It’s the month of love, the perfect time to celebrate the success of your own company. Like every other relationship in your life, the connection between you and your business requires nurturing. You can get more joy out of your vocation when you nurture that connection. Like a life partner, you can romance your business and fall in love with it, even if you’ve been at it for many years. Here’s how:
1. Dote on your business
Think back on the early days of new love, when partners dote on each other with tenderness. Silly gifts are exchanged, loving glances pass amid sweet whisperings. Doting on your business looks slightly different, but it has the same effect; it strengthens it. You can dote your business by looking for small ways to improve the everyday hustle. Be on the lookout for new systems to try, new software to implement, new business structures to try out, and new ways to achieve our goals.
2. Have healthy time away from each other
In relationships, a little time away can do a world of good; as the saying goes, “absence makes the heart grow fonder”. It’s not about being away from each other as much as it is about each person maintaining their own identity outside of the relationship. As a business owner, you can nurture your passion for your work by also giving yourself a life away from it. Nurture some hobbies and develop skills that are not connected to your work. You’ll feel refreshed and enjoy a better overall perspective when you’re on the job.
3. Do activities that grow the relationship and the business
If you have a staff team, you appreciate the value of team building. When you’re in a relationship, you understand the importance of spending quality time together. The same principle applies to the relationship between you and your business; you need to do activities that strengthen your interest in the business and fortify its overall growth. For some people, attending leadership courses achieves this. For others, improving their business knowledge or delving deeper into industry-specific research achieves this. Find your link to the business that keeps you motivated and inspired, and nurture that.
4. Take the business out to dinner (and feed it well)
Feeding the business can only mean one thing: finding fresh leads! Financial growth is a powerful motivator, and when sales are pouring in, you’re likely to love your business. What results in new leads? Good marketing campaigns. Take your business out to dinner by cultivating lots of leads and ensuring those leads are converted into sales. Of course, the Maralytics tools are there to help you ensure you stay accountable for your success.
