Some of the fabulous RedBalloon team

I’m often asked what is the greatest concern that I have – ‘what keeps me awake at night?’
The only thing that concerns me is did I do everything I could to support, assist and grow the team around me.
It is kind of an upside down world here at RedBalloon. I see my role as serving the team – who of course then serve our customers.
It is not external things like interest rates, or retail trade figures that concern me – the only things I do worry about – is did I do enough….
Really we can only ever concern ourselves with things that we can influence. It is pointless to worry about those things out of our control.
I was asked recently at a speaking engagement and I was asked– ‘Do you have a social media policy?’  Call me naïve, but I know my commitment to the team, and our supply community – and really if anyone feels that they want to voice externally rather than bring something to our attention internally – then I have failed them.
I rely on all those around me to be straight, authentic and to be able to challenge what we do.
Debate in business is good – the last thing I want is a bunch of ‘yes’ men.
If it’s meant to be it’s up to me.

Grow & Scale Your Business by Naomi Simson

Tell Naomi a little bit about your business by completing the questions below. (It will take less than 60 seconds)

Answering your #1 Biggest Business Challenge question tip: 

Go beyond just saying "Poor Cashflow" or "Unreliable Team". 

Instead, give Naomi details & specifics on how this is currently your #1 Biggest Business Challenge. 

I.e. "Every month I'm struggling to pay my bills on time because there just isn't consistent cash flow coming into the business. I've tried sticking to budgets in the past & pay myself less to keep some extra funds aside for emergencies, but still every month there seems to be another financial fire to be put out. I don't know what to do about it, so I'm just grinding it out."
