14 Ways to Give Your Business Some Love

Happy woman daydreaming about love in officeFeeling a little ho-hum about your business or ministry? Or perhaps you’re so overwhelmed with daily tasks that you don’t have time to give your business the attention it deserves. Many mompreneurs think of their business like another baby – one that needs some tender loving care. But it’s easy to neglect our little darlings, at times. So, here are 14 ways to give your business or ministry some love! 1. Make it official. If you haven’t established a legal entity, opened a business checking account, filed for a trademark, purchased a URL or obtained a business license, then maybe it’s time to make it official! 2. Celebrate success. Entrepreneurs are constantly focusing on what they need to accomplish and how they can improve. Pause a minute to take an inventory of what you have been doing well – and celebrate! 3. Automate. If there’s a process or task in your business that’s draining your energy and consuming your time, create a way to automate or systematize it. You can find tools to automate everything from appointment scheduling to email management. 4. Shift your perspective. Spend a day (or even an hour) experiencing your business from the eyes of your customer. You’ll discover a whole new perspective that might lead to some positive change! 5. Delegate some duties. If you’re overworked and unable to focus on the “big picture,” you may need to delegate a few tasks and experience the Gift of Support. Maybe you need to delegate housework or childcare or make your first hire in the business. 6. Generate some revenue. Nothing gives you a boost of energy like an influx of cash flow! Make a list today of 5 things you could do to quickly bring in some revenue over the next two weeks. 7. Learn something new. There’s no such thing as the status quo for entrepreneurs. If we’re not growing, then we’re dying. Take time to expand your knowledge, invest in growth and develop your skills so you can better serve your customers.  8. Get married. (Or at least go on a date!) If you’re a solo business owner, consider exploring outside your comfort zone and working with a partner on a project. You may find you are stronger together! 9. Take a day off. When you are truly burned out, don’t push through. Instead, walk away from the business for the day and recharge your business batteries with some fresh air, a good book, a long nap or some other treat! 10. Let go. I know you have a bazillion fabulous ideas. I do, too. But when we entertain thoughts of too many things, we can’t focus on any one thing. Today’s a good day to let go of something that’s not working. 11. Declare your love! It’s scary to tell the whole world about your business or ministry. To share your passion and be vulnerable to ridicule and indifference. But if you truly love what you do, then stand behind it and tell us all about it! 12. Stop thinking so much. Many of us tend to agonize over minor decisions or procrastinate with perfectionism. There’s no reward for sitting in indecision and ruminating longer than necessary. Is there a decision you need to make today? 13. Set some boundaries. If you’re running a business while raising a family, you probably love the flexibility of setting your own schedule. Just make sure you set boundaries so the flexibility doesn’t turn into chaos. 14. Pray for it. Yes, it’s ok to pray for your business success. Ask God to bless others through you and your business. Pray that he continues to guide you to make wise decisions and follow his path. Now it’s your turn! How do you give your business or ministry a little tender loving care?
