Helping his clients to better build sustainable profitable businesses
Systems need to n be in writing if it’s not in writing and done verbal it’s not consistent, sort of like playing that game of telephone.
The nice part on systems is that the systems create a duplicable process each and every time.
So how do you create systems? Brian says first sit down and figure out the maybe 3 biggest problem areas you are having and just start with them .i could be customer service ,it could be make sure the vehicle is stocked properly before leaving for a job, to a simple flow chart for work procedure. But wwhat ever it is start with the 3 that are the biggest then they are documented then go to the next 3 and so on until you have your operations manual.
Bu=y taking care of the 3 it will relieve so much stress in your life and free up your time.
Its like trying eating the elephant you do it one at a time. The ultimate goal is to document what you want done and how you what it done.
It’s really important to get it out of your head.
The key is getting consistent results.
Sometime the problems we have with in our business are inter related if handled properly it will eliminate ancillary problems.
The systems we create will help us to better business people in the market place.
Within our systems we help our client’s solve their problems but we have to ask them a series fo questions to find out what they are so we can effectively solve the problem , yes that is a system .
Systems help us run our business instead our businesses running us.
