As owners, we are pulled in a hundred directions every single day in our business and our personal lives. But the answer to this one question will help you define your priorities. What does the business need?

What Does The Business Need?

Business owners face hundreds of decisions every single day. It can be easy to get stuck in the weeds of the business, your team members’ needs, and daily pressures.  However, they struggle to make choices they feel good about. So how can you wade through the tough decisions around hiring, training, firing, business processes, and more? I recommend that you ask yourself this question (and answer honestly): “What does the business need?”

What Was Your Answer?

If you answer honestly, you’ll find that looking at things from this higher perspective will allow you to see what the next best thing is for your business. When I asked a business owner recently in his coaching session, he came to a point of clarity that allowed him to make a decision that was right for his business and the situation.  It’s important to remember this as a founder, you aren’t making a decision for anything besides your business.
