Growing your business by saying no?

Growing your business by saying no?

How to say noA common theme of coaching sessions with small business owners is about handling overwhelm. ‘I am so busy I don’t have time to do the things I know I should, so how do I know what new things to do and what not to do?’

I came across this simple quote today. What a great inspiration.

What if all the new opportunities that came your way you assessed using this simple quote. If not ‘Hell yeah’ (or to be a bit more British ‘Oh wow, yes please!’) then calmly say no.

Can your business really grow well if you say yes to every new opportunity? By well I mean sustainably, making sure that you are not spread too thinly, making sure you can continue to give great customer service and focus. On a business and personal level, keeping this balance right is vital.

I am going to apply this simple assessment to everything I do today.

Let’s see how it goes!
