Dr. Jordan Sudberg, a pain management specialist, has seen plenty of businesses in his time as a doctor. He’s seen the good ones, the bad ones, and even the downright ugly ones. Jordan has had his fair share of experience with what it takes to be successful in business. However, he’s been through more than that – he knows what it takes to be successful and stay that way when you’re just starting your venture. “You have to work hard, and you have to put all of your blood, sweat, and tears into it. You have to be devoted if you want it to be successful.”
One of the biggest mistakes a business owner can make is believing that their first product is the only one they should build. There are millions of different products on the market, and only some of them will be worthwhile making for one’s business. Jordan has seen many business owners come across this problem. “They have a product that they think is going to be successful because they’ve spent so much time and effort on it, but they usually are not successful when trying to sell it in the market.”
Along with spending time and energy on one’s product, there needs to be a plan or goals for moving forward. Jordan recommends that business owners outline what their goals are for their business. “They should take responsibility for each and every goal that they had as a starting point. If they do that, then they can add new goals as they move forward.”
Jordan is a firm believer in knowing what it takes to be successful initially, but he also recommends that business owners lead their way into the future by having a plan. “It’s going to be different when you start a business from scratch than when you take over an established company. A plan is good for both types of businesses. It’s important to have a goal for each specific goal.” Having a plan for each goal will help you keep on track and stay on track throughout the whole process.
Dr. Jordan Sudberg believes it is crucial for business owners to find out who their customers are and their needs. “If your customers are happy, they’ll be more likely to return. If they have kept their customer base happy, then they can expect that they will continue to prefer their product or service over any other product they may buy. That will establish their business as one that customers can come to for good, old fashion service.” The more your customers come back, the stronger your business will be.
Having a good relationship with someone that can help them out can do wonders for a business. Jordan recommends finding someone in the area willing to help them with their product or service “while paying them back by giving them some of their product as a favor.” He believes it’s essential to have someone on board who believes in them and wants to help them succeed.
