Question 9 of 10
What makes a business successful? Its different for every business owner. Lisabellah, Jane, Barry & Anne have their responses let's see what they share.
I am passionate about what I do, it was a hobby I adored. I never imagined I would be fortunate enough to be running a successful business that purely started via word of mouth by people asking where I bought my jewellery. I think my love of what I do contributes to it's success so far
Self belief and motivation
Not following the crowd. Someone once said to me that most creative businesses struggle to make a good income so why copy them.
Having a product that people like enough to buy, a little bit of luck and plenty of graft!
I think it's mostly that we work so hard. Most people building a business work incredibly hard… harder than they've ever worked before. It means that we're able to serve our customers properly which shows that we care. Customers knowing we care means they recommend us and keep coming back to us.
