This was a very exciting episode as we get to talk to our very dear friend Melanie Benson Strick about Optimizing Your Business.
Melanie Benson Strick, known as America’s Leading Small Business Optimizer, has a gift for guiding fast-paced, overwhelmed, driven entrepreneurs to thrive in their small business. With over 13 years mentoring thought leaders and creative entrepreneurs, Melanie is a revenue strategist – uncovering costly breakdowns and de-railers while re-energizing profits– ultimately freeing the entrepreneur to do more of what they do best.In this podcast we cover a whole range of business aspects and really get down to the nitty gritty of why entreprenuers and solo business people struggle with the day to day operations of running a business. Melanie discusses how to escape the quogmire of overwhelm and why the most profitable and viable ideas in your business need to be leveraged.We also discuss in depth why entrepreneurs get stuck and how they can get out of the overwhelm trap and how to really shift gears to become profitable.
There are 3 phases that an entreprenuer usually goes through in their cycle1. The Striving Phase- This is where the entrepreneur gets little traction in their business and there seems to be lots of activity for little or no result2. Driving Phase- This is where the entrepreneur works harder and spends more time doing but is in too much overwhelm still3. Thriving stage- This Phase happens when the Striving and Driving phase has been released and then you start to learn hwo to leverage your effectiveness to get exponential results.
