The Only Thing We Can Control
In business we often have to wear different hats and suddenly you find you are in charge of everything. They say you bring your business with you, so however you feel, will be reflected in your business and vice versa. You quickly need to realise bad stuff will happen and it's not always your fault. It's often he we react to things that either make them challenges to solve or problems to avoid.So tip of today is:-"the only choice we sometimes have is how we react to things, this doesn't stop challenges or problems happening, but does mean we keep grounded whatever happens. How are you going to react today?".

Keep Things Simple
The temptation when you start a business is to create an extremely detailed business plan covering every future business scenario. A business plan is great but don't get bogged down in the detail, things always change so instead make sure you remain focussed on your number one objective and how you intend to hit that objective. Lots of people are willing to give advice but remember, if they don't run their own business they know little more than you, so keep focussed on your number one objective.Keep a website simple to...your customers will thank you for that

Be Clear On What You Offer
Being absolutely certain what you offer your client is essential. It's tempting to offer a bit of everything to everyone, but that's unlikely to trump those specialising in each area individually. Focus on what you can offer your client and be absolutely clear on the product, service or offering you can provide. That way, you'll be sure that your website is relevant (in search results, as well as to read) and you'll find it easier to find clients who are looking for exactly what you're offering.
