Working harder but momentum has slowed?
Not getting the rewards you deserve?
Could you be the bottleneck in your business?
What goals did you have when you started your business?
It takes a certain type of person to make the sacrifices and take the risks involved in starting your own business. Lost holidays, family events missed, even risking your home as collateral. It certainly isn't for the faint-hearted!
Yet the excitement and sense of achievement make it all worthwhile when the rewards are in sight.
But what happens when progress slows and hopes fade, even though you're still working flat out?
"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."
Sound familiar? You are not alone
Many business owners reach a stage where growth stalls and profits decline leaving them working harder for less. For some, it prompts a change in direction, from working in their business to working on it.
But others maintain the intensity, don't look up, believing sheer determination will make the breakthrough. Sadly, it rarely does.
Building for success
Have you noticed how successful business owners seem less stressed and have more free time? They work less hours, have more time with their friends and family and take longer holidays.
How do they do it?
Their success isn't down to luck, working harder or natural ability. The most successful business owners we work with find ways to take the weight off their shoulders and get their business working for them.
They build teams and systems, the levers to lighten their workload bringing them the time and energy to focus on the big picture.
They build a business that looks after them.
They understand the difference between being the driving force of the business - contributing their ideas, passion and skills - and being the bottleneck, stifling growth by not letting go.
They use up to date management information to understand how their business is performing, what’s working and what’s not. So they make better, more informed decisions on the direction the business takes.
In short, they manage the work rather than do the work!
Is there a better way?
If you ask yourself this at the end of a long, tiring day, the answer is YES!
