5 uncomfortable tasks that will help your business succeed

5 uncomfortable tasks that will help your business succeed

1. Practice public speaking.
You must be comfortable and confident to represent your business in any scenario. Delivering your business and elevator pitch confidently will promote and position the business in the market place.

2. Learn to say no.
When it’s time to say no, avoid phrases such as I don’t think I can or I’m not certain. Saying no to a new commitment honours your existing commitments and gives you the opportunity to successfully fulfill them

3. Start the day early.
Starting the day early gives you enough time to gather your thoughts and prioritise the tasks for the day. Whilst it is not fun being the first one in the office, the benefits far outweigh the early morning start.

4. Look at your services and products, if something is not selling then get rid of it!
You need to be flexible and have enough energy to pivot your business and focus your energy on the products and services that sell.

5. Focus on one task at a time.
Prioritise your day and work through the list. Don’t postpone anything – Do it now!
