What Sets You Apart?
It's no secret that our economy is in tough shape. And with so many jobs being lost you need to do something that sets you apart. You absolutely need to be indispensible and have a high level of emotional intelligence. Meaning, you need to "click" with your customers and really be in tune with their needs. It's not possible to read their minds, but you need to try.
Think about what makes you unique. What do you bring to your customers that no one else can. Every day you should be asking yourself and thinking about why you should be the "go to" person and go above and beyond everyday.
If you want your business to grow you need to be producing at a level that is above and beyond all the time.
Take advantage of different ways to improve your skill set. Get involved in different projects, take some classes, get yourself noticed.
In todays economy doing a good job is not good enough, you've got to be great.
