Customize What You Do

June 10th, 2014

Dress for the job you want, not the job you have

Today’s post is by Margaret Stewart, Executive Assistant at SafeSourcing.

Many of us have heard the popular phrase, “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” No, coming to work dressed as Batman doesn’t count, but the underlying idea is the same. You should customize what you do, based on where you want to go.

I recently read about the popular snack brand, Cheetos, and I was not surprised to learn that the brand is available in 36 different countries. I was, however, surprised to learn how much the snack is altered for cultural preference in order to succeed. For example, in Japan the snack comes in a Zesty Japanese Steak flavor. In China, they have a Strawberry Cheetos flavor.

My take away from that article was about how each and every thing your business does, should be tailored to the results you want. This means doing the research of the areas you want to start doing business and asking the questions like, “What are the cultural preferences here? Will my product or service succeed as-is or should it be more customized?”

The first step toward understanding how to customize your business for success, is first to know the specifications you are working with. When you know everything that is involved with your product, you can be more aware of what could be improved or customized for greater success. One you know those specifications, then the next step is sourcing the things you need to make your product the most sensational it can be.
