Rejuvenating an established business:
How to revive your business when enthusiasm and energy wane
About this stage
Just like an older tree, a well established business will almost always benefit from a little pruning, clearing away some of the undergrowth surrounding it and removing the ivy climbing up its trunk, in order to create some space for the new growth.
Older businesses often have too many branches – they’ve lost focus and will benefit from some objective help to choose the best way forward. When you have been running the same business for a long time it’s hard to see new opportunities – to see the wood when you are in amongst the trees.
On top of that, after several years the sap is not quite as strong as it used to be and your enthusiasm has probably waned a little. Enthusiasm is the primary driver of business success. But it’s common for business owners to sometimes lose heart after doing the same thing for many years – new ideas and moving forward again just seems too difficult.
