Have you ever used the excuse of “not having enough time” for not doing something that was important to you? I bet you have.
I recently asked a bunch of business owners: “What is one thing that you want to improve on in your business?” The vast majority of the people who responded said that they wanted to get better at selling.
Even the word selling makes some business owners cringe. If I told you that you needed to go out and sell x amount of dollars for your business today, how does that make you feel?
One of the hardest decisions business owners make is knowing when to hire help; the second is knowing when to let the wrong help go.
Most businesses start out with you, the business owner, doing everything. If you’re good at what you do and your marketing efforts are successful, eventually you will need to add some type of a support system so you can focus on the most important activities that only you can do.
When I was in Asheville speaking at the Medipreneur conference, I stood in front of a room full of pharmacy professionals and made a bold prediction. I predicted the Amazonageddon of pharmacy.
I predicted that one day Amazon would be responsible for consumer fulfillment of prescription drugs and painted a picture of going to your doctor, having your prescription uploaded via a mobile app, and then delivered to your home within hours. No more needing to go to your local pharmacy.
