5 reasons why entrepreneurs struggle to scale up their business

Posted on March 31, 2020

Scaling up a business requires an immense amount of leadership abilities. It could be buying new assets or acquire a new facility or hiring new staff. All the above decisions require a substantial amount of homework and an optimistic judgmental view. Here are the five struggles that every entrepreneur face while scaling the business:

Identifying the point of scalability:

First and foremost, market demand could be dynamic, and therefore predicting the accurate point of scalability is tricky. There is a time when every business has to widen the bandwidth to cater to the customers on the basis of estimated future demand. The challenge is to understand that the risen demand is short term or long term. Because if it is the short term that scaling up may not be a good idea in the long run. The decision making for this phase requires an enormous amount of research and careful analysis to avoid any understock or overstock situation.

Factors associated with scalability

Most of the time it is insightful to see that the scalability is influenced by other factors such as government policies and regulations, economic factors, and other social and political factors. Since the entrepreneur has to make a decision while taking care of all the above factors, reliable research and feedback are required from the concerned team. This means other than making the top-level decision; an appropriate team has to be elected who help in adherence to all the external factors as well as address all the requirements. Finding such a reliable and competent team could be a challenge. 

Micromanagement in the period of crises:

The unforeseen emergencies are part of the business lifecycle; however, all the effective management drains out in the period of crisis, just like what we are going through COVID-19 in 2020. Such a period requires making the right decision with the instant mindset to act quickly and intellectually. Every entrepreneur directly or indirectly has to face such a situation. Coming across these challenges in the dire situation is not risk-free, but at the same time, it is the best time to prove your leadership skills and the entrepreneur mindset. 

Convincing self  and everyone about scalability:

An organization is not a solo venture. Everyone whether external or internal parties who contribute to the growth of the organization has to be taken into account for any decision of scaling up a business. It is not possible to successfully implement any business decision and make things work unless you are self-convinced about the idea of scaling up. Further,  if you have a small team, scaling up might fail without discussing the idea with the team. Therefore, after taking into account the point of view of everyone who is partnering in your success and allowing them to be convinced about the idea of scaling up could be a challenge. Further, if we see this from another perspective, it is quite evident that such hurdles are the ways to make a plan viable and acceptable as per the industry standards.

Financial options for expansion: 

Businesses could either be self-funded or externally funded, but most of the time, the investors make their hard cash investment in a reliable business. To scale a business, even the self-funded business might require the support of an angel investor. The preeminent challenge a business person might face is gaining investor’s trust and making them believe in you as an entrepreneur. Find people in personal or professional networks; it could be a time taking process; however, in the end, it will be fruitful. There will be nine NOs out of 10, but that is worth it if you get even a single angel investor. Another challenge on the financial front is the way you represent your business proposal and future viability to the investor and share your promising vision with them. 


Scaling a business is the hardest part of building a business and it needs to be done with extreme thoughtfulness and careful monitoring. It is because, while scaling a business every element is impacted and all the areas are involved. So, it is very important to understand the technical, social, economic and financial impacts on scaling up a business. 


Guide your team with the precautionary measures to prevent covid-19

Posted on March 27, 2020

While Covid-19 is the talk of the town and it has impacted everyone globally, it's better to isolate and stay at home. According to a professor at the University of Arizona, fingers might pick up the microbe, which could lead to covid-19. Soft fabric can hold only 1% of the virus; however, steel can take up to 70% of the virus. Novel Coronavirus is new to everyone, even the scientist, so we must not take the risk of judging if it will stay on the surface or not.

But, once in a while, one has to move out to stock up the groceries and medication needs. As an entrepreneur, you must educate your team members about the hygiene and suggestions whenever they step out of their homes. For instance, in case you or any of your team members go to the pharmacy or for any other emergency reasons, here are the hygiene tips that must be considered and precautions that should be taken care of. Share these steps with them to make them aware of the best ways to prevent themselves from the adverse effects of covid-19:

Before you move out:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly with the effective handwash, at least for 20 seconds, cleaning every part of it. 
  • Consider using a case for all the items you carry, such as phone, credit card, keys, and anything you hold in hand. 
  • Remember to sanitize even the case or carrier.
  • Sanitize your hands and wear gloves that are clean and unused and, if used, then well- disinfected.
  • Wear full sleeves, T-shirts and full pants. Moreover, cover your head. 
  • If you are going by car, make sure the car steering is sanitized. 

