Are you Operating like a Manager, or a Leader of your Life and Business? Shift into a Success Mindset Today! EP207

Are you operating like a Manager or a Leader? Not sure if you know this part of my entrepreneurial journey, 4.5 years into running my business full-time, I still couldn’t grow it past 350-400K/year. Yes I’m aware that is still a great amount of revenue, but the business wasn’t growing and I felt stuck. I worked harder, longer, frantically Goggled all the things, and my business still wouldn’t grow. I was so tried, fried, and sick of it that I finally hired a business coach to help me figure out what I was doing wrong. Yes it took me that long to ask for help!!! (not recommended) One of the life-changing moments is when my coach pointed out to me that I was operating like a Manager inside my business (and life) and not a leader. Truthfully, I didn’t even really grasp the difference, but slowly the light bulb turned on. A Manager focuses on putting out fires, tending to employee’s and contractor’s needs, checking in on projects, reviewing and correcting everyone’s work, basically getting into the weeds of it all. A Leader focuses on the mission and vision of the company, while creatively coming up with new products and services to meet the needs of their customers. Allowing other people to deal with weeds and the rest of the garden, while I map out the overall landscaping. (you knew I couldn’t resist that analogy) Being a Manager was familiar to me, as that was my role in the corporate world, I had never been shown how to be a Leader, let alone thinking little ‘ole me could be one. The difference between building a 6-figure business and a 7 or 8-figure business, is becoming a Leader, and feeling you have the right to be in that position.
