Have you reached a glass ceiling?
I’m not talking about the organizational bias glass ceiling – the one we most often hear about. I’m talking about the one we impose on ourselves. We get to a point in the growth our business and can see success beyond it but can’t seem to get there from here. If this is happening to you, you might be spending too much time working IN your business instead of ON your business.
One thing’s for certain – you can’t grow if you don’t let go. So, here are four quick ways to get started.
Make sure you are properly delegating to your staff. If you don’t have the confidence to do this, take a look at your hiring practices. A successful business is never a one man (or woman) show.
Manage your time as if it’s your most valuable resource – because it is. Make the most of it by avoiding email ping pong and social media traps. Define something difficult that you want to accomplish each day and do that first.
Seek out an expert. Fortunately, the basic principles are the same for every business: marketing, management, finance, and HR. An expert doesn’t necessarily need to have experience in your industry. They simply need to provide the right information at the right time to help you bust through your glass ceiling. Let people in your network know what type of advice you are looking for and you will be amazed at how quickly it will come.
And lastly, if you are struggling specifically with how to meet new customers or ways to create more time in your schedule, just phone a friend. Me. 770-634-2531.
