There’s never a bad time to focus on business growth, is there?
But what does success even mean?
And how do you even begin to map out your goals for business growth?
We’re going to answer those two big ol’ questions in today’s blog post, so grab a cup of tea or a massive mug of coffee and let’s hop to it.
What is Business Success Anyway?
The whole idea of being successful in business is a bit odd.
I mean, every single person has a different perspective on what makes them and their business a success.
For you, is it a certain amount of income? Or is it impact? Maybe just maybe, it is those fancy entrepreneurs that you look up to knowing your name and your mission.
What we know for sure at Plann is that with Instagram now having over 1 billion users there is definitely an increase in the amount of competition out there. You’ve really got to do something different and showcase your points of difference in your marketing to stand out in 2019.
