In early years, there are only a number of businesses set up in the neighborhood that you can count it with your hands, especially in New York. Then, in the later years till today, a whole wide of competitors are surrounding the neighborhood. Unless, you step up, you will be able to stand above them. As years go by, we need to get the new generations to buy or purchase our products or services. What do you think are the reasons why businesses fail? Here are some:
Lack of passion
One sample is a restaurant owner. When he put up his dream restaurant, on the first day, business was booming with happy customers. But, years later, the number of customers dwindled. The comments in social media are full of unsatisfying experiences of the customer such as cold food or worst service. This sometimes happen when the restaurant owner no longer cares or has lost the passion that drives him. This is triggered when personal problems come and go.
Unwilling to innovate
There are others who don’t accept change or not willing to change at all. To attract the new generation, one must be open to the customers’ demands. When old habits are still done, then there are tendencies that services and process will be slower than before. Innovativeness is not expanding yesterday’s knowledge but to create new ways from different perspectives and push through the human’s potentials.
When someone can’t do the books, then you can’t tell how much you gain and how much you lost. In 2015, 49% of business people say that they worry a huge deal of financial issues. If you don’t cover your business the right way, then your business will fall under your nose.
If you can’t manage your staff and flow, then why else will it succeed? Leadership is crucial to any part. If your people don’t share the same goal as you, then you can’t carry your business forward. Have the right people to delegate the responsibilities to. Know who you should trust and communicate more.
You must have a plan for your customers, employees and business activities. Being ready is better than being too late. At this time, you need to consider every possibility to face. If you can’t, then look form help. It’s not wrong to seek help from professionals or experts.
History maybe great and all but it’s time to move forward for a better tomorrow.
