“The word ‘hopeless’ characterised how I felt about my business and my role in it. When offered the chance to attend a workshop run by Glenis I thought there might be something there that could help drive positive change. I wasn’t prepared for the light bulb effect that occurred when talking about a key ‘The Focus’. I realised I was simply wasting too much time, which robbed me of the chance to work on the business. I was spending too much time looking for things that I needed to do in the business.
I identified the two things that most impacted my time were a messy work environment and lack of an ordered filing system. So, I created a storage system for my office that forced me to order everything and clean up my messy office. As a result, I gained about 10 hours per week – time that I would have spent “looking for things’ and I now use this time to work on and in the business with measurable results thus far. For example, I’ve had time to investigate a problem with our invoicing system that wasn’t charging gst on the parts we had sold. This represented significant lost revenue. Having rectified the problem and without worker any harder I estimate we’ll add an extra $20,000 to our net profit in the next 6 months.
I don’t feel stressed when required to do something under pressure now, I know where everything is and this allows me to work faster and more efficiently.
Thank you Glenis, you have changed our business and our life.”
