Success Strategies for Using Linkedin as a Biz Building PlatformMarch 13, 2009
The path to being a successful business owner and the strategies for success have not changed. It may be a tougher road, or even a longer road, but the recipe for success, and the tools to hammer it out, are not much different than they were ten or twenty years ago. To begin with, you need focus and to know how to fully leverage yourself. You need to define your own strategies for success, to learn the necessary information and techniques to be effective without getting overly caught up in the learning, and most importantly you need a great mentor to help you identify your needle movers.
Once you identify these, you will be able to see that much of what you thought you needed to learn and do will simply not have an immediate impact on your business. You will then be freed and able to focus on what WILL. Quite simply, it’s vital that you focus on the right things. For instance, most of us need to focus on marketing effectively (with specific results), closing sales, and delivering products / services. So we need to define the specific results we want, in specific areas, in a given period of time and then either delegate or ditch all other efforts until these have been achieved. That’s a strategy for success that will put you squarely in the right direction.
