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.

Find Potential member

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.

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.

The trick for businesswomen in deciding

Last week I visited a business workshop. I feel it is always necessary to stay up to date with what’s new within the business world. One trainers gift the audience an awfully easy strategy on the way to make a quick business decision. Ask yourself these 3 queries

What is the foremost positive outcome?

What is the worst attainable outcome?

What is the foremost probable outcome?

Three easy questions that may clear your mind and assist you to be centered, declare your doubts and help you make a quick decision. Once you’ve answered these 3 easy questions, then count back from five to one, and decide with no hesitation.

How to make a financial planning for your business?

How to make a financial planning for your business?

60 % of the female business owners do not make a financial planning.

It is therefore not a surprise that 35 % of the female entrepreneurs have less than 25.000 euro turnover. You cannot call that a business!

In 2016 I studied female entrepreneurship because there was so little to be found on the internet about women in business, in my country Holland. I questioned nearly 400 self-employed entrepreneurs and business owners.

Some of the results shocked me. (if you are interested in the total report, you can download it for free here)

https://www.powerfulbusinessacademy.com/e-book/

I remember very well that I was well on my way as a business owner when I made my first financial planning. It was after 15 years that I decided I needed to make one.

So you don’t need to tell me that it is possible to run a business without and my business was making a profit. Although that always was a lucky surprise to me. But I can also tell you how stupid it is not to make one. Only when I started making a financial planning I realized how much it helped me to gain control over my business.

It gave me more confidence, I had a tool which I could monitor. I now felt like a real business owner.

 

 

Why did I not make a financial planning earlier?

 

Maybe you recognize some of my reasons as one of your own?

   In the beginning, I did not even know that as a business owner you were supposed to make a financial planning.

   I had no idea how to do it?

   I postponed it and told myself I had no time and I was making a profit so why bother.

   I did not want to admit to other business owners I did not do it and that I did not know how to do it.

   I felt stupid for not making one. I seemed that all the other business owners I spoke to did make a financial planning.

 

 

The biggest mistake many entrepreneurs make for financial planning for business

 

They outsource their finances, which is totally fine. But this is also the reason why, often, they have no clue how they are doing financially.

I am a firm advocate of outsourcing whatever you are not good at or what you don’t like to do.

But you need to know your numbers.

Usually, a bookkeeper does what you ask them to do. So you need to know what to ask.

 

Most female entrepreneurs

 

   Do not know how to read their annual financial report

   Get their financial report far to late, when the next year is well on their way. Sometimes even as late as November!!

   Do not understand that when they make a profit, how it is possible that they can still have too little money to pay the bills.

   Don’t make a financial planning.

   Have no idea how much their fixed monthly expenses are.

   Don’t know what their turnover was last year if I ask them in January or February.

For me, this is so weird and this needs to change!

Overall women are naturally not very good at finances. Now you cannot be good in everything but finances are an essential parts in the business.

Although I know many women want to argue with me about this. Most of the time these are exactly the women who do not have a thriving business. Often it is easier to say that money is not that important then to have a good look in the mirror and acknowledge that they are being ignorant.

Yes, you need a very good service or product and yes you need to give a lot of value. But money makes doing all of this possible. Your business cannot grow without money and it all starts with knowing your numbers.

Only then you can see which actions you need to take.

For example:

   Investing

   Expanding

   Cutting down on expenses

   More marketing

   More sales

   More staff

   etc.

 

 

Here are the basics of making your first financial planning?

 

   First of all, you need to know the turnover of last year.

   Next, you need to know how much you want to increase your turnover next year.

   You need to know all the expenses you have. The fixed ones, producing expenses and the incidental ones.

   Fixed expenses: expenses you have regardless of producing your product or service.

   rent of office space

   interest

   office supplies

   cars

   depreciation

   machinery that is not producing

   etc.

   Producing expenses: expenses you make to produce your product and/or service

   launching expenses to launch a new product or service

   the making of your product or service

   etc.

   Incidental expenses: expenses that are not regular

   celebration event

   investing in equipment

   etc.

   Next thing you need to know is what are the categories that your expenses will be allocated to. Some examples:

   Marketing

   PR

   Salaries

   Rent

   Internet

   Travel

   Cars

   etc.

 

 

How do you know how much you did spend for each categorie?

 

Most of the time your bookkeeper has done this already without even asking you. You just ask for this overview. This is a very good exercise to do because then you will see immediately how much you spend on each category. And often you can see very easily where you can cut expenses if you need or want to do this.

If you have different products and services you can allocate how much you want to make per product or service. See what it was like last year. Think of which promotions you want to do and then predict how you want it to be for this year.

If you want to grow your business usually this can be done by increasing the marketing and or sales activities. As well as online as offline. If you want to grow substantially you need to allocate more money to salaries, because you will need to employ or hire more staff.

Now you know how much you want to grow and what your all your expenses are.

Your expenses should be less than your turnover. The difference is your profit.

