Business Coach | Why a Six-Day Workweek Is So Important

Many business owners do not know what they do not know about working in a business says business coach. Which is why it so beneficial to have a business plan.

Not only will a business plan allow an entrepreneur to have goals. That they can then make a plan on how they are going to reach those goals. And what they need to work on each day to achieve those goals.

But that business plan will ensure that a business owner has a well thought out marketing plan, and financial plan. That will be important to help them succeed.

What a business plan can also do. Is allow an entrepreneur to create a time block to schedule. So that they can ensure that they have enough time in their schedule. To work on those tasks to reach their goals.

However, business owners are putting all of the tasks that they need to get accomplished into their schedule. Business coach says they tend to start to realize that working a five day, forty hour work week is not possible.

Therefore, the sooner that business owners can embrace a six-day workweek. The sooner they are going to be able to have a schedule that will help them succeed. Because they will have time to get all of their strategic priorities accomplished.

In addition to that, entrepreneurs are going to need to set aside time for things that they might not assume they had to schedule. Such as administrative duties.

The reason for this says business coach. Is because many business owners think that they are going to be able to get their administrative duties done in much less time than it actually takes.

And business owners may think that they are going to be able to get administrative tasks done in the last twenty minutes of their day. Or that they can take it home and work on it there.

And not only will the administrative tasks take so much time that a business owner will not be able to do them at the end of their day and get them to completed.

But also, even if they do take the tasks home with them at night. They might not be any more likely to get it done. Because they are relaxing, as well as spending time with their family.

But even if they do work on their administrative tasks at home. Again, they might find that it will take more time than they thought it would. Which will end up with them working harder, when they should be enjoying their family.

But also, they might feel resentful, because they always feel like they are at work. And it might also make their family resentful, because they are always working when they are home.

Therefore, it is far better for business owner to schedule a six-day workweek. And then have enough time for all of their tasks. And never have to work over time, or work from home.

The sooner business owners understand how many days a week they need to work in their business. The sooner that they can do that schedule, and be more likely to succeed.

What Does It Cost To Hire Your Business Coach?

 

Business owners may not realize how much time it takes to do all of the strategic priorities says business coach. Which may lead to them not getting enough accomplished early on in their business.

This can set businesses up for failure. And of the sooner they realize they have to work longer hours when they are new entrepreneur. The better off they are going to be, to get things accomplished.

Not only will they need to work on all of the billable tasks that will help them sell products and services. But they need to also get all of the tasks done that are important as a business owner.

This includes administrative duties, sales and marketing tasks. As well as setting aside time to recruit and train staff. And developing checklists and templates.

Many entrepreneurs get into business ownership. Because they are extremely good at the business that industry they been working in for many years. Whether they are dentists, welders, or lawyers just to name a few.

Just because they know the industry that they are in very well. Does not mean that they know how to run a business successfully. Which is why they often need to hire a business coach to help them.

There business coach can often help them create a time block schedule. That has time for accomplishing all of their billable tasks. But also, has spots for all of their other tasks that need to get done to run a business successfully.

For example, if business owners do not set aside time to do sales and marketing. They may not be able to attract customers at all. With 42% of all failed entrepreneurs saying this is the number one reason why they were not successful in business.

But also, if they do not set aside time to do sales and marketing consistently. They will not be able to attract customers consistently. And will find that a very busy week. Will be followed by a period where they are not busy at all.

And if they only use this lack of busy time to do their sales and marketing. That they will always have that pattern in their business, and will find it difficult to have consistency.

Therefore, by having time set aside regularly for sales and marketing. Can help business owners grow their business in a more even and measured way. And that will allow them to plan things like recruiting staff.

Recruiting staff is also something that business owners should have time set aside for. Even if they are not actively hiring people.

Because studies have shown that entrepreneurs need to meet about a hundred people. In order to meet one right person for their business. So by putting this into their calendar on a regular basis. Can increase the chances of an entrepreneur having met the right person for their business.

Which means whenever they do have an opening, he can call on this pool of qualified candidates. So that they never have to be looking for someone on a reactionary basis.

There are many things that can help entrepreneurs succeed in business. They just need to have the right business coach that will help them understand what they need to do.
