Running a small business in today’s rapidly changing marketplace takes skill, determination, and the ability to adapt to new challenges.  Here are 10 tips for any business that wants to succeed.

1Keep Score: It’s amazing how few small businesses have any idea of the daily, weekly, and monthly numbers and financial trends in the organization. Spend time getting to know your business inside and out.

2. Set Realistic Goals: Goal setting is an essential part of running a small business. Set obtainable goals and when reached set the bar a little higher for the next one.

3. Use Marketing Wisely: It’s easy to waste money on ineffective marketing. Learn how to use your marketing dollar and resources to improve your small business.

4. Excel At Your Business Presentations: A powerful business presentation can help improve your small business.  Be relatable but knowledgeable whenever presenting your businesses persona.

5. Monitor Trends in Business: No business operates in a vacuum. Stay current on events and issues that relate to your business.

6. Sharpen Selling Skills: No matter what you’re selling don’t forget to focus on sales improvement.

7. Find Your Niche: Every industry has its own way of doing things that work best for them. Don’t re-invent the wheel.  If it’s working use it!

8. Motivate Your Staff: Motivated staff members can bring huge improvements in business. Learn what motivates people and capitalize on it.

9. Know Your Limits: Every successful small business owner has a pretty clear idea of their limitations. Knowing your own business personality can help you manage your resources and find help in areas of weakness.

10. Take a Break: Running a small business is hard work. Sometimes the best way to improve your business and recapture your passion is to take time away from the office.
