3 Things to Stop Doing (Immediately) If You Are A Business Owner

1) Playing it safe – get out of your comfort zone and out of you’re own way. The saying is true that “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” You have to take risks in business. You can’t stand on the sidelines. You have to get in the game. You can’t keep doing the same thing and expecting different results. That just doesn’t work in business. Roll up your sleeves and dive deep. Your business will be all the better for it.

2) Failing to invest in yourself & your company. Continue to learn and grow. Continue to invest in new technology, resources and help. If you can’t hire full-time, hire part-time, hire independent contractors, hire virtual assistants. Don’t over stretch yourself to the point where you are no longer being an asset to your business. Know what you don’t know and hire out the rest. Take classes and online courses to continue to stay up to date in your field of expertise. There are always ways to improve your business knowledge. So continue to invest in yourself.

3) Stop operating without systems & processes for your business. Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), an employee handbook, standard contracts, a purchase agreement, terms and conditions, privacy policy, independent contractor agreement, non-disclosure agreements are all essential to your business. If you are an LLC you should have an Operating Agreement in place where you can set forth ownership, financial and working relationships for your company. Systems and processes help to stream line your business, onboard clients professionally, and improve its efficiency. Remember, consistency is key as you grow and scale your business.

Where are you playing it safe in your business? Where can you step out of your comfort zone? Where can you invest more in your business? What systems, processes and contracts do you need to put in place to run a more efficient and effective business?
