PhrenologyHeadI’ve been watching, with interest, a thread on the Warrior Forum where folks are debating the changes that have taken place since new owners took over.

Change is inevitable. Change often has as many detractors as it has supporters.

The detractors can sometimes be people who have an investment in things staying the same. Sometimes they are people who have a scarcity mentality and they are afraid of losing something.

The supporters can be people who see an opportunity that the change may bring. Or maybe they are simply glass half full folks who see abundance and potential.

Either way, you cannot please all the people all of the time!

Now to my point…

You’re likely to be someone who is in business. After all, that’s my target audience! If you’re in business then you will know that mindset is critically important.

Business is about generating the best possible return on your investment (ROI) and making a profit. If, like me, you are self employed then you’re the only stakeholder. If, on the other hand, you work for a corporate organisation, then you know the owners or shareholders want to see their investment put to the best use possible.

So, if you are confronted by change, put your business, or entrepreneurial, hat on and think about what’s in your. or your business’s best interests. It’s not about sentimentality, it”s about growing our business and our profit. It’s about having the right mindset.

The new owners of the Warrior Forum are business people, their job is exactly the same as ours… to maximise ROI. They have to balance the needs of the forum members and users with the needs of their shareholders. It’s a tightrope, there will be times when they are off balance and times when they are in control… but it’ll always be a tightrope when you have people involved in a community like a forum.