 

 

How do you set a target?

 

Next, you need to look at is your productive months. Every business has month’s that are destined to be better then others. Due to seasonal influences, holidays or other issues.

How many productive month’s do you have. If this is 10, you divide your total turnover by 10 and that will be your monthly target.

So every month you need to make a minimum of this amount to stay on track with your financial planning. This means you need to stay on top of your sales. Good is to check this once a month, but better is to do this every week. If you are behind you know you need to start making some phone-calls, or increase the advertising budget or see what else you can do to get more clients.

You can either allocate the moment that you confirm the sale to your monthly target, or the month that you can send the invoice. That is up to you. I did the last. Especially by the end of the year that is the best way to do it.

 

 

It is easier as you might think

 

All of this might seem like a lot of work. The first time I made my financial planning, took me half a day, so that is not so bad.

And guess what. It became so much easier for me to make money. Every month I knew whether I was on track or not. I felt a lot more relaxed, at ease and in control. Also, I knew when we needed to step up a little more and take some more action.

So start making your financial planning now!

And I think it is needless to say that together with your financial planning you also need to make your year planning for your business.

You have allocated budget now to the various categories. What actions are you going to take to spend this money and by when and with who?

What do women need to know, to grow their business?

What do women need to know, to grow their business?

 

Women have a different way of doing business than men. Why is their way so different?

For example, 66% of women do not make a plan.
And 60% of women do not make a financial budget plan

My name is Tineke Rensen and I am a former sports athlete and a business owner for 28 years. I decided to research the female way of doing business.
Why?
For 22 years I worked, in a niche with only male business owners. Of course I learned to do business the male way. I saw that women used a different style, and I had to conclude that the female way was less successful as the way of my male opponents.

How Women do business

After I sold my first international business I wondered why female-owned businesses, remained so small. I did see the strength of female business owners, but most of the time their businesses remained too small to make any difference in the world.

After a while, I decided to investigate the female way of doing business and I questioned nearly 400 female business owners. About this study, I wrote a thorough report. It is called” How Women do Business”

It is a must-have for every female business owner. And it is free to download. http://powerfulbusinessacademy.com/download-free-report-how-women-do-business/

 

From nature women miss the skills that make men successful in business.

Of course there are women who have a lot of male energy and often they are a lot more successful.

So what are typical male skills that make business owners successful?

 

In general men:

  • Like to compete.
  • Have focus.
  • Are system thinkers and a business can be a system if you manage it well.
  • See more opportunities.
  • Are not afraid to take risks.
  • Are goal oriented.
  • Keep a good overview of the whole process.
  • They like the speed of implementation because they are action oriented.
  • Dare to promote themselves if this helps the business.
  • Say yes before they know how to do it.
  • Like to negotiate.

Apparently, this behavior works, although most women do not like these skills, or don’t know how to do it.

I was surprised to discover that there is a female way of doing business too.

I thought there was only one successful way of doing business. And most books (written by male authors) endorsed my opinion of doing business in a successful way.

What my male opponents often said about female business owners was:

  • Their businesses are too small
  • They do not dare to position themselves very well
  • They do not seem to have faith in their own product or service because they are insecure
  • I cannot level with them in a conversation

And ladies, sorry if I offend you, I was thinking exactly the same. Because I was doing business the male way.

I discovered something shocking about doing business.

We think everybody has equal chances in business, but I strongly disagree.

 

  • The language of men is spoken.
  • Their behavior is accepted.
  • And their way of doing business is common.

Only 1% of the big business deals in the world are going to female-owned businesses.

Women who adopt the male style are accepted and are successful. They often become a business owner like I used to be.  I didn’t think very positively about female business owners in general, because I adopted the male way of thinking, communicating and doing business. This was great when I did business with men. But it did not work with women at all. They did not feel me.And they did not want to see the successful image that I created. They wanted to see the real me.

And guess what?

I had no clue because I did not accept my femininity

Why Women can be very strong business owners

And why their businesses need to grow!

It is only 2 years ago that I discovered what is so strong about female-owned businesses.

  • They hardly ever go bankrupt.
  • Their business ALWAYS delivers (A woman will not say yes if she is not convinced she can deliver).
  • The staff likes to work a lot for female-owned businesses.
  • They don’t always need to have facts, they can trust their gut feeling.
  • They are very creative.
  • For them, the relationship is more important than the money.
  • They are very thorough.
  • They can easily find consensus.Also they are not convinced that their way is the best.

And I hope you agree with me that these kinds of skills are needed very much in the world right now.

What women can learn from men

Women need to adopt more skills that make men-owned business, successful and still remain feminine.

The things we don’t like so much about men in business are exactly those skills that we need to adopt. And we can still do that being a woman.

We can make a year’s plan and take into account our relationships and work on a better service or product at the same time.

Also,We can grow our businesses faster if we brag about ourselves or the business. We think it is bragging, but most of the time it is absolutely true. Women underestimate themselves most of the time.

