Stalled or stuck in your business? Here's why

This episode is for anyone who is feeling stuck, a little stagnant in their business or is spinning their wheels. If you’re in the metaphorical hamster wheel and not making progress then this conversation is for you!

In today’s episode I help you uncover the five reasons you might be stuck in your business. We run through the reasons these challenges turn up and how addressing them can get you off the hamster wheel and fast tracked towards growth.

Importantly - not having clarity around these five challenges can also keep you stuck. I discuss how it can be hard working on things by yourself and how coaching can be a really helpful avenue that empowers you to take focused and aligned action forward.

I also help you understand how forward progress always begins with awareness and accountability. My Run Your Business Like A Boss Academy may be the perfect solution if you’re looking for a structured way to work on your business plan to set you up for success in 2023.

Topics We Covered:

[00:38] Is your business largely where it was six months ago? We are going to uncover the reasons that might be keeping you stuck.

[1:50] Feeling stuck is a hard place to be. You might be feeling stressed, overwhelmed and anxious - feelings that are not conducive to taking inspired action.

[2:14] In today’s episode I will help you uncover what might be the sticking points in your business. It all begins with awareness.

[2:53] The doors to the final round of the Run Your Business Like a Boss Academy are now open! In this academy we take focused action on your business model through Q3 and Q4 to set you up for your best year yet. You will gain clarity on your big vision, mission and values, your ideal client and gain skills in sticky marketing strategies. You will also uncover what makes your unique client - deeply powerful for business owners. Coming out of the Academy you will also have a clearly defined services suite that is not only shaped to your zone of genius but also customer centric. As well as that you’ll gain a clear outline of your ideal client journey, a fantastic service delivery plan and how to plan using my framework.

[5:51] A lack of space to create meaningful change is a conundrum for almost every business owner in the growth stage. I share how we often get caught up in urgent work, not important work.

[7:04] When you don’t have time to work on your business, nothing is going to look different. Where can you say no, so that you can say yes to this piece of work?

[7:44] A lack of clarity can also contribute to feeling stuck, and often piggybacks off point one above. You just keep doing the business as usual (BAU) tasks and struggle to think beyond the next day / week / month.

[8:35] Knowing the right questions to ask yourself is the power of coaching. My job, as a business coach, is to ask you the challenging questions and turn your attention to the inspiration as well.

[9:15] Clearly defined goals, that are not just focused on revenue, are instrumental. SMART goals are essential.

[10:11] The first step in a SMART goal is S for Specific, that is, well defined. When taking bold action, we need to understand what the goal's outcome is for our business.

[10:50] M stands for measurable. Do you have a framework in place to track your goals?

[11:07] A stands for attainable. Goals must be achievable - consider the time- frame and resources available to you.

[12:08] T is for time bound. We need to set containers around our goals, so that you don’t get lost along the way. This can involve breaking goals up into smaller goals.

[12:57] There are two additional two steps often unknown with SMART goals - SMARTER goals. E is for evaluation - it’s really important to track and reflect. R stands for revise - if you don't do this, you may end up with irrelevant goals.

[14:04] You need a strategy and plan. If  you don't have a roadmap, it’s very easy to get lost along the way. Quarterly planning processes really help with this.

[14:55] The fifth and final reason you may be stuck is accountability. Doing hard things on your own is hard! Support and accountability is so important. This is where coaching comes in.

[16:00] We revise the five things that keep you stuck in your business!
