Are you a Business Owner? – Here are 10 great questions to ask yourself

Business Owner

As a business owner you may want to ask yourself these 10 great questions. Over the last 11 years as a business coach I often find myself asking them of clients and other business owners I meet. So ask yourself….

1. Customer base

Ask yourself: If I just bought this company, how would I sell more/expand what I sell to this customer base?

2. Cash
Ask yourself: If I could invest this cash in any one part of this business/niche/product line for the biggest cumulative return/profit over the next 5 years, where would I invest it all?

3. Market Leadership
Ask yourself: To remain the market leader for the next 25 years, where should I invest my time and company’s resources right now?

4. Reputation
Ask yourself: What can I do to double the strength of our current reputation, within the next 6 months?

5. Momentum
Ask yourself: What’s working well right now and how can I keep it working well?

6. Key Staff
Ask yourself: Who are the 5 key people in my organization and what game/plan can I create with them so they’ll stick around for a long time?

7. Systems
Ask yourself: What systems work so well that we take them for granted? How could we improve them?

8. Responsiveness
Ask yourself: How quickly and completely do we respond to changes in our customers, market, technology, staff needs or economic conditions?

9. Intellectual Property
Ask yourself: What do we have, IP-wise, that just isn’t being as leveraged as it could be?

10. The X Factor
Ask yourself: What do we have that’s very, very special and that we could really maximize, just for the pleasure of it?
