Why did you get into business for yourself? Most business owners who are asked this question usually answer that they started their business to have more money, time, and freedom to live the life they want. The reality is that most business owners struggle to get their business to this level because they don’t have the right resources and tools to build a successful business.
At ActionCOACH RGV, we know the proven strategies that can help you take control of your time, energy, and money to increase your business performance.
Take Control of Your Time
A big concern for a lot of small to medium business owners is that they don’t have time to focus on growing their business. Most work long hours up to six to seven days out of the week just to keep their respective businesses running. Can you relate?
The truth is, the problem isn’t that you don’t have enough time, it’s that you’re spending your time on the wrong things. Every person on Earth has the same amount of time in a day to work with. The difference between a person who builds a successful business and one who doesn’t, however, is that they know which tasks to direct their attention to on a daily basis.
If you want to grow your business, start by first understanding how you spend your time so that you can replace time-wasting tasks with more valuable ones. This is the first step toward mastering time management and productivity in your business.
Take Control of Your Energy
Frequent long days working in your business can deplete your energy, and if you’re constantly exhausted, you run the risk of developing chronic fatigue. Though we all know good health is important, some business owners don’t realize the importance of good health in business success.
It’s simple. If you’re operating at an optimal level, then you’ll have the energy to get your business to that level, too.
One of the first steps you can take to improve your energy is to assess the factors that affect your energy. For example, take a good look at how you’re sleeping, eating, and moving to see if you need to make any changes to live a healthier lifestyle. If you have any health conditions or concerns, make sure to see the right doctors for that, too.
Fatigue and burnout isn’t something that should be taken lightly. An exhausted business owner won’t be able to think like an energized, healthy entrepreneur, and the decisions you make while in this impaired state can negatively impact your entire company.
Take Control of Your Money
Even though it’s not ideal, your business will still stand if you lose time and energy, but there’s one thing your business cannot afford to lose–money. That’s why it’s important to know when your business isn’t making the money it should be.
One way you can easily make sure you’re consistently generating a profit is to record all of your transactions in real-time to generate a profit and loss statement. This statement should be completed at least once a month, as it will help you make accurate decisions about how to best run your business.
If you know how your business is performing every month, you can better forecast how you’ll do in the following months and better prepare to meet your profit goals.
