Do You Work On Business Or You Are Just In Business?

work on business

Starting a business is easy, but driving it to success is very demanding. Everyone wants to start a business. Each day brings into the business world new businesses. As more new small businesses crop up, more competition is felt. I get impressed by seeing more new companies starting up. But when you consider the number of those who remain in business after five years, you get worried.

Surprisingly, even those who remain in business risk collapsing with time. Why? It’s because they don’t work on business. It’s one of the reasons I discovered that leads to the collapse of many companies. Some people find themselves in business. They do not take any trouble to work on their businesses.

A person who is just in business wakes up in the morning, opens up his store and waits for customers to come. Day one, he gets three customers. The following day, he gets only two. The third day, he doesn’t get any customer, but he keeps on doing the same. He wakes up very early in the morning to sit in his store and wait for the customers. If you run your business like that, then you do not have any plan to work on the business, and you are doomed to fail. Believe me or not, you will not succeed.

Tips To Work On Business Revealed

For you to succeed, you need to learn to see your business in a mirror. Take yourself to be a customer. Observe it from a distance to see what else you can do to make it better. Ask yourself what you can do to get new customers, to retain old customers, to strengthen your good practices and to improve your services. If you do that, then you are trying to work on your business to move it to greater heights. Is that what you are doing?

Most new business people don’t work on business. After starting a business, they perform the obvious business tasks. They wait for the business to come to them. Unfortunately, things can never work out by themselves. Success in any business requires you to spend your time thinking and looking for new strategies. You can never succeed in an industry where you do not commit yourself to do something every day. You must spend your time everyday marketing to get new customers, communicating with your existing customers and improving your products and services. Do you do that?

Let me remind you that you will never reap where you have not sown. That’s the natural way of doing things. For you to benefit from your business, you need to spend valuable time committing yourself to work on it. You need to invest in your business by getting new knowledge, marketing, and improving your products and services.


As I conclude, it’s essential to learn from the beginning that for you to succeed in any business, you need to spend your time and other resources working on your business. Build it bit by bit. Think about it day after day. Market it. Get new customers. Work on retaining your existing customers. Get new knowledge and skills to improve your service delivery. Stop being just in business! Work on business to build a successful business. Are you ready to do that?
