Per hour. I worked for $8.36 an hour as the owner of a small business. You know you have zero time, money and will to continue at that point.
It didn’t start like that and thank God it didn’t stay like that!
Is there a way to increase revenue AND free up time while growing your business?
Unfortunately it’s not a One-Size-Fits-All!
I have been there. Time poor. No vision for my business. Staffing problems.
Oh I had done a good job! Gotten my business off the ground, had built a great clientele in an abundant niche, was skilled at my work!
But as I sat in my office, calculating that per hour I was making less than my apprentice and I had missed so much time with my kids I called it what it was.
Making money but no time to spend or even knowing where to reinvest.
How could I? I was putting out fires, generating work for my employees, training apprentices. I had hit a time ceiling! And so a profit ceiling!
I decided then and there something had to change and I knew what it was. ME.
I got myself a coach. To work through what needed to be done. Help with specific direction. And most importantly, he helped create my own future
It was in me the whole time!
I created the business that I wanted. That excited me and grew in the direction I wanted!
I had free time, I increased revenue, staffing issues were easily solvable!
Problems always come up but I now had the tools to not just deal with it but turn them too my advantage!
After 15 years in business and weathering all different financial climates I have put together programs and processes to make any business work how it should and grow!
I put together my Success Loop.
⁃ Review. and Repeat
I started my business wanting to fulfil peoples needed and now I do the same!
We are all in different places. Different budgets, time commitments, family and work commitments and I work to aid that with coaching packages design to be flexible for you but with structure to ensure you have the tools to grow!
You see I believe that business is not a finite game. There is no winner and no loser. Only players. The goals is to be an Infinite Player. Not playing to win but play to play and be the best at what you do for your time on the field!
Since starting coaching small business owners, the same thing keeps coming up. Not as drastic, usually, bug the time vs money problems.
Contact me for a free strategy session. Together we can fee time and create a greater lifestyle.
Better yet let’s work together for 3,6 or 12 months and create a really incredible transformation for you, your family and your business!
Send “HELP” to;
Fixed point. Set value. Measurable. Constant. Attainable. Outrageous.
I have been helping people reach goals for most of my adult life. I genuinely love seeing people reach that milestone or target. I feel I’ve contributed to part of their life.
Why do my goals feel like millstones instead of milestones. Hanging around my neck. Have they been wrong goals? Wrong directions?
Years ago I was introduced to the Vision. The mission statement. I guess I am too pragmatic to not see writing a vision as another goal that is hanging over me haha. Oh dear.
But why dammit. WHY???
I couldn’t see it.
I couldn’t see my self thin. I couldn’t see myself different to how I had been for 30 years.
Oh don’t worry. I am happy, willing and able to see you succeed and help you with that but how problematic is it when the mechanics car doesn’t work.
I had to start. You know I just picked a direction and ran full tilt. I lost weight. I started studying again. Like my freaked life depended on it. Because it flipping did!
It’s a hard road when you are running with a blind fold on but with a guide you can. Then the blindfold comes off and the vision becomes clear. Goals fall into place and they are hit!
No vision? Get help. Someone who is a little further along and might be able to see what you can’t. Not someone to push you in the direction they think you should go but who can guide to where they can let you run free.
3 KEY AREAS For growth in your Business/ Start-up.
Success is measurable but do you know how to measure it?
-Is it getting the bills paid?
-Is it getting a bonus at tax time?
-Is it employing people to take on tasks you’re not passionate about?
-Is it a big holiday every year?
Jim Rohn put it in a way I like;
“success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines practiced every day. Failure is a few errors in judgment repeated every day”
Success is not a destination but a continuous progress forward. There are always setbacks but if you learn from failure, to me that is forward motion!
An opening blog post. This is important right? A big deal? Well I don’t know about that but I do know this is territory I haven’t been in before that, for me, is exciting!
This year I have been challenging myself to do all the things I said I’d never do because either; 1) I didn’t have the confidence to or 2) I didn’t think I could! So much was also brocade I want everything I do to be perfect so I can only been seen a a favourable choice.
Maybe it’s just how I am. Maybe it’s because I’ve been fat all my life and would prefer to fly under the radar so I don’t standout! I used to be happy to standout. Playing bands. Being the loud comedian. Generally making a fool of myself. What happened?
This year as I can to the big milestone in loosing weight I remember telling myself I’d never be 75 kgs. (I was 110 the year before). 75 kgs marks the top end of the healthy BMI range for me. Pfft that BMI thing sucks. Doesn’t take into account all my muscles. At least that’s what i told my self. When I hit 73kgs, having lost a full 1/3 of my body weight I realised I had been feeding myself BS for far too long.
So. Here I am wrong my first blog post on my first self built website ( you can tell right?) Because i wanted to and had told myself i couldn’t. Plenty of failures preceded this few minutes. But I learnt from each one. This year I am putting myself beyond what I thought I can do. I am going to fail over and over. But I am going to do it.
Thanks for reading this far through my confession. You are the real MVP!
