It always seems impossible, until it is done. ~Nelson Mandela

 

In 2013, I declared that 2014 would be the year that I would grow my Business. In fact, the opportunity to expand came to me in August 2014.

When the opportunity to expand presented itself  to me, I was very hesitant to look at the building. However, I knew that if I did not go look at the building; I just might miss my opportunity.

In a previous blog post, I shared with you that I signed the lease to my new location on October 1, 2014. Moreover, twenty-two days into the expansion I realized this: If I want to take my business to another level, I must do the following:

  • Work on my mindset
  • Have laser like focus
  •  Change my words

Do you desire to grow your Business someday? Thinking about starting a Child Care Business? If so, I want to share with you why I think the three tips mentioned above are vital to your Business Growth or Start-up process.

 

1.Work on Your Mindset. Your mindset will either help or hinder your Business Success. In fact, your mindset has brought you to this point in your Business. So, if you want to do something different or bigger; you must think on a different level.

How do you get a different mindset? Read personal development books, attend Business seminars, hang around people who think bigger than you, watch personal development or Business Success videos on YouTube. Your Business will only rise to the level of your mindset. It’s time to think on a different level!!

2.Have laser like Focus. As you are growing your Business, there will be distractions and it is vital that you plan your time effectively. You can plan your day effectively by creating a daily or weekly to do list for your Business Growth or Start-up.

If you do not plan your time well; you will waste time and have many unproductive days. As of September 1, 2014, I created a  90-day expansion plan and I have very little time to waste. So every day, I focus on 3 top priorities until the tasks are complete.

3.Change Your Words. God has created us all with the power to shape our lives with our words. I challenge you to choose your words carefully as you grow or start-up your Business. I have seen the positive and the negative effects from the words that I have spoken out of my mouth. That is why, I challenge you to speak words of growth, increase and blessings over your Business.

If you feel the need to complain, sing a song or cover your mouth. Negative words will only hinder your Business Growth or Start-up process. Whatever you want to see manifest in your Business, that is what you want to speak out of your mouth.

Much Success to you and I look forward to reading your thoughts and comments below,

Before you have another Fundraiser, I want to challenge you to really think about the purpose of your next fundraiser. In fact, your purpose of your fundraiser will inspire parents to help you raise the funds that you need.

Two weeks prior to writing this blog post, I decided to have a fundraiser to help pay for infant-toddler & School-age  equipment for my new location. The parents are really excited to help raise funds for our expansion.

Moreover, many of the parents were reporting to me on a daily basis about their fundraising efforts and after talking with just three parents (several days) before writing this post; I knew that this fundraiser would be my biggest Fundraiser ever!

Furthermore, one of my parents told me that she had already started on a second fundraiser sheet, because she believes that the Fundraiser was for a good cause!

So, don’t just have another fundraiser; have a fundraiser with a purpose and a good cause in mind.

Ideas for having a Fundraiser with a Purpose:

1. Expansion

2. Making- over Your playground

3. Buying Computers for your Preschoolers

4. To Make- over Your Daycare

5. Help a family of a Sick Child

Happy Fundraising!
