Every Entrepreneur goes through the roller coaster of achieving triumph in business. There are often times where we even question if it is possible to reach the next level. FEAR NOT we are here to lift your spirits .

Celebrate the small wins

When SquareBall first began we made a promise to each aspect of the business into to a success story. Not saying that everything went well, but we know how to recognize the good from the bad not matter how big or small the win was. Not every idea is going to be a home run. Sometimes you just have to be happy with getting on base.

Go beyond the boundaries

Once the business gets going, it is very easy to get weighed down with every day struggles of running a business. The marketing/advertising strategies, the office culture, client/customer concerns, and many other issues tend to distract from the original reason why it all began. Instead of getting down and questioning the future, find time to generate new ideas like you did when you first started. Even if the ideas are not top notch, just get the creative juices flowing. Don’t forget what got you where you are.

Expect the unexpected

This is simple…Never be caught off guard. Many times we never see the storm coming. That does not stop us from building a safe house. Be mentally prepared for the lows that will come.

Don’t hesitate to milk the cow

As entrepreneurs we love to brand out into new business ventures, promotions, and other High risk high reward (HR2) ideas. We understand and support that thought process…HOWEVER don’t be afraid to use your cash cow as a back up plan. Always have new benefits to your top product/service for when these HR2 ideas don’t work out.

Being an Entrepreneur is one of the most difficult positions in business. There will be some rough patches. BUT In the great words of Winston Churchill, “Never, Never, Never Give up.”

Best of Luck and we are always here to help.

COURAGE Ladies and Gentlemen! Courage is a must have when you are in control of your own destiny. According to the Encarta dictionary Courage is defined as: the ability to face danger,difficulty,uncertainty,or pain without being overcome by fear or being deflected from a chosen course of action. This definition is very uplifting,strong,and sounds like something Mufasa would say. Much like Simba,business owners cannot be afraid to make the tough decisions.

Many business owners (especially small business owners) have perfected the ability to MANAGE the business,keep up with budgets, and work well with their team. That all is great,except where will the business be in the future? As an owner you must manage people yet Run the business.
