How To Ditch The Chaos of Your Business & Change Your Life

Jul 07, 2022

You’re here because you’re a small business owner. You love working with your clients and customers, but you feel that your business is taking over your life. You know what you want to achieve, but it seems to be getting further away every day. You want a business that works without you there 24/7, but most of all, you want a life where you have quality time for yourself and your loved ones. In this article, I'm going to remind you that you can have a business that works without you so you can lead the life you’ve always wanted.

You Have To Know Where You Want To Take Your Business

Before you can scale your business and make more money, you have to know where you want to take it. After all, you can’t really plan a trip if you don’t know where you’re going.

Ask yourself these questions that will help guide your way:

What is my why?

What is my goal?

What is my vision? 

How do I see myself growing this business over time? 

How much money do I want to make with this business by the end of next year? 

What about in five years' time? 

Ten years? 

The answer should come from deep within your soul; something that feels right when spoken, written, or even just thought about —not something someone else told us was important! I can’t say this enough... This has to come from YOU.

Simplify Your Current Routine

Now that you’ve identified the direction that you want your business to take, it’s time to simplify some processes.

Start by making a list of everything you do on a daily basis. Then, take a look at your list and figure out what can be delegated to someone else or outsourced altogether. You may find that there are some things on this list that aren’t necessary for running your business at all—and those should be eliminated from the equation entirely!

Next, prioritize each task according to its importance level as well as how much time it takes up in your day so that you know where to focus first. Then, concentrate on automating as many of these processes as possible and set up systems around them. By building these systems, you can keep your focus on what matters most rather than getting caught up in unnecessary details. 

Keep In Mind: Create A System That Works For YOU!

Now, I know that you probably have tried using systems that worked for other people. It's a tried and tested method that keeps them on track and productive. 

But what about YOU? What if your style isn't compatible with their methods?

You may struggle to make it work for you because it doesn't fit your lifestyle or personality. And that's fine! The key here is finding something that really works for YOU.

Start Where You Are And Build Your Way Up. Get A Clear Action Plan And Implement It.

Now that you have a clear vision of where you want to go and you have designed some systems, it's time to start taking action. One of the challenges we face as small business owners is seeing our own vision and then translating that into a plan that will help us get there. Here are some simple steps to get yourself on track:

 

  • Create an actionable plan for how you're going to achieve this goal by breaking it down into smaller goals and milestones along the way (e.g., "I want my business to make $100k this year," then break that down into more specific steps such as "Invest more in marketing").
  • Make sure each step is achievable so that if/when things don't go according to plan, you can easily adjust accordingly without feeling overwhelmed.
  • Ask for help if needed! Surround yourself with people who can give advice on how to solve problems like yours or, better yet, invest in a coaching program that really clicks with you. 

 

Start by taking care of yourself. By the end of this process, you’ll know what that means for your life and your business.
