These last weeks we have been talking about how to manage your business, keep it evolving, identify leaks, but now it is important that we talk from another perspective. What if my business started as a hobby? How can I take it to the next level? What I need? What I'm I missing of? How do I make it grow?

Many of the ventures start as a hobby, that is, an activity that you do to earn something extra or that you like to do in the afternoons , and it grows until it becomes a source of income, but how can we structure it and prepare it to grow? ? It is simpler than we think, but it requires work and discipline. Here are some tips and advice that we have applied and observed that they work.

1.Believe it, this is the most important thing, because our actions are oriented towards our beliefs and principles, and if we continue to see it as a " hobby ", we will not take the necessary habits to make it grow.

2. Structure it, this is super important and we hope it will help you save some stumbles, when we start a business informally, we are flexible to certain situations because we want to attract customers and spread the word, but it is important that you have a pre-established structure , that is, creating rules about the products, establishing your price list, organizing orders and orders.

3. Establish schedules at the beginning, we are super excited that we can work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but then you find yourself overloaded and you stop having a business and the business starts having you , so it is important to establish schedules so that you can carry out administrative activities, such as accounting, inventory, etc., and look for ways to create processes.

4. Organize activities by days , for example if you need to supply materials, do this on Mondays, which is the day you have noticed that there are fewer sales, so you are proactive in anticipating work, which allows you to save time and money.

5.Delegate at the beginning it is good that you have all the control, but on certain occasions it is important that your time is dedicated to the activities where you are more agile and another person is in charge of other tasks, which will allow you to make your time more efficient.

6. Set goals , imagine that you take your vehicle and go out to drive, if you do not have a defined destination you could spend hours going around in circles consuming fuel and your time, but if you establish a plan and objectives to meet, you will always be motivated to work.

We hope that these tips will help you start to grow your business and that it is not simply "work, work and more work", as we told you at the beginning, this will not happen automatically or in a single day, it is a plan that we recommend Create a deadline to be able to apply it. And always remember that Rome was not built in a day .
