If you had been part of the Klondike gold rush but had restricted your searches to one-ounce nuggets, you would likely have been on the bread line in a matter of weeks.
Successful prospectors would have filtered out, and collected grains of gold as well as larger nuggets.
Ideas are the source of inspiration for all businesses. New ideas may make the difference between success and failure. Using the Klondike analogy, they are the nuggets that drive innovation and success.
Which is why seeking out new ideas is one of the key elements of business success.
Fortunately, there is an abundance of material to sift through:
- your Inbox for example;
- other experienced entrepreneurs that may no longer be competitors, but would be a willing mentor; or
- a professional adviser.
A few comments.
Your inbox is the closest analogy to a prospecting pan. It contains a lot of rubbish but may contain one or two, new ideas a month that will have a positive effect on your business.
A business mentor will be someone you trust who is willing to share their acquired wisdom for your benefit.
And last, but very definitely not least, is your professional adviser. Forgive us blowing out own trumpet but we have worked with numerous business and have insights into many of the problems and opportunities that can hinder and help promote the success of your endeavours.
Finally, don’t forget that it is what you don’t know that you don’t know that is the nugget that may further your goals. Please call, we are here to help.
