You Are Managing Your Employees, But Who Is Managing You?
"Where Your Time And Efforts Go, So Too Goes Your Company"
How many of you seem to get caught up in daily life and get pulled in a million directions? Before you know it, the day is over and you have not accomplished half of what was on your to-do list? This is is a pretty normal situation for small business owners. All it seems to take is one phone call or one email to derail the entire day's agenda. The to-do list just keeps growing because you put things on the back burner that really need to get done.
But the fact of the matter is you have to get all of those things done. You have to focus on all the tasks at hand - especially the revenue generating tasks. The ones that have the potential to push the business onward and upward. Often these are the tasks that get pushed back the most. They are usually time consuming, and possibly expensive, and sometimes even scary.
I bet you thought that when you went into business for yourself you would never have to answer to anyone. That is simply not true. There is a reason larger companies have a board of directors or some sort of management - the business needs structure and accountability. There has to be a person, or group of people, to be there to nudge you in the right direction when you are not accomplishing the projects that should be your main focus. So ask yourself these questions:
- Who is your ideal client?
- What is your unique selling proposition - what sets you apart from your competitors?
- What specific goals do you have for the next six months to grow your business?
- What programs/packages do you have in place to reach your revenue goals?
- What types of marketing strategies are you using to get more clients?
- Do you have a timeline to achieve these strategies?
- What are you spending your energy on while running your business?
If you don't know how to answer the above questions, then my program is for you.
How It Works:
Month 1: We set up a laser coaching session to get to the bottom of what you have done, what you are doing, and what you want to accomplish. We set up a road map where we cover every inch of what needs to happen in the next six months.
Months 2 - 6: We meet monthly to go over what is working for you and what is not. We re-evaluate and re-adjust when needed. Monthly progress reports are required, and you will have email/text access for every questions or concern you have. We go over ways to make sure you are on track with all your goals that can include everything from utilizing new technology to reaching out to other professionals for help if needed.
That's it. Simple, yet effective when a roadmap is in place - and someone who will make you STICK TO IT.
Accountability is a must have for every small business owner. So get comfortable with being uncomfortable. The longer you run from someone holding you accountable, the longer it will take for you to achieve your goals and put your business in the position you want it to be in. I, personally, have someone who holds me accountable because I practice what I preach.
