What’s Your Business Pain Threshold?

February 5, 2013

painIMAGINE THAT YOU HAVE A pain in your stomach. This pain starts as just an annoyance, but day by day it gets worse. “It’s just a stomach ache”, you say, “it will go away”. How long will you wait before you go to a doctor? How much pain will you put up with? Are you going to risk guessing what the problem is? Will you just wait it out?

Whenever I ask this question the usual response I get is that people will seek treatment in 1 to 5 days from the onset of pain. This makes sense, doesn’t it? After all, who wants to live with pain? That would be crazy, wouldn’t it?

However, it has been my observation, that when it comes to their business some retailers have a much higher pain threshold. They will go on living with business pain for months and even years. If we agree that it’s crazy to live with physical pain for more than a few days, why doesn’t it also stand to reason that living with business pain for more than a few days is equally crazy?

Life is  much more enjoyable when you are physically and mentally fit and healthy, right? When you have a healthy business, life becomes even better. Your stress is minimal, your cash flow is good, your charts are all pointing in the right direction, your staff are happy, you sleep well at night and life is terrific.

I don’t know what goes on in people’s heads that keeps them putting up with business pain. Maybe it’s ego, stubbornness or blindness.

I’VE BEEN THERE! Your health suffers, your finances suffer and your loved ones suffer. Life sucks!

No one whose opinion matters will criticize you for trying to make your retail business healthy. Getting help to improve your business isn’t stupid; it’s one of the smartest things you can do. On the other hand, living with pain when it is unnecessary  makes no sense at all.

To your abundant success,