After you are back:
You cannot determine how you may be carrying the virus. Therefore, prepare yourself for not taking the items bought straight away into the home. 

  • Keep a rack or box at the entrance of your home. Anything you bought from the market should be left out for at least 24 hours to avoid any virus within the house except the perishable items.
  • Remove the gloves and wash your hands. Throw away the disposable gloves well- wrapped. If not disposable, keep it isolated and for disinfection. 
  • Clothes should be washed immediately. Once you are back it is recommended to wash your clothes with the warm water using detergent. 
  • Finally, it is recommended to follow the measures that are suggested by a high authority such as WHO rather than falling into the trap of social media baseless suggestions.  



Other than sharing these practical tactics do not just assume the insecurities of employees rather address the emotional concerns they are facing in this downtime. Sometimes, listening is enough to make someone feel about being recognized. Moreover, you can hold a virtual group and one to one meetings as you and your employees need to accept the brutal reality as well as stay motivated for the upcoming challenges.

The Irony of the coronavirus is that only you can protect yourself and others. It's all about taking 100% responsibility for yourself and society. No matter what it takes, we have to make sure that if we feel that we are infected, or anyone who is impacted has been in close contact with you, then you have to self-quarantine to watch your health. You must keep your team updated with these precautions after all sharing is caring, and every entrepreneur should inspire its team to healthy living.

As there is a downturn, the angel investors may not invest at the level as we usually expect. People not investing doesn’t mean that there is some problem with your idea, but it’s all about the global impact of this pandemic problem. Find alternate ways to raise funds and be very cautious about spending. Although, irrespective of this situation, you must be very careful while maintaining the cash flow. However, you have to be over-attentive and conscious as you acquire any deal. 

Reflect within:

Before this crisis existed, there was a time when every entrepreneur reveals the reason for not performing well is short of time.

After all, the team plays a prime role in the future of a business. 

 

Covid -19 will leave the world with many unanswered questions such as will there be a decrease in the number of customers in the business you are in, how will the payment cycle be impacted? Will this be a temporary blip or a long term recession and so on. Look at the trends in the past and find a workaround about this, but do not panic. Being an entrepreneur, the first lesson we all learn is taking risks and business survival with uncertainty. Be optimistic. Things will fall in place at the right time. 

Entrepreneurs guide to fight with Covid-19

Posted on March 20, 2020

 

No doubt, the economy has shaken by the effects of this pandemic disease. It looks quite similar to the SARS pandemic in 2002, and people might feel that this is the end of the world. But it's not the time to give up; rather, it's the period of transformation. With every darkest period comes a ray of new sunshine that brings better opportunities and ways to lead a happy life. Here are five things you can to prepare yourself for this affliction period:

Avoid travels:

There is nothing essential for you to then your health. Take advantage of the digital world. Afterall, digitalization is the future. Business meetings are secondary, and you are the pre-eminent element of the whole process of running a successful business. Scientists are already working hard to create antivirals and vaccines. However, as of now, we have to take 100% responsibility for self-care as well as the welfare of the neighbouring communities. 

Don't believe every rumour:

It's a good idea to be aware of what is going around and keep yourself well-versed with all the precautionary measures; however, many times we encounter exaggerated hype about what is going on in the market. We need to be patient in this crisis and tackle everything with maturity. Although it's human nature that once we hear anything negative, we tend to forget the ground reality and take action based on fallacious information. While this should not be the case as only the proven facts and trusted sources of information must be heard. We have to make sure that neither we panic nor let the people around us fall into the trap of incorrect information. Entrepreneurs are to enlighten people's life, so spread the genuine information that can be helpful for everyone. 

 Proper sleep:

Lack of adequate sleep leads to a lack of a protein called cytokines, which may further lead to an ineffective immune system and more prone to infections. Other than that, since Corona talks are in the air, it sometimes causes excessive stress and overthinking. For instance, even a little bit of cough and headache makes one worry that it might be corona but which may not be accurate. Proper sleep leads to physical and mental rejuvenation, which is the ultimate way to get rid of stress and anxiety. Further, as an entrepreneur, you are worried about the business losses you may face. Understand this, hardship is the part of every business, and this time it's a pandemic disease. This is not the end of the world, and you need to take proper rest to keep yourself calm.

