Okay, I’m not much of a gardener but I know a few things. I’ve learned that owning and operating a business is very much like gardening. Why? Because there are moments I put in a lot of work only to have to step back and allow it to grow. Other times I have to be more hands-on, give my garden a few sprinkles of water and be more attentive to its needs.
In order to grow a business that thrives I like to think of nourishing a business the way I might a garden.
And that’s what this podcast episode is all about. I’m sharing some ways we can do just that! Here is the basic outline of what I discussed. It’s better if you listen in at the play button above, so I won’t get into much detail here:
- Start with a seed.
- Plant the seed in good soil.
- Water it.
- Give it sunshine
- Watch it grow!
Very basic, right? I do think that when we follow the pattern that nature shows us how to do, the simple act of taking care of a garden, we can have even a much better and more holistic business. Because then it’s not about pushing for quick, overnight growth (though that can happen too and it’s always great when it does!) but putting in the time to cultivate it and watching it naturally produce for you, for years to come.
