3 Things That You Must Do As You Grow or Start-up Your Business

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 Child Care Business in the near future? Are you thinking about starting a Child Care Business?

If so, I want to share with you three steps that you must take, in order to develop a growth mindset:

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. You must 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,

5 Easy Ways to Market Your Child Care Business Expansion or Start-up!

Deciding to expand your child care business is a big step and it can be a very scary step. Also, I want you to know that it is vital that you have a marketing plan, so that your Expansion is a Success!

I remember when I opened my first child care center back in 2003. I opened with one student and I believe that was due to me not having a marketing plan.

When I expanded my center 12 years later, I had a marketing plan, more marketing knowledge and I opened my second center with over 30 new enrollments!

Within 60 days of my second expansion, we were at 50% capacity and I want to give most of the credit to my Marketing Plan!!

Today I want to share some of my expansion and start-up Marketing secrets with you!

  1. Use the power of social media. Share updates about your expansion online 2-3 days a week.
  2. Post the expansion on your website. This includes posting photos of the building and classroom space. (share your Journey with the world)
  3. Once you have secured a lease on the building. Display a Coming soon banner outside the building. (Vista print has great banners).Be sure the banner includes your Business Phone number and website.
  4. Plan a open house to invite the community to stop by to see the facility and enroll their children.
  5. Get hundreds of flyers made and drop off at surrounding businesses.

I wish you much Success and I welcome your expansion questions or comments below!
