    What Do You Know About Business? 

    You might say:”I know what I know and that’s all that I know”. So do you know a lot or a little bit about business? Depending on your level of business knowledge, sometimes you have to branch out and learn a lot more than what you already know. Developing & improving your business know-how or knowledge can benefit you greatly. The more that you know about business and your niche, the more of a competitive advantage you’ll have. There are many ways to be successful in business. But you need staying power, sustained success and it’s all about the knowledge that you have & how you implement what you know.

    So what do you know about business?

    Take advantage of what you do know, use it to plan better, develop new strategies, set new goals etc… For what you don’t know learn more about it such as strategy, planning, marketing ,your niche, business matrix, change, decision making, six sigma, take a training class, learn from other professionals etc…. Research and education is a continuous process in business. Once you gain the knowledge that you need, don’t stop, learn more. The more that you know the more you grow, especially if you implement what you know.

    Take the knowledge that you have and manage it correctly. Make notes, plan and set goals. You could look at it as knowledge management.  The goal of knowledge management is sustained individual and business performance through ongoing learning, unlearning and adaptation. Knowledge can play a crucial role in gaining competitive advantage. Knowledge Management is a branch of management for achieving breakthrough business performance through the synergy of people, processes, and technology. Its focus is on the management of change, uncertainty and complexity.

    Having an elementary or basic business know-how is very important. Once you have that down packed, then you can build off of that and develop a better business. Knowing about the basics can enable you to better plan and manage your business.  The basics can help you to better manage your finances & budgeting, arrange and run meetings and hopefully make good profits. You should at least have a basic understanding of how business works and the basic concepts of different business strategies. For the life of your business you’ll need to continuously educate yourself.The old saying that knowledge is power is so true in today’s business world.
    Your business acumen or knowledge is a concept pertaining to your knowledge and ability to make profitable business decisions. Developing business acumen is fundamental to your business alignment. It’s a basic understanding of how your  business makes money. Business acumen is gained by knowledge and can be gained by reading, studying & doing. It’s not about working harder, it’s about working smarter. By working smarter and using what you know, the world is yours.

      You’d think it would be obvious what business you’re in. If you make drills, you’re in the drills business. If you bake cookies, you’re in the cookie business. Right? Wrong. For more details you can visit my website softwaredevelopmentoutsourcing(dot)org and services-outsourcing(dot)org

    6 Tips For Better Business Planning 

    There is so much that goes into managing and developing a business. It’s all about the plans that you make. Your business plans don’t have to be set in stone. They need to be flexible and strategic. Business plans provide a strategic planning services of Clerical Business Solutionsfoundation for success, growth and longevity. Developing strategic business plans are imperative for the success of your business. In addition to the implementation of those set plans. What are plans without the implementation?

    You can maximize business growth and minimize risk through effective strategic and contingency business planning. Flexible business planning and goal setting is an essential part of business development and ongoing success.

    1. Don’t Just Plan For Today.

    Create plans in a long term view. You should make plans for at least 4-5 yrs from now. What are your plans for the future? Who do you plan to have in charge? Do you plan to grow then sell? Do you plan to utilize outsourcing? Revise your plans as your business grows. If your business doesn’t grow then you still need to revise your plans to improve growth efforts.

    2. Make Clear & Precise Plans.

    Make clear & precise plans for the daily management of your business. They  should be clear to everyone involved. Additions and subtractions to your plans should be made known to all that are involved.

    3. DIY: Do It Yourself.

    Many people take the time out to make business plans themselves. In this case, you can get to know your business better and discover things that you never thought about.

    4. Don’t just stuff your plans in a box to forget about them.

    Set aside some time to review them on a regular basis and make changes.

    5. Don’t just keep your plan to yourself.

    Show your plans to others that you can trust and get beneficial advice on what you’ve created so far.

    6. Involve strategic planning.

    A strategic plan can make for a better business plan. Strategic planning helps you to dig deeper and achieve desired results. It can help you to better determine your S.W.O.T: strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.

    Avoid costly mistakes such as worrying too much about how things will work out and waiting to the last minute. Just jump right in and plan. Set specific goals. Avoid overestimating or underestimating plans. Set targets and figures that you have the means to achieve now. They can be adjusted as you go along to do more or cut back. You can utilize a business plan template to look at but your business plan must be specific & tailored for your business.

    Do You Use Your Business Resources Wisely? 

    Through out the life of your business do you feel like you make the best use of your business resources? It doesn’t matter if you are in or out of a recession. Since we are in what the financial experts call a recession, I’msmall-questioning-face-small-webview pretty sure that it has taught many of us some hard lessons.

    Learning lessons as far as making the best use of all of our resources that are within our reach. Some people wait until the hard times hit before they really buckle down, save and make the best use of what they have or try to leverage the resources of others to help them.

    If you want your business to last for a long time then you need to have a pre-planned action plan, a strategy for success & longevity. That’s where strategic planning comes into play.

    To develop and create growth, the wisest thing we can do is to utilize the resources we already have & build on them . It will take courage and real commitment, and the right tools. Do you have a strategy in place to help make the best use of your financial resources, human resources, physical resources, intangible resources, outside support etc…

    Learn to prepare ahead of time and if you haven’t now is a good time to start because in or out of a recession you should want to have a smooth running operation. Yes, you will have problems and challenges throughout the life of your business but how will you handle them?

    Learn to think things through by asking yourself:

    • Do you have a plan or strategy in place?
    • What are the most important needs of your organization?
    • Do you have strong support for your efforts, internally or externally?
    • What is the best strategy for using internal & external resources?

    It’s a smart business move to leverage the resources of others outside of your business such as a Virtual Assistant or Business Consultant. These types of resources can help you to run a smoother operation. Virtual Assistant Services can help you and your staff to prevent burnout and get more things accomplished within your business. Maintain your own resilience, take care of yourself & don’t burnout!

    Look at your company’s long-term goals,  annual goals and workforce profile. Do your business operations, work programs or training programs support those goals? Take a look at all the internal resources available, and build a network to help you identify external resources. Remember, don’t try to do everything by yourself.

    Are your workers computer-savvy? Is the workforce technology-driven, performance-driven, or a mix?

    It all comes down to how you think and your actions. You must always have an action plan. Also you can create business action plans by learning from the mistakes that you make. This too can help you to make better use of your business resources.

    Become offensive & optimistic in your thinking:  “How do I use my resources in the best possible way?” Don’t become defensive and pessimistic in your thinking: “How can I save on resources?” You may not see it now but there is a huge difference in those two thought processes.  While thinking about saving on resources is good but don’t make that your only option. Think about saving then utilizing them in the best possible way.

    You open the door of possibilities for your company if you could make the best use of your resources instead of wasting them. Companies across the world are making huge cuts across the board now. Are you one of them?

    It would be refreshing if more companies thought about & engaged in their potential for development instead. Most of us have the potential to get better at what we do, but some of us know that the possibilities depend on the way that we perceive our situation as well as our options.

    So now ask yourself: Do I Use My Business Resources Wisely?
