Leverage Your Strengths

When you focus on building a business around you and your strengths – your growth potential is incredible.  

Why?

When you do what you are naturally good at & enjoy:

  • It is easier i.e. it doesn’t feel like work.
  • You get better results, simply because you’re confident and you’re good at what you do. 
  • You are much more motivated because you look forward to doing the work & it comes easily to you. 

So as you grow, I want you to focus on building a business around your strengths.

Hold onto and continue doing the high-value activities that you’re good at and come naturally to you. Then make a plan to delegate and get some help with (as soon as you can and revenue allows it) the things that you aren’t good at or don’t come naturally to you

Why?

Because the more you stay in and own the areas of the business that you’re really good at and then bring on team that are exceptional in the areas that you’re not - you’ll deliver outstanding service. It’s as simple as that.

Now, a necessary step in business growth is delegation.

It is natural that when you’re starting out, you will probably be doing everything yourself (aka flying solo). This means that you’ll be doing the things that you aren’t that great at and that you don’t enjoy so much. But once you start to grow, you can afford to delegate. 

Why is it important to delegate?

Because it leaves more room for you to do what you do best.

We all have different skill sets. It is only natural that we are good at some things and not so good at others.

It’s important to remember when delegating tasks that you never want to delegate the tasks that you’re great at. Utilise your unique skill set, and let others who have a complementary skill set in other areas do what they do best.

So how do you build a business around your strengths? 

  1. Get clear on the activities you enjoy and that make you the most money. 
  2. Do a "week in review" every week and look at the common tasks you're doing that you don't enjoy. 
  3. Make a plan for getting some help and delegating the activities you're not good at and aren't a good use of your time. 
  4. Double down on the things you love in your business and watch it grow!
