In the words of Mark Twain, “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”
This important quote is perfect for business owners, as you will want to consistently connect with the fight within you along with your energy of desire… to create the business that you have envisioned. By connecting with your fight and your desire, you will be inspired to move forward with a definite purpose and a noticeable passion towards success.
It is far too easy to go through the daily motions in your business and to completely forget why you formed your company in the first place. Day-to-day responsibilities and challenges can easily wear you down and leave you wondering if this is really what you had in mind.
A suggestion: Begin to reconnect with the feelings, thoughts, and dreams that first inspired you to take the courageous steps in starting your company. As you determine and consciously acknowledge what you really want as a business owner, don’t worry what others are doing or the direction in which they are heading… their goals and dreams may be worlds away from yours.
Springtime represents a time of growth, renewal, and hope. This is the perfect time to begin to market your business for the reassurance that new opportunities will positively impact your company’s future.

Daily, you churn out the work, oversee your staff, put out fires, and indirectly hide in the shade of your business. You may wonder and worry why new business isn’t coming in.
