You may have heard the term working “on” vs working “in” your business but what exactly does this mean? UHY Manager, Len Kumar explains the difference between working in your business and working on your business, and how this is the first step to building a better business.
Working ON your business does NOT mean scheduling work, processing the accounts, answering phone calls, submitting a quote or helping your employees do a job, these tasks are important but they’re just ‘business as usual tasks’.
Working ON your business involves thinking about the future, planning, reviewing & improving current processes and systems and asking questions like how can we do things more efficiently and effectively.
“Working on your business is about setting clear expectations and standards, and delivering the goods each and every time.”
You build a better business by working ON it, but finding the time to work on building a better business is a major challenge faced by most small to medium sized business owners.Details
