A Basic Guide to Small Business Ownership and Managerial Training

Business ownership is an extremely tempting form of income for many people. The idea of creating your own work hours and environment is great, and the constant opportunities for your ingenuity to be put to use would have any creative person asking, “where can I sign up?” Although there are huge perks to owning your own business, there are twice as many issues that come along with it.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Discover People Can Be a Distracting Nuisance To Business Ownership

In watching The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, I quickly discovered that Eustace was a uncooperative nuisance and a continual party-crasher. A real bummer! Same for business ownership. There will be people who are a huge nuisance and you don’t want to be around them because they become a huge distraction, bring you down, and is bad for business.

For most business owners, they can’t stand to be around nuisance. Nuisance people tend to be negative, demeaning, lazy, and it’s unattractive…INSIDE. Now, I’m not saying you have to hang around negative people or even like them. On the contrary, you need to develop Positive Relationships and cultivating these type of friendships takes hard work and trust.

People Can Change If They Choose To

What I am saying though is that, given the right situation, knowledge, environment, and opportunity, nuisance-prone people can learn to change if they choose to. That’s just it…they have to WANT to make their lives better. We can’t accomplish this task for them.

People who decide to take the necessary steps for personal development and growth, realize that they genuinely can live positive, productive, and “attractive” lives. Have you ever been around a person, especially for me, it’s usually a female, who has a very profane and vulgar mouth? One who seems to use expletives every single word?

NOT VERY pretty, is it?

Caring and Encouraging Positive Action

Like Eustace in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, some people just need some encouragement to become better human beings. Some need the knowledge to know better. I’m partial to this, however, because I believe there’s some “common sense” when it comes to behavior modification and breaking “bad habits”.

People, annoying, nuisance-prone people, need to know that someone cares about them, believes in them, and is willing to invest their time to help the “subject” discover that they can become more than what they currently are. In the scope of business ownership, this awareness is vital for any business to grow substantially with any value.

Usually speaking, Positive Changes in a person’s life takes Positive Action and doesn’t happen overnight. Especially, since bad habits have taken, sometimes, years to develop. It shouldn’t be expected to get a person who’s a nuisance to you and your business to change right away.

Nonetheless, with effort, determination, perseverance, knowledge, and taking action, positive and valuable results can exist!

It may take some time. Yet, it CAN happen.

Meeting Nuisance Head-On

So, what can one do? Well, I believe that we need to encourage those willing to change and leave behind anyone willing to remain belligerent, a nuisance, apathetic, lazy, who desires just to live a mediocre life. Not much you can do for them anyhow!

In the space of business ownership and entrepreneurship, meeting nuisance head-on can be a creative way to cultivate your patience. Invite these types of challenges, annoying customers, and see it as an opportunity to develop your personal growth.

How can you help? Below are 3 ways to help an annoying, nuisance-prone person break the “annoying,” sometimes destructive habits.

1. Help Them Identify When the Habit Appears Most Prominently

Conscience awareness is vital to identify when a bad habit appears. Often, habits appear just like clock-work, without much thought. It’s on the sub-conscience level that a solution becomes more challenging. There’s hope, though. I say that the bigger the challenge or obstacle, the more glory there is in overcoming it.

2. Help Them Define How Much Control They Have Over the Habit

Everyone wants control! Mostly, people with nuisance and bad habits just don’t know HOW to control themselves. No self-discipline. It becomes essential, especially in a business ownership situation, to gain control when circumstances get out of control. Someone who truly leads will be able to discern when they need to “jump in” and take control of an annoying customer or employee.

3. Help Them To Break the Habit By Replacing It With a Less-Annoying Habit

This is easier said than done, I know. Nonetheless, it’s better to replace a bad, sometimes destructive habit, with a lesser one because this allows them “space” to work through their behavior modification processes more effectively.

In my opinion, I’d rather see a person bite their nails than have them constantly interjecting their words by disrupting the conversation when I’m speaking.

Everyone reading this probably has been guilty of interrupting someone when they’re talking.

