UK Business Growth Opportunities
Business leaders need confidence in their decision making and entrepreneurial thinking to find new business opportunities.
Are You an entrepreneur of business leader who is procrastinating or fearful of the future
Look at the world through an improving business and economic environment. The UK is strong and set to get stronger:
- House prices are resilient.
- Job creation is encouraging.
- The pound is weaker but this is a net positive benefit for many businesses.
- Borrowing money is probably never going to be cheaper than it is right now.
- It’s probably never going to be easier to export from UK to new and existing markets.
- The present is good and the future looks bright
The UK has the skills and ability to be greater than it is right now
Don’t listen to the doom-mongers! The UK has more opportunities to grow faster than it has had in front of it for decades. Don’t look back at today and think, “I wish I had seized the day”. The time for waiting is over. Today will be the past and your great historic past is for the making now!
Business Leaders Need To Cut Their Cloth Accordingly
George Osborne said prior to the Brexit Vote on the 23rd June 2016 that if the UK voted to leave the European Union EU, it would have to cut its cloth accordingly.
Well according to economic data so far, the UK has a stable economic platform to launch into strong business growth actions, despite the uncertainty of an impending presidential election in America.
Are there huge economic uncertainties just now?
Of course! When haven’t there been significant uncertainties for business? However, should we wait before investing time and money in our future? Absolutely not! This is the time for sowing the seeds of your future success. Businesses in the UK have so many opportunities for growth.
Where are the growth opportunities ?
Well have you looked properly! They are there. Your competitors may have spotted them. Look and you shall find!
Too much noise and not enough action!
Everybody is busy, but being busy doesn’t mean to say you’re in the growth business. Are you working hard but standing still? Have you got the talent, the assets and the ambition but not the results you’d hoped for?
The UK was built on innovation and hard graft, but in the recent past, we’ve been grafting too much and not innovating enough. The UK’s business leaders need to think smarter, not just work harder.
I could do with some help here mate!
Talk is cheap! I hear you! However, talking with like minded innovators who want to move to the action phase quickly might produce new business growth for your company.
Do most business leaders want the same thing – growth? Presumably none want to down-size. Many are happy to stay the same, though few businesses can survive by staying the same.
Many of your peers are happy to share ways to overcome barriers to business survival and business growth. No one person knows it all and even if they did, what they learnt would soon be out of date. Unless you keep up to date with best practices and evolving methods of working, you are going backwards behind competitors.
Sometimes we need to be inspired by the actions of others
Olympic competitors are inspired by the achievements of other Olympians. They may be at the top of their game, but they can still be inspired by the success of their peers.
Balanced Enterprise Risk Perspective
Are you taking too little or too much risk? Poor business performance can come from too much, or too little risk.
Getting access to the horse’s mouth
If you don’t know – ask for free! It is highly unlikely that your business problems are totally unique. They might be unusual and have a different impact on your business, but the solution to your business problems have almost certainly already been found at another business somewhere in the world.
It is important to get risk into the right perspective. If you don’t know enough about your enterprise risks, it is possible that you are being overly cautious. Alternatively you might be acting (or not acting) recklessly, and are on the edge of catastrophic disaster, due to lack of risk knowledge. Are you deliberately not asking questions cause you might not like the answers?
