Taking a Holistic Approach to Your Business

February 03, 20243 min read

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any way you choose.” - Dr. Suess

As a holistic attorney, I advocate for entrepreneurs seeking to make a meaningful impact in the world by integrating legal integrity into their mission-driven endeavors. Embracing a holistic approach to business means not only prioritizing social and environmental responsibility but also ensuring compliance with legal standards and ethical practices. By intertwining legal mindfulness with their noble aspirations, entrepreneurs can cultivate sustainable ventures that resonate with their values while fostering positive change in society.

With that said, here are 7 things to consider when looking at your business holistically 🤓

1. Mission and Values

Start by understanding the company's mission and values. This will give you a sense of the company's purpose and priorities. Your mission can serve as a beacon for developing strategies that will help you accomplish your goals. Your values will help you create aligned products and services, and foster relationships with employees, vendors, and customers.

2. Products and Services

Next, look at the company's products and services. Consider how they are developed, marketed, and sold, and how they fit into the overall strategy of the business. How do your products and services fit into your business as they are aligned with your company's mission and values?

3. Customers

Think about the company's target audience and customer base. Consider their needs, preferences, and behaviors, as well as the ways in which the company interacts with them. How do your values affect your relationships with your customers? What can you develop to have a positive impact on their experience with your company?

4. Operations

Consider the company's day-to-day operations, including production processes, supply chain management, and other logistical concerns. What systems can you implement that will make your business run smoother? What can you develop with a long-term strategy in mind?

5. Finances

Look at the company's financial statements and performance metrics. Consider revenue, expenses, profits, and other key indicators of financial health. Do you have any financial blocks when it comes to finance? What can you do to improve your relationship with money to help boost your financial mindset? Hire someone who not only is knowledgeable with finance, but is aligned with your values and is driven to help your company succeed financially.

6. Employees and Contractors

Consider the company's workforce, including hiring practices, training programs, and employee retention strategies. What can you implement that will assist your employees and contractors with accomplishing their tasks? What types of incentives and environment can you create that will help foster your relationships with your employees and incentivize them to help your company succeed?

7. Industry and Competition

Finally, think about the larger industry and competitive landscape in which the company operates. Consider the company's position relative to its competitors and any external factors that may impact its success. How does your company stand out from others? What is your competition doing that you can do better?

By considering these different areas and how they all work together, you can develop a more holistic understanding of a business and its operations. You can devise a strategy that incorporates your long term vision of success for your business while improving your business relationships.
