Managing a Small Business is no walk in the park. The hardest thing, apart from working and promoting your business, can be keeping up the motivation to work, day in and day out.
Since you don’t have a boss that checks on your progress and since you don’t really have any year-end appraisals or year-end bonus to work for, often finding the motivation to work, especially if you are working from home, can be very difficult.
People find motivation in many things, it could be the potential earnings you are going to make. Some can find it by feeling that they actually fulfilling their life goal. But having worked and analysed many small businesses, we have come to the conclusion that the strongest motivator is in fact external and by this we mean someone or something that monitors and encourages you to do better.
It could be in the form of a boss as mentioned earlier, a bonus or a positive appraisal. These motivators work well within the employee sectors, but what if you are a business owner? What can motivate you? After all, you don’t want to have a boss, and giving yourself positive year end appraisals is not very fruitful (some may disagree :)) The fact is , that we need something or someone to tell us when we are doing well, how we progress and where we’re behind.
Here comes the huge advantage of using a Small Business Management Software, apart from running your business, it can also act as your “boss” as a great and constant motivator. It will show you when you are doing well, if you are behind, where you need to improve. The best thing about using this kind of motivator is that it is completely free of any politics and other interests, it has purely your best in “mind”.
Using a Business Software, can do wonders to your motivation. All you need to do, is open it up and see how you are doing at any stage of your work 24/7 seven days a week.
