How to Keep Growing Your Business Even If You Have to Take Time Off

In this episode, Barbara shares with Matt and the listeners, her own personal journey of the process she followed to ‘fire herself from her own business’ when a very important life event – having a baby – meant she had to step right back from the day-to-day running of her business.

This episode focuses on the step-by-step process that Barbara followed to ensure that her business went from strength to strength, whilst she focussed on being a mother to her baby girl.

Some of the areas covered include:

Think expansion, rather than contraction
The importance of strategic planning – taking yourself out of business processes is a process within itself
Don’t expect your new processes to work from day one – allow time to smooth out any ‘bumps’ and refine your processes before you ‘exit’ the business
How to empower your team to make important decisions in your absence
The importance of having the right people, in the right seats
Believing in your people and their abilities ultimately leads to a more engaged team and successful business
