As the marketplace gyrates under the pressure of severe change, it forces most everyone to re-evaluate or at the very least discover if they have what it takes to compete—the competitive edge, if you will.
Looked on favorably, economic uncertainty provides legitimate cause for many of us to rethink our capabilities, as well as our overall place in the business world. Oftentimes, this process requires careful self-assessment and considerable personal re-inventory, with special regard for what is necessary in order for us to succeed and prosper.
A new and rapidly changing economic climate manifests a newly organized and often very unfamiliar arena in which business professionals and entrepreneurs must learn to operate and to which they must adapt. This is the new reality.
And while this new arena in which we find ourselves can seem daunting, it also presents us with tremendous personal and business opportunity.
The current state of economic flux creates changes to be sure. But as this new phenomenon continues to unfold, it also offers each of us the worthy challenge of identifying and then grabbing ahold of opportunities that others may be unaware of and that are potentially quite profitable.
Uneasy market dynamics are cause for many of us to ask ourselves this first most important question: How do I build a business earmarked for assured growth and make it a sustainable profit center given the core skills that I have?
Finding an intelligent answer then may prompt a significant degree of personal evaluation, starting with this level of challenging inquiry: How do I establish myself in an increasingly competitive marketplace with any degree of recognition? Do I have the impressive ability to learn, replicate and gain traction quickly in whatever situation I choose?
Overcoming what are oftentimes prohibitive barriers to entry in a certain field or location is never easy. However, there is a relatively simple remedy…
Align yourself with a business opportunity, distributorship, licensee opportunity or franchise that is a leader in the field, one that has the learned makings of a talent pipeline in place and with a vision that matches your own skills, goals and aspirations.
In selecting the right opportunity, it’s also important to examine its flexibility and capabilities with regard to the optimization of resources across regions as well as within your local marketplace.
Moreover, as a smart business operative seeking to plant your own flag of expertise, so to speak, you must also determine how you can add perceived value to anything that you do and far beyond that of your competition. Here, the strategic imperative is to have an unmatched level of scholarship that is both germane to your field and allows you such professional leverage that you essentially have no competition.
Where to begin?
Place these five arrows in your business quiver and your success will be virtually assured:
1. Utilize a repeatable growth model to accelerate into developing markets.
2. Define some proprietary and winning strategies that you can brand as your own and practice without reservation.
3. Develop a 360-degree panoramic view of your business surroundings and be able to recognize adjacent opportunities that allow you to build a marketing force.
4. Build an internal personal culture of continuous education for yourself. Embrace a paradigm whereby you vow to read and study 30 minutes a day about your chosen business/industry. The result of this relentless exercise will be that any uncertainty or apprehension that you held about your expertise will be driven down over time and eventually eliminated.
5. Imagine that in five years, Time magazine is going to name you Man or Woman of the Year. Now, get out there and create the person to match that cover story!
Most people will have a degree of difficulty in being a faithful adherent to establishing the necessary capabilities in a challenging, complex and tumultuous business landscape. However, it is a worthwhile endeavor, one that should not be abandoned too readily. After all, some of the most successful companies that dot our American landscape, as well as the people that lead them, were born of the wildly gyrating vortex of a depressed business cycle.
You can join their ranks by adopting the five behaviors mentioned above and integrating them in a manner that supports your personal business skeleton. Doing so, we believe, will ultimately afford you the ability to cast as dominant a business footprint as you desire.
