Every day, do something to build your business

Every day, do something to build your business

As a solopreneur, it’s so easy to sucked into working on what’s in front right now rather than what will help you build the business you want to have later.  Always “firestomping” may keep the business from burning down but probably won’t help you get ahead.  A certain amount of time to crank out some tasks is really important, but make sure to spend time every day doing something to create, grow and build the business you dream of.

What are these activities?  They vary from business to business, but here’s some ideas to get you thinking:

  • Building your community of people interested in what you offer.  This includes social media, real life and your newsletter.
  • Planning your next projects and long-term projects
  • Brainstorming
  • Educating yourself
  • Creating new products or services to sell

That’s just a few of the things you could be doing to build your business.  What else do you do to build your business?  How often?  Leave a comment and let me know.


  1. I love this. I usually get so caught up in the building of the business that I have to be stringent on actually conducting my business!

      Thanks Cindy! It can be tough to balance the building and conducting – I sometimes don’t spend enough time building.

  2. How true this is. I find throwing some keywords in “Google Alerts” stimulates my brain every time they show up in my inbox.

    That’s a good one Mike! I think it’s really helpful to be feeding my brain “food for inspiration” regularly.
