How Stand Backed are you?
Answer 30 questions to find out how much your business currently depends on you.
Understand, why your business depends so much on you.
Everything begins innocently – if you’re good at something, you started a business, doing what you’re best at.
Because you are good at what you do and you take care of your customers, you naturally offer a good service. Inevitably, your customers come back and refer friends, so you start to grow. At some point you need “an extra pair of hands”, so you start to employ people.
“If there’s anything you don’t know, come and ask me” – is probably a mantra you keep repeating when bringing in new employees, teaching them from the very beginning that you are the centrepiece of the business.
You are still able to handle all your customers’ and employees’ requests, so your business continues to grow, although you are running on full throttle and reaching the limits of what your mind and body can handle. You have created yourself a system (business) that works only with you being the Chief Firefighter. You reach a state of overwhelm, where you don’t even want to hear about further growth, yet downsizing is not an option. This is when you need to Stand Back!
Watch this video and learn about the natural growth phases of each business and why you need to escape the trap of being the centrepiece of your company.

Stand Back updates.
Before starting a business, we have a budget for preparing our beloved new shop/restaurant. Quite often this is borrowed money, yet we spend it like there is no tomorrow. After a few years, profits are withdrawn and there is no money left to keep refreshing it.
Money in a business is like oxygen to humans; we don’t live to breathe, but we have to breathe to live. The business does not exist only to make money but without money the business wouldn’t even exist. The problem with entrepreneurs and business owners is that they have this grand idea for a business, but they often lack basic knowledge of how money works and how to manage money in their business!
Puregym is a great example of a Stand Back Company that works without the owner. It has over 200 locations, so the owner physically cannot be running all the gyms at the same time. It is also the first UK gym to gain 1,000,000 members and I am one of them.
In this video I show the solutions that have allowed this business to become such a success.
