I just got off of a sales call. The prospect was someone I have worked with before. I like her a lot.
She confided that she’s STUCK in her business. Her income and growth have plateaued.
When I asked WHY, she couldn’t answer at first.
Then I probed deeper and the truth emerged:
She’s flying by the seat of her pants in her business.
She has no systems, structure or schedule in her business and VERY little team support.
Just last week something happened that really upset her: she totally FORGOT to go to her personal training class at the gym, a class she has religiously been going to for a while now. She loves this class.
It just slipped her mind.
She went on to tell me that on her calendar for Monday through Wednesday (this is the day she forgot about her gym appointment) of that week she had NOTHING represented on it. It looked as if she was on vacation.
That slip-up made her feel crappy. So she went on a scheduling frenzy and her calendar for the rest of the week was immediately filled with neatly organized chunks of time, projects and appointments.
“Flying by the seat of my pants” is something I hear about A LOT when I first start coaching my clients.
I quickly help them shift because that’s no way to build a thriving, profitable business. It’s just not.
I used to do it myself and it’s a one-way ticket to Burnoutville.
You need SYSTEMS and STRUCTURE and a SCHEDULE.
Want to see my weekly schedule?
The PINK shaded sections are when I’m working ON my business. The ORANGE is when I’m working IN my business. And the YELLOW is when I’m spending time on NON-business related experiences.
It’s taken me close to 6 years to get here! My schedule keeps getting better and better. I’ve created this consciously and with my values and mission always at the forefront.
The coolest part? We’re on track to have the BEST year yet in our business in 2013. Our income and profits have grown.
What I love the most about where we are in the business is that I’ve never had this much fun and enjoyed this much FREE time. It’s AWESOME.
You can do it, too.
There is NO reason to be a slave to your work.
Your life will never be the same once you get your shit together in your business.
I’m ready to help you become a TIME NINJA in your business and reclaim your life …
P.S. This is the LAST LIVE free training series I’m offering in 2013.
P.P.S. Stay tuned for my ezine this Sunday because I’m going to be sharing a FREE resource – your very own Weekly Schedule (like mine pictured above) you can download and fill in to become a time ninja in your biz and life.
