“Watching everything unfold.”

putting together ideas

When creating your business, we all have these ideas of how I business will operate. We think about the customers and the money it can potentially make, but we don’t think about something more important. We are not thinking about putting together a comprehensive business plan. A business plan will give you more focus when trying to succeed. With this plan you are able to direct your projected path. But notice I said projected path. There is no guarantee that your business will perform well even with a plan. As a matter of fact you still might fail with the people who don’t have one. But it’s not about lumping yourself in with other people. It’s about your own success in life.


You want to finance your business, but don’t have the money. Good luck trying to procure financing without the use of a business plan. Because with the plan, people are going to want to see where the money is going that you will be raising for your business. And that plan shows a clear breakdown for the financing of a business. If I give you money, how will I get my money back on the investment. If you are not promising any return on your investment then you are not going to receive a payment to start your business. Simply because now people don’t see it as a viable stream of revenue.

anticipation of the happening

Remember I said prior that a business plan gives you the insight of what might take place; a projected course. But when things happen and you have taken all the considerations for your business, you know how to deal if problems arise. You shouldn’t be thinking about all the money you can make without thinking about all the problems that can take place. What is the saying again, “Everything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” “Those who fail to plan, plan to fail.” Know what you’re getting in to, even if you don’t ever come in contact with the issues. Better to cross that bridge even though it’s there, to not, and get to the bridge and can’t cross because you didn’t take action early on.

“They are right when they’re right.”

business etiquette

When you open a business no matter what it is, there is a phrase that stands. And that phrase is that, “the customer is always right.” And you should remember that for as long as you are in business. But there are times where it doesn’t matter what the customer says, you should not accept their service. And that is tough when you and the customer know that the customer is right. Yet there are the times when people are so disrespectful they must go.

others who pay

The reason at times that the customer is wrong and you have to lose their business is because you have to think about the others who patronize your business. No one wants to lose customers, but when you are at risk of losing more then you have to, think about that as well. Some customers may want you to get rid of this person and are more irritated that you are catering to their bad behavior. So what do you do now, lose one or five people. Sometimes you have to sacrifice the one for the overall picture. Because you’re not going to be able to satisfy everyone.

your business your rules

You don’t have to care really what others think about your business if you feel this way. Hell, if you want to run it into the ground it’s your choice to do so. There is nothing in the human rule book that says you have to care about the customers that much. It’s something people say to make the customer feel welcome and make money. But it should not be used as something to dangle over your head either. So know when to care and when not to care.
