Hustle it up: Getting Motivated as a Business Owner Part 2

These are the days that test our patience. These are the days that push us to our limits. As business owners, it is an even crazier world, challenging us at every turn. So when the going gets tough, how do you pump yourself up? How do you motivate yourself to push through and achieve your goals? As a continuation of the blog we began earlier this month, we are helping to guide you along the path of more great ways to make sure you are moving forward, step by step. All you need is a little motivation. 

6. Set rewards.

We are naturally wired to react to incentives, so be prepared to reward yourself for accomplishing a goal or maintaining a habit. Just like in business, you should recognize and reward small victories along the way to long-term, broader goals. 

7. Engage friends.

Sometimes the best motivation comes from peer pressure. Engage your friends and colleagues to help motivate you both toward individual and shared goals. Consider mobile apps that make the engagement fun, such as Make Me, ChallengedApp, KlashApp or simply text your challenge to your partner.

8. Indulge in inspirational activities.

Sometimes, you just need to look outside your circle for motivation. When this happens, re-match a movie that you found inspiring. During your lunch break, watch a TED talk. Or listen to an inspirational podcast during your commute, on your daily walk or while you are enjoying your personal time alone.

9. Stay positive.

There is no one-size-fits all answer to what makes people happy, with definitions, theories and opinions abound. For me, I have a simple mantra that I turn to when I need a boost. It is simply, “Choose happy.” By saying that phrase and mustering up an authentic smile, I find my mood and motivation is elevated exponentially.

10. Sleep.

Finally, never underestimate the value of a good night sleep for personal motivation. After years of experience and self experimenting, I have found that, with few exceptions, no unfinished task or missed goal is worth the misery that comes with losing sleep over it. More important, with a fresh night of rest, these tasks and goals become infinitely easier to finish the following day.

What other ways do you stay motivated as an entrepreneur? Each person is unique, so we want to hear what works best for you.

Business Leadership in COVID

Companies are in different phases of dealing with the outbreak, and therefore the impacts vary by geography and sector. But regardless of the extent of the virus’s impact on an organization, we believe there are five fundamental qualities of resilient leadership that distinguish successful CEOs as they guide their enterprises through the Covid-19 crisis:

Design from the heart and the mind. Resilient leaders are genuinely, sincerely empathetic, walking compassionately in the shoes of employees, customers, and their broader ecosystems. Yet resilient leaders must simultaneously take a hard, rational line to protect financial performance from the invariable softness that accompanies such disruptions.

Put the mission first. Resilient leaders are skilled at triage, able to stabilize their organizations to meet the crisis at hand while finding opportunities amid difficult constraints.

Aim for speed over elegance. Resilient leaders take decisive action—with courage— based on imperfect information, knowing that expediency is essential.

Own the narrative. Resilient leaders seize the narrative at the outset, being transparent about current realities—including what they don’t know—while also painting a compelling picture of the future that inspires others to persevere.

Embrace the long view. Resilient leaders stay focused on the horizon, anticipating the new business models that are likely to emerge and sparking the innovations that will define tomorrow.

A typical crisis plays out over three time frames: respond, in which a company deals with the present situation and manages continuity; recover, during which a company learns and emerges stronger; and thrive, where the company prepares for and shapes the “next normal.” CEOs have the substantial and added responsibility to nimbly consider all three time frames concurrently and allocate resources accordingly.

Within the framework of these broad imperatives, resilient leaders can take specific tactical steps to elevate these qualities during the current crisis, blunting its impact and helping their organizations emerge stronger. With the right approach, this crisis can become an opportunity to move forward and create even more value and positive societal impact, rather than just bounce back to the status quo.

Essential Purchases for Business Owners: Security Systems


The right business security system has the power to catch criminals, suppress fires, and provide superior access control to the leaders of the company, but small business owners may believe that their organizations are manageable enough that they don’t need fancy gadgetry to keep track of what’s happening around the office. See why this is a myth, and how commercial security services work to keep you protected from the many variable factors of the universe.

1. Makes Your Business More Efficient With Video Surveillance

Being able to monitor the activity within an office isn’t always as easy as it seems. Even if you have only a few employees, there are patterns and habits that likely won’t emerge until you can take a step back and look at the big picture. If you have a variety of people coming in and out of your office on any given day, business security camera systems can make it easier to identify authorized individuals and watch their movements. Access control systems give you a way to see the activity that’s happening, so you can tighten up your processes wherever possible.

