I recently had my trees trimmed and the whole experience taught me a vital lesson about my business. Growing your business can be likened to a growing tree. Over time it will branch out and its leaves will become thick, green and supple. However, unless it it pruned vital nutrients will continue to feed the whole tree.
What’s wrong with that?
Nothing, unless you want your tree, or in this case your business, to grow taller, stronger and produce more fruit. You see, everything that branches out from your business doesn’t grow your business. It just spreads you thin by forcing you to waste vital time, energy, and resources in areas that don’t serve you or your clients well.
Take a serious look at your business and determine what you need to cut and what you need to nurture and then go do it.
