Are you working all the hours possible but not seeing the benefits? Do you want your weekends and holidays back, and more quality time with your family without worrying about your business?
Maybe you started your company with the hope it would give you more freedom, but now you seem to be trapped under its burden. It happens to lots of business-owners. The organisation is built too closely around you, making you the star performer but also the bottleneck.
You may feel that your business is unique, and the only way to grow is for you to personally work harder. It’s not, in fact you may be the limiting factor in its growth. Every day you are losing out potential revenue and profits while your employees could be feeling insecure in their jobs.
It is understandable that you are now in a situation where you struggle to take time to stand back and find solutions, and of course there is no magic quick-fix.
The truth is that building a business that is independent of you will take time and effort. We need to start from a position of strength by setting up the organisation to be ready to support sustainable growth. Developing clear processes, reporting structure and responsibilities will drive competency improvements and will introduce consistency. An action plan will steer the organisation and ensure performance gains are driven forward.
Soon you will find you are spending much more productive time leveraging your key skills for the benefit of your business. By maintaining the momentum of action planning, your company will ultimately be able to operate independently of you, with the capacity to match business growth demands.
Let’s get started now. The first step is to discuss what and where you want your business to be, we can then develop an action plan to get you there. You can get your life back and build the successful business that you always wanted.
