Unfortunately, for most small business owners, freedom and flexibility is not the reality. And the odds are stacked against us.
According to new research from The Alternative Board (TAB):
- 62% of small business owners said the stress of ownership is worse than they imagined.
- 89% of small business owners said they regularly check email after work hours.
- 70% (for various reasons) prefer to do everything themselves.
Too many entrepreneurs burn the candles at both ends, yet only move sideways and not forward.
Are you spending every single day (not to mention your nights and weekends) working on a neverending to-do list, putting out fires and trying to do everything yourself?
But why shouldn’t you have a business that can continue to grow while still giving you the freedom you desire?
Imagine a business where you could…
→ Continue to grow and scale your business, while removing yourself from the day-to-day operations.
→ Have a team you can trust to move the business forward, even while you’re taking time off.
→ Spend your time working on ONLY the things that light you up, and delegate everything else to people who can do it even better.
Unfortunately, that’s not your current reality, and things aren’t magically going to get better.
YOU are the bottleneck that’s stagnating your business’ growth and keeping you trapped in the day to day grind. And unless you make a change, things are only going to get worse.
One of my favorite questions to ask our Clockwork students is:
“What would happen if we 10X’ed your business tomorrow…what would break?”
Your customer support?
Invoicing and billing customers?
Delivering your actual product or service?
Want to know the #1 answer entrepreneurs give?
“ME! I will break if we keep growing!”
We can help you if you’re:
- Maxed out and have no more time or energy to pour into the business.
- Spending most of your day putting out fires, fixing mistakes, and doing work IN the business instead of being the visionary.
- Feeling overwhelmed at the thought of scaling your business because balls are already getting dropped, mistakes are costing you time and money and you don’t even have a free moment to breathe during the day.
- Frustrated you haven’t enjoyed a vacation or holiday in years because when you try to completely unplug things fall apart
- Unable to grow and feeling stagnant because everything is still dependent on you.
- Desperate for more freedom and flexibility in your life, but you’re currently feeling a bit trapped by the business you created.
- Determined to scale the business, but are unsure what the next steps are to do that, without breaking yourself in the process.
Like Gabriela who has doubled her team without bloating her budget
“Our profits for the first half of 2020 are almost double that for all of 2019.On a personal level, I have reduced the length of my average workday by over one hour, allowing me to spend more time with my family.”
Like Shay, who has reduced her work day by almost half!
“This program exceeded my expectations. I have stopped working 9-13 hour days, I now work approximately 6 hours a day but I’m working on more fulfilling tasks that are moving the business forward.”
Like Maleeka, who was able to hire her team of A-Players!
“Just being able to hire and not be frantic about the means is amazing”
Like Avram, who no longer wakes up at night in a cold sweat!
“Now I work 15-20 hours a week, have a small lean team of 5 and we’ll double revenue this year over last.”
