Are you an entrepreneur, manager, or CEO? As you’re re-entering business, there are many changes and new trends. While approaching business in ‘the new normal,’ what are you feeling? You might notice a mixture of feelings from anxiety to excitement, from uneasy to exhilarating. LivingBetter50 has 3 tips for women over 50 to have a profitable business, a strong team, and a healthy perspective, all while you reduce stress

Boost Your Business Profits

For instance, let’s say your business is focused on mobile hardware. It’s clear that you want to keep costs down and have the most efficient delivery of mobile hardware to a variety of audiences. The big question is: how can you achieve peak profitability and get the latest technology to the people who need it? The best way is using top industry experts. It’s possible to create a new level of efficiency, across all systems. 

The simple concept is termed: lifecycle management. This is the way to get an overview. You can plan, procure, prepare, deploy, and collect data to achieve maximum efficiency. With one automated solution, you can see all the elements. For example, you’ll spot opportunities for improvement, cost savings, security measures, and deployment refinements — at a glance. While you’re working hard, you don’t have to resort to manual labor. Transform your daily stressors with automation. By automating tedious IT tasks, you can focus on business-critical operations.

Strengthen Your Teamwork

In the new normal, more organizations are moving to hybrid work arrangements, according to experts in Harvard Business Review (HBR). Take a look at your current team and explore options to support independence, equality, and freedom of choice. By fostering free choice, you can inspire your team to greater creativity. Many managers and CEOs find that having an open conversation with their team helps to build engagement. When team members share suggestions about their working arrangements, they tend to be happier and more engaged.

If you notice that there is an imbalance of power between remote workers and onsite employees, explore the options. Open up the conversation and gather suggestions. The best ideas often emerge from the free-flowing dialogue. People may be eager to express ideas, share options, and participate in designing the best working arrangements.

Foster a Healthy Perspective

Running a business can be a lonely job. You’ve got the whole picture, the team goals, and the nitty-gritty details of client interactions. You’re the one who is up at night, sweating over issues of device functionality, security, and costs. You’re the one who is giving up weekends, holidays, or vacations. It doesn’t have to be such a solo or lonely position. Being the CEO or founder of your own company can be a highly rewarding and empowering experience. But, your loved ones and families may not be able to relate to all the things you’re going through.

This is why talking with an expert professional, counselor, or therapist can be so rewarding. Working with a therapist can help you develop a fresh perspective about your job, your life, and your passions.

In working with a therapist, you can gain deeper insights into your emotions, communication patterns, and responses. You may be able to work through new ways to address your concerns and master your worries. 

Therapists are skilled in listening to what is said – and what is not said. With keen observation skills, a professional can ‘play back’ what they are hearing. They may pick up on cues from your tone, expression, body language, and word choice. While they may not be familiar with the ins and outs of your specific profession, they can assist you in achieving your personal goals. 

  • Do you have a sense of purpose in your work?
  • Do you feel happy with your work-life balance?
  • Do you wish you were more emotionally balanced?
  • Do you feel isolated or lonely?
  • Do you have interests other than work?

If certain areas are troubling you, take action. This is what you would do to respond to a customer inquiry or client complaint. You wouldn’t let the problem linger. You’d take immediate action to investigate causes, explore options, and make a plan of action. 

Don’t you deserve the same level of care and consideration?