Isolate and work

Work from home is encouraged, and everyone is aware of the importance of social distancing. It seems as if covid-19 will leave long term effects on the economy, and as an entrepreneur, it's your call to take steps to make it favourable for yourself and to the world. For instance, work from home for the employees reduces companies' cost of infrastructure. Try to see the greener side of the situation, if not all, something or the other could be favourable. 

 Proper diet:

As we are aware, it is recommended to strengthen the immune system as that is the only way to protect yourself from this life-endangering disease. A proper diet boosts your energy level and acts as a shield to this covid-19. It's all about intaking the food that creates goods bacteria and can help to fight the harmful bacteria within the digestive system. 

Practice yoga and mindfulness:

Finally, the gyms are locked down, and you cannot go in the public place, but one thing you can do while you isolate is yoga and mindfulness. Practicing meditation is an eyeopener. It revives you from within, and yoga is the best exercise in this distressing situation. You can know more about yoga practicing and mindfulness by having a quick conversation with an expert.

How to deal with covid-19 as an entrepreneur? 

Posted on March 17, 2020

  

Covid-19 is in the air, and everyone is scared of what would be the hellish impact on the world. In this globally emerging virus where everyone is running off at the mouth about the sceptical consequences of covid-19, do you know who can hold the faith for people to stay peaceful within and focus on the cure rather than panic? Well! The person who is a leader within will get up and stay upright to help people understand the phenomenon and keep everyone hopeful. As an entrepreneur, you are the one who can do this:  

Take the charge: In this current situation, where everyone is worried about the future and deals with the coronavirus, it’s time to show your leadership as an entrepreneur. It’s your responsibility as a leader to act optimistically. The point is leadership can be easily exhibited in the usual circumstances. Everyone is a leader in themselves; however, the true leader survives, retains the confidence and inspires others in the organization to stay calm and act positively. The fact is no fear can stop you from being an opportunist if you really see the positive side of everything. Therefore, talk to the people, connect virtually either on social media or your business network, to build their hope and take this phase as a temporary period of this wonderful life.  

Open the doors inwards: Start with yourself. If you are fearful and anxious about the present situation, think and let your mental system decide if you are really terrified or it’s the information from the world that is making you feel afraid. As you will see inwards and refresh your own thoughts and positive energies, it might not be so messy as it seems. If you are an entrepreneur and thousands of people are working under your supervision, then they look up to you as their leader. To stay strong and confident for your team, you have to engage in your internal mental cultivation and practically understand the situation. Tell people in your organization, to come out with the ideas to spread the message of wellness. Ask them for self-analysis and, rather than looking for the information outside, peep inside and find the solutions.  

Bless everyone around you: What we can do is spread love and care while being in the place where we are. Because the world needs more positive energy at this crucial time of crisis. Not only once who are facing this problem directly, even we because indirectly we all are victims if we take it that way. So, it’s time to be the leader rather than acting as a sufferer. It’s a market slowdown, but there is something to do for society. This time its to show unity globally by blessing everyone and showing our support to the team members, peers, and everyone around us.

Stay away from Ganser syndrome: When there are talks about a disease all around the world, people with low emotional immunity find themselves in Ganser syndrome in which they mimic the behavior of mental sickness, which is not true. Just because everyone is talking about covid-19, the person suffering from Ganser syndrome believe that they are prone to the problem and anytime they can face the illness. As an entrepreneur, if there are such people in your team or anywhere around you, then it’s your take to make people mentally strong enough not to fall into the trap.  

Hold onto your perspective: Your perspective can help others restore the energies of people who are losing hope. At this point, it’s the entrepreneur who needs to stay strong and hold the steering steadily. Your perspective is to let people not negotiate with this challenge as it is temporary, which will pass on. Instead, you must show your people the power of holding onto the faith that you have in regular days.  

To encapsulate, World health organization and all the nations are taking the measures and spreading awareness of what can stop preventing the coronavirus. Few basic hygienes can help to avoid this hazardous virus-like avoid public gatherings, avoid traveling, wear the mask, washing hands every hour and so on. If these hygienes are followed religiously, we can at least stop the spread and consciously build an ecosystem to avoid the overwhelmed and frightened reactions of people around the world.

That means the business for which you are working hard will suffer because of your oversight and carefree behaviour towards your health. Many business people believe that a pill can cure the migraine, but they forget the fact that the relief is temporary. Consuming such medication, once in a while, is acceptable; nevertheless, a prolonged period of such migraine can result in other neurological issues that could be uncurable at times. Moreover, it will be a mentally and financially draining process to cure chronic problems.  

