Heather and I and the boys got home from Maui a day ago. We had a great time.
Yesterday I was talking to a business owner about how in her business if she wasn’t there the business would literally dissolve in less than a week. It could not function without her.
How about your business?
The Ultimate Stress Test for Your Business
I call it the “Hit by a Bus” Stress Test: and in order to build a Level Three business you MUST ultimately pass it…If you (or any key individual inside your company) were hit by a bus (or if you prefer a softer version of this test imagine you or any key person in your company choosing to live in a monastery with no phone or email for 5 years) would you still have a business? What would happen to your business?
For most business owners the answer is shocking – if they get hit by a bus their business folds. That means that there is NOTHING for their family…there is nothing for their employees…there is nothing for their customers…
Did I get your attention with that? Everything you’ve worked so hard for could literally disappear in a moment.
So what do you do about it? You build a business that is more than you.
You build a Level Three business.
This means you build a business that is systems driven, with a strong management team and a clear plan to leverage technology.
This is a step-by-step progression and one that I’ve shared lots about over the years.
For those of you who want help to take your business to Level Three please call my office and talk with Stephanie about our Level Three Business Consulting Program. I’m not sure if your business is a fit for the program or not (we only have room right now to work with a few dozen businesses at a time) but in 10-15 minutes you’ll both have a much better idea if it might be a fit.
You can reach Stephanie direct at toll-free 866-214-6619 (or email her at Stephanie@mauimastermind.com ).
In either case I hope you use today’s post as a wake-up call to do something about your business’s dependence on you.
A lot of people depend on you and your business.
