Today we have Part II of the Success Compass – Finding Your Direction piece. If you missed last week’s edition please Click Here to read it first!

Success Compass 3) Environment

Environment dictates the level of success you can achieve. Think of your environment as a container that either lifts you up or drags you down.

A business environment can either be a balloon that allows you to soar above the competition or a weight that is constantly pulling you down in your pursuit of success.

The environment that you create as a CEO must be one that allows you to be the best that you can be. This often will look significantly different and have different pieces in it then the environment you might have held when you first started your business or first began to grow your business. The environment of a CEO, out of necessity, should be unique.

Exercise: Think about what environment you need to help you grow in your business and personally. What people lift you up and encourage you to be the best? And what personality types interfere with your ability to be proactive and succeed?

What sort of environment do you respond to favorably? What habits do you need to break to move onward and upward into a 7 figure business?

4) Skills and Knowledge

Jumping into a seven-figure business does require some different knowledge. Knowledge and skills are vastly different when you become a CEO as opposed to the days of entrepreneurship when you found yourself doing it all.

You should no longer see yourself as a jack-of-all-trades but should begin to hone and sharpen the skills necessary to run a successful company.

There are some changes in your knowledge, skills and education that need to adjust and grow for business success. Learn how to stop doing everything! Trust the individuals that are on your team to share the workload with you so that you can focus your time and energy on what you do best.

Exercise: Once you have determined your major role in the organization moving forward, you will be able to identify exactly which skills you need to hone in on and develop further. Find a mentor, get your hands on ebooks or courses that a tailored specifically to this skill set so you can become the best of the best at what you do.

Analyzing the “Success Compass” and implementing this new direction into your own business is your first step to a blossoming into a seven figure sensation.

Success Compass Like the four cardinal directions on a compass, there are basically four central factors for success that move an Entrepreneur beyond five figures and into CEO of a high six figure and beyond business. The big leap lies in banishing the “what do I have to do” attitude in their business towards a “what would have to happen so that we can create this” mentality. One focuses inward, ultimately creating a bottleneck in business creativity, and the other paves the way for creative collaboration and ownership of the business.

Each part of the four essential elements to creating and sustaining huge success is necessary and vital. Like the four legs of a table, one without any of the others will still put you in a place of instability. You have to learn to see each element as critically important for the whole to function.

1) Mindset

The CEO is the gatekeeper of the company’s values. In order to be successful as a CEO and a 7 figure business owner specifically, you need to determine exactly what your vision is.

You need to examine what you really want to achieve with your business. How you want the business to serve others. What your central values and beliefs are with regards to your organization and how you want it to function.

You need to be clear within yourself first before others can take this vision on board and implement it throughout the different levels of the company.

Once you have a good concept of this vision you need to spread the word. Share your vision clearly with the other members on your team so that they too can start to live and breath that vision.

Begin to think out of the box and set yourself in a growth position. Begin to think beyond yourself and figure out how those around can help move your vision forward as well.

You can no longer look at your business as a solo entity, it is more than that now. A well-constructed vision should be able to move forward without your presence.

Exercise: You need to get to the root of your vision. What made you get into this business in the first place, what makes you tick, what drives you to succeed every day, what do you really want to achieve. Tapping into those deep desires will be key to constructing a clear vision for where you want to take your business, how you want to best serve your clients and how you want to change the world in your own way.

Take time to think about each of these motivators and how they can help you focus your efforts and mindset to produce greater results for your business.

2) Habits and Actions

The transition from entrepreneur to a successful CEO of a seven-figure company depends heavily on your habits and actions. The habits that got you to 6 figures need a major adjustment before they can hit the 7 range.

Your habits as CEO will will be the driving force behind the success or failure of the company.

The main impediment for many people is that they are running their companies like an entrepreneur and not a CEO. You must see yourself as a leader and not like a marketer or a person of their trade.

Begin to form habits and actions that characterizes someone who has a clear vision and is ready and willing to make the necessary changes in their own life to move it forward.

You need to stop getting hung up on the every day tasks of your business and start to look at the bigger picture stuff. If there are tedious tasks taking up your time without generating a return then you need to seek help from other members on your team so you can move forward!

Exercise: Note down the actions or habits you have currently that may impede your ability to broach the 7 figure world. Think of the actions of successful CEO’s in your industry and determine how you can implement similar practices in your day to day life that will propel you forward.

Undeniable Power of Leverage I was coaching a client one day who was feeling rather overwhelmed. I invited her to start a process of writing down all of the responsibilities, projects, tasks and other “shoulds” that she had swimming around in her mind. When she called in for her next coaching session, I asked her how many things she had on her list. She had filled four pages of stuff that had to get done—right now!

