Find your Niche to Win your Business
Last Sunday, I woke up late due to an extended clubhouse meeting on Saturday night and late for the morning walk. Most of my weekend friends left except the one waiting over there. He smiles BIG at me, and it hints that he was waiting for me. Exchanged regular wishes and said that he was waiting to discuss something important.
I immediately said yes, as I was not in a perfect mood to go for a walk on that day.
He started, ‘I lost my job last week and am sick of searching for another one. I wish to start a business but am unable to find one that suits me. Have a lot of ideas and choosing one is very difficult.
Asked few questions, analysed his ability, and narrow it down to a few so that he can choose one.
He left with a happy face, and I also got one new client for my business. Helping people will generate more trusted clients for your business, so help. (Will right on this topic soon)
I thought of sharing it with you all. It is not the exact one that we discussed. Overall this would help you to fin your niche.
