Experienced business owners, know that change must happen at key stages of the evolution of a business, if the business itself is to ultimately become successful.


The key to successfully implementing business improvement strategies, involves the business owner avoiding becoming overwhelmed with the effort required to get all staff on board, and being up to the task of leading the change process Through to completion.


This excellent article, makes it clear that the affected employees must be central to the change process, and it outlines three things that business owners should do to ensure that their employees come on board with any business improvement plans.

Content Marketing For Startups
Content marketing authority is something everyone wants yet few realize the fastest way to achieve what they want is to share, share, share. The 4 Sharing Tips:

* Give Expertise Away, but not 100% (find a way to create ROI too).

* Following Is Currency, So SPEND IT.
* Presence Makes you REAL.
* Trust in KARMA of the SHARE.

Post is trending on Curatti after going live on Tuesday. This "bean stalk" is an important content marketing one for startups to climb. Being a startup is solipsistic and self referential when it needs to be open kimono authentic and all about sharing. Share EVERYTHING.

Blake Hawley's curator insight, February 5, 2014 10:20 AM

Far too often veterinarians fail to delegate to their vet nurses and techs, sometimes due to guilt, other times to trust.  The tragedy is that their team actually WANT more responsibility and everyone one vet, team, clients, pets would all benefit.

Tooliers's curator insight, February 6, 2014 10:40 AM

Delegating - friend or foe?  It's ok for any manager to delegate, but sometimes distributing tasks becomes a difficult task itself.

Creativity More Valuable Than Passion: An Entrepreneur's Rules of Creativity

Creativity More Valuable Than Passion: An Entrepreneur's Rules of Creativity | Online Accounts | Scoop.it

After @Hannah Kramershared a great post about Creativity being more important for startup entrepreneurs than passion I wanted to weigh in and share related experience growing up with the right side of the brain being my dominant hemisphere (lol).

I share 5 ideas from the daughter of Gatorade's inventor:

* Creativity Bigger Predictor Than Intelligence.
* Creativity Can Be A Hard Row To Hoe.
* Creativity & Structure.
* Creativity can be learned and taught.
* Creativity happens at intersection of disciplines.

Great post hope my hard won experience contributes something helpful.