As we went through her list the problem became crystal-clear, and it’s what I call the Multiple Train Syndrome.

This is why running your business alone doesn’t work.

Every role, project and task is a train that you must drive to the station (the end goal). If you insist on driving all the trains yourself, you will never get them all to the station. Multiple Trains Syndrome might be the reason why you aren’t accomplishing results fast enough.

So let’s put this into perspective: If you are the conductor of all of these trains…

AND they need YOU to put your attention on them in order to move forward…

AND you can truly only focus on one thing at a time…

THEN every time you get on one train… you HAVE TO get off the other one! Your trains will take forever to get into the station.

The solution to Multiple Train Syndrome?

Hire other people to drive the trains forward for you.

That’s where a virtual team comes in. To achieve an income and a lifestyle that you have admired in other successful entrepreneurs and wondered how to have for yourself, you must you must learn how to use leverage. This is accomplished in the three steps I have talked about before: money, systems and time.

Once you learn to leverage, your team will, in essence, replicate you (the “old” solo entrepreneur) in areas where you (the visionary) are “wasting” your time and talents in the day to day tasks that take care of your business—enabling YOU to become the SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS OWNER!

Now, let’s begin building a virtual team so you can start planning for your “bigger lifestyle goals”—vacations, getting more done and blowing the ceiling off your revenue projections!

I am sure you are asking yourself, “But what about WHERE I find these people and WHERE do I start and HOW do I do it? I want to make more money AND I want a better lifestyle as well!”

A virtual team is a group of independent contractors who are integral to a team approach in creating a collaborative end result.

The golden rule of thumb for virtual team building is: Hire to your weaknesses not your strengths. Hire complementary skill sets to your expertise and you will find it a freeing experience.

As entrepreneurs we must remember that people who balance us out may think entirely opposite to us and constantly challenge our way of thinking and getting things done. That is actually a good thing. If you are good at sales and client fulfillment, hire people who love to do the bookkeeping, appointment scheduling or customer service so you know that these essential components are being taken care of with enthusiasm and pride.

I want to leave you with something Theodore Roosevelt once said, ‘The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.’

When it comes to unlocking mega growth in your business, there are a number of keys that aren’t related to your day to day operations, that can be the difference between a mediocre corporation, and a great one. Fortunately however, they are simple things that are too often overlooked. Today we’re going look at 3 of these strategies.

1. Upgrading Your Vision

Fix Your Employee Woes When you’re chugging along each day in your business, it’s easy to get so caught up in day to day operations that you lose sight of your businesses big picture. Or maybe you keep sight of it, you just forget to upgrade that vision as your business grows.

The truth is that most people and most businesses are capable of results far beyond their own imaginations, and it’s not until you create a vision that inspires you every day that you can reach that outer limit of your potential.

If your goal is $200k a year in revenue, do something crazy and double it, even if you don’t think it’s possible. See how your thinking changes when you suddenly allow a bigger better result into your realm of possibility. Watch how you handle operations differently when you tell your mind that a whole new level is possible and is in your sights. It’s an enriching, and very profitable exercise!

Another way to spice up your vision is to tap into a mastermind or coach. For instance, if you discover that others are certifying people on their specific methodology or licensing their programs, you’ll have new ways to think about expansion. Sometimes you don’t know what’s possible until you know what others have accomplished.

2. Long Term Planning

Many business owners don’t even know they’re suffering from being caught up in short term thinking and short term planning.

Hint: if you’re more worried about what your revenue is going to be like next month, than this month next year, you’re probably not planning for the long term.

Do you know where your business is going to be in a year from now? In 2 years from now?

If you do, the day to day changing of the tides in your business can’t harm your progress or your growth, or your productivity. A long term plan should include your offerings, your financial reserves, your marketing strategy and your plan to uplevel (or scale up) your infrastructure.

When you think long term, every problem is less intense, everything can be handled, and everything is part of a bigger plan.

3. Building A Scalable Business

Building a scalable business means building operations that can be continually and strategically expanded to reproduce a result, usually a predictable profit for your business.

To do this, you need to keep removing yourself from the processes of your business and become a manager, an over seer, a CEO, who delegates and runs the systems of your business.

A scalable business means one with no limit to it’s growth potential, one where your time or the time of anyone else in your business can never be a limitation to your growth.

A scalable business is a business that is bigger than just you. It can run without you, and grow without you. That’s when you unlock ultimate growth potential.

When used in combination, these strategies can ignite a fire of growth in your business, and help you establish an organization that will free you both financially and physically in your life and set you up for a lifetime of prosperity and abundance.

