Your attitude in your business, your attitude to your business is everything.

Attitude is the theme of this week’s I Hate Numbers podcast. In this week’s podcast I look at what attitude is, and why it’s such a big deal in your business.

Business or hobby

Firstly, what’s a business?  Business is where you have an activity where making money, making profit is part of the deal.

An official definition of a business is the activity of making one’s living or making money by producing or buying and selling products.

hobby , on the other hand is a regular activity done for enjoyment, typically during one’s leisure time, not professionally and not for pay.

Making money, profit and cash in the bank has to feature and your numbers, your best friend in business, that won’t lie to you plays a massive part.Listen to find out more

What is attitude

When we hear the word attitude, images of anger, happiness sadness appear. Whether we take things seriously of whether we take them lightly.

Your attitude, mindset if you prefer is about your thoughts about the world.  It’s about your behaviour, your assumptions.  You attitude is about how you apply those in your business is actually key to how your business grows, develops, sustains, and prospers.

Your approach to your business , whether you take it seriously or not is important. It will determine whether your business survives, will shape how you deal with those circumstances that you may feel are outside of your control.  It shapes how you deal with people that may not be the most comfortable to deal with.

Furthermore. one size does not fit all.  By the same token one approach doesn’t suit all situations

Your business growth

This is not an option. Your definition of growth may vary, but absolutely you’ve got to see growth as a continuum. If you do not grow your business, then you will end up going backwards in your business.

Customers will leave you. Nobody keeps customers for life. Costs will change competition, intensifies regulations and legislation changes all the time. So change is a constant part of our business lives. So looking to grow your business to develop your business is an absolute necessity, not, it would be nice to have.


In conclusion, your business is there to serve your customers well, for you to enjoy what you’re doing, to give you the time to spend with your family, provide yourself with a decent living. But fundamentally is that also to make money.  Your mindset and attitude is absolutely vital for you taking your business seriously and for growth.   Contact us to find out more.
