One thing I've really come to realise in 2020 so far - that small business life is most definitely not a solo sport.
I've been so fortunate to find a handful of small business communities that have been invaluable in keeping afloat in this crazy ride that is small business ownership. @mums.and.co is one of these communities.
I was rather chuffed when they asked me to be a part of a members feature which you can check out via the link in my bio.
If you're looking for a community of Mums who are in business, and with membership perks like coaching and development opportunities then hop over and check out Mums&Co.
Policies and Procedures form the bases of effective operations of a construction business operations .
Policies are about the rules under which we conduct business.
Procedures are the guidelines to execute the work process. •
The difficult task of managing the day to day operations of a construction business can be simplify by the implementation of procedures to guide the execution of the tasks that form part of the core business.
For a construction business, procedures create the opportunity to include the necessary steps to add that extra mile to the services we provide, instructing others with detail information on how to perform those services to match the workmanship, quality and the value we intent to offer.
Each one of the business services should be describe in a document outlining the correct steps to complete the tasks included in the process of performing that service with detailed information about tools, materials, timing, recommendations and more.
Procedures are an essential part of the training we should provide to everyone carrying the responsibility to delivery the business services to our clients.
It’s a lot easier to ask for specific results when we previously provided a route map on how to achieve those results.
Successful businesses operate by the procedures established to make and keep them prosperous.
In construction a great procedure written by a trade business owner to instruct his employees in how to execute a particular construction task could become the textbook for passing down the experience accumulated for the owner while training others in delivering those business services with the attention to detail and workmanship only the owner could.
Procedures are the part of the business operations that guide the proper execution of trade services and guaranty the quality we promised.
For a business owner / manager establishing procedures is crucial for delegating important tasks and still expect for the a proper completion.
Procedures implementation in one of the many services we offer our clients when stream-lining their business operations.

📊 Data does NOT lie! 📈
As a business owner, being able to make informed decisions is critical.
When your choices affect your employees, customers, and bottom-line, it might feel even more daunting to make quick and hasty decisions.
Being an Enterprise Engineer for 15+ years supprting business leaders with data helped me to understand this in a unique way.
The most exciting projects that I worked on mines data and presenting it in an informative and useful way.
An example of such projects are:
✔Building a Business Intelligence report for the Bank of America real estate department.
✔ Designing and engineering an interactive financial projection report from scratch for the CFO of a large E-commerce company.
🏁 My goal is to bring this expertise and experience to black-owned businesses to support owners with data, innovation and more.
Even with this background over the years, it does not always translate into my own life and business so I know it is not easy.
When I feel overwhelmed, after prayer and supplication, I tell myself…. Get to the data.

There is no such thing as a commodity. All goods and services are differentiable.
Who said that commodities can’t be branded?? Yes even these boring goods can have a voice.. * Consumers are becoming more curious about the sources of the products they buy.
* And because price is the only differentiator factor, lowering the prices on the long term may cause bankruptcy.
* If bananas can be branded, many other commodities can.
Do you believe that any good should be differentiated?

You will never fail unless you allow yourself to!
I don't actually believe in failure at all. When you look at everything that happens as a learning experience then it is impossible to fail.
When you miss the mark on those targets - why were they not met? What can make you change to make sure you don't miss it again? How did it make you feel to not hit them? How do you want to feel?
Write it out! List the reasons you think you failed and how you aim to avoid it next time. That way it will always be there to look back on.
Believing your “small business” has limitless potential is the first step to growth. The second is positioning your company for success using “big business” techniques that are accessible. Create structure to manage the use of resources including money and time. Use tools like budgets, and point of sales software to properly track inventory, and sales. Analyze sales reports for trends and leverage your findings.

*puts Insurance Broker hat on*
It made me a lil nervy to say the least 😕
I wondered whether biz owners had checked to see if their insurance covered their new activities 🤷🏼♀️
Whenever your biz is undergoing change chatting with your insurance provider or broker is an absolute must‼️
No matter how big or how small you see the change to be, always check for peace of mind 🙌🏽
The consequences of not reviewing your insurance as your biz evolves could be disastrous 💥🤯
Have you introduced any changes to your biz recently?

"Doing what you like is freedom, liking what you do is happiness." I heard this quote the other day and realized that there is a reason for the path that I am on. My goal was never to make X amount of money. My goal was happiness and to do what I loved every day of my life.
Why should I ever settle for less? ❤

Let's get connected and drop me a message with your requirements and any questions you might have.
Hiii ☺️👋🏽 and happy Monday! For those that have been following for a while, allow me to reintroduce myself. And for those who are new, allow me to introduce myself...
I’m Casey, typical Virgo ♍️, lover of almond long macs ☕️ and aspiring green thumb 🌿. I’m a huge advocate for self-love and mental wellbeing ✨, I have a weakness for @kuld_creamery🍦(if you know, you know! If you don’t, you need to know!), and I’m completely obsessed with my American Staffy, Cleo 🐶💗
I have a Diploma in Financial Services - Insurance Broking, which allows me to help biz owners protect their hard work when sh*t hits the fan! I’m a helper at heart, so being able to provide businesses with peace of mind is especially rewarding 🙌🏽
I’m passionate about supporting local businesses and find it so inspiring to see them flourish🌻 I also love connecting with like-minded women, so please make sure to introduce yourself - I never shy away from a chat 🙃
I think it’s fair to say that a lot of us struggle to ask for it when we need it, am I right? 💁🏼♀️ I can think of numerous times where I haven’t asked for help and then turned what started off as little problem, turned into a complete catastrophe 💥🙃
Which is why when I decided to begin the extremely daunting task of ‘nailing the gram’ 🤯 I knew that I needed to get it right from the get go! I couldn’t afford to waste time trying to figure out the do’s and don’ts, all of the features, analytics and don’t even get me started on the algorithm 🤦🏼♀️
So, it was an absolute no brainer to enlist the help of @eloisesmith_ ; the creator of ‘Nailing the Gram’ (quite literally 😉)... and boy am I glad that I did! Without Elo’s help I’d be miles behind and probably having a major meltdown as we speak 🤯 To top it all off, she’s an absolute ray of sunshine to have around ☀️, incredibly supportive 💞 and she inspires me all the damn time 🤩
Fun fact; Eloise and I actually met in 2016 on a photo shoot for a local activewear brand 📸 (This is also where I met @makeupbymelanie_ ☺️👋🏽) We we’re both living very different lives back then (that’s another post), but through the gram we’ve kept in touch and then here we are almost 4 years later! How cool is that?! 💖
We all need a helping hand sometimes, so it’s important to build yourself a network of supportive, inspiring and all round good eggs! 💛 Tag someone who has helped you or some of the important people within your support network ✨
