Brian Young, CEO of Home Painters Toronto, had a small business on the brink of collapse. What he discovered, though, was that sometimes success can be achieved just by staying afloat long enough for the big win to finally come along. With a long-declining business, Brian grew the company 350% in under three years. How did he do it?
First, Brian had strong role models and mentors. Even if you don’t know anyone who can fill that role for you, you can always reach out to people via social media. Find an influencer who you admire and get to know them on Twitter. Start a blog and conduct expert interviews. Getting to know these people means that they can wield their influence on your behalf. If you need more direction, there are a ton of podcasts and courses you can take that will pump you up, inspire you, and make you a better leader. Brian credits programs like Tony Robbins’ Business Mastery I with helping him pull Home Painters Toronto out of trouble. Finally, it’s good to know that you don’t have to go through this ordeal alone. A business coach can help and support you as you do the difficult work of saving a failing business. Hope is never lost until you give up!
