From the Web: “Three Steps to Find the Best Opportunities for Your Business”

Mary Shores, an ACA International member and president of Midstate Collection Solutions Inc. in Champaign, Illinois, shared her three best tips for finding business opportunities as an entrepreneur in a recent article in Forbes.

In the article, Shores touches on some of the intuitive feelings an entrepreneur might tap into on the cusp of a new business venture. The following are key highlights from her recommendations:

Keep Your Eyes Open

  • Look for opportunities in the most unexpected places.
  • Foster connections everywhere because they could lead to more open doors.

Keep Your Mind Primed

  • Make sure you are in the right mindset for new opportunities—otherwise you could miss out.
  • Open your mind to new ways of thinking.

Practice for Progress

  • Practice keeping your eyes open and your mind primed for new opportunities until it becomes second nature.
  • Go out of your comfort zone and remain as open-minded as possible.
