This is the fourth and final post in our series, How to Build a Business That Doesn't Depend on You. You can read the first post here, the second here, and the third here.
Okay—let’s say you’ve taken all the necessary steps to build a self-sustaining business.
You’ve made a clear decision to do it, and you’ve let your desire build.
You’ve let go of unproductive beliefs and are thinking like an Entrepreneur. You’ve come to see your business as a process designed to produce a desired result without you.
You’ve envisioned a business that doesn’t depend on your personal production, and you’ve written your vision down. You’ve imagined a culture where your employees are committed to your picture of the future and share your view of what really matters on the way there.
You’ve freed up your time to work on your business, not just in it. You’ve built systems in every area of your business that stand for what you believe in, and you’ve continuously improved them until they generate consistent, predictable results. You’ve set standards that everyone on your team lives by.
In other words, you’ve created a world of your own that can operate without you.
It’s an incredible accomplishment...but are you done?
