Avoid The Perfectionist Pitfall - Why Good Enough Is Glorious

Who of us strives for complete perfection with every aspect of our work? 

Yes, I see those hands up! 

Do you secretly know polishing your work until it shines immaculately, is 100% perfect - is not a productive way to spend your time, but yet you do it anyway? 

I think most of us know deep down it is far better to aim for PROGRESS, not perfection. We all want to move our business forward - so why don't we embrace it and just stop "polishing"?  When is good enough, good enough?

 

What is it like to be a perfectionist?

According to Personal Excellence ‘perfectionists’ seek to achieve a perfect element in everything they do. They refuse to accept anything less than this level, no matter what the toll this takes on their health or business.

Structuring For Success - Time To Make A Change

So many online businesses that I work with come to realise that they aren't structured as they need to be, for growth and success.

From not delegating effectively, to not investing in systems to help you scale and the classic - avoiding a hard review of any kind of performance on a monthly basis (also known as the "Ostrich head in the sand" method of running a business!)...

Know Your Niche! Being Specific Gets Powerful Results

Having a niche can make or break your online business.  Yes it really is that important!

Discovering your profitable niche and one that you are genuinely passionate about is the key to success in eCommerce and online businesses. As they say there are riches in niches...

So why is this the case?  Surely if I narrow my offering right down to such a small segment, it means I will loose out on sales?

Not so my friend, not so... in fact quite the opposite.

 

The secret power of niches

You see having a niche allows you to get specific about what you do as a business, and who your target audience is

It allows you to tailor absolutely everything you say as if you are talking to one very specific person...and that will make them fall in love with you even more! They will be shouting "finally! someone gets me!"...

You can and should analyse profitable niches before you start your business to help you select the best market to play in.  So, if you are...
