With everything a business owner has to accomplish in a day to keep the business going, we can find it difficult to find any time to work on the business. Scheduling time into every week to step away from the running of the business and spend the time to work on the strategies and changes that need to take place to take the business “to the next level” is critical. By setting specific time each week aside and having an agenda ready, you can make the changes needed in your business to ensure success. If you are always “putting out fires” you can find you do not have the time to figure out how to keep the fire from igniting in the first place. One way to help ensure the needed time is available is to have a “model week” and stick to it. You are the one to decide which calls you will take, when you can be interrupted, when you will be in and out of the office and how you will manage your time. Effective time management can bring you success in business. And lack of it, can break you.
