The first secret that small businesses need to understand is that not everyone is your perfect customer. Small businesses often get excited about their product and service and they think that everybody is the perfect client for them.
This is often not the case. Unless you’re selling ice cream to kids on a hot day, not everyone is going to love your product and service. This is why you have to have unique differentiating factors, and unique selling points that help you to stand out from a crowded marketplace.
As Seth Godin says you need to look for the smallest viable audience to grow your business. You absolutely cannot create a product that is going to suit everybody. There is not enough money in the world that could help you to market to every possible audience and person on the planet.

When you are at home away from work, this is the time when you focus on being with your family.

It takes a long time to build a strong company culture. When we look at companies that we admire the most like Google, Apple, and other reputable businesses we want to have the same culture.
The only way to achieve such a dynamic and vibrant culture is to have a defined set of mission and values.
When you have a defined set of values, that you regularly communicate to your team, this is the only way that you’re going to begin the culture building that’s necessary.
Employees will not do what you are unwilling to do, so you have to set the example and live by your company’s values each and every day. It is completely hypocritical for you to expect your employees to show up early, and then you rolled in at whatever time is convenient for you.
You also have to hire before it’s necessary in order to win in business. Employees will leave you when it’s convenient for them, not when it’s good for your schedule
