In This Podcast
- Automated revenue
- Use your opened space
- Slow down
You want to look at what are the main revenue sources within your business and then … make sure that as much of that is automated outside of your own time. (Joe Sanok)
As the boss of the business, you do not have to do all the small jobs. Your job is to grow and oversee the business, not to constantly fine-tune, fix and redo.
Evaluate and structure your business so that most of the cogs can turn without you having to fret about them to free up your time to work on growing the business. In general, the goal is to have the business run itself, allowing you to step in and out.
Use your opened space
Now that you have more time on your hands and more emotional space because you have automated some processes, ask yourself what the next big thing is for your business.
Some creative outlets for you and the business could be:
- Creating e-courses
- Starting a podcast
- Guest-starring on someone else’s podcast
One guiding principle I have is that the person I am this year is not going to be the person I am next year. I am forever changing and reshaping myself. (Joe Sanok)
Use your new free space to grow yourself and your business, and growth is not linear. Focus on putting one foot in front of the other, completing one task and ambition after the other, and watch your business evolve.
Slowing down is a part of being able to speed up. Remedying burnout is better to do before it even becomes evident.
You can structure your schedule with periods of slowing down so that you can consistently do good work while prioritizing rest.
Start where it is easy to grow and go from there. What are you good at? What do you enjoy? You can unfold these answers and put them together into a service that you enjoy making and that your audience needs.