If you’re an entrepreneur you’ve probably come across this situation before:

Revolutionize Your Business You’ve invested big into a new project, new venture, new employee, or new system…

You’ve spent months preparing this new thing, you’ve long been excited about it’s potential, and you’ve planned on it being a significant step in the growth of your business.

But at a certain point, things stop moving in the right direction. Progress is slow, the pieces of the puzzle aren’t fitting together, and you’re starting to wonder whether this project/venture/employee/system is really taking you in the direction of your company’s goals after all.

What happens next?

One of the most important skills of a CEO is to have an acute sensitivity to how closely a company’s actual results are to their desired results on a consistent basis. Not only that, but the CEO needs the strength to be able to make decisions based on these results without emotion and without bias.

As the CEO of your company, you’re the one who has to be able to spot the clouds on the horizon before the storms of trouble are gushing down on your business. When the writing’s on the wall about an employee not quite fitting right, a project delayed that little bit too long, or a venture not quite coming together as planned, you’re the one who has to be able to step in and make the tough decision on what to do about it. Do we shut this thing down, do we make a change NOW, or do we carry on as planned and wait it out…?

Sounds easy enough right? Actually it’s one of the hardest things you’ll ever learn as a CEO. So how is it done? How do the best CEO’s develop this quality and make these tough decisions?

Usually you’ll find that businesses and their CEO’s who possess this quality have a few things in common. Here’s some of those factors and how you can replicate them in your business:

1. Know your goals. The progress or success of any venture, employee, system, or project can only ever be known relative to the outcome or goal it was intended to achieve. It’s the old personal development mantra, if you don’t have firm goals, you can’t know whether or not you’re moving towards them and you can’t know whether or not a change in approach needs to be made. Having those clear goals known by everyone in your organization is key to your decision making ability.

2. Measure Your Progress – What can’t be measured can’t be improved. If you’re not measuring how well your new employee is doing, how effective your new system is at producing a result, you can’t tell how well it’s meeting your company’s goals. If you’re measuring properly, the numbers can make the decisions for you. Are quota’s being met? Is the goal being achieved? If yes, great, if no, bye bye. Hard decisions can get made for you if you’re properly measuring.

3. Don’t Be Scared To Be Wrong – You have to maintain a culture in your organization that being wrong isn’t failing. Being wrong, or rather, knowing and admitting quickly when you are wrong is something that should be upheld as amongst the highest of values. It’s when you have so much pride and so much fear of admitting that your plan for the project/employee/venture was wrong in the first place, that you find it hard to make that tough decision and shut it down. If there’s no fear of being wrong, admitting that you were is a whole lot easier.

Following these simple rules you can be the one who takes charge and makes the hard decisions that no one else wants to make.

And it’s when you have this capability as the leader of your business that your efficiency and your profitability rises to a whole new level.

Just because you run your business from home doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have your CEO cap on from the minute you sit down each morning. Here I’ll share ways to improve your productivity by matching your environment to your CEO mindset!

A common problem for people who run their business from home is that they slowly but surely move into unproductive work patterns due to a “hobbyist” environment.

If you’re not careful you’ll spend your days answering phone calls from your mother-in-law, trying to find your last invoice, stopping the dog from barking at the postman – all whilst keeping one eye on the computer screen and the other on Oprah (or a more masculine equivalent!)

Ok so that might be the extreme end of the spectrum but if you’re scoffing right now that you’re not anything like that – take a look around right now, what do you see?

Do you see an office that could suit a millionaire CEO or someone who’s scouring Ebay for a custom pair of Nikes?

Just because you run your business from home doesn’t mean you can’t create a professional environment that gets you in the zone for success, focus and productivity from the second you start your “work” day!

Now even though I work at home, I have a room dedicated to my office – and that’s it. It is so important to designate your “work space” and have it used solely for that purpose. It doesn’t matter where it is in your house as long as you know that when you sit down at that desk you have your CEO cap on and your mood, mindset and decisions reflect that.

In my home office I have a beautiful L shaped desk with matching credenza and bookcases so that my materials are handy. I have a computer and office chair set up that is ergonomically supportive for my body so I can work as long as I need to. I have professionally framed pictures on the wall of beautiful tropical destinations that inspire me. I shape my environment in a way that will enhance my productivity and build a breeding ground for great decisions, intense focus and a CEO mindset!

The bottom line here is that a CEO has a proper office environment for success.

Here’s a few pointers to help you move in the right direction for creating an effective office environment that will have you on FIRE with ideas, motivation and focus!

