Are you running a Family Business, or a Small Business and you feel like you’re stuck in there, you’re caught in the day to day activities and you can’t seem to escape? No matter how hard you try, you can’t find a way to pull yourself out.

You’re working long hours, lots of days, you’re so entrenched in it that it basically can’t work without you and you’re trying to figure out a way to get some time back for yourself. You ask yourself “how do I pull myself back so that I can either grow the business or remove myself a bit more so I work on strategies to make it even better”.

Here’s three ways that you can learn to remove yourself a bit more from the business, so you can focus on growing it rather than been stuck in it. This will also enable you to take back the time and personal power you so desperately need.

1.    Loosen Your Grip

  • Nurture
  • Develop
  • Encourage

2.    STOP looking for “Another Me”

3.    Build a PLAN

  • How to transition yourself out
  • Who will step in?
  • Where am I going once I’m out?

First things first, as business owners and Leaders we to “Loosen Your Grip”. Now, I understand we don’t want to fully let go of it, your business is important to you. But we need to learn how to loosen our grip and we need to nurture, develop and encourage the team that we have around us.

If you look at the people that are working for you simply as just “employees” that I need to pay, then that’s how they’re going to behave.

As leaders, you need to nurture and encourage them and develop them into a way that you want them to grow into the business. They are your key to being able to step back a bit more from the day to day activities and you achieve this by letting them take a bit more control and responsibility for themselves.

So, letting go that little bit and stopping with the “do it my way” and “it needs to be done this way” attitude or my favourite is the “get out of my way, I’ll just do it myself”. What’s happening in these situations is that you’re ultimately pushing them away from wanting to try harder. They’re going to just see their job as “I’m here to get paid”, that’s how they’re going to behave, that’s going to frustrate you because you want to try and do something different and that’s where you’re going to clash.

Step two, “Stop looking for another me”. Do you know how many times I hear business owners saying “I just need to find another me”? Well, no, you don’t. That’s not going to work because there isn’t another you. You’re an individual, the people that are going to come into your business are individuals.

To grow and develop you want to find someone better than you, and someone who has their strengths that can complement your weaknesses. It’s no good having two people that are great at the same thing.

Focus on finding somebody who has unique abilities that they can bring to the business. That might even be part of that nurture, developing, encourage part of loosening your grip on this business.

Stop trying to find someone who’s going to be identical to you, because you’re just going to be disappointed. Furthermore, you’re going to push away potential people that have the ability to come through and make your business better.

Step three: let’s “Build a plan”. What does my exit strategy look like? What’s this transition is going to be? How’s it going to look?

Also start to ask yourself – Who?! Who is this person we’re going to bring in? What do they look like? What skills do they need? What qualities do they need? What characteristics do we want to see in these people?

The important factor is you need to actually build a physical tangible plan that you can refer to and look at so you know what we’re actually looking for. You need to also look at where am I going to go once I find this person to transition out of?

This is the key questions because you need to have a plan of well, “why do I need this person?” Be personal with yourself. Is it more time with your family? Is it more time to focus on a certain aspect of the business? Really narrow it down as to what’s the reason for finding this person and identify who this person is really going to look like.

What are they going to look like to you in your business. If you map it out, and you write it down, you’ve got something that you’re going to pay attention to in the future. Now, the plan is not going to be perfect to start, but it’s going to tweak and change as you’re playing around with it. But you have to have something tangible that you can focus on.

Recapping: The three things you want to do to help pull yourself out of that day to day mundaneness of your business and allow yourself to focus on growing it and making it better.

1.    Loosen Your Grip
