In Business; Early Success Drives Future Success
When I studied Business Psychology in school, I learned the concepts of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Piaget’s Theory of Cognitive Development.
Both of these schools of thought about human psychological development discuss the importance of early development. Maslow’s Hierarchy states that there must be strong development of basic needs (food, air, water, and a feeling of safety) before a human can develop a healthy stepping stone to higher level thinking.
Piaget’s Model states that a person’s childhood plays a very important role in the child’s development into a psychologically healthy adult.
I’ve always believed in the importance of early successes in our development as healthy adults. Whether its sports, dating (and other social situations, or business, early successes build momentum. Early successes keep us motivated when the inevitable setbacks occur.
If our early experiences are defeats, our desire to stop attempting our chosen activity might suppress our desire to succeed.
There is another psychological concept of behavior called Learned Helplessness. Paraphrasing from a Wikipedia Article on Learned Helplessness: People who repeatedly fail may conclude they are incapable of improving their performance.
Think about it: if you fail over and over, you will want to give up and stop trying.
This is especially true for new business owners.
One of the reasons we developed the Grave Care Business course was to help people who are just starting (or thinking about starting) their own Grave Care Business. We believe that helping you over the initial hurdles of starting your business will give you a better chance of long term success.
There is a lot to think about when starting your Grave Care Business. Developing the services you offer, building a strong client base, and structuring your pricing (how much money you will charge for your services) are all subjects you must think about as you start your business. If you try to offer services that people are not interested in, they will not hire you. If you build a weak client base, they will not be long-term customers. If you charge too much (or too little) money, your bottom line will suffer.
The Grave Care Business Course tackles these subjects and many more.
Early success is important. If you are thinking about starting your own Grave Care Business, please read through our website to see all that is included in the course.
We love cemeteries and we love helping other people who want to start their own Grave Care Business.
