Guide Yourself To Run Your Own Mobile Bike Business

What I have found with running my own highly successful business, is that you can't do it alone. I don't mean that you need to employ people, but you need people as your customers. Without them there is no business.

Q. What does it mean to you - To be successful in business?

A. Success means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Money? Power? Fame?  I ask to try to help us understand why we do what we do….
  • You have become a legend in the cycle community. Customers who are happy with your work, they return and tell their friends.
  • You have time to do the things you want (More time for cycling)
  • You are able to help other reach their success.
Q. How will you achieve this? Do we ever reach this?

A. Maybe just maybe its taking small steps and/or being successful each and everyday by having the ability to enjoy what we do and being grateful.  

People often say; I don't want to be rich, I just want to be comfortable. To get rich or to be successful, you need to get uncomfortable to make things happen. If you don't change you will keep producing the same out come.

Learn to Organise and Manage Situations

The two most powerful words:
That will make or brake you "I AM"
I AM the greatest, I AM good at what I do, I AM happy, I AM..........
Or I AM stupid, I AM not cleaver, I AM sad, I AM ........
Tell yourself; I can do that or I could do that. And NOT I should do that.

We all make mistakes, that's how we learn. You could say you have failed! But by saying I have a situation. This will make it easier to deal with each mistake. It's how to deal with your mistakes that make's the difference between success and fail. You are always learning and becoming more organised to deal with your business and everyday life issues.
If you are the type of person who keep's starting something new and never finishes, then you need to look at yourself first, at what can you do to change, so you complete what you really should be doing.

On this Blog I often talk about what type of person makes their business successful or not and those who *fail end up returning to their old job. This post is about what makes this real and is down to your decisions that only you can make. I also talk a lot about putting pen to paper and start making your plan - you may be surprised but only 2 % of new businesses do this...............
*Fail - There is nothing wrong with failing, it's how we deal with it, learn from it and try again that makes us successful

Writing down goals allows you to create a crystal-clear focus of what you want and shows a great degree of commitment.

When I started my mobile bike business, late in 2007 I had to be very creative with how to be found, as funds was low and mobile bike business was almost unknown. The Saturday Bike Clinic was a huge susses, not only with being found as a local bike mechanic. It was like a magnet to those across the UK looking to setup their own bike business. Soon I was having people visit me on a Saturday to talk and see my operation. And Cycle Tech UK was born, to what has become the largest network of mobile bicycle mechanics in the world.
From one person who liked helping others build their dream and share experiences has now passed on to 40 or more bicycle mechanics who can also continue to help support each other to grow their business and those in our network.
