Yes, Success Can Make You Fail

Remember the TV commercial that showed the dot-com geeks publishing their website and within minutes the web counter went ballistic? All of a sudden they had a ton of business they couldn’t handle.

Having too much business can be as detrimental to your business success as not having enough. Missed deadlines and unfulfilled orders can cause you to fail quickly. Your prospects want your product or service and they want it now. If you can’t accommodate them, they’ll go somewhere else — fast.

If you’ve done your homework on what your prospects want, this could happen to you and you have to be ready. Make sure you have contingencies in place such as a method for outsourcing work to a competent subcontractor or agreements for assistance from a friendly competitor to get you through these great — but trying — times.

What suggestions do you have? Leave me a note below.
