Am I managing my business, or is my business managing me?
Time is our most valuable asset. We don’t know how much of it we will be given. Is running your business impeding on family time, your friendships, your hobbies. A good work ethic is admirable, but there is a point where you have to ask yourself if the sacrifices are worth it. Keeping a balanced life is healthy and can even improve your business operations by giving you time for perspective on improvements.
Have I done all I can to maximize revenue?
Forest meet trees. Sometimes we’re too close to the situation to know if we’re overlooking anything that would help improve operations, sales, and revenue. The value of third-party eyes should never be overlooked. Markets change rapidly. Is your business offering the goods and services that the market wants? Is your team working together to streamline operations? Are they given the opportunity to suggest improvements? Addressing these issues can dramatically change your bottom line.
Is it time for a change?
Have you accomplished all you can through your business? Is it time to sell and pursue other interests. Change can be refreshing. Selling for optimal value is your reward as you head into the life’s next chapter.
