Do you love working 7 days a week? Every week?
You didn’t start a business just so you could never have a real break. You tell people to call you any time, and your days (and nights!) are a continuous stream of alerts and interruptions. There’s so much hitting your inbox, so many messages to keep up with, and so much stuff that you have to do, you feel like the only way to keep on top of it is by eating into your family time and your personal time.
Are you checking your mobile at all hours?
Having your phone with you all the time (even when you’re in bed) isn’t helping. For all the good intentions you’ve made about getting your time back or become more productive, you still feel like there are always monkeys on your back. The universe doesn’t respect your time.
Does your business stop when you take time off?
In fact, do you ever take time off?
Have you become the bottleneck in your own business? It doesn’t have to be like that.
What if you designed your business differently?
Imagine not working 7 days a week, every week. Imagine taking weekends off. Even a holiday.
And, just imagine that when you did take that break, your business would keep running without you. In fact, it’s running better than ever before.
Here’s how it looks:
You’re making more money, you’re pricing your services so you don’t have to scramble for more revenue all the time and everything runs like clockwork. You delegate and outsource the stuff you don’t absolutely have to do yourself so you can focus on the stuff where you really add value.
That’s what a growing, successful business looks like. One where you are not the bottleneck and you’ve broken through the things holding you back now.
That dream is not as far away as you may think.
You can reclaim your life, and still run a strong and profitable business
Instead of you still being the technician in your business, but without having a boss, your business could be run very differently.
In his best-selling book, The E-Myth (Revisited), Michael E. Gerber explains that being a successful business owner means that you get to see the business vision as a whole.
That means understanding not just your profit goals, but the real purpose behind the business.
What legacy do you want to leave behind?
The more important your business is, the more your work should connect to that big purpose.
But how do you get to that? In a word: systems. By creating systems of how your business should serve your end customers, you’re not relying on the best and smartest people to make critical decisions.
For most of us, we’re so busy running our business, doing stuff, that stepping back and looking at the bigger picture seems a luxury. You really need to have someone do that with you.
And then, if you find yourself too busy working, it means you’re spending too much time doing, and not so much innovating or passing on that innovation to your team.
My coaching will help you build those systems, and connect your daily work to your ultimate goal, your big reason for being in business in the first place.
My services help you get out of the “technician’s mindset” that keeps you driving to do hands-on work. And I identify exactly where the roadblocks are that are stopping you from moving on to the “entrepreneur’s mindset”.
