The Six Sides to a Successful Business

In business, symbols and messages are the heart and foundation. Visions are created from symbols and missions are driven by its message or meaning. Over the past five years as a business owner, I have learned that every business needs six elements to be successful. Therefore I have chosen the Hexagon to represent the following business elements:


  1. Community -  Support by way of mentors, accountability partners and your team

  2. Efficiency - Processes and strategies for networking, follow-up and building relationships (the heart of your business)

  3. Communication - How you express your business vision and mission through marketing and your brand

  4. Balance -  Discussions on the ever-changing balance between your work life and personal life

  5. Interface - Systems are the pulse of your business

  6. Resources - Tools and products to enhance your overall business operations​