2. Helps Prevent Employee Theft and External Crime

There are a variety of ways for criminals to try to get around security systems for businesses, but why would they want to put in all the extra effort? From cameras to silent alarms, the last thing a criminal wants to do is risk being caught halfway through the act. The more complex your security systems are, the more likely it is that a criminal will move onto their next target. As for employees, they may also be less inclined to ‘game’ the system for their own benefit.

3. Minimizes Fire Damage with Fire Alarm Systems

Fires can stem from practically anywhere in the building. From faulty wiring to human error, even small flames can cause big problems. Smoke damage is notoriously difficult to remove, meaning small business owners would likely need to fully replace anything that was touched by it. The expense can be enough to shut down a small business — even with commercial business insurance. Fire protection systems for business can keep fire damage to the bare minimum so that you’re not burdened with the expense.

4. Keeps You in the Loop with Remote Monitoring

The last thing you want is to come to your office to discover that it has been violated or damaged somehow. Security systems prepare you for whatever may happen to your space, whether it’s 4 a.m. or 4 p.m. When you get the notifications you need, you have the chance to act before anything else can happen. You can manipulate intrusion alarm systems for windows, loading doors, and emergency exits, so you know you’re protected from every angle.

5. Gives You Complete Peace of Mind

In the end, there is no way to prevent every possible disaster that can happen on your property. However, the right access control systems can give you a lot more confidence in the safety of your livelihood. Plus, security systems are meant to save business owners a lot more than they cost. They give you full control over access to your business, and an effective course of action in case something does happen.

Having the right security system is worth far more than the cost of installation upkeep. If you’ve been neglecting your security, it’s time to start thinking long-term.

Staying Updated on Florida’s Economy & Unemployment


Maybe it’s the sun, the sand, the trees or just the overall dedication to finding ways to remotely run businesses and restructure the businesses that actually need a physical location open, but Floridian’s are determined to help their economy thrive in the safest and most innovative ways possible. As we are continuing to track everything going on around us, one of our favorite bits of information comes from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and the latest reporting statistics for unemployment and re-employment in their September Press Release (Excerpt seen below):

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, the Department of Economic Opportunity announced Florida’s unemployment rate for August 2020 dropped to 7.4 percent, down 4 percentage points over the month. Additionally, Florida’s labor force increased 1.4 percent over the month, an increase of 143,000 Floridians entering the workforce. Florida businesses gained 46,000 private sector jobs over the month. 

The August 2020 report showed encouraging indicators:

  • Florida lost 1,178,100 jobs from February to April 2020 and has since gained back over half of the jobs lost (+631,600 jobs).
  • The three industries losing the most jobs from February to April 2020, gained back 448,300 jobs from April to August 2020: leisure and hospitality (+278,500 jobs, 50.6 percent); professional and business services (+73,200 jobs, 48.5 percent); and education and health services (+96,600 jobs, 72.9 percent). 

“Florida’s job creators have faced significant challenges this year, forcing many of them to make difficult strategic decisions; however, today’s employment data reflects their commitment to Florida families,” said Dane Eagle, Executive Director of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. “Under Governor DeSantis’ leadership, I look forward to protecting Florida’s business friendly environment and working with our partners throughout the state to help improve the lives of Floridians, strategically invest in our communities, and transform Florida’s economy for the future.”

Florida Economic Indicators for August 2020 include:

  • Unemployment rate was 7.4 percent.
  • Labor force was up 143,000, or 1.4 percent, over the month.
  • Florida businesses gained 46,000 private-sector jobs over the month.
  • Florida’s private-sector job creation over-the-year rate of decline of 5.8 percent was less than the national over-the-year decline of 7.4 percent.
  • Florida private-sector jobs were down 458,000 over the year.
  • Private-sector industries gaining the most jobs over-the-month were:
  • Education and health services with 21,400 new jobs;
  • Professional and business services with 9,600 new jobs;
  • Trade, transportation and utilities with 6,600 new jobs;

As we still have so much work to do to bring our economy back to a fully functioning status, indicators like these can give businesses immense hope for rebuilding. As is understandable with the evolution of the business landscape after a traumatic hit that we have experienced in 2020, some industries are getting back on their feet a little quicker. For those who are looking to start their first business or just looking to pivot their strategy, pay attention to information and releases such as these to determine what industry will be the best opportunity to get back on your feet.
