20 Changes Business Owners Said Helped the Most

I'm a business coach as well as a business owner and am always looking for ways to help both my business and that of my clients.

With this in mind, I asked thousands of business owners, “What changes did you make in your business that helped the most?”

Here are their top responses.

  • Fired some clients
  • Hired a business coach
  • Stopped worrying about what others think and started doing it my way
  • Took sales and service courses
  • Constantly readjusting my strategy based on what is working and what isn't
  • Hired people smarter than me in certain areas
  • Invested in Google ads
  • Started heavily using paid advertising
  • Changed my mindset from earning to giving benefit to others
  • Fired an employee
  • Understanding business is something you make happen, it doesn't just happen.
