Every business, during its life, hits plateaus. It is usually a sign of capacity, comfort, or creativity. Ask yourself these questions: Are your and your staff (internal or outsourced) at maximum capacity and can no longer handle more work? Are you comfortable with your income or sales and have become complacent? Have you lost the creativity that launched you in the first place and don’t feel driven to change?
You are not alone. Every business owner – regardless of whether you are a one-man/one-woman show, a partnership, or a business with employees – faces these dilemmas from time to time. Think of your first major plateau as Base Camp. You have achieved success and your business is doing well. But if stay at base camp and never push on to propel yourself higher, there is no choice but to go down.
Today’s LinkedIn Lady Show is all about recognizing your business plateau and putting a plan in place to break through your own barriers to move from where you are to where you want to be.
