Secret to Avoid Wearing Too Many Hats and Not Having Enough Time

- Rachel Spratling

Welcome to our latest blog in our mini series dedicated to those “early stage” entrepreneurs that are intent on creating a profitable and sustainable business. In this second blog we focus on the many practical steps entrepreneurs should take in order to ensure that they avoid the many costly and time consuming mistakes that many succumb to.

Growth experts

As an ambitious entrepreneur, you already know that in order to be successful you need to develop a sales & marketing machine that delivers a consistent stream of profitable customers.

Despite this, much of the evidence points to the fact that the majority of business owners don’t relish the sales process. Many have a fear of sales, held back by their perception about what it entails and how they might be perceived by potential customers if they sell to them

By working with an experienced team of growth experts who have launched, grown and scaled multiple businesses of their own and helped 1000’s of clients do exactly the same you’ll discover the practical steps that you need to take to overcome the aforementioned limiting beliefs and ensure that you’re successful too.

Rather than selling you’ll learn how to position your product or service effectively so that you’re simply helping target-market customers to buy from you

You’ll learn about the vital drivers of growth in any business and more specifically how to generate a steady stream of target market leads by learning to prospect consistently. More importantly, you’ll learn how to convert more and more of them in an efficient and timely manner. 

With the help of our experts, you’ll learn how to develop and implement the right marketing strategies for your business and how to ensure that you build loyalty and repeat business from your customer base as a means of building a sustainable competitive advantage over your competition.

Systemise your business

Having helped multiple business owners in the early stages of their entrepreneurial journey navigate the all too common challenge of wearing too many hats, and not enough time our team of growth experts are well placed to help you avoid the common pitfalls that so many entrepreneurs succumb to.

Our team understand only too well the sense of overwhelm and frustration that comes with having to be responsible for all of the key functions (sales, marketing, finance, operations, IT etc….) in your business, resulting in you having to work excessive hours and struggling to find the time to work on your business or indeed spend any quality time with family or friends.

This is without question a common challenge that the majority of entrepreneurs come up against in the  SWIM  phase of their entrepreneurial journey. Reassuringly it’s something our team of experts have helped countless business owners successfully navigate so as to ensure that their growth plans are not inhibited.

Working with one of our award-winning business coaches you’ll learn how to systemize your business from the outset. You’ll build a business that is able to operate at the required levels consistently having created the appropriate levels of process and procedural excellence.

Having invested your time in working through these common challenges you can expect to see increases in both revenues and margins and critically a business that continues to grow year after year.

If you’re just at the start of your entrepreneurial journey or have been struggling to really establish your business for a while now, it may be a case that your primary focus is simply on creating and or maintaining a business that works by generating you a suitable income. 

Experience of starting our own businesses and working with many others has taught us that every business goes through similar start-up challenges. No matter where you are right now, your success will be directly related to the action that you take right now. 

Sadly nearly 80% of businesses fail within their first 5 years of trading. Moreover its a widely held belief that the single biggest reason for business failures is a genuine lack of knowledge amongst business owners themselves. 

  • Are you currently wearing every hat in the business, working excessive hours and therefore finding little or no time to work on the business or spend time with your family? 
  • Did you perhaps fail to write a clear plan for how the business would grow or are you simply struggling to implement it?
  • Do you worry that your plan lacks the necessary detail? Would you benefit from having better systems that help you save time and achieve your revenue goals more efficiently? 
  • Are you finding you are still involved in every aspect of the business and therefore unable to even find the time to recruit and train the next team member that could dramatically change your business and life? 
  • Will you, without significant change, ever find the time to recruit the right person and onboard them properly so you truly leverage the investment? 
  • Do you need to develop a better sales process and more effective marketing strategies to help you realise your revenue goals?
  • Have you ever stopped to calculate your hourly rate and shift towards an investment mentality to realise your profit ambitions?

The big question is, by launching a business of your own, have you created a profitable and sustainable business, or have you simply bought yourself a job?
