Have you ever tried to ride a bike with a flat tyre? 

It’s slow, unsteady and bloody hard work.  It doesn’t matter how much air is in the other tyres. It’ll make for a bumpy ride and you might end up damaging the bike to the point that you can’t ride it anymore. 

Imagine your business has 3 tyres. Most of the time businesses focus on tending to and pumping up 1 or maybe 2 of the tyres. 

But they don’t actually see the others which can in turn end up driving the business into the ground. 

According to the ABS, 60% of businesses will fail within the first 3 years. And that number rises to over 90% after 5 years. 

The main reason discovered is that business owners are not upskilling in other areas like sales, finance and marketing. And they’re not planning. 

You didn’t go into business to be an expert at sales or finance. You went into business because you’re passionate, are damn good at what you do and can do it like no one else. 

BUT to be successful, I’m sorry to tell you, you do need to be across these other areas of your business … all while not getting burntout! 

It’s frustrating though because you don’t know what you don’t know. There’s an inkling there must be a better way but you don’t know where to start. 

Wouldn’t it be great if you knew how to keep things pumping without worry, having to invest more time or having to do more work?

If you could feel like things are under control so you can go back to loving your business again. 

Unfortunately, the more common approach is for business owners to either go into full avoidance mode burying their heads in the sand or getting a false sense of security by looking only at the ‘vanity’ numbers in the business. 

They default to working longer hours, working more and staying in the same vicious cycle. 

There are 3 pieces to this puzzle (heads up – these cover the 3 ‘tyres’ in your business).

  1. Focusing on smart growth meaning you having a plan, are focusing on both sales and profit
  2. Getting time freedom back through working on your beliefs, setting strong boundaries and working with, instead of against, your natural internal drivers
  3. Having an autonomous team you trust, that is thriving in the current culture

Is it time to look under the hood of your business, or check the air pressure in your business tyres?

Be the mechanic your business needs you to be. Or at least be the driver!
