This morning, I spent some time deep cleaning my house.
You know, getting to the nooks and crannies that don’t get cleaned as often.
It got me thinking about how in business the same type of thing happens.
We are focused on the daily to do, the weekly and monthly tasks that need to get done...or worse yet just reacting to the chaos (in the case of my house the 100 tiny toys the kids just dumped on the floor).
That we forget about those nooks and crannies.
The difference between our homes and our businesses is that nothing will really happen if you don’t clean the nook or cranny.
In a business not ensuring that every nook or cranny is properly tended to can lead to massive inefficiencies in your workflow and your business’s profitability.
So what ends up happening is you work more and more and more on the daily urgent stuff and next thing you know you have nothing sustainable.
This is when we see clients that have a team but still feel like they are doing #allthethings.
They are playing catch up coordinating tasks that need to be done every day.
They end up clogging up inefficiencies having to approve every.single.thing their team does leaving you with a longer to do list than if they just did it themselves.
Or perhaps, they just don’t trust their team because the work they have created so far has not been up to their standards.
The reality is these problems are what keep entrepreneurs stuck for months and even years from bringing in more sales and running a business that allows them to reduce their working hours.
If you are ready to hop off the day-to-day-struggle bus and build a business that is sustainable long term, I have a few openings for 1:1 coaching for the first time in over a year.
And in case you want some inspiration, here is a case study from a business owner that we helped to get off this unhelpful hamster wheel.
Go here to schedule your complimentary consultation and let’s make your business an efficient profit producing machine so you can step off the hamster wheel of the day to day operations in your business.
