So many people want their businesses to be successful. They want to get the big order or the big contract.
The thing people don’t always think about is whether they are prepared for “success”.
What happens if you make widgets and you are accustomed to selling 100 widgets a month and all of a sudden you get an order for 100,000 widgets? Can you get them manufactured? Can you afford the manufacturing costs? What if the buyer takes 90 days to pay? Do you have the cash flow to handle these type of situations?
What if you are accustomed to working in anonymity? Are you prepared for the publicity that might come with success? What about the scrutiny?
Success is great…except when it’s not
Be careful what you wish for, you might get it!
Have a great day!
