If I just keep posting on Instagram, I'll get better and better. I'll grow my business and I'll become so successful. Its not happened yet but I'll just keep going until it does. Yes you do need to keep posting and keep improving but you also need something else too. You need to start implementing some critical business concepts to allow for the growth you're looking for. How many customers do you get now from social media? If you were to double the number of followers, how many sales would you get then? Is that the amount you're heading for? Is that the dream? Chances are that no, that's not your dream figure. Now consider adding something magical (that requires no time) ... Give your customers the easy opportunity to buy more from you. Add an online elegant touch that your competitors just aren't doing. Have an online review system in place that not only let's your most appreciative customers review you easily but allows you to deal with any negative reviews before the get aired online. It's time to stand out and do things properly. Do you have any of these in place?
What's your biggest fear when running your own business? My personal fear is letting my kids down. They didn't know me when I had a good career and got dressed up nice in the mornings and off to get the tube. I don't want them to say anymore, 'ask dad, mum won't have the money for that' I asked my family and friends the same question this morning. Failure was the word that came back to me. Why? 'I'm scared of failing and giving up' 'I was scared that we'd all have to live in that council house for the rest of our lives' 'I was scared mum and I would end up on council care' These answers are terrifying. It makes me feel so unbelievably proud of everyone running their own business. What's your biggest fear?

#wheresthesnow Got my logs, candles and kindling... so where's the snow? ⛄❄️ On a different note, whenever Facebook get mentioned in the news for un-toward behaviour it's always a stark reminder that any of my followers on that platform are owned by FB and not me. That's 5,418 people who've chosen to follow my business who I have no way of contacting other than through Facebook. I literally remember MySpace like it was yesterday. Did you know anyone that wasn't on that platform? Now? All gone 🧐☠️ Hmmm 😕🙄 Get them in your own list! X
