To run a business, there are many aspects that we need to prepare. Here are five habits entrepreneurs should be noted that the pace of business can be a maximum, according to Melinda Emerson “SmallBizLady”, a leading business expert and speaker of the US.
Come 15 minutes early if there is a business meeting
Come on time means “late”. Hour break before the event is the most appropriate time to seek new acquaintances for business. Once the show begins, you can only network with eight or nine other people at your table.
Do not force people who can not say YES
Make it as a friend. Often, we see “gatekeeper” that could make it harder to meet with decision makers. They could be from security guards, receptionists, secretaries, or mid-level managers. If confront them, not to take action that shows disrespect to him. Therefore, it has been their job to filter the guests that will meet their boss.
For that, make sure you have a lot of contacts that could pave the way to meet the decision makers. If possible, make them as a friend. Create an atmosphere familiar with employees at various layers in a company which will be a partner or we shoot our clients. If we can do it, surely they will not hesitate to help us, even giving the information we need to facilitate our business deal step.
Never start work before their signature business contract
As a small business owner, sometimes we feel very excited when a client told me that he would use the services or buy our goods. As a result, without knowing it, so spirits, we went to work before the work order which could be a reference according to the value of the contract.
Look for people who “reserve” that can be obtained to help businesses
We must realize that the best we someday certainly left us with a variety of reasons. Of independent want to get another job that provides a higher remuneration. For that, try to always find and prepare other HR can roughly and qualified to be a substitute for people mainstay in our business.
Know exactly how much profit can be made from any business contract
Therefore, we must know exactly how much money we make from every aspect that appears in the contract. There are times when we have to spend extra before getting paid from contract work entrusted to us. However, as much as possible, lest we eventually bail so that it does not interfere with cash flow. Make sure that you also really detailed count to count as labor costs, administrative costs, even to transport to run a business. With details that you have prepared, then there are many aspects that we can count so it really could determine the level of benefits that can be obtained.
