In life and in business, how easy is it to get distracted and fail to fix the most important issues at hand, especially as a small business owner? Days quickly turn into weeks, months, and years – before you know it, you wonder how the heck did we get here?
Small 2nd generational businesses in particular really struggle to make or find the time to improve because it is common for the visionary and leaders to be extremely caught up in the tactical day-to-day noise of the business. By the time the business owner(s) make the sale, put out another fire, save a client who is pissed, fix a complicated issue there is “no time” to fix core issues. When companies are scaled there are simply more resources available, but what do you do when you are a smaller 20 or so person company but need to make critical decisions that impact the company for years?
