It can’t work for me; I don’t have time; sounds “pretty stupid” , how do I know it will work….. Amazing what kind of excuses people come up with. Yes, my business has to grow or I will have to close, but maybe there is something else that I can think of to grow my business faster.
These excuses tell me that there are two things at work in your mind;
- A fear of failure: why spend my time doing something that may or may not work.
- A lazy gene that is found in many small business owners. Some call it procrastination, I call it lack of discipline towards completing a work project.
For today, go back and review your answers to the four, foundation building questions, from yesterday. Make sure that you answered from both mind and heart; make any necessary changes. Most of you will make a few changes now that when you go back and re-read your questions and answers.
Today’s assignment may take several evenings to complete, but it is critical to our foundation.
- Spend whatever time is necessary to complete a comprehensive “family budget” for the next twelve months. Include your spouse and children ( that live at home) in the budget process.
- This will determine what the business has to provide in order for your family to enjoy a “financial, stress free” life.
If you already have a full twelve month written budget that was prepared by you and your family, you are among only 2% of clients, that I have met who have accomplished this feat.
Remember, every step in this journey has to be completed in order to achieved increased profits.
