5 Steps To Making Over Your Business

business makeover(Article Excerpt from the 2014 Child Care Business Teleseminar makeover Kit)

As a busy Business Woman, I love to get makeovers and this includes: wardrobe makeovers, hairstyle make overs and yes even a facial makeover.

It feels great to get a makeover and one thing that I love about makeovers is the simple fact that when you get a makeover, you Feel Great!
So with that in mind, I have a question for you? Are you ready to makeover your Business? Are you ready to experience what it feels like to Makeover you?
I’m not just talking about buying new office equipment or painting your office walls; I’m talking about transforming you as the Business owner!
I believe that when you makeover yourself, you make over the Business.

So let’s take a look at 5 easy ways to make- over your Business:
1. Take some time to reflect on the practices that are no longer working for you and stop doing them right away. In fact, if your practices are not getting you any results, it’s time to do something different. Step 2 will lead you to some new practices.
2. Buy some new business books! I recommend that you read 12 books a year or 1 book a month. Think about what you need to improve in your Business and increase your knowledge on that subject. Need some ideas: I recommend that you buy books on the following subjects: Leadership, marketing or branding and personal development. Moreover, be sure to pick books that are written by successful business owners.
3. Plan to attend a Business Conference. It will give you some new insight and fresh revelation. In the spring of 2013 I attended a Chick Fila Leadercast and it was Amazing! In fact, at the conference; I discovered that I was a hoarder and I needed to keep things simple in my Business!
4. Makeover You! Get some new clothes and get a new hairstyle. When you look great, people are naturally drawn to you and you will also feel great.
5. Work on your brand! In fact, how are you showing up to your customers on-line and off line? Take a look at your social media presence; do you need a brand over haul? Your brand is everything that you do in Business, so choose your social media statuses carefully; makeover your website; update your marketing materials, get new uniforms for your employees, update your business sign or business cards.

Whatever you do, makeover your brand. A fresh brand makeover will attract new customers and cause others to want to connect with you.

Raise The Standard For Your Child Care Business in 2016

I was recently watching a video by motivational speaker and Success Coach, Anthony Robbins. Mr. Robbins was talking about 10 top ways to Success.

Mr. Robbins top secret was this Principle: Raise the Standard!  In fact, Mr. Robbins said this: “If you want to change your life, you have got to raise your standards!”

So with that tip in mind, I have a question to ask you? When was the last time you raised the standards in your Child Care Business?

The standards I decided to Raise

In January 2016, I decided to increase my pay scale by $1.00 for my Lead Teachers. Then I also required that all of my Lead Teachers become members of NAEYC.

I believe that, higher wages attracts the best teachers and becoming members of Naeyc will expose my teachers to cutting edge information and empower them to implement quality practices in my classrooms!

Please allow me to give you a few more examples:

  1. Consider taking the quality of your program to another level by adding new early childhood books to your resource library.
  2. Require that you or your teachers challenge the children more in 2016.
  3. Change the quality of the forms that you send home to parents. (sending home poor copies is a bad reflection of your brand)
  4. Raise the educational requirements of your staff and increase the starting salary of your staff.

I think you get the point! Raise your standards, change your Business! Furthermore, if you do something different, you will get different results.

I want to hear from you. Has this blog post inspired you to raise your standards? If so what standards will you raise this year?

To your success,

Shiketa Morgan
