Are You “Stuck” in Your Business?
Most business owners have the dream of building a profitable business that can survive without them. Unfortunately, lots of business owners end up in the “owners trap!”- working too many hours with too much of the business operation depending on their direct input.
You might be one of the countless business owners looking to create freedom but are chained to the day-to-day activities of their businesses. How did you end up here? Why are you stuck? Most importantly, how to do you break free from the day-to-day?
One of the first things you need to do is develop your business systems. This is a quadrant II activity. As Steve Covey puts it, “It’s not urgent but it’s extremely important!” This is why many business owners never get to it and hence the term the “owners trap”.
Getting organized, documenting and sharing with your team your way of doing things is the first step. All top performing businesses have standard operating procedures (SOP’s) in place for all their key processes. Everything from how you hire employees to the way you stock product or clean your facilities with nothing left to chance. Having established systems and processes helps reduce the reliance on you, the business owner. This is one of the 8 key drivers of creating businesses value.
