Before I jump into this week’s news, I’m curious to know how well you systematise your business.

After a few recent consulting sessions I’m starting to see a reoccurring theme with small and medium sized business owners – 9/10 aren’t creating business systems. They have failed to document their core procedures and it’s causing a whole bunch of headaches. I actually made this point in my OPM2 presentation about the entrepreneurial stages (you may have seen it).

So, how are your business systems / standard operating procedures?

Step #1. Is admitting you have a problem ๐Ÿ˜‰
Step #2. Is doing something about it.

I’m putting together something I think can help but I’d love to work with a few more business owners to find out where they’re stumbling on this one. It’s critical to business growth yet most miss it. Would you be keen to share with me your experiences? Just shoot me an email. I’d really love to chat.

And if nothing more, use this as prompt to revisit the way you document your business systems.

And now… onto this week’s news:
