When you simplify your business model, you free up more time to create real value for your customers. That's when everyone wins.

Every business needs to make sales. But what do you do if you don't like "selling"? James Wedmore didn't (and still doesn't). In fact, one of the things that made him anxious was constantly thinking about what he had to sell that month just to keep the business going. So what did he do about it? He started with a powerful question, "What can I do to create consistency and stability in the business?"

In this short 3 minute case study, you'll hear what he did and you'll hear about the solution he created that has been producing a consistent $35,000 - $50,000 income per month... for the last 4 years! So if you don't like selling, check this out.

In this video I talk about the concept of Hustle & Business. Today people have the ideology that when it comes to business you need to "Hustle" everyday working crazy hours and sacrificing what you love in order to succeed. Let me know if you agree in the comments below.

I didn’t start my business to work 18 hour days. I started my business so that I would have time for the people and things that matter… and I’ve designed my business accordingly. There are many ways to succeed. But it all starts by first getting clear on “why” you started your business in the first place.

This is the process my wife and I go through every year to make the next 12 months our best year ever.

Do you have a planning ritual?

What kinds of things do you do at the beginning of each year?

I Decided To Sell My Business

This was easily the hardest decision I've ever made.  But after years and years of growing a business that I love, with a team that I love, I've decided to sell my interests.

Why would I sell if the business is doing well and I love the people I work with?

I outline my four reasons in this post.

I gotta admit, when I got a text from my wife at 4:02am this morning I thought something had happened.

She's in India right now and we usually don't chat until later in the morning because of the time zone difference.  But as it turns out, everything was ok and she was just very excited about her new business idea.

Then of course, I couldn't get back to sleep either because my mind was racing with ideas for her new venture.  

But here's what I will tell you...

This idea has been a LONG time coming.  But after seeing what's happened during her trip and the impact it's had on her clarity, I'm going to be more intentional about following the steps outlined in my latest blog post.

What do you do when you need to get clear about an idea or project?
