Advice on managing the growth of your business

Obstacle

One of the biggest challenges that I have faced was making decisions related to managing the growth of Soul Sanctuaries. When is the right time? What are the key decisions that need to be made? What direction do I want to go? This is an extremely critical time for any business.

Advice

Simply put, be willing to ask for advice, help and direction from others. There are always others that have been in your exact situation. Seek them out! Look for other businesses that are doing well and talk to them. I utilized LinkedIn Premium as a tool to connect with other business owners using the Inmail feature. I was able to identify successful business leaders within the travel/retreat industry that were willing to offer mentorship support. I shared my plans for the growth of my business with them and asked for their feedback. The result was connections with senior executives that were able to share their insights from a space of direct real world experience in having managed the growth of their own businesses. Reach out!

 

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Have been spending this year getting healthy and a retreat to relax and focus would be wonderful. Crocker
