Are you like most business owners out there who are struggling to find enough time to breathe? Do you have a list of tactics and strategies that would take your business to the next level if you only had the time to implement them?
How can you overcome the time challenges you currently face to create the business you have always envisaged?
Implementing the following strategies have proven to be beneficial for many of my clients:
Self management challenges and how to overcome them
Challenge: You don’t have enough time, you are spread too thin and/or you don’t delegate much.
Solution: Develop an Apprenticeship Plan: A plan to identify the low-value tasks that you don’t like doing anyway and train team members to do them for you so you can focus on the things that make you money.
Challenge: You are too detailed to teach others and no one can do it as well as you.
Solution: Develop an Operations and Training Manual: How-to: manual that describes in great detail everything that a person needs to know about how to do their job effectively and takes them through a focused training process.
Challenge: You are not doing the things you know you should.
Solution: Develop a Self Management Plan: Default calendar where you’ve got the most important things blocked into your calendar as an appointment with yourself that you always keep and then hold yourself accountable to do it.
Challenge: You want to get out of the business, restructure the business and/or merge or be acquired.
Solution: Comprehensive Exit Strategy: Plan to identify the current value of the business, quickly enhance the value, develop a marketing plan to identify either internal or external prospective buyers, and get the best price for the business.
