Establish Mental Discipline To Navigate Business Challenges

In business, having a strong mindset is not the only thing that matters. It is important for you to be able to be brave and more decisive in making decision, or solve problem. However, there is also mental discipline you need to build so you can navigate business challenges the right way. It is not easy to establish mental discipline as every individual may have different tendencies and characters. For examples, some people tend to find goodness in everything. Meanwhile, some others like to victimizing themselves when bad situation occur to them. 

What you need to do to build your mental discipline

Mental discipline is also about how you acknowledge of how deserving you are to have what you want because of how hard you have worked for it while turning your mind away from ‘self-victimizing’ thoughts. You can practice your mental discipline in both entrepreneurship and relationship. Both are crucial and intertwined with each other. It is essential for you to know how to disengage bad narratives and control and manipulate them into something joyful and fulfilling for you. 

To practice mental discipline, you need to choose to stay present int he situations you encounter even if they are not ideal. This is to allow you perceive and experience magic and synchronicity. By choosing to stay present, you stop yourself from doing unnecessary thing such as fighting in denials or arguing with reality which doesn’t generate any good result but mental exhaustion. However, it is also important to know that practicing mental discipline is not an attempt to make you good at pretending to ignore what is happening both in your personal life and business life. 

When you are facing non-ideal situation, what you need to do instead of complaining is ask yourself what quality you can develop to face the situation. Focus more on what you want to be in the situation and let it guide you through actions. it allows you time to reflect in yourself instead of haphazardly trying to fix the problem or bemoaning the situation. Only then, you will be able to develop the qualities you want to have. You will no longer focus on how to control the uncontrollable that will only lead to failure and frustration and choose to increase your power and potential instead. 

Avoid adding extra meaning to the bad situation you encounter. It can lead to more confusion and frustration, making you feel like you have done something wrong where in fact it is just the situation happens. Look at every bad situation happening to your business as an opportunity for you to get more creative so you can bring in more revenue.

Practice your mental discipline by focusing more on what qualities you want to develop during hard times. This way, your mental discipline will help guide you to choose aligned actions to respond more nimbly. With good mental discipline, you will be able to keep adjusting your target while staying on track with your goals regardless of the situation you encounter along the way.

Bali Property: Setting Up Best Rent Prices for Maximised Profit

Setting Up Best Rent Prices for Your Bali Property for Maximised Profit

Calculating rental fees for your Bali property villas is not an easy task. If you price your property too high, you risk attracting guests with high expectations who feel overpriced. If you set your pricing too low, you may not be able to make a profit, and potential clients may question your property’s quality. Low prices are also more likely to attract bargain hunters looking for a good deal, who may end up destroying the establishment. So how should you put the right price for your properties in Bali? Let us assist you in developing the optimum pricing plan for your property.

Set Up the Target Market of Your Bali Property

Going online to prominent vacation lettings websites. Our favourite is this Bali property website, Kibarer, to look at thousands of villas and properties in the island comparable to yours to check out the market. Examine holiday rentals with roughly the same amount of bedrooms and amenities. Keep in mind that you must also evaluate the surrounding neighbourhood. 

Competitor Research 

/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Competitor-Research.jpg

Find similar holiday rentals in your region by narrowing your search. Examine homes that have the same amount of bedrooms, baths, and amenities like a garden, private parking, and outdoor seating. This will give you a more realistic idea of how much you can charge – though you should still keep an eye on what your competitors do throughout the year so you can change properly.

Set the Bar of Your Financial Goal from the Bali Property

Most individuals get into the holiday leasing business to supplement their income, so the first thing to think about is how much money you’ll need from your vacation let to support your living expenses (such as cleaning and laundry services, welcome baskets etc.).

Just for the laundry and cleaning, an ordinary 2/3 bedroom villa let will cost roughly IDR 500.000 per week. If you like your 3-bedroom villa’s AC on all the time and have a pool pump to run, expect to pay between IDR 2.5 and 3 million a month. Also consider insurance and upkeep bills in your accounting book. Many owners overlook these expenses, but you can’t afford to ignore them.

Prioritise Your Short and Long Term Goals

Setting up priorities of goals that you want to achieve from the property come next. Now you have rough ideas of how your Bali property villa should cost based on competitor analysis and financial goal. Next, you should be asking yourself on which one that you care the most. Do you want to make profit straightaway or do you want to develop a good reputation among holidaymakers first?

If profit is your primary objective, you may charge your competitors a similar (or even slightly higher) fee. However, if getting your holiday rental up and running with paying visitors giving reviews is your top priority, you might want to go a little lower.

Discounts Planning 

It’s great to be busy at peak periods, but what about the slow weeks? When individuals are normally too busy working to take a vacation, some of my clients want to provide special offers or discounts to persuade customers to book during off-peak seasons.

If guests are only going to utilize one room, you could try offering a ‘cosy couples’ discount – but keep in mind that the lowered cleaning expenses aren’t that great, so only a 5% or so discount might be fair.

Be unique and and relevant by crafting your message specifically for one niche segment of the marketplace.

Making broad assumptions about customers

Everything that is based on assumption often ends bad. Keep in mind that you are not your customers so making decision based on what you assume of them will do no good for your business. The result will be disappointing. Rely more on data and research to support your ideas. It is highly likely that you have different perspective with your customers. So make sure not to assume you know them well if you don’t. 

Not calculating the initial marketing thoroughly

Being all out from the initial marketing campaign to get the spark. This is marketing mistake you should avoid because investing too much money at the start of your campaign is too risky. If it fails, it costs a lot. Excess waste will be what you get. Instead, get to know who your audience first then decide what kind of campaign that work best. Slowly, you will get more data about your audience and what platform that work best for your marketing campaign. 

It is common sense to avoid the mistakes above. However, there are still many entrepreneurs and small business owners alike who still make those mistakes. Build your network with marketing experts and balance the advice you get with your knowledge of the marketplace, experience, trends, etc.
