It’s not a secret that to be continually successful in business you must innovate.
Survival of the fittest means the most adaptable will win.
But what if you are a small organisation without the budget of larger ones to innovate?
This paralyses many business owners into doing nothing.
But there is a way…
Your business will run on some form of platform, and it’s likely to be some form of technology.
If you don’t have the budget to innovate, then you can invest your time into picking the technology to bet your future on.
Ride on the back of someone else’s innovation.
Pick the right pony.
Recently I had an interaction with someone in a business I own.
Recently we were making a major decision in MedRecruit for a very important leadership role in the recruitment team.
If you go to almost any personal development or business seminar, the presenters will share stories of failure leading to triumph.
It’s not a shop, it’s not online, it’s not Amazon or eBay or Trademe.
Survival isn’t necessary.
Is it meeting specification?
“You don’t choose the life of being an entrepreneur, it chooses you,” is something I found myself saying to a young entrepreneur the other day.
Dissatisfaction is a common state for entrepreneurs.
Fear of failure is a common reason many people don’t start things.
Failure is inevitable.