1. Pick a space where you can comfortably set up everything you need to run your home office e.g. desk, chair, filing cabinet, shelves etc. If you don’t have a spare room in your house don’t fret, find an area in your home that you can make your own – preferably away from the bulk of the noise, clutter and common areas.

2. Make sure you have adequate lighting in the room, preferably natural sunlight through a large window, but if not an appropriately placed lamp will do the trick to prevent you from straining your eyes.

3.  Set up an appropriate filing system so that everything you need is within arms reach and organized efficiently – regardless of how big or small your operation is. Color-coded manila folders or appropriately-labeled trays are a great place to start if you’re filing needs are on the lower end of the spectrum.

4. Make sure your workspace inspires you! Whether it is motivational quotes, a beautiful painting, a dream board or simply some music playing softly in the background – make sure your home office fuels your desire to succeed every moment of the day.

I was sitting by the pool with a couple of my clients when one of them made a funny comment to the other about packing her up (of course, so she could stay by the pool.) The conversation went on to include an exchange about how the bags were getting to the bellman and I noticed each of these two clients had vastly different ideas about what would work.

One client had called the bell desk, told them what she wanted to happen and was completely done with the task and was on to the next thing.

The other client was way more concerned about giving the proper directions, waiting to make sure the bellman actually arrived and understood the directions and would have the bags in the proper place.

Was one wrong and one right? Nope. They both have different preferences for how they like to get things done.

But here was the best part. This exchange was a perfect example of how they show up as leaders. And why one of them often times alienates her team and doesn’t get the results she wants.

In my 7 Figure CEO Protégé program I teach entrepreneurs a system I learned many years ago, called Insights™ Discovery. It’s a way of understanding our core preferences so that we better understand others – and in the process be able to have more productive work environments.

The way I use it with entrepreneurs is to teach them how they “process” information around them and how unconsciously, most of us hire, train, manage and communicate with others in a way that regularly alienates other people. I even see it with sales, marketing, speaking and training – if you don’t get that other people need to take in information differently than you…well…you will often kill your results quickly!

In my 8 years coaching dozens of 6 figure entrepreneurs and transforming them into 7 ( and 8 ) figure CEOs and business owners I’ve asked myself one question over and over and over again … 

“Why do some entrepreneurs seem to rocket to 7 and 8 figure success almost overnight while others struggle and suffer in 6 figure ‘Lifestyle businesses’ for years and years with no end in site?”

I’ve done a lot of thinking on this question and I can tell you right now . . . 

It’s not intelligence . . . most of the truly successful business owners I know will admit freely that they aren’t much smarter than anyone else (in fact, in my experience, being “too smart” can actual hamstring your growth) . . . 

It’s not drive or how many hours you work . . . in my coaching I’ve shown again and again that, if done right, taking time OFF from your business (and getting out of the way) can actually cause geometric business growth in very little time.

It’s not availability of funding or the economy . . . Money might be harder to find these days, but it’s still out there . . . and just like during the last “recession” the economy is going to create at least as many millionaires as it destroys.

And it’s not any of the dozens (or probably hundreds) of reasons and excuses I’ve heard from business owners over the years.

Nope, when you come down to it . . . 

There’s only one reason some business owners rocket to success while others sputter along . . . And that’s because the successful entrepreneurs built a solid business foundation that removes obstacles to success and promotes radical growth.

When You Establish this Solid Foundation, You’ll Suddenly Discover  . . . 

* Who to hire and how to hire them to make sure every aspect of your business is given the passion and attention it deserves . . . 

* How to communicate clearly and effectively . . . to set expectations and goals for a team in SECONDS and to keep communication breakdowns from ever being a problem . . .

  • How to instill passion in your team members and employees so that everyone truly cares about the success of the company and is motivated to reach for the highest profits and the best results possible.
  • How to make even “Big” decisions quickly and confidently . . . almost automatically picking the choice that will have the most profound impact on your business . . . 
  • Why “stepping out of your business” and working LESS is actually the key to phenomenal business growth . . . how to focus your attention and effort on those parts of your business where you can do the most good . . . and how to get out of the way of your team members so they can do what they can do best.

But most of all, you’ll discover how to bring in more sales and more profits while working less and while having a more powerful and more positive impact on the world around you.

Are You Ready To Transform Your Business And Establish A Foundation For Radical Growth?

At the CEO Factor retreat two weeks ago, I announced the creation of a special “7 Figure Mastermind” group specifically for current and future 7 figure entrepreneurs who want to experience Radical Growth in 2009.

