Many entrepreneurs learn the hard way that we can’t hustle and grind our way out of a business without systems and processes. Our business should free us from the day-to-day routine tasks that consume our time and energy.


Business leaders who feel trapped by their businesses don’t just end up with stress, they rob themselves of the ideas and insights that provide exponential growth. We are supposed to be visionaries, but we can’t have that role if we’re running the business reactively.


How do we improve our business by implementing effective systems? How can we go from feeling trapped to experiencing the freedom and creativity we need? In this episode, I’m joined by the Founder of CEO Nation, Steve Richards. He shares how to go from hustle and grind to running a well-oiled machine that’s based on effective systems.


Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode


The difference between being in a rut and in a groove
When we feel stuck in a negative frame of mind with no direction, we call it being in a rut. When we’re stuck but on a linear path and in a positive frame of mind, we call it being in a groove. The difference is our mindset, perspective and context.


How to stop being the foundation of our businesses so systems can take over
Our role is creating the vision for our business, putting the right systems and people in place, and letting the systems do the heavy lifting. That’s why we need to find and utilize systems and people we can trust.


Why the Profit First model works
Most business owners treat profit and free time as a reward we get after doing good work, but we should actually start with profit and all the good things that make us better business owners. Good things like making profit, spending time with our families, and having free time to ourselves go together. We have to make time for those things and set them up first.
