Are you tired of being the last person who gets paid, works the longest hours and never takes time off?
Imagine for a moment what it would be like to feel in control of your business: with stable cash flow, a steady stream of new customers, and systems that leave you feeling organized (and make it easy to delegate, so you actually get to take some time off!)
Investing in business coaching and training will be the best decision you ever make for your business!
During our years of working with small business owners, entrepreneurs and their teams here is what we have observed:
You struggle with not enough time to get everything done.
It feels like you’re busy all the time, but you’re not making any progress. You feel disorganized, like things are slipping. You know you should create systems and streamline processes, but you’re too busy putting out fires. Vacation? What’s that??
Your business would be great if it weren’t for employees.
You can’t seem to hire the right people. Sometimes it seems like it would be easier to do the work yourself than manage your employees. You are acutely aware of the cost of a bad hire. Yet you know you need people in order to expand and make your business profitable.
There never seems to be enough money.
You lay awake at night worried about cash flow and making payroll. Maybe some months you don’t get paid because everything else comes first. No matter how much is coming in, it’s never enough.
All of this leads to confusion and frustration and the question: “what am I doing wrong?”
Here’s why you’re in this situation
In our years of business coaching and training people just like you the problem always boils down to 4 key areas:
1. Lack of business education/training
You are awesome at what you DO. You have great customer service and an excellent product/service.
You’re not as good at business – because you never got that education or training. You’ve managed to get this far without it…and now you’re faced with issues you’re not prepared to handle.
2. Lack of business systems
This leads to problems and inefficiencies. Your customer service is inconsistent and you spend a lot of time putting out fires. When you first started customer service is what made you great. Now you are constantly reinventing the wheel which is very inefficient. Time is money.
3. Inexperience leading a team
You started off as a one or two person operation and now you have employees to manage.
Your team is growing and you need to make the adjustment from being the person who does the work into the person who leads the people who do the work.
You have spent so much time and effort to learn about the service or product your business provides. Now is the time to develop your leadership, delegation, recruiting and training skills. After all you don’t get the team you want, you get the team you deserve. If you want a better team, now is the time to grow YOUR skills so that you can get and keep better people to make your business flourish.
It’s time for you to step into your role as a business OWNER
Instead of being the person who works IN the business, you now have to step into your role as the leader of your team and spend your time working ON the business.
You can have a business that supports your life (instead of the other way around)
With some targeted education and training – along with perspective and insight from a trained and experienced business coach and mentor, you can achieve the same results my clients report:
Increased sales and revenue
Spending less time in the business
Increased clarity and confidence in your ability to grow the business
Employees that are trained and follow proven systems
Less crisis management
4. Partnership Issues Busines relationships are tricky. You may be finding yourself with different visions for the business, different working styles and personalities and all this can lead to stress on the partnership. Frustration, poor communication and stress can result in issues that will impact the results of your business.
