The Owners Model - How To Pivot From "Entrepreneur" to "Owner"
Hey entrepreneur, are you sitting in the owner's chair? Or are you operating every piece of your business? If it is the latter, you are probably way overstressed, way undercapitalized, way confused about the direction of your business, and growing really slowly. You’ve discovered that the worst businesses in the world are seven figure businesses. Why would the author of 12 Months to $1 Million say a thing like that? Because: * You have to hire really good talent, but you don't have the money to hire really good talent. You have to have the cash flow to be able to reinvest into growth, but you don't have enough cash to grow the business. * You're just stuck paying yourself and then getting by on the rest of the revenue. * You're able to pay yourself and for your overhead and maybe some team members, but you’re caught in a trap where you're not really able to grow to that $10,000,000 point, or even higher. So, in today’s episode, we’re going to help you make the shift from entrepreneur to owner. After listening, you’ll be crystal-clear on the three things a business leader needs to focus on. With that clarity, you’ll see the path forward for making your current business - or your next - the freedom machine that fuels your life and lets you make an enormous difference for your customers. Let me know what you think. I think this message has the power to change everything for the entrepreneurs who really get it.
