The Top, Two Words for Small Business Success

Latest posts by Melanie Rembrandt (see all)

If you are just starting a business, you are probably overwhelmed with information and a huge, “To Do” list. If you are like me and have been in business for several years, you are probably swamped right now with end-of-year activities.

Well, whether you are a new entrepreneur or a seasoned pro, it can be difficult to focus and get everything done, especially this time of year.

With this in mind, I have two simple words that can change your entire outlook for your business, give you a sense of peace and help you build better relationships with everyone you work with and all of your customers too.

Use these two words to:

•    Focus on what’s important.
•    Remember how far you’ve come.
•    Appreciate all of the people who have helped you.
•    Learn lessons from failures and move on.
•    Take a breath and de-stress.
•    Feel gratitude for everything you have and what the future holds.

What are these words?

Well, you’ve probably guessed them by now, but if not, they’re “Thank you.”

Yes. They are two, simple words. They mean a lot to the people we say them to, but they also remind us to be grateful for what we have. Even the biggest issues seem smaller when you say these two, precious words. They are very important words that can lead to ultimate success – both personally and professionally.

So if you haven’t said them lately, please use them frequently this week. We all have a lot to be thankful for… even when times are tough.

And since it is Thanksgiving this week in the U.S., I want to take the time to thank all of you. Thank you for your feedback, comments and suggestions. Most importantly, thank you for reading this blog. It’s a joy to share information, and I hope you find it helpful.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
