Be Intentional about your Decision to Grow your Business




Are you prepared for growth?

Are you equipped with the strategies and resources needed for growth?

Preparation is key for business growth. It lays the foundation for success and helps business owners navigate the complexities and challenges that come with expansion.

In the previous article, which was part one of The Conscious Decision to Grow, we emphasized the importance of preparation for business growth. We explored the initial five steps that business owners must undertake in their preparation journey.

  1. Gain an understanding of the significance and purpose of your broader vision.

  2. Be committed to the long-term success of your business.

  3. Embrace the mindset of a proactive entrepreneur.

  4. Careful consideration of the potential risks, challenges, and investments involved in pursuing growth.

  5. Assess the current state of your business.


We will now proceed to the next five steps which will assist in your preparation for growth.


  • A strong sense of purpose and determination.

A sense of purpose serves as a guiding light, aligning your decisions, strategies, and actions towards achieving your growth objectives. Determination plays an important role in fueling the drive and resilience needed to overcome challenges and setbacks along the path of growth. It is the steadfast commitment to stay focused, motivated, and persistent, even when faced with obstacles.


  • Being willing to take decisive action to drive growth.

This involves making bold and calculated moves to propel your business forward. It also calls for establishing daily routines that support your business goals. Each action, no matter how small, contributes to the larger picture of success. By consistently taking meaningful steps and adhering to productive routines, you establish a strong foundation for sustained growth.


  • Taking a thoughtful and deliberate approach to nurturing relationships.

At the core of nurturing relationships lies the recognition that different seasons call for different types of relationships.  It also calls for an understanding of the value and impact that positive relationships can have on your business. It goes beyond transactional interactions and focuses on fostering long-term, meaningful connections that are built on trust, respect, and mutual benefit.


  • Ensuring that your consumption of information aligns with your overarching vision.

Your overarching vision serves as a guiding light for your business. By aligning your information consumption with your vision, you stay focused on what truly matters. It helps filter out irrelevant or distracting information, allowing you to prioritize the knowledge and insights that directly impact your strategic choices hence contributing to the realisation of your vision.


  • Structuring your business in a way that facilitates growth.

By intentionally designing your business structure and framework, you create a solid foundation that supports and nurtures growth opportunities. It involves designing processes, implementing technologies, and establishing the right practices that align with your growth objectives.


By embracing these preparation steps and integrating them into your business, you lay the groundwork for sustainable and successful growth. Remember, preparation is an ongoing process, and each step contributes to the overall journey of business growth. Stay committed, proactive, and intentional in your approach, and you will be well-positioned to navigate the challenges and seize the opportunities that come with business growth.
