- Communication is King, Jeff Vacek
Communication is king my friend! It is absolutely in my opinion what drives the success of your business over anything.
I don’t care how much traffic you get to your store, website, ecommerce store, blog, whatever…
…I don’t care how great your products are…
…if your business suffers from a lack of communication in even one little area, you’re screwed.
Recently I got REAL present again to this fact in one of my businesses.
What I got even MORE present to is how tough communication is to control when you’re dealing with multiple human beings when trying to launch a new product, service or business in general.
For weeks I had been trying to launch a new product and breakdowns in, or a lack of communication consistently stifled hitting the ‘go’ button.
And here’s the thing, I could say it wasn’t my fault. And when you look at it there was a particular person that either failed to communicate, didn’t communicate clearly, caused confusion, etc. (still not sure exactly but who cares).
BUT… I always take on things like I’m the one that screwed up. And I certainly didn’t complain about ‘what happened’.
Once I found out what happened:
1) I immediately took steps to rectify the communication breakdown. It got rectified in a matter of minutes and now we’re back track and have even changed to a better business model in the process.
2) I mentally noted what I can do different next time to make sure that never happens again.
And those 2 my friend are the 2 most important things. Get in communication, figure it out and get it sorted… And make sure you take the steps such that it doesn’t happen again.
But it all starts with you taking ownership no matter what. Always take ownership and be the better person in your business and in your life.
Thanks for reading!
