Hey there, craftpreneurs! Welcome back to the Makers Mean Business podcast with yours truly, Parker. Today, we’re diving into some deep waters as we unpack crucial lessons that have shaped my journey as a business owner.

Makers Mean Business Season 3 Episode 4

1. Business Mindset

First off, let’s talk mindset. Your internal chatter, the way you speak to yourself—powerful, right? It’s a make or break game. Trust me, I’ve been there, fluctuating between invincible and vulnerable. But here’s the kicker: you control that narrative. So, swap out criticism for solutions, and watch the magic unfold.

2. Flexibility

Next up, flexibility. As a small business owner, adaptability is your secret weapon. Embrace change, pivot when needed, and watch your business thrive amidst the chaos. Remember, what worked in the past might not cut it today. Stay nimble, stay ahead.

3. Process and Procedures

Now, onto processes and procedures. I’m all about lists, checklists, and more lists. Think of them as your business’s GPS—keeping you on track, ensuring nothing slips through the cracks. Plus, when growth comes knocking, having documented procedures makes delegation a breeze.

4. Quality Control

Quality control—a non-negotiable. Whether you’re a one-person show or a growing team, maintaining standards is key. Your reputation hinges on it. So, tighten those reins, uphold excellence, and watch your business soar.

5. Proactivity

Last but not least, proactivity. Control the narrative, folks. Don’t wait for fires to ignite—install sprinklers. Address issues head-on, be transparent with your community, and watch trust blossom. Reactive mode? Not your style. Stay ahead, stay proactive.