We have to spend a little more time to understand finances. In general, our brain is not wired to understand this very easily. If we do though, it gives us more control. We can speed up a lot faster if we also focus on numbers and not only on relationships.

We need to have more focus because we are aware of everything that is going on around us. It does not mean we need to act on everything we are aware!

We tend to forget our goals when we get specific or to precise. Timeframes are there to protect ourselves from getting too precise.

It is good to see and feel everything when relationships are concerned but you do not want to do this with your financial targets. This is about numbers!

Balancing business and personal responsibilities can be a big challenge to a business woman to excel in both sides. In order to succeed, she constantly needs to make choices. Because women feel guilty very easily this is not easy to do. Actually, she cannot make the right decision because she always loses at the other area of ​​her life.

Balancing Responsibilities

A business woman is not only a career woman – she is also a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother and a friend. Responsibilities in between career and personal life can be a success in both ways. Running a business and taking care of a family needs both a lot or time and effort. Without proper support and understanding, it can lead to feeling overwhelmed, guilty and frustration. So she may be successful in her business career than she feels she lacks in her family commitments or it can be the other way around.

What is the Ultimate Solution?

It may seem impossible but there is a way to have the best of both worlds. A business woman can also be successful in her family life. In order to make this happen, some of the ultimate solutions are:

This way, there will be no forgotten appointments, disappointments, and cramming.
  • Prioritize – being able to manage your time is one thing, but to being able to know your priorities will make life easier. This is useful to situations like choosing between attending your child’s recital and a business meeting. Understanding the importance of each priority can make decision making much faster. For example, if possible, moving the time and place of the meeting to be able accommodate the recital, then you have the best of both worlds

Here is more

  • Goal – know your goal. It is best to have a goal in every aspect of our life. Goals can be a reminder of why you are doing this and where you are heading. It gives focus and focus makes it a lot easier to prioritize again.
  • Mindset- If you believe you cannot have others taking care of your child (ren) you make it very difficult for yourself. What believes are hindering you and therefor create your guilty feelings?

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. Having too many appointments, e-mails, social media and trying to give attention to the people you work with, often consumes most of your time. And very often the people that you would like to spend most of the time with, your family and friends, you don’t see them as much as you want. And that does not feel right. Just as it does not feel right that you don’t seem to go a lot faster ahead with your business because of your To-do list will only seem to get longer. And when I’m very honest about it, this sometimes happens to me too.

It is too easy to give in to all the issues around you in the day-to-day routine and worries. And for businesswomen that is even more difficult than for men, because men can usually focus better. Not working towards the future of your business or making sure that your business is running smoothly so that things become easy does not feel good. Many businesswomen don’t choose to work towards the future and run their business as a system, because often they don’t know how to and that is why they keep on doing it the way they are used to.

 

As a businesswoman two things play an important role in changing this.

Your feeling and the daily reality And what time is meaningful and useful time for your business?

 

Your feeling and daily reality

  • 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 what criteria do you have if your business is doing well or not? Is that your feeling or is that reality? For example, if I look at last month, I felt that it was not a good month. That’s why I did not feel good about the results. Inwardly my results were measured by what I had accomplished. When I came up towards the end of the month; I asked myself the question: this really true? Then I started to count. And what turned out:

  • Financially it was a great month.
  • I had also spoken to many customers that I helped ahead.
  • A coaching program with a nice and loyal customer was successfully completed.
  • 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 of my idea, that I did not have enough time to do everything that I wanted to do. What a bad indicator is when it comes to how well your business is going.

 

What time is meaningful time for a businesswoman?

As a businesswoman scheduling time to work on your business because this will also give you extra time. Every time I do a task, 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 into a process.

I think can I outsource this the next time. If the answer is yes, I make a procedure for it. I make an action plan, I describe the various steps. I sometimes even record it with video on my laptop screen whilst I am actually doing the task. All of this I do, because the next time when this task comes up again, I can outsource it very easily. And then it saves me a lot of time. Had I not spent the time to make it into a task for someone else I probably would have done it myself again, because I know I can do it faster than anyone else.

And if I do decide to not outsource it my task is easy because; I have a checklist, or templates ready for myself, making me go faster this time and now it will be a routine job.

Just think for a moment how much time this can save you as a businesswoman especially if you have a larger company?

You only have bite-sized chunks and yet you can continue to deliver custom work to your customer. If they ask that from you or if you want to deliver custom work.

Potential Client for a businesswoman

For example, an offer to a new potential client is no longer something that you have to recreate and each time, but a list where you simply delete all options that are not taken. It really pays the time to work on your business. If you do this systematically and make a sport of it on 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 will be.

My customers Karin and Jaap also worked ON their business under my guidance and coaching. They have a lot of systems in their business now which makes work so much easier for them. And therefore they can scale up so much easier because they have more time, more KPI’s and more overview on well they are doing.