Most importantly, be patient and do your best to show grace and compassion when dealing with a nuisance. Show kindness, gentleness, self-control, and humility. Often times, if none of this works to help them, you just have to ignore the person and move on with your business and life!

Secret Discovered

Whether in a business ownership or merely in life, you’ll soon discover that people can, and will, be a distracting nuisance. They WILL exist. It’s a part of life. Fortunately, people can change if they choose to. As Servants and those who Lead, we are entrusted to lead by example and illustrate what it means to be overcome bad habits and to live positive, productive, and attractive lives.

In The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, you’ll notice that Eustace realized his annoying behavior and how he had become a “royal” nuisance to everyone. It took great deal of encouragement, grace, and patience to have Eustace turn around from his actions. Eustace made such a turn around, that his actions influenced C. L. Lewis’ next 2 The Chronicles of Narnia books.

Do you suppose you could help someone overcome their bad habits? If so, how do you suppose helping someone if you’ve got to conquered your own bad habits? Once you do become victorious, how will this “defeat” cultivate you into a better, more courageous person?

Many Entrepreneurs Fail Before Taking the First Step Towards Business Ownership

An overwhelming number of entrepreneurs begin their business endeavors with nothing more than a good idea. However, there is much more to establishing and operating a successful company and it should start with a plan. I have encountered several future business owners who do indeed have a stellar idea but lack the time, focus, fearlessness, or planning required to take a company from the start-up phase to a point of success beyond stagnancy. Starting and growing a successful business demands patience, tenacity, and resilience to deal with day-to-day operations that will inevitably be laced with setbacks and failures. It is the accomplished business owners and managers who plan for these dilemmas and the expenses associated with them in a professionally written business plan created during the early stages of company development. An admirable idea is indeed necessary in the creation of a unique and distinct company, but there comes a point when that idea must be converted into well-defined action that takes into account the pros and cons of daily ventures.

The number one characteristic all entrepreneurs should possess is undying fearlessness. As an owner there will be times when you desire certain attributes for your company. It is solely the responsibility of ownership and management to negotiate for these desires, and without the steadfastness required to acquire what you desire the possibility of accomplishing your goals is greatly reduced. Withdrawing when negotiations reach objectionable areas only decreases the eventuality of achieving success in that particular venture. Owners must be relentless when striving for the success of their companies. Every negotiation will not be easily overcome but all negotiations possess the potential for successful outcomes. The fear of success and what it entails hinders many business owners. Do not let the fear of achieving your predetermined goals be the setback that prevents your company from becoming what you envisioned when you dreamed of its existence.

In addition to bold and steadfast action related to daily endeavors of a business, entrepreneurs must be focused on driving their companies from start-up to prosperity in a predetermined length of time. Fearlessness and focus go hand in hand when it comes to advancing a company towards maximum profits, and if substantial earnings is not the dominating factor for a company it will be short-lived or forever stagnant. Time, effort and money is paramount in the attainment of wealth for any entrepreneur. Without accepting these aspects of business no company will succeed. Furthermore, a plan for success enables business owners with the reinforcement and concentration to help them remain committed in their quests for growth.

This is how a well written business plan enables entrepreneurs at the start of the business ownership journey. A well written plan not only provides a means of guidance as to how a company will reach its destiny, but it accommodates owners and managers with a sense of security in spite of hardships encountered along the way. Adversity will happen, but the projections set forth during the development of a business plan takes every pitfall of the company and its industry into consideration. Therefore, unforeseen circumstances will not catch company decision makers off guard. Instead management can make the necessary adjustments and remain on track to earn abundant revenues.

So, solicit the help of a professional Business Plan Writer during the start-up phase of business. It will set your company up for success before it is too late. If you already have an established company and would like to see it grow, a plan writer can assist you in accomplishing what you originally envisioned for your business. Many entrepreneurs fail before taking the first step towards business ownership. Don’t let the lack of a well written business plan be your downfall. The development of a business plan is the most important decision any owner with goals of launching and successfully operating a business can make. Make the right decision, hire me today to create for you a detailed, precise, and professional business plan that will position you ahead of your competition for years to come.
