Does your business support your lifestyle or consume it?

For too many business owners the latter is the answer. When you find yourself with too many demands and too much stress, you have to stop and find a new game plan. You are not your business and your business is not your life, but it may seem that way to some.
What was your vision when you started or bought your business? Were you hoping to name your own hours and make more money? Were you hoping to take more time off to enjoy your family and hobbies? How is your plan working out? I’ll bet your vision didn’t include long hours with lots of stress.
If you are good at what you do and your business is growing, chances are you find yourself with far too many demands and too much stress. Trying to manage multiple projects and get your employees to follow through so that the work gets done the way you want is challenging.
You have to find work to keep everyone working, bid the jobs, lay out the projects, manage the projects, invoice the work, collect the money, etc. What happened to your vision? You find that even when you aren’t at work, you’re thinking about work. The stress is too much at times.
Your wife or partner wants you to be with the family when you’re home, but you can’t relax. You have to make sure you have your payroll and expenses covered for the week. How can you relax? Your wife just doesn’t understand the stress you’re under. The stress at home just adds to the stress you already have at work. Something has to give.
I’ve seen many owners end up in divorce due to the stress of running a small business without adequate planning. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can make changes that will allow you to realize the vision you had at the beginning. You’re just too close to the forest to see the trees. All that is required is the desire and willingness to change.
In my book, “5 Pillars For The Ideal Lifestyle Of The Construction Company Owner” I lay out the 5 steps that are required to reduce the demands and stress in your business. I show you a step by step process for developing the organizational structure and systems you need in order to bring sanity back into your business. Let’s put the fun back into dysfunction!
