All Owners OF Growing Businesses Have PAIN’s.
As I referenced in my last BLOG, for the past 27+ years I have worked for, with or coached business owners / leaders. I recognize that each and every business is different and unique. But, after we have our initial conversation, it is apparent that they have PAINs that they would like to have eliminated from their lives.
- The business owner / leader is working 60+ hours a week
- They will say things like…”my customers come to my business because of me and what I do”; or “if I wasn’t here, my customers would go somewhere else”
- the owner is having family relationship troubles with spouse and / or children.
- Health issues are surfacing with the owner – lack of sleep, anxiety, head aches, etc.
- Watching TV
- Surfing the internet
- Spending time with ‘negative people’
- Other peoples ‘drama’
- Saying ‘Yes’ to people when I really don’t want to do something
- STOP doing those things
- CHANGE the way they are done so you can get them done faster
- DELEGATE to someone that can get it done faster, or less expensive
