“I want to make more money and serve more clients, but there’s just too much to do.”
You’re a passionate business owner with an established business struggling to make more money due to your state of complete overwhelm.
Who you are
You’re doing it all yourself in your business and are completely overwhelmed by the sheer volume of tasks vying for your attention. At this point you have an established business, but you’re struggling to make time for money generating activities and can’t manage to make as much money as you would like because there’s just too much to do in too little time. You mind is maxed out from juggling all of the marketing, administrative tasks and serving your clients in your business. You have few systems to speak of, if any, and those you do have are held up with toothpicks and Band-Aids. What systems you do have are barely documented, incomplete and all relying on your “remembering” to do them and “fitting” them into your harrowing schedule. You may even be beginning to doubt if there’s a way to succeed in your life’s work at all.
What your issues tend to be
Due to your complete state of overwhelm things understandably fall through the cracks frequently: marketing, following up with new leads, missing deadlines and so much more. You are continuously trying to squeeze more into your mental space and your over-booked calendar. The continual process of juggling so many balls and dropping them leaves you feeling discouraged and impacts your confidence as a business owner and a person. When you look around at other business owners you wish you could get it together like them so that you could reach the next level in your business. If you’re being completely honest with yourself, you’ve considered giving up and wondered if you should just throw in the towel. You are not alone and it’s not your fault.
What you need most right now
Your primary focus needs to be on ordering and systematizing your business. While you don’t yet feel like you are a position to delegate to others or hire support its time for you to create the time and mental space for yourself to grow your business. Streamline your business activities and be strategic with your daily decision making in order to create more hours in your day. Then use your “newly created” time strategically by leveraging systems and processes so that it feels as if you’ve hire an assistant because you’re accomplishing so much. You will be freed from overwhelm and be ready to confidentially grow your income and serve more clients.
