Tips To Run A More Successful Business - Part Two
By Angelica Rose
Know your boundaries when dealing with clients
Over promising on areas that you are unable to meet or do and overdoing possibly lead to disrespect, a feeling taken advantage of and possibly losing.
Think of everyone you meet as a potential client
Use human relation skills to make good long-term relationships with people you meet and enjoy in both personal life activities and business. This assists in building your customer base, getting referrals and acquiring loyal customers. It is also more fun to have healthy relationships to avoid unnecessary challenges and headaches.
Invest part of your savings in higher paying returns
Invest part of your savings once you acquired a substantial amount for higher returns. Diversify your investment portfolio based on how the market is doing;
For example, research companies that are doing well over a long period of time and show stability and invest in their stocks. Invest in bonds when the market has high interest rates and when you are in a high tax bracket and you want
to defer paying higher taxes. Invest in mutual funds when you want to spread the risk. Don't forget to invest yearly in a retirement plan to have money to live on when you retire.
You don't want to rely on social security alone, especially since it may not be there when you retire.
It takes time, perseverance and patience to achieve goals. You want to stay focused on your vision removing any obstacles as you do current reality checks for progress. Rather than be rigid and narrow in solving challenges and creating new ideas, it is more fun to be creative and stay open minded. Learn from your mistakes to avoid repeating them and to develop personal and professional wisdom.
