Momentum – the impetus and driving force gained by the development of a process or course of events.
In business nothing happens over night, even when you hear the term “over night success” there has been a labor of love, dedication, frustration, trials and errors behind the scenes. The variable you do not see throughout the process is momentum. No matter what obstacles you encounter in starting your own business you have to keep going.
To avoid losing momentum you should plan your goals in small steps. Make them realistic and tangible. It’s so easy for insecurities to creep up on us and distract us, keep your vision in mind and you will not have time to deviate from your goals. Having a process in place to balance work and life is equally important to keeping up your momentum. Putting all your energy into building your business seems inevitable however it can burn you out quickly. Remember to reward yourself after reaching small and major milestones, this will help rejuvenate your spirit and keep the momentum going.
To keep up my momentum I try to write down all my ideas, read books on self improvement, inspirational quotes, and continuously invest in myself to stay inspired and motivated. All of these activities add to building and keeping momentum.
Hello my name is Laing, I am the founder of Laing & Company Inc., a Business Consulting and Accounting Firm. Laing & Co. specializes in business start ups and financial compliance. We also offer branding, web design and multiple design services to complete our creative solutions for businesses. The vision of Laing & Co. is to be the leading business and financial consultant for local small businesses. Our business is service. If you don’t know where to begin, we do.
With over 18 years of experience working for companies like JP Morgan Chase, HSBC, and Wells Fargo with a portfolio of Small Business clients I have seen many situations that small businesses encounter. No single approach is the right one for every single business, we offer a range of modalities to ensure your business is set up for success.
My greatest passion is being of service and helping clients navigate the backend of business ownership. This allows them to focus on what they are great at…which is running their business. When a client is successful then I am successful. I strive to elevate the personal experience that creates a life long client and successful entrepreneurs.
In my spare time (what’s that) I enjoy spending time with family, reading thrillers, and being outdoors.
During the process of starting my business I was completely lost. I know what I wanted the outcome to be, I just didn’t know how to go about doing it, and then I heard about Laing & Co. I started an online clothing business and decided that I wanted to transition from the internet to a store front. I received an overwhelming amount of information when I reached out to SBA, and I wasn’t really given any direction. When I had the pleasure of meeting Laing, she listened to my concept and helped set goals while mapped out what would be in the best interest of my company’s growth and success. She assisted me with obtaining an EIN number, registered my business, and opening up my business bank account, all I had to do was sign the paperwork. I am more than 100% satisfied with my experience with Laing & Co. I would CERTAINLY recommend them to other business owners, old and new. ~ D. Liles
Laing & Co. comes packed with several years of business knowledge gathered mostly from small business owners who’ve made major mistakes that needs to be fixed. As a result, Laing & Co. knows exactly what it takes to properly incorporate small businesses, maintain their books during the year AND report earnings to the IRS at the end of the year. This is all done while ensuring small businesses are in compliance with the State of North Carolina. I highly recommend Laing & Co. as a Small Business Consultant.