ADHD: It refers to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in which an entrepreneur loses their patience quite often. However, in some cases, it might have a positive effect; for instance, when there is an unforeseen situation and requires quick decisions, ADHD could prevent the entrepreneurs from freezing in a crisis and making a swift and appropriate decision. Whatever the case may be, ADHD can lead to hasty decisions sometimes without scrutinizing the facts and figures which are not apt for the future of the organization. In this case, meditation and some breathing techniques can be helpful to prevent you from ADHD.

In that case, you start feeling extremely sad and disheartened for every petty issues or any decisions that goes against you. Social isolation is one of the reasons for depression because even if the entrepreneurs socialize, it is either for sales or to make some crucial decisions. Furthermore, if someone tells you to get the real job because the plan is not working as of now, it is quite a spine chilling state of mind.  

The fact is, unless you read about such symptoms and phenomenon holding on to you, you are least bothered about yourself. You go with the flow without taking into account the problems mentioned above, even if it is in subconscious mind. Now that you realize that similar symptoms are visible or even if there is probability, get an external help without getting disheartened.

These are temporary phases that reside within an entrepreneur or any other person who is stressed. But, once recognized, must not be left untouched. It's better to give it a thought and talk to an expert to live a healthy life and steer your prosperous business in right direction.

Pomodoro technique for entrepreneurs: Headway to overcome distractions

Posted on March 3, 2020


There are numerous ways of raising efficiency at work, and most of them focus on time management. Many entrepreneurs struggle with handling distractions, especially social media, news, and other tasks in-hand. Pomodoro technique which suggests taking short breaks to accomplish a huge responsibility. It is based on research that talks about the importance of discontinuing a task for a while i.e., taking a short break and then retaining your attention back to normal.  

The name “POMODORO” means tomato, which was derived by Francesco Cirillo, who emphasized the fact of 25 minute work period, which is termed as the Pomodoro period can refrain from getting distracted every now and then. After every 25 minutes, one can take a break of 5 minutes or so. Later, after four consequent Pomodoro, one can take a long break. This long break should involve some physical movement to embrace the mind and regain the power of concentration.  

For every Pomodoro period i.e., 25 minutes of focus, you can keep a record of your progress and mark it in a diary. There are many online google extensions to follow this technique, which rings the alarm as soon as 25 minutes are over. With the extension, you can even block some websites that distract you, such as Facebook, Instagram, and so on. Short breaks keep your attention span for longer as compared to continued long hours of working. Further, it can be said that it is helpful for physical well-being, especially it reduces strain on your eyes.

Moving on to the benefits of POMODORO technique, it has more relevance when it comes to: Setting priorities: When you deploy this technique, it means you are putting on a timer for 25 minutes of uninterrupted attention focusing on the single achievable cornerstone. This means you have already set the priority and effortlessly can avoid multitasking, which could be otherwise onerous for an entrepreneur. Since, this is only for a short span of time that your brain can retain undisturbed and undisputable awareness, and that’s why POMODORO plays a vital role in achieving this state of mind. Better decision making: The highly productive entrepreneurs are involved in decision making and most of the times they have to account for almost every aspect of business. Therefore, during the breaks, brain gets a breather to think over, and the picture becomes more apparent. For instance, for any task, a follow up is effective only if it is conducted after a short gap between the implementation and the following step. This means the brain that suffers from decision making fatigue for working for an hour and hour can be relieved by interspersed breaks all along. Inflates efficiency while substituting the thought of spending hours at work: When a long term assignment is allotted or while handling a vital business deal, the focal point becomes the time spent on a project, which later becomes a gloomy vision. Owing to this fact, the results are overcast with exaggerated costs and not so productive outcomes in the long run. Although, as an entrepreneur, your vision is to maximize profits and minimize costs. Think about this: what if the criteria of gauging the progress is linked to the outcome and effective focus, even if it is a tiny bit shorter period of time. Moreover, the results will obviously be more fruitful and profitable. Nevertheless, it is not a hard and fast rule to take a five-minute break and have a 25 minute focus period. It can be modified depending on the nature of the task to be performed. The pre-eminent feature of this technique is to ameliorate the focus on a specific task at a time so that the results are phenomenally outstanding. Afterall, as an entrepreneur long term goals should not be undervalued by the indefinite short term fringe benefits and this technique can help you to grow, sustain and proper your venture.
