Enjoy The Process
When building a business, it can be easy to get caught up with the constant stress of day to day operations, along with the stress of wanting to grow.
At this time it is important to enjoy the process. Yes it may feel like a hundred things are flying at you at the same time, but you are working in the long term.
Building a business that has an impact on its community and is meaningful takes time.
Your business will require most of your waking hours for a period of time. That is just part of creating something great. But knowing this, be more thoughtful about the process. Put forth the extra effort to enjoy the work you are doing and the stage you are at. If you are trying to expand, have patience. As long as you are actively working to do so, it will get there; but it does not happen over night.
The moral of the story: Have patience and be consistent with your efforts.
If you take a look at all of the bigger businesses in you industry to see how they got to where they are today, you’ll see that it was years in the making. Even the ones that seem to be an overnight success, there were years of work put in before that rapid growth happened.
