Gloria’s Cottage Craft Trading is owned by Gloria A Freestone, She began Cottage Craft some 14 years ago. She studied Herbalism for 5 years and was last year awarded a South African Bush Doctors Certificate allowing her to make up her herbal products.

She has decided to widen her scope of trading, outside of just her own manufactured Herbal remedies, to earn extra retirement revenue, unfortunately the RA’s did not perform as planned.

In any event she also makes Home Crafts and is an avid Hobbyist. Her latest Hobby is painting river stones into delightful Ladybugs, Owls and Mushrooms.

She was recently asked to make a “Fairy House” from a Stump which turned out excellently as she has a lot of artistic talent.

I have been helping start-ups for years so decided I would start simply with my wife’s business and go step by step to get this into the Public Domain.

This is being started with no capital but using the skills we have both developed over the years including my getting a Wordpres training from Shawn Fouche and an Advanced Digital Marketing Diploma from Shaw Academy. The diploma is NVQ4 rated and accepted in the Eu as a Degree course.

So whilst I normally work with struggling, already existing businesses medium to large,  I can apply a certain amount of time to pro-bono work with good start-up ideas. So send me a mail with your idea and if this sounds worthwhile – to me. I am the sole judge as I am giving a certain number of hours, Pro-Bono. As a Senior IDC Expert, it is expected of me , in any event.. So lets talk. I do warn you though – Not everyone will be chosen.

So let me start telling You about IDC. But before we do I must tell you that I am not employed by IDC neither do I profess to be a complete GURU at their needs and do the very best for my Clients. In the past 5 years, I have raised over R800 million for SME’s.

IDC Overview

It is no use looking for funding at IDC  unless a couple of hard coded rules are followed and these are:

Minimum requirements

  1. Security; the form and nature of which will relate to your specific circumstances;
  2. Compliance with international environmental standards;
  3. Shareholders/owners are expected to make some financial contribution:- The contribution of historically disadvantaged people under special circumstances may be lowered, in which case the corporation will be prepared to extend finance in excess of the owner’s contribution.
  4. The project/business must exhibit economic merit in terms of profitability and sustainability;
  5. We do not refinance fixed assets, since our aim is to expand the industrial base; and
  6. We also focus on broad-based and expansionary black economic empowerment and black industrialists.

8 signs of an Imploding Business.

8 signs of an Imploding Business.

Welcome to our 8 signs of an Imploding Business pagehttps://www.mjfgroup.biz/8 signs of an Imploding Business.

 

 

 

Check out these 8 signs of an Imploding Business..

If you’re still uncertain that Your business is in serious trouble, then pay attention to the following 8 signs of an Imploding Business.

1. Low sales.

The first, and most obvious of the 8 signs of an Imploding Business is low sales. This could either be lower than expected projections or a decrease in sales than the previous quarter. Your business can’t succeed without a steady income to pay all of your expenses.

When you notice that there’s a sudden decrease in sales, you need to diagnose the problem. Begin by surveying your employees and customers, conducting a competitive analysis and examining the outside environment, like societal changes or natural disasters. 

This should give you a better understanding of why there’s a decline in sales and if there will be a turnaround. If it doesn’t seem likely the industry or your business can turn things around, then it’s rather clear that your business is in trouble.

2. You can’t remember the last time you spoke to a client.

The second of the 8 signs of an Imploding Business is that Customer service reps aren’t the only ones talking to your customers. Even as a founder and CEO, it’s your responsibility to talk to your potential or existing customers to understand their needs and how to improve your business. It’s a trick that everyone from Sam Walton to Slack’s Stewart Butterfield have relied on.

It’s another troubling sign for your business if you can’t remember the last time that you spoke to a customer. Either you’re not actively engaging them or they just don’t have an interest in your products or services anymore.

3. No one is talking about your business.

The third of the 8 signs of an Imploding Business almost goes hand-in-hand with the previous point. Something is wrong if no one is mentioning you on social media, leaving reviews or getting in touch with customer service reps. It’s either because you’re not interacting with your audience or they simply don’t care about your business.

Make an effort to reach out to your customers by asking them to leave reviews and boosting your engagement on social media. If there’s still silence, then that might not be enough to save your business. I personally blog about whatever it is that is trending, a lot, to attract people to my company. It helps!

4. You regularly question your motives.

The 4th of the 8 signs of an Imploding Businessis that we all have moments where we ask questions like “Why am I doing this?” or blurting out statements like “I can’t take this anymore.” That’s normal during the entrepreneurial journey. However, if that mentality is becoming more and more frequent than it’s time to move on from your business.

 

5. There’s nothing unique about your business.

The 5th sign of the of the 8 signs of an Imploding Business is that your business needs to stand-out from your competitors. Take a moment and jot down all of the characteristics of your business, products and services, then compare it with the others within your industry. If you’re different from your top competitors, then you have a competitive edge you can use to your advantage.

If not, you can be certain that your business won’t stand the test of time. Either find something that makes you unique or, find an industry where you can differentiate yourself.

6. Complacency.

The 6th sign of the of the 8 signs of an Imploding Business is that Blockbuster is the poster child for business failures in recent history. The main reason that the company went kaput was it failed to acknowledge that its customers wanted something different. Instead of driving to their local Blockbuster and paying hefty late fees, people enjoyed having Netflix deliver or stream movies. Reportedly, Netflix executives offered a partnership with Blockbuster around 2000 but were laughed out of the office by Blockbuster execs.

In short, complacency was Blockbuster’s demise.

If you’re sitting there wondering why your business is in danger, ask yourself when was the last time that your business introduced something new into the market?

8 signs of an Imploding Business.

7. Employee turnover and hiring turnovers.

The 7th sign of the of the 8 signs of an Imploding Business is that sometimes your employees realize that there’s a problem before you do. Whether it’s as obvious as not getting paid, or subtler like no longer believing in your business or frustration with management, you need to get to the root cause of high employee turnover.

It costs more money to hire and train new employees than to retain the employees that you currently have. Things can get real tricky when you don’t have the budget to replace those employees. That means that you’re expecting your already frustrated and overworked staff to do more work for you. How much longer do you think they’ll put up with that? It’s a vicious cycle that can ultimately bury your business. 

8. There are serious cash flow struggles.

The final in this article of the 8 signs of an Imploding Business is that cash flow negative. It’s generally accepted that if you want your business to survive it has to have a positive cash flow, which means that you’re bringing in enough money to manage all of your expenses.

If you’re having cash flow problems due to debts, poor bookkeeping, growing too quickly, and not accurately forecasting your future earning and spending, then there’s one of the most obvious warning signs that your company is going under. If not correctly dealt with, don’t expect to keep your business open very much longer.
