Mistake 6. Fire fighting
Bestselling business author Sam Carpenter describes a time in his business life where he was playing the equivalent of the seaside carnival game called Whack a Mole. You know when the little moles rapidly pop up out of the holes and you’re job is to hit all of them with a hammer! (I know its not PC but …).
That’s business life for a lot of my prospective clients and mostly those with amazing businesses.
I had a client turning over £7M pa but he had not time to think. There was always someone darkening his doorway with another problem for him to resolve.
Tip: Look if life is like that I don’t care what your top line is – you need a coach.
