Over the past 35 years I’ve built or bought 15 different businesses. All but one was a successful. However, the successes came at a steep cost.
I’m on my 3rd marriage, and up until 4 years ago, I hardly knew my kids, and they didn’t have much use for me.
Why am I telling you this? Because I know, first hand, the sacrifices we owners make, and its just crazy no one needs to work like a dog in their business … no one.
Let me tell you a quick story ……
The guy I bought the business from had been a business broker for a very long time and was of a “pack-rat.”
When I closed in the business, I got filing cabinets dating way back into the 1990’s and I had the unique opportunity to review hundreds of old business files.
While Reviewing and Digging Through the Records,
Very Distinct Patterns Began to Emerge!
This may, or may not come as a shock to you, but here it is …
In Every Instance: If the business owner worked in the business for More than 20 hours per week, the business suffered in one way or another, and in the end, the overwhelming majority of them end up closing their doors for one reason or another.
The business went BUST, or the owner just closed the doors in defeat! They may have tried to sell the business, but no buyers showed up. If they tried to hand it down to the future generation, well, I’m not willing go there in this blog.
In Every Instance: If the business owner worked in the business for Less than 20 hours per week, the exact opposite happened! The business flourished and operated smoothly and profitably. The business was valuable and easily sold quickly and at the full asking price or slightly higher.
Needless to say, after noticing the pattern I immediately began working on changing the way I did my own business and within 6 months, I got my workweek down to 20 hours or less!
Long Story Short …… The Purpose of a Business Is To Give The Business Owner More Time and A Better Life.
