Happy Holidays from all of us at NextCrew

This past year has been marvelous and we couldn't have done it without all of you – supporters, clients and potential customers alike. During this holiday season we want to express our gratitude. 

I like to compare the holiday season with the way a child listens to a favorite story. The pleasure is in the familiar way the story begins, the anticipation of familiar turns it takes, the familiar moments of suspense, and the familiar climax and ending. – Fred Rogers

We hope that you and your family have a safe and wonderful holiday season and we look forward to a bright new year in 2014!

Stepping Up To the Challenge: The Tools to Succeed

Do you see it? Opportunities are everywhere. Sometimes we see them, sometimes we ignore them. Like the opportunity to work with a start-up or a new business, or to hire a star employee or to diversify your business, or to use new technology platform to explore additional revenue streams. 

In my experience working with small businesses most of the time I see these opportunities ignored because they requires harder work, more capital, and additional resources. Also, many small companies are concerned about the "what ifs" of the situation. I hear more business owners say, "What if it doesn’t work out," than "What is the worst that can happen?" 

The most successful companies are willing to take on the risks that are inherent with trying something new. If they experience failure, they ask themselves what happened and correct the situation before trying again. 

But they do try again. 

Keep in mind the saying "No guts, no glory." Think about what the "guts" really are.

If you have the right tools - the bones and the guts of your business – along with the right resources to expand your business and to take more risks, would you do it?
What if all it took to give you the confidence to expand your business was a system that could help you function more efficiently and effectively? When the risk is that minimal, it hardly feels like a risk at all.

What would make you feel comfortable enough to step up to the challenge and try something new with your business? Would you consider it if you had the right technology in place? Would you consider it if your staff could concentrate on making money for the business throughout the workday? Would you consider it if you had excellent support from a technology company who could work with you every step of the way?
