  12. 12. THING THEY’VE LEARNED ABOUT THEIR BUSINESS IN 2016? WHAT IS THE MOST surprising
  13. 13. Here's what they had to say…
  14. 14. I've learned that if you aren't growing, you're dying! Running a business is finding that perfect mix of continuing to improve what you do well while exploring the new strategies that will take you to the next level. You can't keep putting in the same input and expect a different output. Laura Roeder, Founder of Edgar “
  15. 15. I shouldn't just avoid a business because I don't like how others do it. The most successful folks run their businesses their own way, regardless of the norm or paradigm that currently exists. Paul Jarvis, Four-time bestselling author “
  16. 16. That it's a real business! Honestly, I spent the last four years employing only 1.5 people, including moi. And now 2016 has seen me hire four full-timers so far. It's taught me that my business expands to the size of the "box" I put it in. When I keep the box tiny, the business stays tiny; when I hire talented people to help me push out the walls of the box, the business opens up, breathes and grows.  Joanna Wiebe, Founder of Copy Hackers “
  17. 17. That time spent planning is never wasted. Taking time to slow down in order to speed up is important. I've learned that for every 1 hour spent in strategic planning to expect 2 hours worth of results. Activity does not always equal progress. You've got to be working on the right things at the right times.  Joseph Michael, Creator of Learn Scrivener Fast “
  18. 18. The power of delegating to a team and letting them take over parts of your business to make it even better. I've taken on a few new team members and they're rocking my world. I also just had my virtual assistant take on a full-time job elsewhere (very happy for her) but with a short handover it made me realize how my systems and SOPs actually work and the transition has been relatively straight forward. Natalie Sisson, Founder of The Suitcase Entrepreneur “
  19. 19. Most surprising thing = spending less time on my business has increased my revenue. Leaving the day-to-day stuff to other people leaves me free to focus on strategy and growth. Nick Stephenson, Bestselling author “
  20. 20. I learned that increasing my rates actually helped me get more clients. I was terrified about doubling my rates but have found it was the best thing I could have done and should have done it sooner! Vanessa van Edwards, Founder of Science of People “
  21. 21. The most surprising thing I learned about my business so far in 2016 is something I probably should have realized way sooner. I didn't really start to bring more A-players on my team until recently…This has been a game changer for me so I can focus on the most important things only I can do, and I'm growing my business much faster because I invested in building my team. Navid Moazzez, Virtual summit expert “
  22. 22. That with online courses, I can take middle-of-the-week trips and not feel guilty or stressed since my business is able to run on autopilot. ;) Melyssa Griffin, Founder of MelyssaGriffin.com “
  23. 23. That Facebook Ads are more effective now than ever.“ Mark Dawson, Creator of The Self Publishing Formula
  24. 24. You play a whole new game every couple of months. We're growing 20%+ month on month -- the company we're running in April is substantially different from the company I was running in January.   And it's incredibly difficult to get yourself to stop doing things that made sense at a certain size, but just don't anymore. Ankur Napgal, Founder of Teachable “
