If you lead your business with honesty and integrity, you’re setting yourself up for a successful company. While building a scalable company isn’t for the faint of heart, it is doable and it can be done the right way. You just have to nurture your relationships and honor your previous agreements.
But sometimes other people don’t always hold their end of the bargain. One of the key lessons I share this week is how a $8k error made by a former supplier has made my company more money than I can count. One of the most important lessons you can learn from your mistakes is how to leverage your errors in order to grow. Owning up to your mistakes and recognizing ways to improve will help you create stronger relationships and scale your company. When you constantly evaluate what you’re doing and how you’re doing it, the room for error shrinks over time.
Not only can you leverage your mistakes but you can also leverage your relationships. Though, the number one thing you have to remember about leverage is that you have to have some weight on the other side of the scale. If you don’t have something to offer on your end, it’s a lead that goes nowhere and the other person can see that it’s not a mutual benefit for them. To learn more about how to leverage your mistakes, strengthen your relationships, and how technology can propel your growth and scalabilyt, tune into this week’s episode of Purpose Chasers!
