Building a better business

As an owner-managed business ourselves, we understand at Rowdens that to be in business takes courage and commitment.

It’s not easy. We're certain that at times you might question why you’re even doing it, particularly after the impact of Covid-19 and the effect that lockdowns have had on business.

But you’re here because you had a vision. You decided being in business was a better way to achieve that vision than working for someone else. And, you’re right; you just have to work on it.

You're an expert at what you do

Whatever your line of business, it's likely you're an expert in your field. This doesn’t mean you’re an expert at running your business however. It’s hard taking time out of working in your business to work on it. 

But doing this is essential for its success.

There’s no magical overnight solution to building a more successful business. It’s about taking small steps every day to get a bit better than the day before.

10 essential steps towards a more successful business

How should you go about building a better business?

We’ve broken it down into 10 essential steps (and will be expanding on all 10 in a series of upcoming blogs):

  • Get clear on exactly what it is that you want
  • Be open to change and new learning
  • Define where you are now (warts and all)
  • Make a plan
  • Get your organisational structure right
  • Be a better leader
  • Be held accountable by someone independent
  • Build strong networks
  • Monitor your progress
  • Keep your well of happiness full.

These are the 10 most important things you should be working on to ensure you achieve your goals. 

Small, incremental changes can have a massive effect on your success and we're to help. Please get in touch and we can make a start.
