Always Room At The Top

It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive, but those who can best manage change.

~ Charles Darwin

You might be surprised to learn that many familiar businesses started out doing something totally different from what makes them household names today.

For example, have you heard of Fusajiro Yamauchi?  Back in 1889 this Japanese entrepreneur was in the business of manufacturing quality playing cards. At the time, his marketing options were relatively limited – he couldn’t rely on a large email list or social media following to grow his small operation. It was passion for his product that carried him through the usual ups and downs of business ownership.  Eventually his playing card company, Nintendo, began to offer slightly more advanced gaming options – and the rest, as they say, is history.

And did you know that Samsung Sanghoe shipped dried Korean fish, vegetable and their own brand of noodles to customers in Beijing, before changing course and expanding into consumer electronics?

Flexibility and perseverance are critical elements of business success.  After all most of us don’t spend our lives doing the first job or running the first business we ever had…unless you’ve made a career out of that corner lemonade stand ;-)

Opportunity is everywhere, but it’s easy to miss if we’re bogged down in the status quo and going about business as usual.  This is one reason why the most successful people in any field choose to work with a coach.  Effective coaching can help you recognize your blind spots, keep you accountable to your commitments, encourage you when you’re dealing with challenges, and celebrate your victories and achievements with you.  

The hardest battle you’ll ever have to fight is between who you are now and who you want to be.  Fortunately it’s one you don’t need to fight alone.  If you’re facing a career change, starting a new business or looking to uplevel the one you have, consider enrolling in a coaching program as soon as you’re ready to get going.  Options exist for all interests, learning styles and budgets, including workshops, online courses, group programs and masterminds, as well as personalized individual attention.

Every truly successful entrepreneur understands the importance of investing precious time and money wisely. Choosing to invest in yourself and your success first is one of the wisest business decisions you’ll ever make.
