Prevent Pitfall of Trying to Please Everyone @masterbizcoach Melissa Evans -VP of Motivating The Masses-

PowerPoint Presentation:

@masterbizcoach It is a mistake that we face in regular life. It is also a problem that can affect businesses of any type, especially the small business. When you try to please everyone, you will find that it is impossible, and you will fail. Along the way, you could very likely cause your business to fail.

PowerPoint Presentation:

@masterbizcoach When you own and run a small business, then you most likely feel like you need to make everyone happy, from your customers to other businesses to employees to vendors. Unfortunately, you cannot make everyone happy. There will be people who are dissatisfied. You are bound to have a customer or two who thinks you charge too much or who feels that they were not treated with enough respect.

PowerPoint Presentation:

@masterbizcoach You are bound to have employees who, at times, become frustrated with you or their coworkers. In addition, you are bound to make vendors and suppliers unhappy as well. Owning a small business means that you have to find a balance in all things. You must balance sales and operations, profit and feasibility, and happiness and professionalism. You probably think that, if everyone is not happy, then how can you run a successful business? While you do want people to be pleased with your business, you must also recognize that trying to please everyone all the time is a definite pitfall.

PowerPoint Presentation:

@masterbizcoach When you try to please everyone, you may be tempted to use money as a heal-all. You may be tempted to provide every unhappy customer with free sales or deep discounts, and every unhappy employee with big bonuses. You will quickly find that doing this all of the time can be detrimental to your business' finances.

PowerPoint Presentation:

@masterbizcoach How can you avoid this problem? First, you will have to accept that someone will be unhappy. You are sure to displease a customer, an employee, or even another business owner from time to time. This does not mean that you are not running your business well. It may not even be something that you did. You will have to be accepting of the fact that this will happen.

@masterbizcoach Next, you will have to know how to handle displeasure. Understanding that people will not always be happy with you means that you will be able to face the problems. When it comes to customers, you will want to try to make them happy by working to reconcile the problem.

@masterbizcoach However, you cannot spend so much time trying to make everyone happy that you damage your relationship with others. Often, spending all of your time trying to make everyone happy will eventually make someone very unhappy because they will be neglected.

PowerPoint Presentation:

@masterbizcoach When you own and run a small business, you will have to watch out for falling into the trap of trying to please everyone all of the time. It is impossible and you will only cause your company more problems.
