Easy tips to innovate
‘Innovation’ is a word frequently used in a lot of business models nowadays. But actions always speak louder than words. So here are some easy tips for you to get ahead in the innovation game:
Believe in your idea
There aren’t a lot of entrepreneurs who make decisions all by themselves without consulting someone for feedback. Our own CEO still needs the opinions of his wife before he takes any big decision. But sometimes, it is better to just go with your own idea before you listen to the opinions of others. Your idea is not theirs. It’s innovative, so it’s new. They don’t know it, so they will always find a way to criticise. And they won’t be able to get the business up and running like you do. Believe in yourself and if you want to get on the innovative entrepreneuring train – just do it.
And if you do like feedback on your project, turn to a professional. Someone who might share your enthusiasm and has just the right innovative know-how for your dream. At Amotek, we have a lot of these professionals!
Dare to sacrifice
Being an entrepreneur can mean you have to sacrifice a couple of things. Your private time, for example. But sacrifices don’t always lead to losing something. Big losses can be big wins too. For example, your company has already invested in a digital solution for a recurring problem. Now apparently you chose the wrong solution. It feels like a failure, but is it? In our experience, we know that the best innovative solutions exist thanks to the failure of an earlier one.
In technology, you often get promised a ready-to-go solution for your business. But they will rarely solve all your problems, because your company is yours and not anybody else’s. That’s why Amotek builds personal platforms, so you won’t have to sacrifice investments already made.
It’s not an easy thing to do, but it’s a thing all entrepreneurs have to do from time to time: checking their business’ health. Is your business futureproof? Can it afford some upscaling? How can you digitalize some of your ways of working? Is there nothing that can make this process or that communication easier? And when you have a negative answer to this questions, it’s time to come clear. Be honest, ask for help and make your business happy and healthy again. We’d love to assist you.
