Why did you start a business?
- Freedom to set your own hours, be your own boss and enjoy your life more.
- Felt trapped by the corporate mentality of big business.
Whatever it was, if you’re perfectly honest, it’s probably not working out as well as you had imagined. In fact, studies show that most businesses go out of business in the first five years and that 86% of them fail to achieve the goals of the owners. Even after 10 years or more! That’s because being good at what you do, has very little to do with being successful at owning your own business.
I consult for the trades, service trades. Being good at what you do is not good enough to be successful in business. If you look closely at most business frustrations you can find the lack of repeatable procedures at the heart of all business problems. Michael E Gerber coined the saying ‘Work on your business not in it’ by that, he meant work on creating systems to operate and run your business and you’ll do more to achieve success than by working harder in your business.
