🌳The Three D’s to Avoid as an Entrepreneur 

 

When you make a mistake, own up to it.

Don’t 

🏓Dodge

🏓Deflect 

🏓Disburden

Yourself from failures in your business.

You must learn to take responsibility for customer dissatisfaction and complaints in your enterprise.

If you fail to deliver as promised, don’t start blaming the delivery office. If you fail to meet up with an order don’t start blaming the product or the non existent clerk.

Don’t start blaming sources outside yourself. Dodging from your mistakes because you want to appear blameless will not help your brand’s image or reputation, instead it will soil it.

Be Accountable. 

Don’t pretend to know it all when you truly don’t!

A lot of business owners have fallen into traps set by their customers. Your customers are watching you and sometimes they ask you questions they already have answers to, just to know what you will say. In an attempt to appear ‘Woke’ some lie to their customers and lose them forever.

Be honest enough to say ‘I’m not sure ma’am’ or ‘Let me get back to you on that sir’. Don’t cover up with ‘Someone said….’

Your customers will appreciate this more than your lies, excuses and deflections.

 

As an entrepreneur you must learn to take responsibility for the results of any business decision in your organization. 

 

Own up to your weaknesses and convert them to strengths.

Be Accountable!

🥂To your continued business success and growth!
