In our efforts to present cutting-edge business tips and tricks, a CHYE staff member, recently attended the JWE conference, held May 4th in Parsippany, New Jersey (We travel the distance for our members!) The conference proved a day filled with expert guidance, inspirational speakers, and offered a variety of multiple breakout sessions.

Top 10 Tips for Building a Successful Business: 

  1. PASSION: Love What You Do And You Will Persevere.

  2. TEAM: Build Yourself A Great Team- Different Strengths Mean Different Ideas And Better Business!

  3. PERSEVERANCE: Posses The Grit To Power On For There Will Always Be Setbacks. The Key Is To Never Allow Those Obstacles To Break You.

  4. INTEGRITY: Your Words Should Be Your Contract; Honesty Is Everything In Building Successful Business. Give Your Clients Reason To Trust Your Word.

  5. FINANCIAL KNOWLEDGE: Any Entrepreneur Should Know Their Bookkeeping As Well As Their Book-Keepers. Create A Financial Forecast And Be Aware Of Your Accounts.

  6. SALES: You Are Your Best Asset! Don’t Sell Yourself Short; Work On Your Sales Skill Set. Get People Interested. It’s All About The Conversation, Association, And Vocation!

  7. BE DIFFERENT: Focus On How To Do It Better And Why Your Company Trumps The Others Out There That Are Like Yours. What Is Your Niche?

  8. BECOME AN EXPERT IN YOUR FIELD: Know How To Save; Bring In New Ideas; And Express Your Worth Indirectly When Speaking To Investors. Understand The Market.

  9. LEARN YOUR TARGET MARKET: Allow Your Other Ideas To Rest On The Backburner; One Task At A Time, One Business At A Time. Who Are You Selling To? Who Are Your Customers And Why?

  10. GRATITUDE: Thank Your Team; Those That Have Been Beside You, Encouraged You, And Simply Thank Them Because They Were There. Furthermore, Thank G-D For Allowing Your Business To Thrive. We Are Never In Control Or On Top Without LOTS Of Help From Above.
