A few weeks ago I wrote about leveling up your business and how that is better than scaling up. It’s 10x scale type stuff.
This morning I was thinking it might be worth mentioning that you should have levels in your business, in all parts of your business.
The key is all levels don’t have to move at the same pace, sometimes it’s more one than the other.
Getting product into the country right now for q4 needs to be 10x, you can’t get it into the warehouse unless it is in the country. Things happen that you can not control, shipping companies go bankrupt, so get this right, right now? Level this up.
So go all in getting things ready to sell, you can pull back on other things to find time. So scale back time in finding new products to sell, get more of the products you know that sell!
Let me say that again:
” Scale back time in finding new products to sell, and spend more time getting more of the products you know that sell!”
Find new vendors who have the products in stock, buy out a competitor if it makes financial sense. Search now. Look at non-traditional sources. Ask your existing out-of-stock vendors who they know who might have inventory, the squeaky wheel gets the grease! Level up the conversations, find it and you will win.
Take time this year to look at cycles in your business, build a roadmap for next year. The levels get easier as you know where to spend your limited valuable attention. Time is the greatest and most precious commodity you have right now.
Be sure not to level down your mental or physical health at this critical time. It’s time to keep the intensity up, level up and watch your diet, it’s easy to rationalize the ten pack of Reese cups or the two pounds of Strawberry Twizzlers! 🙂
Break out the time, make it non-negotiable. Don’t miss the Special moments, they only come once. This is a “Life” style business we are building. Make you’re life the best it can be.
