Title: How To Shift From Working IN Your Business To Working ON Your Business
Date and Time: Tuesday, July 17, 2018
Presenter: Will Barfield, CEO of Barfield Revenue Consulting
Moderator: Eric Hobbs, CEO of Technology Associates

“I can’t step away.” – How many times have you secretly thought this to yourself? If this describes you, I’m guessing you:

  • Have a finger in every pie: You feel you have to be involved juuuuust a little bit in every department’s projects to make sure they’re doing it right.
  • Find yourself bringing on “good enough” staff to alleviate surface level solutions to deeper needs within your business. No, that new hire isn’t quite what you were looking for, but they’ll do for right now…or will they?
  • Always have to be “on” – even when you’re not at work, you’re at work. Anxiety and concerns from the office creep into your downtime with your family and friends.  You can never be fully away. Your greatest fear? Like Atlas, if you shrug, the weight of your business (and your whole world for that matter) are going to come crashing down on you.

What’s worse is that you know that if you go on in this way, the pace isn’t sustainable. You are likely to fail in multiple areas, including letting down your team, your clients, and even your family.
