5 Keys To The Importance of Flexibility In Business

Flexibility In Business

You know how many things in life don’t always work out as you’d planned?

It happens a lot doesn’t it?

But guess what?

It’s the same with your online business.

We’re not talking here about bolts of lightning from the blue or crises of tsunami proportions. We’re talking about niggly issues that throw unexpected speed bumps in your way without warning – which requires the need for flexibility in business.

The famous Scottish poet Robert Burns said it best when he penned:

“The best-laid schemes o' mice an' men gang aft agley”

 Or in ‘english’ 🙂

“The best laid plans of mice and men, go often awry”

Watch this video of a real life example of flexibility in business (it’s only 57 secs long):

The key reason why we’re sharing our 5 key tips to maintain flexibility in business is that . . .

We’ve just had our main YouTube channel shut down . . . not because we were breaching their community guidelines (why would we – that would be brain dead!) – but because some rogue person out there has decided to take a dislike to us because of our success, and they know that YouTube have an automatic, human-less, complaints process – therefore it lacks human reason and rationality.

So our page rank 4 channel was there one day and gone the next!


It’s a nuisance because in this instance having flexibility in business means interrupting doing income producing tasks to restore backup copies of all videos so we could re-link them in our blog posts.

However, it’s just a speed bump that can be overcome.

PS: If you find a video here on this site where the link doesn’t work, we’d appreciate you letting us know  😀

We believe flexibility in business is an art. As it’s an art to have the ability to react, adapt, and change – and thrive as a result.

In truth,

That’s the beauty of having a digital business working from home – you can shift gear when circumstances dictate and you can alter your focus in the morning and see results by the evening.

5 key tips to maintain flexibility in business are:

1.        Don’t set a course and blindly stick to it

2.        Don’t just do what others tell you

3.        Don’t accept everything as it first seems

4.        Always keep developing your vision and your goals

5.        When your vision changes, change direction with it

So the real truth about flexibility in business is having the speed to adapt.

The first step to adapting quickly hinges on not being disappointed when there’s a ‘fly in the ointment’ – or we’d go as far to say – expect speed bumps and celebrate days when there aren’t any.

In a nutshell . . . accept that there will be change when you least expect it!

The second step is taking action quickly to avoid any fallout. So, maintain the flexibility to adjust to change. The great thing here, with regards home based digital businesses is that such change is totally within your control.

    This is a disturbing development in Social Media – that your months of good honest work can be lost without recourse or warning. Social Media has taken over the role of Big Brother. Basing a business on Social Media must now be considered as only a short term strategy for getting started or boosted.

    You’re right Jeffri – that’s why we always tell people of the importance to have their own authority website!

    Because your own website is your own domain (or real estate) on the internet, that you control, and can do whatever you want with it.

    The trouble with social media platforms is that you don’t have total control, you don’t set the rules, and you can’t do anything when they rules change with little notice!

    The only thing that can happen to our website is that it gets hacked (which has happened twice already), or we don’t pay the hosting! We’re happy with those odds 🙂
