The Innovator Mindset With Bob Moesta #MakingBank #S7E15
We’ve often spoken about the power of innovation. Most entrepreneurs will tell you about how it is key to innovate. You want to ensure you stay relevant in an ever-changing world. You need to stand out from your competitors. It isn’t a choice anymore, but is a must-have for growth. Head to our episode on Making Bank where we delve into the ‘Innovator Mindset’ with Bob Moesta, President & CEO of the Re-Wired Group. In this article, let’s explore why innovation is vital for you.
Think of innovation as essential. It is as important to your business as pumping blood is to your veins. As an entrepreneur, you face various challenges in your day-to-day. If you inculcate the type of mindset where you are thinking innovatively all the time, you will find challenges fun! Creative thinking will give birth to unique solutions. You will create value by just thinking differently. We’ve heard how businesses thrive when they have a problem. A new product is born. A new solution is offered to people. This is possible by solving these problems innovatively.
When you are innovating, you are closer to driving growth. Look at your products and services today. Step back and observe the systems and processes your company is working by. Think about how you can improvise. You can cut costs by streamlining your expenses and bringing in productivity. There are often simpler ways to do things than the way we have been accustomed to. By constantly upgrading what you offer you can meet evolving customer needs and stay relevant. With the huge market out there, customers have a lot of options available at the click of a button. Innovate to give them what they need, and you will retain customers and gain new ones too. Many businesses start off well but cannot sustain their performance. Their inability to innovate brings failure. Innovation helps entrepreneurs to create entirely new markets, establishing themselves as industry leaders.
Innovation helps you stay in the game longer. We live in a world of volatility and uncertainty. If you look back at the business space over the last decade, a lot has changed. The one skill that helps you stay afloat is the ability to adapt. We can adapt if we know what steps to take. The key to that — innovate! Entrepreneurs must be agile and resilient. In doing so, they can quickly pivot strategies in case of an unexpected situation. They can also tap new markets, and leverage emerging technologies to seize new opportunities that arise. A lot of uncharted territory remains untouched because people do not have the vision to notice it.
We hope you get the idea — innovation is a must for entrepreneurial success. It drives growth and fosters competitiveness. If you haven’t prioritized it yet, we highly suggest you do. Delegate work that you can, so that you have time specifically to think creatively. Push existing boundaries and create groundbreaking products. Your customers will be delighted!
