Growing a business is hard.
It’s made harder by the sheer volume of information and tactics that surround enterprises like yours.
Your team members are smart, hardworking, and innovative people. So they grab hold of the best tactics they come across, and with good intention, attempt to improve your business.
You support them, because you want your team to win, and because you want to achieve your business goals.
But most of all, you want to get to a point where you can take your foot off the pedal and transition to the lifestyle business of your dreams.
The kind of lifestyle where you work less and…
- take a day or two off every week
- live where you want and travel where you want
- finally have time to pursue the hobbies and things you love.
- spend precious time with the people that you cherish
But here’s the thing….
As your team runs from idea to idea, enthusiastically trying to implement tactic after tactic, your business and life goals don’t get closer….
….they get further and further away.
It’s like being lost in a forest as the night draws in. You run around trying to find your way out, but the harder you run, and the more you search, the more you get lost, and the deeper you get lost in the wilderness. As night takes hold, reality bites….the gap between where you are now and your dream destination (that cosy cabin with the Hot Tub) just keeps getting bigger and BIGger and BIGGER.
You and your team end up tired, confused and frustrated at all the tactics you’ve been chasing, that haven’t paid off.
Who can blame you for feeling that way?
After all, you’re not alone.
Many leaders, in fact, the majority leaders are lost in the business wilderness.
Wondering if I can back up that statement?
Here are a few charts that underline the point I’m making.
