How can you be successful in 2012?

As 2011 closes on us, the question that is on most people’s mind is – what will 2012 bring us?

And in my opinion that is totally the wrong question.  If you wait to see what you get, you will get what the masses get and that is they will either struggle along for another year, or they will go out of business.

Most people let me that they are on LinkedIn, but they don’t really use it and so win no business from it.  Is that you?

A better question is – what will I do in 2012 in order to create the business I want.  The key here is the word do.

I have a very profound question for you:

Why aren’t you already successful?

For many people in business the answer to this is usually external.  It is the economy.  It is the fact the they don’t have the budget.  It is the competition.  In truth this is not the case.  The truth is: “The fish stinks from the head down”.  In other words if there is something wrong with your business, then it is your fault and you as a business owner need to fix it.

Most business owners I speak to say things like “I am too busy”.  Too busy making no money to have the time to use LinkedIn and other Social Media sites?  We can all be busy, but are we busy, doing the right things?  For most businesses the answer is NO.

90% of the business owners I speak to tell me that they want to grow their businesses, but they are not busy doing so.  They are in fact often busy working as an employee in their business.

How can you grow your business in 2012?

The answer is simple, you have got to put more time, money and effort into the things that will help you to grow your business.

You’ve guessed it – you have got to focus on your businesses sales and marketing.

What would it mean to your business if you have a marketing expert working in it besides you?
