“When you say, ‘Oh man, I don't like operations,’ what I'm really hearing is, ‘I'm good where I'm at, and I don't care about growing this thing…’ Because you will never, ever outgrow your own capacity. So, while it doesn't have the sexy name of sales, it is one of the things that actually continues to enable selling and growing the business the way that want.”
This week on the Experts Unleashed Podcast, I’m chatting with James Friel about the pillars of successful business, and the importance of systems. James is the creator of The Autopilot Entrepreneur, an absolute master of successful systems, and one of my favorite guys in the world. Too often, entrepreneurs fall prey to the misnomer that success is the finish line. However, success is the starting line. In order to maintain growth, and not be completely exhausted and chained to your business, you need to be able to gain leverage in all areas through effective systems.
“Systems give you liberation and turn your business into an income producing asset that works for you.”
The goal of systems is to give you all of the things you really want out of a business, and remove the stress, anxiety, and overwhelm that come from inefficiency. You don’t have to be an indentured servant to your business! In this episode we discuss the five pillars that must be in place to operate a successful business, the framework of the Autopilot Entrepreneur, systems as a gateway to more sales, and you’ll get to hear the most incredible sales story, maybe even the most incredible story, that we’ve ever heard on the podcast.
“I see systems as a gateway to more sales. So that's my real drive. I know when done properly, they free me up to be able to sell like I want. I'll be able to grow even more than if I was just manually doing everything all the time”
If you’re like most entrepreneurs, you might groan at the thought of putting systems into place. However, If you really love sales, and really love growing your business, you don’t have to be an expert as systems, but you do HAVE to put them in place. All of the pillars of your business need to work together, orchestrated like a well-oiled machine, for long-term, sustainable growth and success. Find out more on how to do this effectively on this week’s episode.
