Hi Everyone, Carl Gould here, I am your #70secondCEO and the author of The 7 Stage Growth Method. Just a little bit more than a one minute investment each day for a lifetime of results.
We are ranking your business on the 7 Stage Growth model OK? Stage 6, give yourself a ranking on a scale of 1 to 10. This is the Stage of Salability. Remember way back to Stage 3 when you’re building your implementation team? Now you’re building your management team, OK? You need to have in place a consistent resource for a lead generator:
- Your chief marketing or lead generation officer
- Your VP of sales
- Your director of operations who handles all things fulfillment
At a minimum, that’s got to be your management team. To what degree do you have those three in place and they are running the day-to-day operations so you don’t have to be there and you can start to maximize the salability of your business? Also, you need to be cash flow positive on a monthly basis and have enough buying power to take advantage of an opportunity should it present itself. Give yourself a rank. Huh? That’s a 1, 10, NAILED IT!
Alright, my name is Carl Gould and this has been your #70secondCEO.
