Find your core

Lately I've had meetings and conversations with new and experienced business owners who wanted advice to help them grow. They differ greatly in terms of their businesses and their experience, but the one thing they all had in common was the challenge to keep it simple. They all wanted to take on too much at once, to offer more services than necessary or to market themselves in a way that would confuse customers.

Weed out the bad

I got a little carried away planting my garden this summer. I have flowers in beds, hanging baskets and clay pots. Lots of flowers. Now that the heat of the summer is upon us, some of them are not doing well and need to be pulled out. It kills me to pull out a plant and toss it away, especially after all that time I spent planning where to plant it, watering, fertilizing and nurturing it. Still, after all that TLC some plants are dead or dying. This leaves me with the choice to pull out the dying plants and let them go or try to bring them back to life. This is not unlike many of the tough the decisions we have to make in our lives and our businesses.
