Ready for the harvest

‘Busy connecting, that’s me Charlie … it’s looking good.’

Ben and I had been discussing his latest steps toward independence from business with mum and dad and now the conversation has moved to the new found sales network.

With finance and the accountant now in place, Ben was happy to visualise how he could move forward with the existing order book and consolidation from existing personnel.

‘I really feel that our clients are behind us now Charlie, with their support we’ll be able to attract that new business we talked about and the next level of achievement.’

‘Thank you for your support. I was thinking though, how about taking a little time off, maybe a few days of golf now the business ground work has been done, is that ok by you?’

Ben, you’ve put in place the ABC, you simply now need a plan on reaching the XYZ …

‘Hang on, we’ve consolidated staff levels, revisited and qualified the supply chains plus we’ve ensured the existing customers are happier than this time last year, sales are positively going forward, and in addition … I’ve started networking’

A great start Ben. A great start and exactly my point. As we’ve already discussed, the beginning is the most important part of the work – you’ve engaged with purpose and now you need to keep at it, work at being the person you present to others, maintain the benchmark.

Business, just like networking needs cultivation, if you don’t tend to the business, business fails, just like the networking. Work on the contingency and then the holiday.

Play a little golf, of course. Use this time to clear the ‘mind lines’ for next season, be there for the upcoming ‘harvest’ Ben, follow through on the early promise …

Just like networking, show transparency by clearly defining your business intentions and the route from ABC to XYZ will become almost routine.

Almost.

I love the coast and in particular, the area in which I live, the North East of England. It's an uncomplicated life, for the past ten years I've been away from the 'big smoke' and I consider the decision to relocate my business to the country has been the best move of my career. I write and have a lifetime of experience in publishing and personal development, I consider myself a specialist in helping my clients with memoirs - that could be a biography, or simply bringing a diary to life. I tend not to advertise my business, word of mouth has always been kind so it's no surprise that I do spend a couple of days per week networking. Peer collaboration can be very rewarding. Therefore if you'd like to join me any Wednesday midday or Thursday morning coffee, please get in touch, I'd love to meet you and perhaps help in any way possible. Thank you for stopping by the website. engage, develop, grow ... with Go! charliekenny@live.co.uk
