Spring is a lovely reminder of how beautiful change can really be.Anon
Spring is the perfect time to re-evaluate what’s working and what’s not in your business.
There is an energy which abounds in Spring. An energy which invites renewal and reinvention. It almost pushes us towards clearing out the old to make space for the new.
From re-evaluating your priorities, to your profitability, here are the four ways Rob and I use this month to spring clean our business.
Do you have a written-down, crystal clear vision for your life?
Most people have a vague idea of what they want (more time, more money, more freedom), but they haven’t nailed it down to specifics nor why having it is important to them. This means the majority of people never actually achieve what they want out of life. They simply settle for what they get.
So if you’re feeling like you’re caught in ‘Groundhog Day’, or just not particularly excited about the future, or your business, having a clear picture of what you’re working towards can literally turn that around overnight.
Just these last couple of weekends, Rob & I have been hosting clients at our home while they work with us on their life story. The difference in their outlook and their belief in what’s possible from when they arrive to when they leave is astonishing. They go home excited about the future, and confident in their ability to make it happen.
This time of year is a great time to stop and ask yourself…

Right now, it’s CRITICAL you have the right people on your bus. No business owner can afford to carry under-performing employees in this economic market.
The fastest and easiest way to assess whether or not you’ve got the right people on the bus is with the Competence-Commitment Model. You can download the model for FREE, along with a video training on how to use it simply by opting in for my Foundations For A High-Performing Team Resource Bundle (Link to Optin Form).
I’m not at all suggesting you completely overhaul your processes, but now’s a great time to look for the 1% improvements.
Have every employee – and yourself – answer this question…
“What could we be doing better?”
Lots of incremental 1% improvements create significant change over time.
In my experience, business owners do not review their numbers often enough. Sure, their accountant submits their BAS every quarter, but how deep do you go into translating those numbers into usable information to drive your business forward?
There you have it. The four ways Rob & I have re-evaluated our business this month and every Spring. If you’d like to know more about anything I’ve raised in this blog, I encourage you to reach out. Rob and I are here to support you achieving the business and life you want for you and your family.
