Do we stagnate or do we grow?
This is something I have been thinking about for awhile now...
Specifically the industry I am predominantly in which is nails and beauty. As a nail supplier providing one of the best brands around, I am often faced with a plethora of other things readily available on he market that I need to compete with daily.
The question is just because it’s always been done that way, do I need to follow?
I am not convinced that I need to, I do however feel I need to find my own path to being my authentic self in business.
Do I know the answer....no I bloody don’t, if I did I would be sitting somewhere drinking cocktails rather than trying to figure this stuff out.
My belief is that change is inevitable...we either grow or stagnate. As nail techs we can’t keep doing things the same way and expect different results. Times are changing, education is changing and the way we do business is changing.
I think we either need to jump on board 100% and embrace change in how we do business, promotion etc or we stay behind and become dinosaurs. This applies to any business not just mine, to put ourselves out there is damn scary, but what is the alternative...
As a person that finds change difficult and pretty scary, it is something I have learnt to embrace over the last few years, especially taking over this brand. It was either grow and accept change or sink. I for one did not want to sink😉
The information and lessons I have personally learnt in the last few months have taught me to look outside the box because the view might be better there😀
