Stay true to your mission

All the brand giants have stayed true to their original mission. PEAK MILK:it’s in you . GUINNESS:reach for greatness. GLOBACOM:with pride,unlimited . Fufatrade: Sell instantly Buy Smartly. An enduring mission is what makes a brand so well known and loved. When consumers know what a company represents and is ultimately trying to achieve, it helps them make fast purchasing decisions when the need arises. Remember why you got into this work in the first place – what problem does your product or service solve?

Maintain a steadfast hiring process

You know those values and attributes that you always hired on, right back at the beginning? They’re just as important now and for moving forward into the future. Clarify and document your criteria then use this information for recruitment, hiring, and on-boarding. Attract and induct the right people – those who will wholeheartedly carry your vision and mission forward as the company scales. Skills are important, of course, but they can be taught. Attitudes, values, and outlook often can’t.

Be present for your staff

As your business grows, it can be tempting to take a lot more time out of the office and keep the day-to-day operations running at much further than arm’s length. Whilst it’s great to be able to have more flexibility (and an important example to set for your staff), it’s critical to maintain an active role in the business. No one will have the same level of passion as you. No one will care quite as much either. Maintain a collaborative culture by keeping your door open and focus on the mantra of “continuous improvement” to ensure a constantly evolving, customer-centric approach which is set as an example from the top.

Create processes

It’s a boring and tedious task, but logging processes saves so much time in the long run and frees team members up from having to endlessly train new staff. It also means that if someone’s on holiday or unexpectedly sick, another employee can use the relevant process documents to get the job done. You won’t end up relying on “Sarah from Operations” who isn’t in one day and, unfortunately, is the only person who truly understands the inner workings of every system, password, and protocol. Document all of your instructions, folder locations, helpful links, training videos, images, company jargon, and contact details. That way, you’ll never have to shout Chai!😂

Slow down and chill out

Yes, you’re a successful go-getter but balancing this energy with quiet consideration and patience is what sorts the wheat from the chaff when it comes to sustainable entrepreneurship. Reach out to mentors, reflect on decisions, avoid getting “shiny object syndrome” (not every opportunity is a good one!), and meditate more when life throws you a less than pleasant curveball.

Keep communication channels open

Soon, gone will be the days where you could shout across the office when you needed to communicate. As departments give birth to extra departments, you’ll find that teams find it harder to stay connected with one another. It’s critical to set company-wide objectives as well as departmental ones, so that everyone is singing from the same hymn sheet. It’s also important to encourage goal progress updates, so that teams stay accountable and don’t lose track of the common goal.

Invest in marketing
