How To Deal With Competition As A Small Business Owner

How to deal with competition in your business

Hey hey hey!

How are you? I am doing pretty well, thanks for asking!

I want to have with my aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners out there.

It was sparked by a conversation I had last week with one of my clients.

She has been in business for a while. She has a committed clientele who values her work and she now is in a position where she is able to offer better quality to her customers, due to all the support she has been receiving!

As I am listening to her share her story, I am like, “Okay. What is the problem?”

She stated that she is now noticing that other people want to start their own business.

The same business that she has spent years developing.

Not only do they want to start their own business but, many people are coming to her for advice and she doesn’t feel comfortable sharing the information that she had to learn on her own.

Being as though she is from a small city, she does not know how to treat the competition when they come to her for advice on how to start their business.

Hearing her story made me think back and see if I ever had this feeling in me.

And yup. I sure did!

I remember when I first opened up my mobile food cart.

I was the only Black owned mobile food cart owner in the City of Wilmington.

5 Questions to Support You in Identifying Your Life’s Purpose

11.23

Happy Monday!

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to host a “Breakfast and Visions” with a group of dope Black entrepreneurs and community leaders from the city of Wilmington, De.

I love hosting those type of events because it gives me the opportunity to support dope people in getting clear about what it is that they want to accomplish in their life and in their business.

I love it!

The conversations that we had during our transformational session, is what inspired this week’s blog post.

I know most of you who read my content are ready to live life on your own terms.

You want to do what you want, when you want.

You want to travel the world, start businesses, give back to your community, and live in peace!

I feel you.

I am with you.

For you to obtain the lifestyle you want, it is important for you to get clear on your Personal Mission Statement .

I am sure if you have worked for any organization, you have heard of a mission statement. It the statement that describes what the organization is about that you are associated with.

Your Personal Mission Statement is bigger than that.

Getting clear on your Personal Mission Statement will support you in making decisions in your life that align with your purpose and core values.

What is a Personal Mission Statement?

Your Personal Mission Statement describes 3 things

  1. who you are
  2. what you do
  3. why you do it

Your Personal Mission Statement helps you to identify your purpose in your life!

Here are 5 questions that you can ask yourself to support you in developing your Personal Mission Statement:

  1. What are my core values?
  2. Who do I serve?
  3. How do I make their lives better?
  4. What do I want to accomplish in my life?
  5. What am I passionate about?

Please remember when developing your Personal Mission Statement:

  • You must write It down
  • It should be no more than 2 sentences.
  • This is the first step in manifesting the life you desire
  • Share your vision with others

Define Your “Why”: A Guide to Developing Your Purpose

Your “Why?” is the most important definition you can have.

When I first started to develop this message, my focus was going to be solely on helping entrepreneurs discover their “Why?” in business.

However, my little voice spoke to me and said,

“Nette, this message is not for the business owner, it is for the common man (woman lol).”

So I am expanding the word.

Let me be clear when I say, your WHY equates to your PURPOSE and there is PURPOSE in everything that you do!

Have you ever asked yourself why were you born?

Can you imagine God responding to you and saying,

“My child, I made you to work, pay bills and to also take care of your children for at least 18 years, if you decide to have them. Then you can retire at 75 and experience the good life.”

I guarantee you, that is not the response you would get.

Today I want to share 5 reasons why your why is important and end with 10 questions that will support you in developing your purpose!

Your why is important because

  1. Your WHY ignites your journey. Your why lets you know the direction in which you should go, when moving forward with in life and business
  2. Your WHY keeps you going when you want to give up!
  3. Your WHY keeps you focused
  4. Your WHY helps you to stay connected
  5. It is bigger than you!

Here are 10 questions that you can use to support you in developing your PURPOSE?

  1. When you step in the room, who and what is it that you represent?
  2. What is your ideal dream job?
  3. What makes you angry (DIG DEEP)?
  4. What is your ideal career?
  5. Who is depending on you?
  6. What causes are you passionate about?
  7. In what ways do you help people?
  8. In what ways do people depend on you?
  9. What type of life did you dream about when you were younger?
  10. If you could change anything in the world, what would it be?

BONUS: Imagine you had a bottle with a genie in it, and you were granted unlimited wishes. What would you wish for to make your life and humanity better?
