Here's a taste of the types of things we're discussing in our private Indie Business Member Facebook group. While we discuss issues like product making and ingredient sourcing, most of the sharing is around business issues. Our members especially love topics concerning business and success mindset, increasing profits, as well as specific marketing and business strategies. In this video, I answer one of the questions posed recently in our private Facebook group, to give you an idea of what you're missing if you're not there.
There are so many things thrown at you every day. You must train yourself to deflect extraneous information and embrace only the information and activities that will help you reach your goals.
Appoint your cabinet.
Just like a United States president, you need a cabinet too! The purpose of appointing a cabinet is to ensure that you have a close group of advisors who will assist you as you carry out your duties as the leader of your company. They will encourage and support you, and hold you accountable.
I have blogged about this many times in the past, but it bears repeating. And repeating again …
This is the one thing creative entrepreneurs often resist the most, and I have seen it kill profitability and growth far too many times.
