How did I make my business grow?

Written by Louise Plant

Well it was quite like growing my garden.

First I had to decide what I wanted the business to be like and it is this that took time for me. Once I saw the big picture then things started to create with own momentum.

When you grow the garden, you plan what you want it in. Each garden is unique to its location, the initial planner, the space used, the exposure and how often it is weeded and by whom. Your business is very much like that.

Ideally we plan the big picture of what the business is.

Is it a hobby or is it a lifestyle change? What do we want it to look like?

This is the advice I would offer you, if you were to be starting any project or business. What do you want it to look like in the future? This gives you a vision to work towards and we like to be positive future orientated. I would recommend that you chunk this vision down until you start to unpack and explore your own genius.

Then explore what is unique about your project or business.

I have many businesses now, though the thing that makes them my businesses is me.

I am the unique part of that. As I had so many parts and aspects to what I was doing I had to find a way to keep it simple. So I asked myself, What are the 3 pillars to my message and my business? This was a way of chunking this down into the three aspects of my uniqueness that I embody.

Connection, the earth and education then became my pillars.

Now I have those pillars I can unpack them and I can keep unpacking these words and opening them up.

What do they mean, why are they important to me, how do they affect others, what are their benefits, who are affected by these? This unpacking can go on and on.

So I have the plan, my vision for the future. I choose what plants to grow, they are my pillars. Then I decide how I want the garden to look, this is how I choose to carry out my business message.

The next thing to know is it will take time. Plants need time to grow as businesses do.

Yer, we hear stories of people becoming millionaires in 30 days or so, though for the majority of us we have to tend to the business seeds that we have planted.

They need to be watered and tended to. This takes time. I have been ‘working’ aspects of my business for 12 months. This is time for engagement to happen, for people to listen to your language, for people to learn your message and start to see what garden it is that you are creating.

Your garden and your business also need to be loved and weeded. Take out the things that are not serving or working for you and stay with the plants and things that do.

Your business is like your garden.

It needs regular attendance, love, weeding, watering and nurturing. If you ignore it things can get out of hand. Consistent attention will give a high yield producing crop for you to enjoy harvesting.

Sure you might have to work hard in the beginning to get it established, so be prepared for that, though know over time, it will produce its rewards.

Finally make your business and your garden unique. It is created by your mastership, by your unique hands. Know that and acknowledge that, and others will so learn to love your self-acceptance as you learn to love it as well.

If you are starting up any business or you want support through any venture that you may have, I offer an 8 week one to one coaching program called Louise’s Lift Off Program,
