What is your definition of success

Defining business success is a complex task. While profit may seem like the obvious answer, it’s not the whole story. For some, success is about making a tangible difference in the lives of others. This is evident in the work of many non-profits, but it’s a rare trait in the business world.

Remember, making a difference is not limited to non-profits. No matter your business, you have the potential to create a positive impact, which can be a source of personal growth and fulfillment.

It is as simple as Championing Others. Make a social media post about a company you work with that does a wonderful job. Spread the word and be a champion for them. You will be surprised how this will work.

But Wait

But there is a word of caution: always be positive. Resist the temptation to talk about something negative. This is not the forum to discuss a company you have had a problem with.

On that note, here is the first of our business spotlights.

One of my favorite Art Galleries is the Artists Co-op of Reno. It is a non-profit, member-run gallery that has been continually successful. 

If you are looking for art to decorate your house, business, or gift, the Artists Co-op of Reno has what you are looking for. 

Now, this sounds like an advertisement, and it is, but there is more to it. If you are looking for a business that shows an example of what can happen when the people running that business have buy-in, then look to the Artists Co-op of Reno. Each member takes a turn running the retail each month and acknowledges the responsibility of being a thriving art gallery.

What is the takeaway for you?

Now, you know of a place to see and purchase art, but more than that, here is an example of what can be done if you have dedicated people with a common goal. Truthfully, this simple element in business can be easily lost in the minutia of the day-to-day drudgery.

And now for a question

Do YOU have buy-in when running your business?

On a side note, the image was generated by Adobe Firefly AI. I am not a fan of AI, but we must face the fact that AI is here to stay. AI has given us an evolutionary ethical dilemma that will spark conversation for years to come.
