Building Resiliency with Yabbit

“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchhill 

For some, their business is a lifelong dream that has finally come to fruition. Having your own business can mean building everything from the ground up, and when you have worked that hard for something, the business ends up being so much more than just an income source.  

As you build your team, no matter how small it is, you are bringing talented people together; people who have their own lives and their own families, and whose lives are now intertwined with your business. Success is now not only an individual dream, but a necessity to give yourself and your team the salaries and benefits that any talented worker deserves. But like any path to success, you are often met with a few hurdles that make everything harder. 

That’s where resiliency comes in. Ups and downs will be part of any path you pursue. The key in resiliency is not to avoid bad moments, and to not always expect success, but to know that bad moments are not final. There will always be ways to overcome them. 

Control your own destiny 

There’s something to be said about learning the hard way. Take it from us, we’ve been there. Yabbit was born out of the desire to give services to small businesses, so we can make sure that someone is looking out for the little guy. 

It’s a long story, but at one point in time we had no idea how to keep going, and when everything feels like it’s crumbling down around you, keeping business just business is impossible. The situation starts to affect your health, your personal life, etc. That is just not fair. What we learned back then is, there will always be a light at the end of the tunnel. 

We also learned that large corporations unfortunately, don’t have your best interest in mind. They do not see your business the way you do. What might mean everything to you is often just another number for them. That’s why resiliency must be at the forefront of your day-to-day business operations. We know what being a small business entails, our mission is to be the one company that you can trust. 

Even though we went through fire, it taught us to take control of our own destiny and not leave it in the hands of others. 

As a business owner, you have an obligation to your employees, customers, and your legacy to control your own destiny. So how do you do that? 

For starters, don’t put all your eggs in one basket. There’s a reason financial experts recommend a diversified portfolio, because nothing is guaranteed. Having alternative or complimentary services or products that can row when one oar is down is crucial to your long-term success. 

Let’s hop into an example. Hop, hop! 

We’ve got Melanie providing personal tax services. However, the need for those services seems to slow down in the early months of the year. She knows that her firm will be very busy in August, September, and October. But what can she do to provide a steady income for the entirety of the year? 

Because Melanie and her team are great with numbers, she decides to add finance and budgeting services to help individuals all year long. This service is right in their wheelhouse and provides a fallback if tax season is slower than usual. 

Now Melanie’s firm has a steady stream of revenue and a high-margin cyclical service too! 

Resiliency doesn’t just mean you get up when you get knocked down; resiliency also means that you’re prepared for when something out of your control tries to knock you down. 

What to do when you don’t know what to do? 

Just keep swimming. Keep going. Mistakes and difficult moments are part of all business journeys; and what’s the good thing about difficult moments? You can learn from them.  We know that when things start going south it’s easy to think that maybe you are heading in the wrong direction, that having a business isn’t for you, or even that it is because of you that things are going wrong.  

So, let us get you out of your head for a second to tell you that absolutely everyone that decides to have a business fails at one point or another. The difference between those who see their business to eventual success and those who don’t lies in whether they kept going forward or gave up. 

Yabbit’s advice? Never give up, keep going. Like Winston Churchill said failure is not fatal. There will always be ways to fix mistakes or to get out of whatever hole you feel you’ve fallen into. Remember that success is a personal journey, it doesn’t matter what others think, it matters what you believe will lead you to success. If that means ending something and starting again from scratch or finding solutions to keep going forward, that is only up to you to decide.
