What Makes A Winner In Business?

Wed 29th, Jul

Liverpool is an exhilarating place to do business.  You can feel the energy that our city-region’s businesses project. You can almost touch it.

Independent businesses in particularare integral to the city’s fabric and that’s why we launched the MIB awards in 2012 as we celebrated our 200thyear.The awards provide a chance to recognise those businesses that are forging ahead with grit, determination and creative thinking – the very qualities that make Liverpool and Merseyside great.

The people of Liverpool are, in my opinion, some of the proudest in the UK. We wear our culture and heritage on our sleeve.  We’ve built the UK’s second largest regional economy.  We have more than 250,000 businesses choosing to call the city home.  We have captivated the world stage with the story of our cultural and economic renaissance.It’s no surprise then that as the deadline for the third MIB awards looms, the search for the city’s most innovative and dynamic independent businesses reaches fever pitch.

But what makes a successful business?  Winners in business have clear aspirations, defined goals, drive and a clear sense of responsibility.  They know how to compete, to change and flex as markets change and have the passion to keep going.They write their own success with confidence.

Those of you who know my passion for tenniswon’t be surprised when I draw comparison between the game and the world of commerce. For me, Wimbledon Women’s Champion Serena Williams sums it perfectly.She said:  “Tennis is mostly mental. You win or lose the match before you even go out there.”

This message chimes well with business and judges for this year’s MIB will be looking for entries that show confidence and bravery in their decision-making,tackle challenges with innovation, deliver growth in the face of adversity, capitalise on new opportunities and wave the flag for Merseyside.

Past MIB winners Mattas, The Brink and CyberHost Pro are part of Liverpool’s success story and proof of why the city has earned its place as one of the UK’s leading business destinations.

It’s too early to know who will be crowned the most worthy independent businesses of 2015?But if you act quickly, it could well be you.

To enter Morecrofts MIB awards visit www.mibawards.co.uk.  The closing date for entries is 14th August 2015.  The awards will culminate with a glittering black tie dinner at the Rum Warehouse on 1st October and the winner of ‘Independent Business of The Year’ will be gifted a £10,000 businesssupport package.

chool to study, although I abandoned two years of high school, but I still remain optimistic. Air Max Shoes on Sale It was from that Cheap Air Jordan Shoes time that I became quiet and became quiet. On the results, I do not want to say more. I have worked hard, there is no good regret. Last year, I graduated.To the university, only to find that they did not imagine so strong. Alone on the outside, perhaps too far away from home, only to know the feeling of home. I always insist on a word, people can be ordinary, but not mediocre. I try to forge ahead. I can suffer, I always let myself insist and then insist, I try to make money, very economical, very economical. I went to college no longer have my parents a penny, even though parents are worried.Military training, I did not go, alone in the city wandering, traveled the streets, looking for a cooperation. Until today, I still admire their courage at that time. Thank you, some people may be out of appreciation or sympathy, gave me the opportunity to cooperate, I made money, to their favorite people bought a set of clothes, although very cheap. In school, I started the industry, the last failure ended, I opened the shop. Others are always polite call me Sun total, I know, I also understand that this is ironic, I still glad to accept, give them the most kind of smile. A long time ago, I was not angry with others. Smile is the way I treat others. In March, a man away from me, let me slump. I feel no longer climb up, and lost to know how to cherish, although I do not think it is my fault, at least I was sincere, but also feel sorry. I began to free the world, to a lot of places to relax. Want to sing, and finally chose to give up, tired heart. However, I have been very kind, very good, or will be innocent to pay and change. In June, I went home. Home up the water, the warehouse was submerged, suffered heavy losses. In the face of Wang Yang, the kind of desperate realm, I am very frank, I have so far for me was the first surfers are not parents and shocked, but her, away from me. I still laughed, I hope that laughter can resolve my pain, but more reluctantly my mood. In July, I opened a tutorial. I am frustrated by the constant problems, the collective strikes of employees, the control of urban management, the vicious competition of others, all the problems I have to carry over a person. I did not want to give up what, I just want to work hard to prove their own strong. Later, she came back, I did not care about her original departure, I am very tolerant to accept. Give her the best, do my best. Try to change her, the results of a question you ask yourself in the end changed no, I hurt very thorough, on her, I exhausted my mind, enough of the wronged, but I still do not care about these, but some fear. Sometimes, I can save a few dollars, go a long way. Sometimes I can send myself with instant noodles, and then always be careful to ask her what to eat, although now she is not my. I said I can endure hardships, I can in the street a person pull the car to transport tables and chairs, I can burn a meal to the staff to eat. Two tutorial classes, back and forth on the road never bought a bottle of mineral water. I do not know what power is driving me to do that, I just feel that I can endure hard, I can be better for others.To friends, I will be generous, no longer care about those trivial, I make money, the guests are invited. I bought air conditioning for my grandmother, and I bought a remote control for my brother and bought a new computer for my family. Only promised to someone to buy iphone did not do, I feel very guilty. As well as Hao Liang students, had to shoot with the film, the results of poor care, the conditions of hard, hope forgive me Of course, I will continue to work hard. I am on their own requirements, still very low, I used the parents used the phone, I wear discount clothes,
