Well, believe it or not, we are officially halfway through the year!
That means you should be at least halfway to hitting your annual business goals.
So how are you going?
If you’re crushing it, congratulations.
If you’re feeling frustrated about your progress, I’m going to help you now.
I coach entrepreneurs from all over the world, and I can tell you that the ones that are doing poorly usually have these 3 characteristics:
1. They are not giving their business 100%.
I’m not just talking about working long hours, almost every entrepreneur does that. I’m talking about fully committing to your business.
Truly obsessing about improving every element of your company.
In my view, unless you are totally and utterly committed to making your business great, then usually the financial results will be pretty ordinary.
2. They don’t have an organized marketing system.
Unless your company is literally famous in its area, you need to have a marketing system to consistently bring in customers.
Most companies practice ‘Hope Marketing’… they just open their doors each day and hope potential clients will contact them.
You will get some growth purely based on your reputation or your online search ranking, but stellar profits only come from methodically running a system to generate prospects and convert them into paying customers.
3. They don’t use their time well.
We all have 168 hours every week. The reason one person is a billionaire and another is struggling usually comes down to how they are using their time.
It truly amazes me that most business owners will go through a 40-year career without bothering to learn systems for being super productive.
Many just come to work each day and look around for things to do.
You must, must, must prioritize your time and focus intently on the tiny amount of activities that will gain and keep customers.
We are halfway through the year. If you want 2022 to end well financially, please spend some time thinking about these 3 areas – and score yourself on each one of them.
Then make some changes fast.
The first half of this year was over in a flash. The second half will be gone just as quickly.
