Episode 944 – How to Transition from Cleaner to Owner Successfully
Transitioning from a cleaner to an owner is a significant milestone for many business owners. However, it can be challenging to make the shift and get stuck in the process. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the common no-no’s that keep many business owners stuck in the office or cleaning and how to overcome them.
In a recent podcast episode, Mike Campion interviewed Lindsay Bjorklund, the GMCC Client Success Manager, who spends most of her time with team members in a non-direct coaching way. Lindsay has a unique perspective on what keeps business owners stuck, and her insights can help others make a successful transition from cleaner to owner.
One of the most significant issues Lindsay has observed is the “I’m the only one who can do it perfectly” mindset. Many business owners believe that they’re the only ones who can clean or run payroll in a particular way. They think that if they delegate tasks to someone else, it won’t be done to their standards. This mindset keeps them stuck in the field or the office and prevents them from growing their business. To overcome this no-no, business owners need to realize that their business can’t grow if they don’t delegate tasks and responsibilities. They need to train their employees and trust them to do the job.
Another related issue that keeps business owners stuck is a lack of trust in their employees. Many business owners are afraid to hire virtual assistants or outsource tasks to other people because they don’t trust them to do the job correctly. However, this lack of trust is another manifestation of the “I’m the only one who can do it perfectly” mindset. To overcome this no-no, business owners need to trust their employees and give them the support they need to do their jobs correctly.
In conclusion, transitioning from a cleaner to an owner can be challenging, but with the right mindset and support, it’s possible to make the shift successfully. Business owners need to realize that they can’t do everything themselves and that delegating tasks and responsibilities is critical to their success. They need to train their employees, trust them, and provide them with the support they need to do their jobs correctly. With these strategies, business owners can transition from a cleaner to an owner successfully and grow their businesses.
