3 Major Reasons Your Business is Dead in the Water

Small business is a hard road. Ensure you as the owner are not in the way.

Business struggling to make money? Struggling to retain staff? Here are 3 important things you MUST consider.


one
You have no Mission Statement or Values

These things are important. What do you stand for? Nothing? if you the Boss stands for nothing, then how on earth can you expect your team to stand for something?

Your business needs direction. It needs to make a statement that says

“This is who we are and this is what we stand for”

Otherwise you don’t really have a business – you have a job with a bunch of other floaters floating around aimlessly.

This isn’t rocket science. Give your team something to work for. Talk to them about the industry and create a vision together. Get it on paper – put it on the wall and get enthusiastic about it. If you don’t – then all you are doing is going to your job day in and day out.

That’s no fun.


two
You Don’t have a Systems Manual

A systems manual includes a Procedure Manual and a Policy Manual as a minimum. This document has everything in it.

Couldn’t be bothered writing one? Well, should you really be running a business then?

Get one of these documents implemented and see how dramatic the improvements are to your business, turnover and staff moral.

Your Team is not an integral part of implementing your vision, mission and quality control.

You the Boss think you are King Ping. You huff and puff your way around your business hiring and firing and expecting people to perform instantly.

Chances are your team has a high turnover rate. They don’t care about you because you don’t care about them. The first thing in a good performing business is the TEAM.

It is a TEAM effort. Forget the huffing and puffing and become one of the TEAM and watch your business explode.

Good business performance comes from doing things properly, documenting systems and treating your team and customers with the utmost respect.

Do this and you will have a much better chance of creating a sustainable business that gets repeat work and performs to the highest levels.
