As we kick off the 4th quarter of 2014, let me ask you this question: Are you experiencing double digit growth? No? Why not?
We are live in the greatest country in the world, a nation with very few limits except for those we actually place on ourselves. And those limits usually mean we have impotent goals and we have a less than stellar understanding of the kind and amount of activity it takes to really grow our business.
Since 2008, business owners have cut…significantly. As a result, they have been asking their people to do so much more with a whole lot less. Now that they’ve reached the lowest level they can go, they’re so wrapped up working in their business that they’ve lost sight of why they’re in business in the first place. You’re not in business to monitor your employees’ productivity! But that’s what’s happening. Your workflow and systems are so 2008 that you can’t get ahead let alone grow.
In the midst of all this, you’ve become obscure or even forgotten by those potential clients in your market place and, worse yet, to many of your customers. You’re not leading the charge. You’re people are following your lead. If you think dealing with the minutia such as paperwork and other “busy work” is okay (as proven by your example), then your employees are going to do the same.
I have some specific recommendations for the cure to this. If you’d like to learn more, simply send me an email and request my FREE report: The 3 Reasons Your Business Isn’t Growing…and what you can do about it!

Remember…Go Big or Go Home!
