Episode 163: 3 Ways All Successful Business Owners Learn to Step Away from Day to Day Operations
Show Notes

Hello everyone! Today is a new episode of Female Empowered and I will be discussing three ways how all successful business owners learn to step away from day-to-day operations.

Operation Christa Gets Hit By A Bus

This is something I have been focused on since 2016 and I named it “Operation Christa Gets Hit By A Bus.” The whole premise of this project was what would happen if I got hit by a bus and I couldn’t run the business anymore? What if I could not drive the bus anymore?

I wanted everything we did from that point on to be not tied to me. When I recognized that I needed to create a system that does not revolve around me, then I got my rear in gear and I started putting together this plan.

Now, I go into the studio probably less than 10 hours a week and that is because I want to. I come in to teach classes and treat patients during this time. For the most part, I run the studio from home.

I could go away for a month and my business would still continue to run.

Let’s talk about:     
·      Operation Christa gets hit by a bus
·      How I work on my business now
·      The easy thing: Getting other people to do your task
·      The more difficult thing to do: Letting go of the mindset that they don’t need you anymore
·      The three Ds: Delete, Delegate, Detach
·      What deleting is all about
·      What I recommend on what can you delete from your tasks
·      What delegating is all about
·      Ask yourself about the tasks that you need to do versus the tasks that other people can be responsible for and delegate them
·      What detaching is all about
·      Business owners have to detach from the outcome
·      If we want something done very specifically, we have to give specific instructions
·      Detaching is the most difficult thing to do
·      The importance of dialogue
·      If you want to grow, you have to learn how to step away from the day-to-day operations
·      I am not my business and my self-worth does not come from the business
