Welcome to the INNsider Tips.
Today, I’m going to be talking about the different types of business owners. See if you can perceive yourself in any of these.
Are you a business opportunist?
- Someone who has created and owned their businesses in the past and is always looking for a new experience.
- Someone who sees an opportunity in many things and knows they can turn it into an exceptional business.
- Someone who loves using their imagination, always looking forward, never living in the past
- Someone who loves to dream and create.
Are you a supervisor?
- Someone who thrives on order
- Someone whose mantra is “If it’s not broke don’t fix it”
- Someone who can foresee problems
- Does not like change
Or are you a skilled worker?
- This skilled worker is the doer; do it yourself if you want it done right.
- The skilled worker who is in today.
- Multitasking is not in a skilled workers vocabulary, you do one thing at a time and do it right
- You feel if you don’t do it, it doesn’t get done or it doesn’t get done right.
Can you see yourself in any of these categories?
Which of these categories is more valuable when operating an independent hotel, resort, inn or bed & breakfast?
Can you see any problems trying to be all three?
The business opportunist is always looking at new great ideas, dreaming of how things can be.
The supervisor wants everything done in an orderly fashion, to stay within the system and in the budget.
The skilled worker knows what has to be done, and does not like the idea of their routine being disturbed.
Today’s typical small business owner is only I0 per cent business opportunist, 20 per cent supervisor, and 70 per cent skilled worker; and in most cases, this is out of necessity.
Do you think a better balance would be more advantageous for your business?
If you don’t have balance, there are going to be parts of your business that are lacking.
Think about what steps you need to take to become a more balanced operator.
