Anywho, back to my story.
I felt like I was in a rut. I didn’t feel as though I fell in the rut, I felt like I had built it around myself.
Perhaps the feeling of being “busy” had become my wall of safety and a way of telling myself that I was achieving.
So not true!
I was caught in a constant grind of doing mundane work tasks, managing my kids like they were my clients, managing my clients like they were my kids, and just chasing my tail every day.
This took a toll on every aspect of my life.
Marriage, kids, health, social life, clients– they all took a hit.
And I can tell you right now, the camping trips, day adventures, and car races became nothing but a distant memory of what the ‘old Stacey’ used to do.
Like she was a totally different person – one that no longer existed.
The ‘new Stacey’, belonged strapped to her desk, slogging away relentlessly working on her business.
*Now don’t get me wrong here, I think in any business, for anyone, there are seasons where ‘slogging it out’ is a necessary component to business growth, what I’ve learnt is that it shouldn’t be a permanent season*
So, feeling defeated, deflated and just plain shitty about this situation, I decided it was time for a change.
And that’s exactly what I’ve been doing over the past three years– finding the best solutions to streamline, refine, and make my business perform at a higher level.
I’ve learned the best systems for setting goals and identifying the tasks that are critical for me to smash those goals.
I’ve mastered forecasting, so instead of just managing my money, and robbing Peter to pay Paul each week, I’m now making money with intention.
By implementing better systems, I identified the parts of my business that needed a bit of love and eliminated the parts that were not actually creating any value.
Because that’s what we’re all aiming to do right? Eliminate tasks that take up too much of our time to make space for the tasks that we should be working on every day.
You know the tasks I’m talking about- the ones that actually drive your business forward and allow you to kick business butt consistently.
And now, I teach those systems to my clients, so they too can reap the rewards, and finally start getting a pay off for their hustle.
Every day, I see business owners who have so many awesome ideas and aspirations, but they struggle to implement them because they find it hard to break everything down into bite-size, actionable tasks.
Business owners who struggle with the number-crunching side of budgeting.
Business owners who don’t know the cost of their products and services, which is often where they can find areas to increase efficiency and profit.
Business owners who cringe at the thought of the paperwork shuffle, so they put it on the backburner, and never truly know how they’re travelling financially.
I want to help you guys because I think it’s time you start getting paid what you’re worth and your business starts working for you, instead of you being a slave to your business.
I’ve created my Free Small Business Strategy Calls as a result of talking to business owners like you!
Unfortunately, due to the personalised service that I like to offer all my clients, I can only offer a limited amount of these strategy calls every week– four, to be exact.
