So the idea for this blog came – ironically – from listening to Chris’ Pandora the other day in the car. When he picked me up from the airport, Metallica (yes, I know – he’s got eclectic taste in music) was playing their song “Unforgiven III.”
Now, what struck me wasn’t the overall lyrics, although I guess they’re good, but the chorus.
“How can I be lost if I’ve got nowhere to go?”
How many business owners are – unknowingly – right there?
Simply existing in the moment, no plans for growth, no plans for scale, or systems, or even replicating themselves in their business to make life a little easier.
I’m here to tell you, it doesn’t have to be that way AND it’s a lot easier than most business owners think.
I’ll go so far as to say you can change your entire business in as little as 15 to 20 minutes of focused work a day … with little more stress than you already have.
Why? Because too many owners are working in and for a broken business they never really organized. They created a job for themselves, and just enough “systems” in that business to make ends meet, but they never really looked into how to make those systems more robust, or how to make them more efficient, and they almost NEVER continue to develop their own skills.
To practice the actual craft they base their business on.
So let’s take a step back and think about those lyrics. How can you be lost if you have nowhere to go?
What do you actually want – and expect – from your business? From this company you’ve built? It’s likely that 90% or more of the small businesses in the world were created to simply provide their owner with income, and while that’s a noble idea, in reality, it doesn’t work.
I want to change that, and I’ve got the tools to make it happen in your business.
If you’re frustrated – and maybe a little lost – then schedule a call with me. We’ll look at where you spend time in your business with tools like my Activity Tracker, we’ll look at your sales funnel, your marketing, your automation … and we’ll determine what your goals really are. In the end?
You’ll really be creating the traction that’s been missing, (and the free time, and the income) and finally moving towards your goals.
