As a business owner or manager you have three key areas that must be mentored, monitored and managed to grow your business to it's full potential with a return on your time & investment.
1. Mentoring your labor - you don't pick the best labor from a vine, you have to create your team through proper procedures that you teach them to apply along with encouragement to expand their skills and taking time to appreciate their efforts that will give them a home they love to return to daily which benefits them, your business and your clients
2. Monitoring your marketing - you must know where every opportunity is coming from and what you did with it to validate the money and time you are spending on each and every marketing program you are investing in. Bad marketing is a like a bad stock it's costing you money.
3. Managing your business by the numbers - requires you to put forms and procedures in place to know where your cash flow stands at any point in time, who is producing or who is not, which clients are reaching out to you and which clients are not allowing you to know what your business is doing daily in lieu of waiting for the end of the month or quarter to know what your business did when it is too late to stop or change a loosing trend.
Once you are in charge of your business, you can now work on taking control of your market!
