Dr. Robert Davis, the co-founder of RD Heritage, a partnership of five family offices and their portfolio investments that is headquartered in Las Vegas, shared several powerful and profitable insights on how to build a successful business from the ground up in a new feature article published by Home Business Magazine.
LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / November 18, 2020 / Home Business Magazine offers an extensive and constantly growing library of original content to help entrepreneurs launch, grow, and sustain a home-based business.
In the feature article, Dr. Robert Davis highlighted five essential elements that every entrepreneur - whether they are launching the first business or their 10th - should focus on in order to ensure that their business journey is rewarding instead of regrettable: craft a solid business plan, build the brand, implement effective goal setting, curb expectations, and accept the possibility of failure.
With respect to crafting a solid business plan, Dr. Robert Davis points out that while this is necessary for all entrepreneurs, it is especially vital for those who are seeking to attract and secure investors. While there is no one-size-fits-all template that is suitable for all initiatives and opportunities, a robust business plan typically includes a succinct and compelling executive summary, business overview, operations plan, marketing and sales strategies, extensive market analysis complete with realistic projections, and a specific exit plan.
As for building the brand, Dr. Robert Davis warns entrepreneurs from becoming so involved and enamored with the creative aspect of branding that they fail to maintain cohesive, consistent visuals, and brand messaging across all channels. To avoid this pitfall, entrepreneurs should anchor their brand in their mission and vision and leverage it to establish differentiation in a crowded, competitive marketplace.
When it comes to implementing effective goal setting, Dr. Robert Davis reminds entrepreneurs that every objective must be concrete rather than abstract and assessed against relevant success metrics such as revenue targets, number of customers, investment level, and so on.
In terms of curbing expectations, Dr. Robert Davis urges entrepreneurs to temper their ambition with patience and accept that sometimes the path forward is not linear and easy; on the contrary, it can be circular and challenging. With this in mind, entrepreneurs who are prepared and have done their homework are much better equipped to stay the course and achieve success.
And finally, Dr. Robert Davis wants entrepreneurs to know that the only way to neutralize the fear of failure is to accept that setbacks can and will happen. What ultimately determines if an entrepreneur thrives or struggles is how to intelligently, they respond to failure when - not if - it occurs in one form or another.
