You are in business to make money, and every single little thing you think, plan and do, must be about this one goal. And when you hear and repeat the statement: “The end justifies the means”, then all the means that you take, all roads that you explore, all activities that you participate in must be about the end result of making money. After all this is why you call yourself a business owner, an entrepreneur, a financial guru, a money maker and all the other great titles attributed to you. So now that I have explained all this to you, then you can begin to realize that you must not waste time, you must add time to make money for yourself, for your business partners, stockholders, employees and the charities that are counting on your great success to make a difference in the world.
So what is that one thing that you must stop doing right now to make money in your business at all times?
Stop raking leaves.
Yes beloved you read me correctly, stop raking leaves in your business. In other words stop doing frivolous things that have nothing to do with you making money. And for example, stop cruising the internet when you are at your home or business office, looking for gossip or shocking news. Instead go to other websites that are similar to yours and your business, and read a quick article there, then leave a great comment adding a link to your site and start to build up strong related back links, so your site and online biz can become popular and attract new customers.
Or stop going to business luncheons just to get out of your office, and you are not meeting anyone who could be a potential customer, business partner or supplier, and all you do there is daydream and eat. So instead of raking financial leaves there, go to your website and write a new piece of content, a review, an educational post, some tips, so the search engines could love you and rank your website higher, which will cause organic online traffic to be sent your way. Or call up your established customers and ask them for referrals, also update them on your next sale and pre-sale so they could be the first ones there to fill up your pockets again.
Or stop filing away every useless piece of paper, and just keep on raking financial leaves that the market of a wind keeps on blowing about. Instead, set up a time like an hour or two a week, for you to perform this task. And your business receipts, your account payable and receivable paperwork are the only ones that are absolutely necessary to file for your accountant, for tax purposes, for understanding what you owe and what is owed to you. So stop filing away magazine subscriptions, or junk mail and think that you will need them one day soon, because they will keep on sending you all these 15 times over. So focus on a task that will make you money right now, like making phone calls to potential customers, sending out emails to suppliers offering great bulk prices on new purchases.
In conclusion, to keep on making money right now, just stop and think about each task you are about to get involved in, whether it is talking to someone, going to lunch, filing away paperwork, cruising the internet, hiring and firing employees etc. Ask yourself first: Could I and should I delegate this to others right now, or could this wait later on, and will this activity make me money right now? And if it will make you new money or save you money, then jump in. But if not, then find 3 things that you can do in the next hour that has the potential of making you a sale, and bringing new money to your business and new money into your pockets, then you can do these tasks. So build this habit into your mind, and each time you are about to do something ask yourself if you are about to be raking financial leaves, and if you are, pick 3 quick things from your to-do-list that will make you money and do those instead. That way you will keep on saving on old money and keep on making new money. Your business coach, James Dazouloute
