Guest Post by Kate Powers
This week we celebrated Valentine’s Day – a day to express our love and passion for people, but what about our business?
Love is important in building a successful business. It is a key ingredient in your success recipe!
Think on this…you walk past a great window display of a new shop and are drawn into the store. You like what you see, but you find the woman behind the counter to have a less then helpful attitude. To your surprise, she tells you she just opened the shop last month. She is the owner!
We have all been in shops like this, where the employee or owner seems burdened by your shopping needs. Or they are too busy texting or chatting on a personal call to notice you. Does this make you want to do business with them? NO! Why? They aren’t excited to serve you, the customer, without whom they have no business. It seems they don’t love or even like their business.
Is it clear to your customers or potential customers that you LOVE what you do? Are you so excited to serve others through sharing your gift, talent, product or service that you can barely contain yourself?
Are you excited to send your newsletters out because it gives you the opportunity to share relevant information to help those on your list?
I am! I am excited to write each blog post, connect with each “friend” on Facebook, run my group coaching program each week, show up fully and give more than expected to my clients, because I LOVE what I do. The behind-the-scenes work to my business, which I don’t love to do, is easier to tackle when I see how it is connected to the areas I DO love.
Being an entrepreneur is an amazing opportunity to share your passion and your expertise with others, while loving what you do and those you serve. Being passionate and loving what you do gives others permission to do the same.
Be a love bug in your business today!
