Are you struggling to grow your business?

Are you struggling trying to grow your business? Are you having sleepless nights worrying about growth? Do you feel constantly overwhelmed and out of control? Are your employees running your business ‘their’ way, constantly complaining and not delivering the service your customer wants and is paying for?

Does this sound like you, all stressed out, exhausted or worse still thinking of throwing in the towel? I bet you thought none of these problems would ever happen to you when you decided to start your own business, right?

If you would like to get out of the daily grind in your business and be a Business Owner that enjoys your business and life while making the money you would like, there are two simple mindset shifts you need to make to start moving in the right direction:

1) You are now a Business Owner – right! You are one of the elite few who have made the shift and going it alone. But this requires a completely different mind and skill-set than being an employee. You now need to start working “ON” your business rather than “IN” your business! Without this shift, you will probably find yourself in the same place or maybe in a much worse position twelve months from now.

2) Think of your business as a product rather than what you provide or do. What do I mean by this? Everything you do in your business should be all about developing a process and building equity. Have you seen the movie ‘The Founder’? If you haven’t then go see it. It’s all about McDonalds founder Ray Kroc played by Michael Keaton who built the McDonalds brand into what it is today. Let’s face it McDonalds is not only a fast food chain, it it is first and foremost tried, tested and proven process to anyone that wants it and can pay the price to have it. Can you achieve such results in your business?

What you need is a great product or service, well trained employees, a business process, a marketing system that works every time, a proven sales system, a financial system with KPI’s and an operations system. The objective is to leave nothing to chance in your own business, everything must work together like a well oiled machine.

Think of how you can build your business into a turn-key operation that someone else would want that can be duplicated. Now you have a recipe for success. You will be in a position to get your life back, make more money than you ever thought you could and start to sleep like a baby at night with no worries. How sweet does that sound!

To create a business that will work without you takes time with the right mind and skill set. You cannot be expected to do it on your own. You need to employee the right people for the jobs that need to be done and not necessarily like-minded people but people who will bring specific expertise with them and be able to work as part of a team. In a lot of cases it makes economic sense to employ specialists or consultants to oversee certain aspects of the business while it is evolving and growing. All the time you will be learning from their expertise while you focus on growing the business.

Having a business that works which is profitable and sustainable is every Business Owners dream!
