In life, communication becomes the by-laws humans live by. It’s a method used to understand, integrate and to listen to various voices without any biases. In a relationship or at work communication is key to success; it puts away differences and avoids unnecessary misunderstandings that could result in the lack of productivity and efficiency.

Therefore, this same concept applies with a start-up, a start-up usually consist of a small number of employees or better yet team members. Usually, it’s the people we trust the most and the pivotal structure in ensuring the success of any Start-Up. As the founder, it becomes your responsibility to create an ambiance, which allows the freedom of communication and understanding.

2. Don’t Allow Everyone To Make Decisions In The Terms Of Accounting.

Even though communication is a key point in progress, finances should be between two parties. The concept of too many cooks’ ruins the soup applies in this delicate situation. As in the beginning of a start-up, financial decisions become important factors that decides the fate of your start-up for the next 3-4 years, hence making the right call at the right time becomes necessary.

Therefore, instead of involving the whole team in a financial decision, it would be best if things were kept simple between you and your accountant. This allows you to keep an open mind and reduces the stress of influence in the finance department in making any decisions. Furthermore, this method avoids conflict of interest among any parties.

For a Start-Up to grow and prosper, the accounting team should be the secret weapon used to conquer.

3. Keep A Tracking Method For Logistics.

In the start of an organization, resources may be scarce and keeping track of all the incoming and outgoing logistics may proof to be a challenge. In the 80’s bookkeepers and secretaries used to handle the noting down and the tagging of all logistics, however often time human errors proved to be greater. This has led to many losses, misunderstandings, disappointments and demises of progressive start-ups in the past.

However, over the years, technology has become better with the formation of apps and tools that help track your logistics in your office. You will be able to organize all your logistics, from the borrowed to the bought and to the sold, reducing your risks of running into any human error.

Furthermore, this reduces the burden on your team, which could utilize this time in an efficient manner. Why use unnecessary labor if you have technology to make your life easier.

4. Be a Delegation Master.

In a company, the beginning is as extreme as walking through a tornado. However having a team isn’t as easy as being a solo-prenuer. As a solo-prenuer you’re entirely responsible for yourself, you aren’t in the jeopardy of deciding over others lives or their livelihood hence it takes the stress out of running your own business.

For any entrepreneur, in the start, the ability to trust and the ability to delegate would seem to be a challenge. This is because we are used to hovering over everyone and having a hands on approach. However, delegation of tasks and keeping track of them is a necessary factor as it shows the trust you put in your team as well as allows you to focus on far more important tasks.

“It’s all about the delegation” has become the motto many live by as a way to understand the importance of teamwork and sustainability.

It’s easier said than done, starting out in a field often times becomes a challenge however with these tips it definitely becomes easier to organize your Start-Up as well as to encourage it to a greater success and expand its potential.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
