Want to be a Better Business Owner? Here’s How.

As a business owner, there’s so much you feel like you need to know, read up on, become expert at.

But think about that for a moment.

Why task yourself to read it all, when I’ll do that for you.

Without further delay, my tailored list to help you step into the next level business owner that’s inside of you, whether you get tripped up with organizing your thoughts or aren’t sure how to handle a disgruntled client.

  • I gush about planning on paper all of the time, but if you prefer your plans in digital form, check out MindMeister. Their tagline – “Visualize your thoughts.” Enough said. Take a look at how the app can help you here.
  • If you’re looking for help improving your copywriting, Ramit Sethi and the folks at GrowthLab have compiled one of the most useful and comprehensive (without being overwhelming) lists with tips to better your writing. Check them all out right here.
  • Most of us have some level of angst when it comes to attending a networking event. There’s many what-ifs – what if no one talks to me? what if I say the wrong thing? what if I don’t know what to say at all? Vanessa Van Edwards and the team at Science of People recently posted a super detailed article, in conjunction with the folks at Joyable, with practical tips for combatting social anxiety (yes – it’s a real thing!). Read about it here.
  • Hate it when a client is less than thrilled by your service and tells you so? Yep, it’s an uncomfortable part of business, but it doesn’t need to be the worst. Namecheap tells you why complaining customers can be great for your business. Find out why here.
  • Do you have a habit of making mountains out of molehills when something doesn’t go as you planned? You aren’t alone. We’re on our own worst critics, usually thinking it was us that caused that one thing to go “horribly” wrong. Seth Godin has a fantastic idea for reducing the charge around mess-ups. Read up on his catastrophe journal idea here.

Use this short list to help you be a better planner, writer, networker, business owner and human.
