone nowadays. And yet it is one of the most important skills. Having a laser-sharp focus which is guided by, your core-values, your mission, your goals and your targets, makes doing business really easy.

 

Take good care of yourself

 

The fitter you are the easier kayaking becomes. I assume everybody agrees to this. The fitter you are, the easier doing business becomes. Why do I see so many businessmen with large stomachs?

Because you need no energy?

Because you do not have to work long days sometimes

When this concerns you be honest with yourself. Everything is easier when you lose weight also when you are doing business.

 

When you can’t see what’s coming behind the corner…..

 

When you paddle on a high level you will often find a lot of big boulders that are blocking your vision. What to do? Getting out of your kayak can be time-consuming. What we do is find out if you can see the next stop down the river where you can paddle to and lay still to find out what’s next. If you can always see just 10 or 20 meters ahead and you are very sure that you can make it there and stop there it is the best way of going down a river. And most often you can continue like this down the whole rapid or the whole river.

 

In business, it is the same. You set a goal and often you have no idea how to get there. You can’t see it yet. But you can see the next step that you can make. Well, guess what? Make that step, because it is the same as when you paddle down the river. The landscape has changed, you have a new perspective and you can see the next step.

I love this way of achieving my goals.

I believe setting SMART goals is limiting yourself. You can’t know exactly which steps to take when you start. Because you can’t see them yet.

 

Learn kayaking from a beginner or from a pro?

 

Everybody would give the right answer and would say: Of course, a pro. Nobody would trust their life to a beginning instructor.

But…. when it comes to seeking help for your business so many business people turn to consultants or coaches who are self-employed and/or have worked years in the corporate world, got their monthly paycheck and never ran a business of themselves.

They never had to employ or sack staff, never had to invest in property to accommodate the business, never had to work in various countries with various languages and different business partners of their OWN. They did not have sleepless nights because the responsibility weighed so heavily. And I can go on and on.

Why are we so concerned about trusting our life to someone and are we less critical when it comes to trusting our business to someone?

Choosing the right business mentor or coach is a serious matter and should not be the first person you meet. Because often they are out there hunting for you.

Are you too busy to work on your business?

Are you too busy to work on your business?

Believe me, initially, every businesswoman had issues with finding the time to work ON her business.

Omitting the appointments, emails, social media and people you work with, also require attention.

And very often then the people from your private life that you would like to spend a lot of time together will get rid of it and that does not feel right.

Just as it does not feel good that you feel that you are not ahead with your business because your to-do list will only get longer.

And when I’m very honest about it, it happens to me too. It is too easy to give all the issues around you in the day-to-day worries. And for businesswoman that is even more difficult than for men, because men can usually focus better.

Not doing enough with the future of your company or making sure that your business is running so that doing business becomes easier and easy to solve. But because entrepreneurs do not make choices about this or do not know how to deal with this, they just keep going the old way.

Two things play an important role in this.

Your feeling and practice.

And what time is meaningful time.

Your feeling and practice

It does not feel right if you do not work on your business. It does not feel right if you are always too busy.

It does not feel right if you think you are not moving forward.

But where do you set the criteria for whether it goes well or not. Is that your feeling or is that reality.

For example, if I look at last month, I felt that it would not be a good month. That’s why I always felt slightly less good. When I came up with the end of the month; is this really true?

Then I started to count. And what turned out to be financially a good month.

I had also spoken to many customers that I could have helped ahead.

A successful trajectory with a loyal customer.

I also gave 3 workshops on all kinds of themes of entrepreneurship.

I had many successful meetings in Switzerland where I found several sponsors for my business network group there.

What then made me feel like it was going bad?

Because after my idea, I did not have enough time to do everything that I wanted to do.

What a bad indicator is that when it comes to how your company is going.

What time is meaningful time for a businesswoman.

Still freeing up the time to work on your company because it will also deliver time.

Every time I do something, I ask myself, do I do this once or do I have to do this more often?

If I have to do it more often, I spend extra time on it and make it a process.

As a businesswoman I think I’ll outsource it next time. If this is the case, I also work that out for the person who takes over. Then next time it is very easy to outsource it because otherwise you will quickly do it yourself in between.

If I do it the next time myself, I have a checklist, templates or templates ready for myself which makes me go faster this time and it will be a routine job.

Can you consider how effective this can be if you have a larger company?

It really pays the time to work on your company. If you do this systematically and make a sport of how you can make it as simple as possible for you and the people you work with, you will see how much more you can do in a year and how much further your company is.

My customers Karin and Jaap also did this. They have always started to apply systems, work more systematically so that they can scale up much more easily and now get more done.

What are the benefits of Outsourcing for businesswomen?

What are the benefits of Outsourcing for businesswomen?

 

For businesswomen, outsourcing is one of the scariest things to do when they encounter it for the first time.

Businesswomen often feel that they can do best when it concerns their own business.

What a mistake to believe this, I would say. Why would you be the only one who is capable of doing a specific task?

And even when you are the best, you will never be able to grow your business with this kind of work-ethic. Chance are that you will be stressed most of the time and feel the pressure of too much work. A time will come that you cannot take on more clients, which is a waste of potential for you and your business.

You might have to work during your holiday, or you might want to close your business during your vacation and therefore you could lose potential clients. I cannot believe that this is a very attracting for-sight.

 

Why businesswomen Fear of outsourcing?

 

There is also another thing that hinders women to outsource, FEAR. They are afraid that they will lose control. Businesswomen are afraid that clients will be less happy. And guess what, even when this would be the case, you have to accept this, for you to be able to grow your business. Of course, you put time and money in to prevent this from happening.

