Are you a trailblazer?It's a good question for business owners.
I once read a story about how a young cow started a trail. It wasn't straight but instead ambled in a kind of zig zag around trees and such. People came to use the trail and eventually a paved road was built to allow even more access. Remember it still wasn't straight or even the best way but instead it was a way people had grown to know and use.
The moral to this story is that following may not always be the best way for you as a business owner. Better ways and the opportunity for greater success may require you to blaze out a different trail to get what you want.
Why not be the one to create a new way of doing things, a new trend or a fresh approach. The opportunity for rewards improve because you will be the first in line to reap the benefits. Makes sense right?
I am a CPA in San Antonio and serve individuals and small businesses in San Antonio and surrounding areas.
