Being an entrepreneur and business owner shows that your personality is creative and driven. The obvious progression for any company is growing and expanding but you can’t just grow and expand without reason.
There are as many reasons for growth as there are people but are your incentives coming from the right place?
If you want to increase market share, build your family legacy, sign on with major clients, or attract good talent you have every right to build. What’s more important than that goal is your passion for it. Many people get lost in the hurricane of success and often times don’t give themselves the time to reflect and really find out what they want.
Growing your business is more than just increasing sales and pleasing investors. These milestones aren’t worth much if your heart isn’t in it. Stop for a second and think about where you want to go and how you’re going to achieve that destination. Having impactful team meetings that incorporate some sort of brainstorming so everyone’s vision is headed in a similar direction. Sympathize with your loved ones, maybe they want to see more of you.
Success is blinding and sometimes growing it for the sake of a dollar isn’t fulfilling enough. You’re more than capable of reaching your goals but don’t forget the other pillars of life. Work hard but not as the cost of your dreams.