 

One of my clients who has a large business lets her private clients walk into the office and she believes that her staff does not have all the knowledge she has, to be able to helping these people correctly, so she does this herself. Most of the time this is for spare parts or maintenance. It will cost her 15 to 20 minutes of her time and the average amount spend by the client will be 20,00 euro. It took me a lot of persuasion to let her see that when she continues doing this, she cannot scale up her business to the goals that we have set.

Her time is a lot more valuable than spending 20 minutes for only 20 euros.

What about you? Are you doing the same?

 

How you value your time is a big issue for women. Which is not only about the price you ask but also about where you spend your time on.

My clients feels stressed because it distracts her from her own tasks, and she cannot get everything done that she needs to do.

 

I gave her 2 options,

 

1. Teach your knowledge to some of your co-workers (not only to one, because when this person leaves, you still have the same problem. It makes you and your business vulnerable)

2.  Only have a few opening hours per day or even per week for such kind of questions.

 

And you have to know that we are changing the focus of her business to a different target audience. From less private clients to working with bigger groups. Because it costs the same amount of time and brings in more money. So why keep spending time to private clients who are walking into the office and distract you. Because women will give everything for happy clients. And that is a great treat but not when it stops you from growing. Because when you grow your business you will get more happy clients.

 

The proposals are to complicated I cannot outsource that

 

All of my clients that are in the process of scaling, believe they still have to make the proposals themselves, because they know best how to do this, do it the quickest and every proposal is different. I always argue about this.

When you are scaling, more proposals will have to be made which takes even more of your time.

 

There are always a lot of parts in every proposal that are the same.

You have to capture those parts and standardize them.

Next thing is looking into past proposals for parts that you can re-use.

If you copy and paste all of those things in your standard proposal and take some extra time once, to write a paragraph about everything that your business can offer, it is simply a matter of deleting parts in your proposal. And what’s easier to outsource than that?

Everybody can change the name, the address, the date and delete everything you tell them to do.

 

You can even systemize this. Have one page where you add the things that need to be added. And tick the sections that have to be deleted. You can then add this task to someone else task list. It will cost you only 5 minutes instead of over 1 hour.

 

There are so many things that you can systematize in your business and that is essential when you want to grow.

 

The problem is that most businesswomen don’t see this because they have always been doing it the same way. And you can’t know what you don’t know. When you want to grow your business, to get the right help is key!

Do you know what successful businesswomen do When they take business decisions?

Do you know what successful businesswomen do When they take business decisions?

I am noticing there is a distinction in however businessmen and businesswomen build their selections. I am noticing there is a distinction in however businessmen and businesswomen build their selections. Men will provide a “yes” or a “no” to a straightforward call simply. Usually, girls would like longer. most girls need to create a call once they have the time, or once the time is true for them. a girl usually has a lot of doubts to create a call and wish to possess a lot of info, to be completely certain that she’s going to be creating the correct call. Now, if you are a girl and you scan this, you may most likely suppose, “Of Course”!

I am a girl too, however I typically build fast selections. I usually cannot consider why deciding to take such an extended time. usually after I speak with another girl she is already aware of the selection, however, she did not attempt to, however, before she had a second opinion.

Decision making is hard. each business owner faces Associate in Nursing unsure outcome whenever they create a selections. Now, once decades of running my very own business, I also have to create my very own robust selections, each day. it’s a part of running a business or, shall I say, what keeps you in business.

There is a stronger method of constructing business decisions and keep control for businesswomen?

Unlike few decades, after you might take time to consider it, these days info is driven by LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and alternative social media. If before the social media eruption, it took time for the news to be assimilated and promoted, currently the “news of the hour” to become “old news” in an exceedingly matter of minutes. The narrative modified. Business individuals learn to adapt, unavoidably, in order that they stay up with the pace of business that is far quicker currently then ever before.

What area unit girls telling themselves?

“First I have to resolve such and such issue and so I’ll come back to it”, or 

“I need to debate it with my team” area unit phrases we have a tendency to hear tons. Just once the ladies is deciding and she will take a call. it’s vital for a business person that the team is concerned and is aware of what’s happening. “I am ineffectual of that” is another line I hear. Not continuously aloud however I will hear it between the lines. generally creating quick selections is vital as a result of otherwise, somebody else takes the deal, or momentum get’s lost and circumstances have modified.

Making no call is additionally a call for businesswomen

When you don’t build a call, a call goes to be created for you. Is that about to be the choice for you? Not creating a call in the least is property life take over and provides your power away. it is not a satisfying method or doing business. (At least to not me).

If that’s the method you create your business selections, please rummage around for facilitate. make certain you’ve got a business pal, coach or mentor, WHO you’ll decide after your area unit unsure. they’ll provide you with the support you would like. They have no alternative agenda than your prosperity and serving to you surpass your limiting believes and social acquisition.

When you don’t make a decision, often a decision will make me for you. Will that be the right choice for you? When not making a decision, life takes over. And in those situations your power is tasks away from you. It is not a satisfying method or doing business. (At least not for me). If you know this is you, seek help in making your decisions.

Listen to your Intuition once creating a business call

A woman typically has an excellent gut feeling. She, somehow, knows. Only when she has not learned to concentrate on that inner voice she often decides to ignore it. This inner voice is always a voice that empowers you. It never tells you, that you simply cannot do one thing, that is too young, too old enough, not good enough or adequate enough. If that’s what you hear, it’s not your intuition, it’s your limiting beliefs talking to you. Learn to trust your inner voice or your intuition.
