Business owners and their businesses can both get stuck and problems transfer from one to the other as the business owner is often the main driver of what happens in the business and bears the burden of responsibility.
The business owner can also take his work troubles home.
It creates a vicious circle.
Problems at work distract you and make you grumpy and irritable.
You go home, snap at your husband or wife and kids and have an argument. One of you may sulk and there is a bad atmosphere at home.
Back at work, you’re still grumpy and might take it out on your employees.
Suppliers let you down, customers change their minds, cancelling some orders, delaying others and placing urgent orders they need yesterday. Business becomes more stressful and your hours get extended.
You miss key family events, upsetting your kids and husband or wife again.
The cycle goes on and on… until you say “ENOUGH” and do something about it or your business and/or home life collapses around you.
You may have seen it happen to friends. Happy lives spiral out of control when you and you business get stuck.
Below are a series of articles and book reviews to help you to get back in control and to get unstuck. These articles will remind you about what is important to you and to encourage you to stop drifting like a victim and get back to the real you, the go-getter who started your business full of hope and dreams.
Some of these are very much focused on you and why you feel stuck. Others focus on your business and will help to explain why performance is disappointing and what you can do to turn it around.
If you’ve read my tagline at the top of the page, you’ll see that I’m very much focused on helping business owners who are stuck with disappointing marketing, to get unstuck. Almost inevitably my coaching widens out from there.
If it’s books you’re after, I have three categories to help you to find what you need. Some of these may appear unusual but I feel they all fit with moving from stuck to unstuck.
