A lot goes into seeing a business succeed. When it comes to your gelato business, you probably already know this. For example, you may have already purchased the product, the gelato spoons, maybe even some side items you can serve. But your success will depend on more than just gelato cups and spoons. Keep reading to find out more.
You need to start by taking every task necessary for your shop to succeed and turning it into the smallest, actionable steps possible. This way when you hand these steps off to others, they won’t be listening to broad items in vague language.
Apply excellence to everything you do in the shop. Remember that there is no step you’re taking that doesn’t deserve your full dedication. “How you do one thing is how you do everything” is a great expression here. It means that you need to put just as much effort into stacking gelato cups and cleaning the bathroom as you do in greeting customers and counting money.
Be patient in the beginning. Most overnight success stories are the stuff of Hollywood. More often than not, success takes years of hard work before it appears. So if you’re not seeing huge numbers in your profits from the get-go, take comfort in knowing your normal. Stop focusing on that negative, be patient and get back to work!
