It can’t keep going like this!
You hustle to get more work (‘cause you NEED more work).
But when the work comes in, too much of it falls on you!
Yes, there’s a team, but it takes more time to get them to do the kick-off and set up the billing, and schedule the status calls…then it does just to do it yourself.
That’s why you are alone here every night and most Saturdays.
You think about what your spouse asked last month while staring at the bank balance, “If you’re working so hard, why are we barely making ends meet?”
It’s a good question.
There’s got to be some secret, some code to crack that will make this whole thing work! Other business owners don’t seem to be working like this; they seem to be driving beautiful cars and going on vacation.
Nobody tells you that starting a business will be this miserable. You needed freedom; you wanted to make it on your own. Nothing about this feels like “freedom.”
Still, the idea of going back to a “real” job turns your stomach. Yes, you daydream about it (PAID vacation and FREE healthcare?!?), but you don’t do it. You can’t. You won’t.
So what do you do? You can’t quit, and you can’t keep going like this.
Sounds like it’s time for a change.
Our clients started just where you are today. They were overwhelmed, burnt out, and not quite broke — but getting there! But today they are running firms with 20, 30, even 50 employees. They have more time off than they ever had when they worked for someone else. They’re making good money too.
But best of all they are building a team that is doing the work of the agency better than they ever did alone. People are growing careers, getting to do what they are great at, and clients are enjoying superior results too.
It didn’t happen right away, it took time and hard work, but these founders learned to attract better clients, who pay more. They’ve found a way to hire more experienced and capable team members. They do fewer things for a narrower range of clients but get paid better for it. Best of all, they found freedom again.
