Running your business for a while but know there’s room for improvement?
In my experience when people have been running their business for a while some of the challenges they are facing are:
- That some things are working really well, but they know there are areas of the business that could benefit from attention, but that they don’t have the time or headspace to make improvements
- They are still not making the money they want to and are not sure how to reach those goals
- They’ve managed fairly well so far but have never really created a strategy for themselves, so they feel confused about what is a priority or not
Running your own business can be incredibly fulfilling, but it’s also a rollercoaster of constant challenges. We need to adapt and evolve our businesses over time, and it often feels like the work is never done!
It’s easy to let the business take over, and feel like instead of you running the business, the business is running you.
I can help. I’ve been where you are and over the last 14 years I’ve learned the lessons so that you don’t have to.
Let me help you navigate the
Top 5 challenges most people have when growing their businesses:
Allowing the business to impinge on family life
Is business taking over your life? Do you feel like you never get on top of all your tasks? Perhaps it is time to reconsider your boundaries. If you’re working all the hours and never being able to switch off, it may be that you’ve let these slip. If you want a life-friendly business it’s crucial that you decide what’s important to you and set your non-negotiables. Download the free 7 Steps To A Life-Friendly Business checklist to help you get these foundations in place. You'll learn:
- How your business is currently performing in the 7 Core Areas
- Why your business does or doesn’t feel life-friendly right now
- The changes you could make to experience a better balance between your business and your life.
Experiencing imposter syndrome which leads to inaction
Are you getting swayed by what everyone else is doing? Does imposter syndrome and not feeling good enough constantly stop you from getting yourself out there?
Running a life-friendly business is about doing things on YOUR terms, and it’s also about working to your own measures of success. Check out this podcast episode and consider what your own measures of success are.
Knowing when to get support
Are you struggling to take the next step up with your business? Perhaps you’re happy with what you’ve achieved so far, but you know you’re capable of more? It’s time to invest in some support and to stop doing the same thing over and over again and expect a different result.
Whether it's a mentor, an accountant or someone to assist in your business, I’ve recorded a podcast episode and listed useful questions for you to think about when deciding whether it's time to invest.
Your marketing isn't getting enough traction
Is your marketing hitting the mark? I know from the women I mentor that inconsistent marketing and lack of confidence in selling can often be a huge barrier to making the money they need. If you’re not getting the sales you need, it’s time to get expert guidance.
You don't have to sell in a way that doesn't feel good to you. Here are some tips to help selling feel less icky.
Not making the money you need to
If you’re not making the money you need to, have you checked whether your business model is actually viable? Both financially and in terms of the time you have to work on your business?
