Dear Self: A Letter To a Young Guy Starting Out.
Remember that it takes time to build trust and repeat business, but it will be well worth it in the long-term. Give your best efforts day in, day out and your work will eventually pay off with exponential business growth. Treat your business, like a serious job - but with greater enthusiasm! Set hours for yourself and don’t slack off. Allow yourself to be creative, to try new things, but remember to prioritize and stay on task. Remain genuine in all of your dealings with people.
Remember that your customers are human, like yourself, so treat them how you would like to be treated. Practice good business ethics with all of your suppliers and everyone that you deal with, because people can smell a rat a mile off!
Don’t be too concerned about not having a big advertising budget. If you’re constantly delighting your customers, your reputation will soon spread like wildﬁre. Always keep in mind that the most effective form of advertising is word- of-mouth, because customers listen closely to the recommendations of other customers.
Network yourself with like-minded people, that spur each other on.
Don’t expect success to come too early, then you won’t become distracted when things seem to be moving along slowly. Never give up, learn from your mistakes and most of all - remember to have fun!
