How to Grow Your Business Without Actually Being There
“ Do you work for your business or does your business work for you?” A question entrepreneurs are being asked. If your answer is your business should work for you then it is important for you to let go.
As a business owner, one of your goals is the continuous growth and stability of your business. But how can you achieve this if you’re still deeply involved in every little daily tasks? It may be challenging since you built it from scratch and you’re used to handling its daily operations. Here are some steps you can take to help you ensure your business is running smoothly even if you’re not actually there.
Set plans and goals but learn to adapt
Have a clear set of goals to set the direction that you would like your business to take. It may be general, long term goals of small, short term ones, but what’s important is you have it written down. Create an outline of action plans and strategies that you need to take to achieve these goals. However, you also need to learn to veer away from your set plans and adjust to changes or any issues you may encounter along the way.
Make sure you are replaceable, delegate and avoid micromanaging and learn to listen to your team
Train your team members to be able to work on the daily tasks even without you micromanaging them. Have someone who can be your backup to make simple management decisions. Learn to trust them, you hired them because you know their capacity and skills and you know that they are what you need to run the business. Listen to their inputs and value their opinions.
Learn and use technology and always reinvent
Tried and tested ways of managing a business is always a good way to start, but you always have to learn to add new methods to help you improve. With all the technology and innovations available, it is a lot easier to run your business even if you’re not physically there. Research and apply systems and tools that you think would help you monitor and communicate with your team without the need to meet them in person.
