What do kittens and business decisions have in common?
Last Saturday it was international cat day and we considered doing a social media post about it, but then I paused and gave it some thought. Surely every day is international cat day! 🙂
Joking and cuteness aside, whilst cats are gorgeous and cuddly they cost money and require attention. Sadly many people, through bad decision-making, get a kitten but soon realise they can’t look after it, or afford its upkeep.
Lothian cat rescue, a charity which rehomes approximately 1,000 abandoned and unwanted cats a year, is a shelter where I got my two feline friends from. I recall the first cat we adopted about eight years ago. It was lovely playing with Sophie, and showing her around the house, but within a couple of days, the novelty had worn off. Suddenly, I was responsible for something that depended on me, which meant holidays required a bit more planning. Furthermore, for the first 2 weeks you have a litter tray to clean out until the cat gets used to you and your home. I hadn’t given that much thought at the time, but it soon becomes the only thing you think about…
Every day we make decisions that are not compatible with our lives or our financial circumstances, yet we continue making them
We will often make wrong choices in our business too, but what if we could make the right decision, or at least minimise the mistakes… Surely that would be welcomed!
What if we could make a decision that was right for our personal finances, families, and our business?
The very process of making a decision is the most crucial aspect to your business success, rather than the strategy you adopt
In Successful Business Minds I explore the attitudes and decision making of successful business owners, whilst also sharing my own, and our clients, mistakes. The top takeaway from this popular book, is that making the right decision that suits you personally is the key to success and I show you how you can do that.
You may have a similar business to others in your industry and you will all share the highs of a sale, or the lows of a tax bill, but you will each have different financial circumstances and needs.
