How Much Do You Know About Your Business Cycle?

Business Life Cycle Versus Plant Life Cycle

The way I see the growth of my Internet business is similar to the way I understand a plant life cycle. Let’s take an apple tree for example. The apple trees analogue perfectly resembles an internet business.

In as much as I may want to eat the apples today, I have no choice but to wait patiently until the growth life cycle is complete. So, having PATIENCE is key.

Meanwhile, I need to do all it takes to make sure the seed I have planted grows. And also reaches its maturity stage for it to bear fruits. How do I achieve this? By nurturing the apple tree, watering it and protecting the plant to make sure nothing breaks its branches.

In the same way an apple tree goes through the stages of its life cycle: spreading seeds; germination; growth and reproduction, my internet business also travels along a similar route:niche finding; website creating; getting site SEO ready; content writing followed by more and content writing. Finally, monetizing content.

I'm just sharing to encourage someone and that includes myself. It seems I have found myself a new niche I may venture into in the future. That is, the niche of encouragement but it sounds too broad. I will see how it goes!
