Are you at a manic pace running your small business?

It’s our goal at Synergy to take manic small business owners and turn them into magic-makers. It’s the “magic” that you wanted to create when you first opened your small business that you’re probably missing. You wanted to succeed, have balance in your life, and find your true purpose, right? If you’re reading this than you probably know that there’s a tool or technique that might help you get back to the feelings you had when you started your business.

Do not let another month go by without finding out how Synergy can help you, like it has so many others, to not only grow their business but find their purpose and balance they were seeking.

Some of our business owners saw a 35% increase in 2010 in net profit! That’s money is on the bottom line, where it matters.

When you Start With Why everything else will fall into place

Start With Why was recommended to me twice in two days which is usually my cue to buy it and read it right away.  It brought clear some concepts I have been working on for over a year and a half.  If you own a business you probably started with a WHY that was really powerful for you.  Your WHY could have been to help a certain group of people that you thought were being underserved in the marketplace.  Maybe your WHY had everything to do with a passion you had to improve people’s lives through what you offered or were going to teach people.  Whatever your WHY, it was clear to me that we all, in the day to day grind of running a business, forget our WHY’s sometimes and it’s important to not only be clear about them, but to also remind ourselves of them consistently.  Your WHY is the one gift you’ve been given and will share with your customers and employees.  Your WHY is the reason you opened your business in the first place.  Your WHY will make every decision you have to make easier.  It is your filter for what won’t work for your business.

Remember, embrace, and let your WHY steer you towards the level of success you want to achieve.
