Before a company grows, it needs to shore up its business processes and systems. The goal is to have the business run smoothly on its own. This will free up your time and energy to focus on growth.

PRODUCTIVITY

Create an overall strategic plan for your business growth. This strategic planning goes hand in hand with Financial Planning for Growth. Don't risk overlooking any critical element of your company or growth plan.

When growing, you need to understand how each decision you make will affect your cash flow and future profits. Have Chuck help you plan financially for each strategic decision while you grow.

Chuck will work with you to optimize any weak area of your business. The goal is to create or modify existing systems so that they are as close to being free from errors as much as possible. Once created most systems do not cost any extra money to maintain. 

A business will grow only to the extent of leadership growth because personal and business growth are codependent. As a business leader, all your strengths and weaknesses are magnified. If you are willing to look deeply at yourself, you will have an unparalleled opportunity to grow personally.

The root cause of burn-out for business leaders is thinking they have more work do to than they can handle. Let Chuck teach you his version of the Getting Things Done methodology, modified for the Internet and mobile age. You will learn a system that will allow you to get more done while dramatically reducing your stress level.

I wrote down how we were going to open four to five new stores in 2011 . . . not one, not two, not three but four or five new stores! The rest of the meeting outlined how that would happen. We knew the first store would probably be in Los Angeles, as it was the next market north of Orange County...

Let’s pause for a moment and talk a bit about money. Financially speaking, a company can be grown in many ways. At the time, I was scared to take on debt, so the only way I knew to grow was to use the profits from the previous year. In my case, I paid myself the minimum I could get away with ($30K/year) to save the maximum amount for growth...

It is a common misconception to think that creativity only applies to art and not to business or entrepreneurship. Let it be known now and forever, though, that business is a creative process. We were creating the systems for a business model that had never existed before—at least not that we could find. No one could tell us how to do it—how to run this operation. We had to think outside the box because there was no box...

Businesses are interesting in that they are a magnification of the personality of their owner(s). What is going well and what is going wrong can always be traced back to those at the top. Good things about an owner become the strengths of the business, and if an owner is weak in one area, that will become a weak area of the business...

I was starting to feel as though I was always underwater with my duties. More and more emails came in, more personnel problems, equipment issues, lease issues, special projects, marketing opportunities. The list is endless. I quickly realized that I needed a way to handle all this new work...
