Do you own a glamping business or are you dreaming of one day owning one? Have you wondered what makes one business owner more successful than another in this industry?
I have been working with industrious glamping business entrepreneurs for many years now and recently had an opportunity to review the characteristics of each of them to figure out what their secrets for success were. These are not to be ignored, as from experience I have seen some succeed where others have failed and the only difference has been that one demonstrates these skills while the others do not.
So how many of these success accelerator factors do you have?
You Don’t Hold Your Cards Too Close To Your Chest
If you are serious about your business and where you want to be in the future then you will talk about it to family, friends, strangers at a party and other businesses you may want to work with. This is one of the best ways to set goals and be held accountable by the people you meet and it has a real impact on how quickly business ideas grow and develop.
You Invite Feedback Then Listen And Act Upon It
You understand this is a great way of floating your ideas with your future customers and understanding the perspective of others. This is a brave thing to do as you might not always like the response, but nevertheless, it is essential, especially if you implement everything you discover.
You’re Not Afraid To Invest In Yourself
Understanding yourself and where your strengths are is vital. However, even more vital is figuring out where you might need to invest in help for you and your business. This might mean outsourcing your website design, getting help with accounting, or developing expert hospitality marketing concepts to help your business gain strength and grow. Whatever it is, you are not afraid to move forward with it as you understand it will bring future business growth and revenue.
You’ve Mastered Your Ability To Take Calculated Risks
Small business owners are some of the worlds most wonderfully intelligent, dedicated innovators who are not afraid to research, seek advice, take chances and consider the benefits of calculated risks. If you want to be successful in business then you need to evaluate your system for considering these types of decisions as mastering it will help every element of what you do.
You Know How To Work Hard
You eat, sleep and breathe your business and you are not afraid to work hard. But that’s ok as being consumed by what you do makes you realise you wouldn’t want to do anything else.
You Enjoy Being Unconventional
The greatest rewards come from taking the unconventional path where few others have been before. This allows you to perfect your unique business offer and really stand out from the crowd when others simply blend into the background.
