Matt asks the question:
Hi Bella, I guess [my question] would be some actionable best practices for breaking thru that wall in business. IE. Going from a 40,000 pet sitting business to a 100,000 + business.
Without further ado, here is your answer all laid out:
Your Pet Sitting Business Is Like A Car Engine
You have to think of a car with an engine. In order to get up to those higher speeds the engine needs to be efficient. The way a business works when making 40K typically isn’t going to be the same way when it is making 100K
In Order To Have a Breakthrough, You Must Control Areas Of Your Business So It Doesn’t Control You.
Control is a big part of it. It rarely every happens just because. You have to be intentional about it. You have to control every
aspect of your business and make decisions that line up with your 100K goal. Each decision that comes into your business you have to ask yourself, “Will this help me get closer or further away from it?”
Here are some areas where you can control the outcome and put in place systems that will help you achieve the system that it takes to take it to a six figure business.
As a warning, I want to say that the biggest difference between a 40K business and 100K business is that the more volume that comes in, the less of EVERYTHING a business owner can do. They can’t possibly do it all anymore because there is too much to do. Those that attempt end up being burnt out of not good at a lot because they are stretched too thin. This, is where creating systems comes into play and learning how to control them. Here are areas that you can control and create systems for:
Control the marketing.
Control the leads and sales process
Control the follow up.
Control the sitters schedules
Control the quality
Learn to delegate more. small and big tasks. website, graphics, social media,
It is like that car that is coasting along the freeway. You can let your foot off the gas. Someone else can take the steering wheel.
