BNI Elevate is a networking community organized to help our members make more money through structured collaboration and referrals.
As business owners and top professional alpha dogs, we think we can do it all, and maybe we can. But the bigger question is … should we?
If we want to be truly successful, we have to declare our independence and get rid of the things we do in business that are of secondary importance and/or suck the energy out of us.
That way we can focus on the things we enjoy doing and the things that can generate more revenue.
For example, if you’re a lawyer and you spend hours every week on your accounting, paying bills and chasing clients for payment, maybe a smart move would be to hire our bookkeeper extraordinaire, Dianna O’Doherty, to do these things for you.
That would allow you to convert your accounting time into billable hours working for your clients.
Or maybe, you can convert your accounting time into more sales, marketing and networking time and that will result in more clients being retained and more money in your pocket.
So think about things you do in business every week that eat up precious billable hours and suck the energy out of you; and if you do less of those, I guarantee that you’ll make more money!