When you started your business you probably just wanted to have control over your own life and do something you were good at. Maybe you had grand visions of creating an empire but you certainly didn’t know what you were really getting into, did you? Once you crossed the six-figure finish line you realized that most of what you envisioned has changed and you no longer have a clear picture of what’s next. You may even realize that all of the priorities and accomplishments that motivated you up to now are not necessarily as exciting anymore. You want to enjoy more of your life. You want to experience more passion and joy. And for some, it’s not even about the money anymore. You want to have meaning.

Now is the time to give your vision a tune up. When you implement The CEO Factor™ you will find it essential to create a vision that pulls you forward by aligning with the authentic leader inside. You will discover what it is like to lead from a place of effortlessness, fun and true power. When you refocus your day to day actions on the things you do best, you unleash more energy and creativity again. You may need to re-evaluate your work habits to ensure you are showing up as the leader. You probably need to learn how to lead a team vs. manage projects and deadlines. You may even need to re-discover your core strengths and passions. All this is do-able in a very short period of time when you stay true to The CEO Factor™.

Continue reading The CEO Factor™: Knowing When Your “Vision” Needs a Tune Up

Whether you are a fan of Oprah or not, you can’t deny that she is one savvy entrepreneur. If you know much about her story then you know that Oprah has always done her best to stay true to her passions and strengths. In order to create a billion-dollar empire that makes a difference in the lives of others, Oprah has to do what she does best. And not only does she outsource the rest, she gives up a lot of control by delegating ownership. It’s one thing to outsource a task to someone else but to truly be able to stay focused on what you do best you must give total ownership to someone who has the passion, strengths and competency to do it for you.

You may have also heard about Oprah’s school for girls in South Africa. During an interview, Oprah revealed that she had this vision for many years but it wasn’t until she had reached a point that she could build the right team and have access to the right resources that she was able to make it happen. She knew it was too big of a dream to do alone. That’s The CEO Factor™ in action – recognizing what foundation you need to build in order to achieve the biggest dream possible.

How will you realize that it is time to adapt the CEO Factor™? Is it when you are no longer enjoying your business and it’s eating up all of your time? Is it when you feel that you have more than enough on your plate?

Becoming the CEO (aka the Chief Entrepreneurial Officer) is basically a big fat permission slip to do more of what you do best…while creating new strategies to deal with the rest.
But, for most entrepreneurs a shift has to be made in order for that to happen.

Seven years ago when I started my business I felt like I was constantly running a rat race. I had entirely too much on my plate and I spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars trying to learn everything necessary to be successful in business. As I grew into a steady six figure income, as a result of diligently implementing leverage in every area of my business, I realized that this level of success brought with it a new challenge. It wasn’t that I was working ungodly hours and struggling to accomplish my goals anymore. It was what I was doing with my time that overwhelmed me. I wasn’t spending the majority of my time on the tasks I loved – I had become a manager in my own business! You might as well have put me back in a J.O.B.

Through working my own process and the ever-present guidance of my Virtual Team Building partner Shawn Driscoll, I began to see that I had become a bottleneck to my own growth. And I wasn’t alone. As I quickly implemented the strategies necessary to resolve this stagnation, I found that my clients, friends and colleagues were plagued by the very same symptoms – feeling like their business had become too much work due to their lack of awareness that THEY were the problem!

Have you ever found yourself focusing your attention on fixing things in your business — whether they are broken or not?

Leesa Barnes has. Leesa is a podcasting & social media expert and founder of Marketing Fit. Check out her minor dilemma on her video:

Leesa asks me about how to implement The CEO Factor in her business. She knows that to create a sustainable 6 & 7 figure business she must focus more on creating and less on fixing things. And I guess after her Virtual Assistant threatened to leave her, well, she’s willing to make a big change!  =-)

Do you find yourself doing the same thing? I can definitely relate to it.

It’s one of the ways that a well-meaning entrepreneur becomes the bottleneck to their growth. And this is just one of the many questions I’ll be answering on my upcoming call “The CEO Factor…How to Move Beyond the Bottleneck to Unleash Your 7 to 8 Figure Business.” www.theceofactorretreat.com/teleclass.

Plan to be there…I’m revealing something so revolutionary you don’t want to miss it. And you’ll have a giant reward for being there live too!

P.S. This isn’t like any other call that you can listen to later so I suggest you clear your schedule! There won’t be a recording.

I have been getting a lot of great comments and questions on The CEO Factor™, especially from people who seem to “know” what it is but when it really comes down to it have a hard time implementing the strategies, taking themselves out of the day to day tasks of running their business and taking the leap to grow their team so they are really poised to breakthrough the 7 figure mark this year.

But now I want to hear from you. I am putting together a teleclass and a 3 day live event on The CEO Factor™ and the more feedback I get from you, the CEO, the better they will be. So, will you take a few minutes to share with me either:
