A fast growing business can sometimes experience costly breakdowns and unconscious bottlenecks. It happens to every entrepreneur that tries to grow to the next level of success the same way you got to this level.
In this week’s podcast episode I’ll introduce you to the most common growth bottlenecks and how to avoid them so they don’t slow down your progress.
1:24 I talk about what growth bottlenecks are and why you can’t see the cost or impact they have on your goals.
3:00 The first bottleneck is a hard one to see for yourself, and I talk about the signs that you might be trying to grow your business to the next level with outdated methods. I also debunk a common growth myth that can lead to imploding your business.
8:02 The second bottleneck is having a struggle mindset, but how it affects your business isn’t obvious. Using your logic mind can actually keep you broke and struggling but there’s a mindset shift that can help you make excellent growth investment decisions.
12:03 I tackle the single biggest thought that kills your future success. It’s rooted in your logic mind and you’ll want to know how to flip this limited mindset quickly.
12:57 Bottleneck three is rooted in your creativity – and you’ll find that your compulsive need to create more and more stuff could be working against your profitability and ability to lead your business into greater impact.
14:14 The next bottleneck comes down to how well you delegate. Often a leader can convince themselves that it’s cheaper or easier to do it yourself. Listen in for crucial advice on how to avoid this costly growth pitfall.
16:18 Another way that bottleneck four surfaces is when you let yourself stay stuck in the weeds solving problems or figuring out how to get everything done.
17:50 The two ways to shift out of bottlenecks to accelerate growth lies in two fundamental actions: a clear bold vision and a decision.
20:00 I share the story of how the founders of InfusionSoft have grown as leaders every time their business expanded.
