When you created your business did you dream of having time freedom and traveling the world, or did you dream of building a large team and changing the world, or maybe something different? How does what you do today support that long-term vision?
It’s really important to start with the end in mind when defining or reimagining your business model. Because over time our business model can fall out of alignment.
You may start with your business model in alignment but over time, as you say yes to new opportunities, and as the business begins to take on a life of its own, it can quickly become misaligned, which leads entrepreneurs to burnout and questioning why they started in the first place.
In Episode 32 of the Lean Out Your Business Podcast, I take you behind the scenes of my recent Simplify to Scale Workshop and share one of the activities we did around reimagining an aligned business model that matches your lifestyle and business vision.
In today’s episode, you'll learn:
- Why you should begin with the end in mind
- Two very different business models and why your response might be a good indicator of what business model is best for you
- The beauty and curse of entrepreneurship
- The importance of alignment
