Strategically Systematize Your Business

Organizations are perfectly designed for the results they achieve.  Want new results, get a new design.  - Paul Gustavson If you can't describe what you are doing as a process, you don't know what you're doing!  - W. Edward Deming A good system shortens the road to the goal.  - Orison Swett Marden I have been working recently with an outstanding group of nine business owners.  We've been working together for about a year and a half.  My aim as their Houston area business coach, is to help these men and women create turn-key businesses that run automatically while they own them, and worth a fortune when they sell them!  The key:  Systems! Systems is one of the most misunderstood areas of business today.  Yet effective systems are relatively easy to implement and will add enormous value to your business.  Systems are also the key to building a strong, effective team! You want your business to become increasingly more systems-dependent and less owner-dependent.  Ideally, you want your business to get to the point where it can basically run itself, and all you have to do is give it direction and monitor the dashboard! Our definition of a successful business is this:  an increasingly profitable enterprise that consistently delivers on its promise, and runs without you (the business owner). Could you walk away from your business for a 2-3 week vacation without having to take the computer and cell phone with you, and come back to find it operating smoothly and profitably?  Could you escape for even 1 week?  If not, you do not have an effective business system; you are the system! Your business should not depend upon your presence, personality, problem-solving, and perspiration for its daily survival.  If it does, your business does not work, you do!  If everything in your business flows through you and is dependent upon you, then you are dramatically restricting the growth and profits of your company. Ideally, you want to be able to sell your business one day!  To successfully do that, you have to prepare now.  Your business is your product! To learn more about how to strategically systematize your business, consider engaging a business coach.  If you live in Sugar Land, Katy TX, or the Houston area please contact me for a complimentary business coaching strategy session.
