Anyone else a huge fan of the vanilla Betty Crocker cupcake mix? I certainly am! In fact, some people would say that I’m best known for my cupcakes!! The thing I love about making these is that I know I’ll get a consistent, delicious result every single time. Why? Because there is a RECIPE! This recipe has been around a long time and over and over it produces the same delicious results!
Why am I talking about cupcakes in a business article? It’s simple…the recipe for success in business is the same as a cupcake recipe…a consistent, time tested approach to doing something with great results!
I spent many years in my second business without a mentor or a trusted advisor. This meant that I was making things up as I went along trying to develop my own recipe for success. Unfortunately, this also meant that I was spending loads of cash and hours of time on “trial and error” which in the end didn’t work. An example? My first website cost me $25,000! Whoops!
Don’t get me wrong though…there is value in learning from one’s mistakes. However, isn’t it preferable to accelerate the growth of a business and limit those expensive mistakes if you can? Isn’t it better to learn from people who have been there, done that and come out the other side smelling like roses? Isaac Newton said it best; “If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.”
So I ask you today…what “proven” recipe are you following in your business that will lead to great results? If you’re making things up as you go, you might want to rethink that approach sooner rather than later. It’s a strategy that won’t serve you well in the long run.
