Consciously or unconsciously, there are three desires every business owner strives for: They are time, money and significance.
Sadly, however, most find themselves at the whim of a never-ending flow of demands on the entrepreneurial journey. As a result, their businesses often never reach a place where they can untether themselves to enjoy the fruits of their labor.
Chuck Blakeman, author of the bestselling book Making Money is Killing Your Business: How To Build a Business You Love and Have a Life, Too, reminds his readers that the primary reason many people start a business is not to focus on making money at the exclusion of everything else. Rather it’s to build an enterprise that’s financially self-sustaining so that it aligns with one’s personal freedom and contributions in life.
Selected by the National Federation of Independent Business as its №1 Business Book of the Year, Blakeman provides a first-hand account of the stumbles and mistakes he’s made as a business owner. He delivers a practical, no-holds-barred set of ideas that are easy to comprehend and put into practice.
Formulating a Business Process and System
Blakeman is also a huge proponent of documenting your business systems, what he refers to as a “Process Map.” Instead of asking “How do I do this?”, he says the question should be “How do I do this for the last time?”
Ultimately, says Blakeman, those who determine how to do things for the last time and adopt an ongoing commitment to maximum productivity and efficiency in their work receive both time and money back from their enterprise. “No biggy,” he says — “it’s just your freedom and your life that is at stake.”
Below is a TEDx talk that Blakeman gave that underscores these themes as a part of the new Participation Age business model that he espouses.
