Running Your Small Business from a Distance

Running into problems is an issue small business owners constantly deal with. Across the board these issues remain pretty consistent regardless of the line of business they are working in. Hiring trustworthy and hard working staff members is one of the top issues. If they cannot find high quality staff to work with they will find that the result mean they will end up spending much more time at their business than imagined. This leads to the work-life balance being completely ruined for them.

How to Succeed as a Small Business Owner and Still Have a Life is a book that focuses on restoring the work-life balance for over extended business owners. If you cannot enjoy some quality time away from your business then there is no joy in having one that is successful. Your small business isn't meant to eliminate your personal life, but should help to make it more enjoyable than it was before. Making sure that your life thrives away from your small business was the reason that Bill Collier wrote this particular book.

Running a successful business while enjoying time away from it will only be possible with a staff that is the major tool of your business. Developing a business plan with your staff as the center piece is one thing Collier focuses on. Making sure they are successful really directly relates to the values that you can provide to them. If you instill values in them that they believe in, this will help to guide them even when you can’t be there with them. The ultimate goal of small business owners should be here.

20 chapters centering around goals are written by Collier. He will guide you on setting these goals, planning accordingly to help achieve them, and to execute the plans you come up with. This three step process should provide you with a great base for success. Success will be determined by how well you can run this business without the absolute necessity of your attendance. Soon you will be able to take time away without worrying every moment.
