A Business Coach Helps You Determine the Overall Score of Your Business
It is very important that you go through the exercise of determining the overall score for your company IMMEDIATELY. You cannot know what you need to do to move into a place where you can achieve both financial and time freedoms until you first know where you are right now. If you are sincerely passionate about moving from where you are to where you want to be, you need an honest, objective and reliable evaluation of the current state of your business. We’ve provided the tools for you at Thrive15.com to get that evaluation.
“A healthy company culture encourages people to share bad news. A company that discusses its problems freely and openly can quickly solve them. A company that covers up its problems frustrates everyone involved.” -Ben Horowitz (Self-made billionaire, the co-founder of Opsware which was acquired by Hewlett-Packard for $1.6 billion cash. The co-founder of Andreesen Horowitz)
“What is trust? I could give you a dictionary definition, but you know it when you feel it. Trust happens when leaders are transparent, candid, and keep their word. It’s that simple. Your people should always know where they stand in terms of their performance. They have to know how the business is doing. And sometimes the news is not good—such as imminent layoffs—and any normal person would rather avoid delivering it. But you have to fight the impulse to pad or diminish hard messages or you’ll pay with your team’s confidence and energy.” -Jack Welch, author of Winning (Bestselling author and arguably the most effective modern day executive in American history, having grown GE by over 4000% during his tenure)
If you are just starting a business or attempting to grow your business systematically for the first time, it is more than likely that your scores are not going to be very great at this point. This does not mean that you are weird, this means that you are normal and that you have room for specific and detailed improvement. Most owners I have met over the years have no idea where they are, where they are going or how to get there and so they end up just reading endless numbers of motivational success and self-improvement books in between attending motivational seminars. But this is not you. You are focused on achieving success and you are willing to invest both the time and money needed to turn your business dreams into reality.
“I went to Google, typed in San Francisco chauffeur or San Francisco limousine, I just filled out an excel sheet and I just started dialing for dollars, right? First ten guys I called, three of them hung up before I got a few words out, a few of them would listen for like 45 seconds and then hung up, and three of them said ‘I’m interested, let’s meet.’ And if you’re cold calling and three out of ten say ‘let’s meet’, you’ve got something.” -Travis Kalanick (Founder of Uber)
As a business coach, I know you will quickly increase your scores in each area once you commit yourself to following the path called, “Guaranteed Success on Thrive15.com.” When you are first starting a business, the most critical Booming Business Foundational Principles you must diligently observe are both the Marketing / Sales and the Executing Your Daily Operations Foundational Principles. If you are reading this right now and your score in the area of Marketing / Sales is dangerously low, you must commit yourself to improving your systems for generating leads, closing deals, and bringing in business. However, you must also be committee to simultaneously creating the best systems, checklists and processes available to help you Execute Your Daily Operations. I cannot force you to do this, but I highly recommend that you HOLD YOURSELF ACCOUNTABLE FOR EVALUATING ALL FIVE OF YOUR BOOMING BUSINESS FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPLES EVERY QUARTER.
Now that we have an overall understanding of the systems we must build in order to create a business that is capable of producing the time and financial freedom you desire, we must now get to work implementing the specific improvements in each aspect of our business to produce sustainable growth quickly.
