Edit This Roundup: Blog Posts On Business Success

Updated: Jul 18, 2019

Have you ever heard a business owner say they don't want to be successful?

Of course not. That would be incredibly dumb to say, right?

Granted, what "success" looks like is different for everyone. It could mean making lots of money, having your brand recognized all over the world, ensuring that what you do for a living – at its core – truly helps people, or simply being in love with what you do.

At the end of the day, though, the desire to succeed is inside every business owner.

I started my writing and editing services company, Edit This® in 2014. At the time, I had nearly two decades of experience as a writer under my belt but didn't know the first thing about running a business. I just knew I had a gift for the written word, particularly creative storytelling, and could be a godsend for other business owners who recognized the importance of having a professional content writer and editor in their corner.

I'm not suggesting that, nearly five years later, I'm a master at small-business ownership. It's hard work, and I learn something new every day. But I do like helping others be better at what they do.

Here are a few blog posts I've written with tips on how to be better at business ownership:

It can be easy for a business owner to get a small taste of success and think that it's going to be smooth sailing the rest of the way. This blog post points out how we as business owners shouldn't rest on our laurels. Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO, is a perfect example of someone who lives and breathes that mindset.

All business owners should jump at the chance to do public speaking. Sadly, many of us are a tad shy about getting up in front of so many people. I've spent the last year ramping up my public speaking opportunities, and here are six things I've learned.

We live in an environment where competition is fierce, and it feels like everyone peddles the same products and services. How you differentiate yourself so that clients think of you first is critical. Here are a few tips that have worked for me over the years.

This is a self-explanatory blog title. Whether in life or business, you should never get into the habit of making assumptions. It will hurt your business. In this post, I dive into a specific situation where someone (not me) made an assumption, and it backfired.

I am a big believer that networking with other business owners helps you grow your business and build relationships. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. This blog post speaks to those of you who haven't quite jumped on the bandwagon.

Like I said at the beginning of this blog, I don't claim to know everything about small-business ownership. But it doesn't have to be rocket science, either. Start with the basics, and you'll go a long way. Read this blog post to learn more.

Calendars help us schedule our personal and business time properly. There are a ton of benefits, the biggest one being they help take the guesswork out of our busy lives by telling us where we need to be. All we need to do is use one.

The self-employed life can get hectic. Whether you are a one-person show or you have people working underneath you, it's your baby. You have a vested interest in making this work, and how things go — positive, negative, or indifferent — is a direct reflection of how you operate as the owner of the company.
