Episode 343: Nurture Your Business: Do You Have a Business Routine?
We’re all aware that routines can make our personal lives easier, but what about business routines? Do you have a daily business routine that doesn’t focus on just mundane tasks but also on specific steps that lead to more sales? How is a routine like this built? How can we use it to measure whether our current actions are beneficial for our business? In this episode, I talk about why successful entrepreneurs have a business routine and how we can build one for ourselves.
It’s in the repetitive act of doing that we see success. -Dana Malstaff
3 Things We Learned From This Episode
- After interviewing many successful people, I’ve found that the people who are most successful have a routine.
- A routine doesn’t always involve doing repetitive tasks.
- In the end, what makes a business successful is finding actions that attract clients and make more sales, then putting those actions on repeat.
Routines can help us measure success and productivity. When we focus on the same things over a prolonged period, it’s easier to find out what works, what doesn’t, and where we should make some tweaks. When we don’t have a routine in place, we can only guess what we’re doing wrong because our actions are inconsistent. It can also help our productivity, as we’re most likely to put in the work if we create a daily habit out of it.
