THE BIZ MINDSET HACKS - DAY 21 - Becoming Dangerous
DEDICATING FEBRUARY IN SUPPORT OF YOUR SUCCESS BUSINESS MINDSET
INNOVATE - EVOLVE - GROW
Do you ever wonder why some people have the ability to bounce from success to success, without falter?
To be clear, no one has that ability, but it can seem like that.
We need more than motivational quotes to succeed. There are many mindsets, skills, and attributes required for success as a business owner & entrepreneur.
Fortunately, most of them can be learned, strengthened, and honed through diligence and a willingness to grow.
Having a growth success mindset as an entrepreneur will enable you to deal more effectively with the day-to-day of your business. Because you will be thinking – and acting – like a true entrepreneur.
Business Mindset Definition
Business mindset: a way of thinking that enables you to uncover and see problems as opportunities, and then turning those opportunities into a business. It is an understanding that everything around us is the result of someone having an idea and then executing it.
Every day we'll be sharing one business mind-hack at a time that will dramatically improve your business – and life.
We invite you to join our conversation with your thoughts and supportive comments of wisdom, experience, ways forward, mind-hacks, tips and advice.

KNOW ENOUGH TO BE DANGEROUS
As entrepreneurs we need to know enough to be dangerous in every area.
If someone crosses our path and isn’t good at their job, we have to be able to recognise that.
That’s part of what creates these long days: we need to learn all aspects of the business.
If we don’t, it is hard to delegate, because we don’t know what is good and what is bad.

One of my favourite business mind-hacks: Knowing enough to be dangerous gives us the leverage points that we need. It is very hard to outsource something completely if you know nothing about it.
Obviously, we don’t need to know everything and be accountants, lawyers and editors all-in-one, but we have to know enough to be dangerous.
Don’t listen to the experts who tell you that you can only do a tiny bit of your business and have to outsource the rest. There’s no such thing as a four-hour work week and being able to outsource everything, especially not at the beginning.
Unfortunately, you have to dive in head first and learn everything about your business that there is to learn. This works if you want to learn how to get on the first page of Google or sell courses online.
Then, when you get lucky and have that momentum, you can take the revenue you’ve created, take all the bits of knowledge you have and put people in place to take care of those things. Remember, it’s still your business and you are still responsible for it.
And this is why we have the Business Mastery Program to bootstrap old and new business owners with the foundation knowledge of all the necessary elements in a successful business, how to secure high standards and maintain forward growth.
It’s your turn to implement this business hack
Learning how to have a business mindset will affect your success or failure in business. Luckily, your mindset is also the thing you have the most control over. Choose one mindset shift to adopt at a time and begin working on its development.
As you become more confident and comfortable with this new mindset, move onto the next. Push yourself to be one percent better than you were yesterday, and start with changing your mindset.
Developing these success mindsets will give you the resilience and direction you need to push through the ups and downs that come with running a business.
