What separates you from being able to create a company that provides you with great income and lifestyle versus one that you are chained to the doors is a matter of focus.
So what are the things do you focus on? Do you focus on just day-to-day activities, or the big picture?
Successful entrepreneurs focus on the big picture.
You don’t have to be a slave to your business to succeed.
Few questions you can ponder on:
How will your business going to look like in one year, five years or ten years from now?
What is your vision for your business and your life? Write it down and always have that in the back of your mind. So, what ever you do, it is to achieve your vision.
Have a plan to achieve your dreams and vision for your business. This could be ideally your annual plan, quarterly, monthly, weekly and daily plan. This way you know the items you need to accomplish in order to achieve your vision.
What are the ways that you can REMOVE you from the business?
You have to be constantly looking for ways to remove you from the business. Successful entrepreneurs create businesses run without them being physically involved. Let go of the petty thinking that you have to do everything. Look for ways to remove you, use out sourcing and automation.
As a home business owner you can get help from your family and friends with your household activities. Friends and family love to help you, just that you are in the mindset that you should not trouble them. Just be realistic and do not be ashamed to ask for help.
Make a decision to concentrate on income generating activities and out source the others. If you are looking to outsource but don’t know how the best places to look are sites like elance, odesk and fivver. You will be able to see what other home business owners are out sourcing and what kinds of contractors are available.
Before you go on to hire it is a good idea to get some tips on Outsourcing.
The other best way to remove you from the business is to automate your business as much as possible. Leverage the technology and get the world-wide- web working for you non stop. Set up systems to communicate with your clients and prospects and to sell your products and services while you sleep.
For example have a web site set up that is open for business any time of the day, set up your social media updates to post automatically using services like Hootsuite.
Only thing is with the social media you need to be conscious of your engagement with your friends and fans. Say for example you can post a quote using an automated service and just leave it. If you are going to ask a question, then you need to hang around to give your response to the people who are replying to your question.
Finally, the most important thing is to make sure you have a big vision for your business and always work towards achieving it.
