You’re passionate about what you do, and you’re excited to be in business, maybe for the first time. Starting a new venture is always a busy and action-packed time, and with things going everywhere and in all directions at once it can be easy to overlook some things.

This week’s series of posts is about helping you as a small business owner, whether it’s something new or you’ve been doing it for a while, identify and establish the foundations for a strong business, with capacity for expansion and growth.

Having worked with businesses of all sizes we’ve seen the same patterns again and again, both in businesses who are getting it right and the ones who are floundering and need to go back and review these basics. And, although there are never any guarantees in business, we are confident when we say that if you get these five foundations right you’ll be well on the way to success in the future.

5 foundational things to get right in order to maximize your chances of growth and success

This is the schedule we’ll be covering this week:

  1. Monday: Employment contracts: the backbone of successful business
  2. Tuesday: Policies and procedures, why they’re so crucial
  3. Wednesday: Keeping great records
  4. Thursday: Focus on what you do best (outsource the rest)
