Will Your Business Survive Without You?

Written by Kathy Gulrich

I had a health scare in December.

As it turns out, everything's perfectly okay. Butrepparttar possibility of things not being okay really knocked me for a loop.

Forrepparttar 145251 first time ... ever ... I thought about what would happen to my business if I suddenly weren't around to take care of it.

What an eye-opener!

Fact is, I'mrepparttar 145252 only person who really knows how things work in my business.

Several people - from my attorney to my coach to my book printer - know 'bits' of it. But there's really no one who knows enough about my business to step in, figure things out, and keep things moving without me.

And that was pretty scary to me. (Fortunately, it was scary enough to actually do something about it.)

Thought it would be helpful to share with you what's working for me....

1 - Put your business systems in writing

The good news: I know exactly how things work in my business.

The not-so-good news: I'mrepparttar 145253 only person who knows exactly how things work in my business.

Why is this a problem?

For starters, I'm heading out on vacation tomorrow. And I don't want to bring work with me! If I'mrepparttar 145254 only person who knows how to keep things moving, how is this possible?

It's clear I need some systems. So what needs to be in writing?

Ideally, practically everything. But you might want to start with something fairly easy. Say, how you 'process' new customers, or clients.

When someone decides to work with me as an Art Coach, here's what happens:

We make our first coaching appointment

I get credit or debit card authorization for payment of coaching fees

I send out a Welcome Pack, which includes: pocket folder/label, cover letter, business card, Policies & Procedures, Client Data Form, Client Checklist, Coaching Prep Form, and additional information about coaching

I use my 'KG Checklist' to check offrepparttar 145255 exact forms I send out; note date mailed/delivered

I prepare a client folder for my office: insert checklist, cover letter and all info/notes to date, write phone number on tab, write date of first coaching appointment (and all subsequent appointments) onrepparttar 145256 folder cover

I follow up and note whenrepparttar 145257 signed Policies & Procedures form is returned, and add it torepparttar 145258 client folder

I staplerepparttar 145259 completed Client Data Form torepparttar 145260 inside cover ofrepparttar 145261 client folder

As we work together, I add all relevant materials (correspondence, artwork samples, etc.) torepparttar 145262 folder

What's your 'system' or 'process' for prospects and new customers? Do you:

Capture all their contact information (name, address, phone, email, snail mail)?

Have you ever wondered why some Internet marketers seem to have success with every single project? Do they have some magical power that you don't?

Would you like to quickly get that power?

In a recent interview forrepparttar List Crusade program, T. Harv Eker revealed what he calledrepparttar 145250 Millionaire Mindset-which gives extremely successful Internet marketers and offline entrepreneurs what seems to be an "unfair advantage."

(Note: To access T. Harv Eker's complete audio interview for free, see end of article)

Harv isrepparttar 145251 author ofrepparttar 145252 best-selling book, SpeedWealth, as well as several highly-acclaimed courses such as The Millionaire Mind Intensive, Life Directions, Wizard Training and Trainrepparttar 145253 Trainer. He is alsorepparttar 145254 producer and trainer ofrepparttar 145255 world-famous Enlightened Warrior Training.

He went from zero to millionaire in only 2-1/2 years usingrepparttar 145256 Speed Wealth principles he teaches. He shows you how to instantly rid yourself of limiting beliefs that have stopped you from accumulating wealth inrepparttar 145257 past.

According to Harv, your subconscious mind may actually be holding you back fromrepparttar 145258 success you want in Internet marketing and in life.

The subsconscious is much more powerful than your conscious mind.

It's like an ice berg, most it is beneathrepparttar 145259 surface, and that's usually what sinks ships.

Ideas and misconceptions you formed as a child can affect your life right now. If you believe that money is evil or that money is hard to get, then your success will be limited. Even though you go throughrepparttar 145260 motions with your web page, email marketing and other marketing tasks, you'll always fall short on something that is critical to your success.
