Smart goal setting can help you take your business from zero to hero so quickly, you’ll be surprised at how much you can grow in a reduced time-frame. But setting your goals is winning only half of the battle.
In this 2 Minute Accountant episode, Andrew Jeffers highlights the importance of implementing solid systems that will help you achieve your goals – and shows you why successful athletes are using the same formula.
Winning at business is like winning an Olympic competition
The most successful athletes have something in common with you, a business owner. People like Shelley Taylor Smith, Kieren Perkins, Steven Bradbury or Dean Lukin broke records and achieved amazing things in their careers. Just like you’re building a business from scratch.
They had well-defined goals, and they implemented a solid process of achieving those goals.
Are you doing the same in your business?
Did you know…? Statistics say that over 70% of small businesses are struggling to make the minimum wage for themselves. Uh-oh…
Smart goal setting: Why are you in business?
What happens a lot of the time in business is we have a goal. More often than not that goal is to make some money. But we don’t quantify that.
Ask yourself, “Am I in business to give a job to my employees?”
