Ready to change the world?

You embarked on this adventure of running a company with an idea that would change the world with all the enthusiasm.

Somewhere in the process that spark and adventure got lost amongst the responsiblity and uncertainty.

At some point it all became frustrating and overwhelming.

Your biggest challenge is running the business and delivering on your promise.

Why it’s easy to lose control:

Lack of standardisation

Systems and processes are created on the fly, requiring valuable brain power and time, increasing the steps necessary to complete tasks.

Leaders do everything themselves

There is a lack of delegation, which cripples time and stifles co-operation.

Not everyone is on the same page

Others bring personal agendas and conflicting working practices to the table. It is easy to get distracted managing internal politics.

There are too few hours in the day

You wake early, go to bed late, spend time managing your calendar, at meetings and building key relationships. There’s no time for anything else, yet deep down you know that you are operating at only a fraction of your potential.

Simple, But Not Easy

Getting from where you are to where you want to be sounds simple, however in practice the majority of businesses fail. Having the right support is key to staying on track.
Step out of uncertainty into more disciplined mode of operation.

What you really want:

Reconnect with the reasons you started doing what you are doing in the first place – that sense of passion and enthusiasm you had before you got overwhelmed.

Let go of stress and pressure – create a culture of high performance fused with a sense of ease and grace in what you do, enabling you to have more fun in the process. Serious. Sucks.

Develop effective habits and working practices – apply your time to only effective tasks and attract high performers to your organisation.
Work on income producing activity, rather than chasing your tail – get clear on what actions will move your business forward to fastest apply yourself diligently to those actions, pound notes and clients is a great focus.

I hired Dave because I was at a crossroads in my business. I have a website, various social media profiles and many other technology tools I use to manage my work and life. It was all becoming uninspiring and a little tiring to manage. I realised I wanted to spend more time serving clients (the part that I love), but all the admin, emails, invoicing etc. were getting in the way.
