Business Decisions You Shouldn't Put Off Any Longer

If you have just started your business, you will need to make some important decisions that will determine your success.

Below you will find a few of them that will be crucial to steer your venture in the right direction.

Brand Image

You need to create a clear message for your potential customers on what your company and personal brand are about. You need to find your unique selling proposition and communicate it through various brand messages; social media, your website, and business literature. This challenging task will bring in a lot of results, as you can reach people who can emotionally connect with the uniqueness of your business.

Mission and Vision

No matter how big or small your business is, you will have to create a mission and vision statement. If you can communicate your values and give your prospective buyers a good enough reason to buy from you, your job will get much easier. List the things you care about and are passionate about, and your long term goals. Put it in a few sentences, and display it on your site, social media pages, as well as your business communication and internal branding materials for employees.

Market Penetration

You will also have to make a decision about how you will enter the market. For this, you will have to create an analysis. Check out the competition, the threats, the availability of substitute products and services, as well as the price competition before you develop a market entry strategy.

When you start off, you often find yourself facing small business marketing challenges. To overcome these, you will need to identify the things that are holding you back. If you are just doing some marketing here and then, and have no strategy, you might be feeling like you are shooting in the dark. Find a way to stand out from the competition, do your research, and get help with developing a marketing funnel that will automatically turn your visitors to leads and leads to customers.

Outsourcing vs. Solopreneur

If you would like to improve your business, you will need to decide whether or not you will be able to cope with the workload. If you find yourself doing your accounts and creating content at 10 p.m., chances are that you will need help. Accept your limitations and you can find new ways to scale your business.

People often find it hard to make important business decisions that will have a huge impact on the future of their business. If you are struggling with strategy and identifying your strengths and weknesses, take a step back and focus on what’s holding you back from success.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
