4 key indicators it's time to upgrade the systems in your business
Talking about business systems and processes might not sound fun or glamorous but they are the very things that will keep your business running successfully well into the future. You can have the most beautiful brand and amazing marketing but if your systems and processes aren’t able to support them, your business will suffer the consequences.
So how do you know if your systems and processes need to be reviewed?
In this episode, I discuss 4 possible indicators that it’s time to take a look under the hood. I share some questions to ask yourself to help you identify where your systems might be letting you down and why updating them will promote growth, free up time and allow more space for creativity.
Does the idea of hiring somebody cause you a lot of stress?
Do you feel like your service delivery doesn’t really reflect your brand?
Are you making mistakes and missing important things?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s likely that you need to re-look at your systems and processes. The great thing is, when you identify where the shortfalls are, you can fix them.
Think about the impact you could make if your systems weren’t letting you down.
What are the long term costs if you don’t do anything about it?
Topics We Covered:
[2:00]: Systems and processes are a big contributing factor for your business being a long term success.
How to know if your systems need work:
[3:00]: #1: You can’t build a team. You know you need help but the idea of someone coming into your business causes you stress.
[4:40]: You want systems in your business that are replicable to ensure nothing gets missed
[5:15]: #2: You’re self sabotaging. Deep down you know your service delivery doesn’t reflect your brand and you’re not confident that your clients are getting the best out of their investment.
[6:30]: If your systems are letting you down, it can result in poor confidence. You might stop yourself from attracting your dream client, resist increasing your prices or do anything to grow your business because your systems can’t support it.
[7:45]: Imagine if you had systems in place to support you. Would you self sabotage in the way you currently are?
[8:30]: #3: You make mistakes and miss important things. There’s a difference between productivity and being effective.
[10:50]: #4: You’re repeating the same tasks over and over again. It’s unsustainable to be stuck doing tasks that are outside your zone of genius
[12:00]: Your time and energy are your greatest resources. How much time are you spending on repeatable tasks each week?
