There’s probably no one who hasn’t heard the phrase “planting the seed” in some form or another. The phrase, “You’ll reap what you sew” is common too, but how does it apply to business?
Think of it in terms of gardening. You plant a seed, you nurture it, it grows, and you get the rewards of the finished product. In business, hard work is the seed. You put in your dedication, time, and hard work and grow a quality business you can reap the rewards of.
Likewise, a business without the planting and nurturing of seeds can’t grow. Without putting in the hard work necessary to grow your business, you can’t expect to have a reward. Sometimes, even the smallest action can allow you to reap great rewards. Being idle, however, will not yield rewards. In other words, do nothing, get nothing.
You can spend half your life building a business. It may be your most significant asset. Success of this business may result on the economic future of your family. Planning your business and planting the necessary seeds lays the groundwork for the success of your business. Nurture it, and it can grow into the type of business that will yield you great rewards
