We talk a lot about taking your business to the next level. For you, does that mean the next level of income, the next level of business growth, the next level of freedom or a combination of all three?
Whatever your version of “the next level” is, the BEST way to get there is to let go of the smaller stuff.
Recently, Mark (my husband, a business owner, and a coach in some of my private sessions) and I have spent a great deal of time, energy and money trying to implement the best possible team. Why? Because we’ve learned the hard way that we can’t do it all ourselves. We spent years trying to do too much in several of our businesses, including our coaching business- and it has always slowed us WAY down.
Save yourself some agony.
What can you let go of in your business that will help free you up for “the big stuff?” Think of what you love to do, what you do well, and what you know you MUST do to move your business forward. Put YOUR focus there and delegate the rest.
If you can’t do it all now, that is okay. Do it in baby steps. Begin to shift your awareness and your actions to focus on the big stuff and let go of the items that others can do for you at minimal costs (such as running errands, paying bills, scheduling clients, doing paperwork, answering phones etc).
If you are already running a 6 or 7 figure business, the next step is to let go of some things that “you know you can do yourself well” because…again… you can’t “do it all” AND enjoy your business. And life is too short not to enjoy what you do every day.
The very acts of prioritizing, sharpening your focus, and delegating is what helps you get to your “next level” with ease. So, ask yourself, “What can you let go of now, to sharpen your focus on “the big stuff” and help you move forward?”
