Showing up

It may seem simple, but in business, simply showing up ready to work and prepared is often more than half the battle. I continue to be amazed by entrepreneurs who think that once they have "put in their time" that the business should run itself. This is simply not the case. You may not be in the office/workspace for the hours, but you are constantly working on or with your business. For employees of those businesses, if you don't show up, the customers don't receive the goods or service and as a result, not only is revenue lost, but the customer downgrades the business because you are simply not available. Make a commitment to showing up regularly and being a demonstrative leader for the rest of the team!
