The difference between working-in your business versus working-on your business is a, bold, fine line. Small business owners, typically, work-in their business rather than working-on their business. Have you ever said the words, “I can’t go and network, because I have too much work to do?” What is the difference between working-in and working-on your business? In one word, results.

Do you want to build a business system, that will get you off the small business hamster wheel? This is a great question to ask yourself. It takes a different type of thinking to work-on your business rather than work-in your business. Here are a few tips that will help you work-on your business.

1. Don’t just work-in your business. Stop it! Get-off the small business hamster wheel.
2. Delegate the workload, so you can spend time working-on your business.
3. Evaluate your business model and make adjustments that will improve revenue sustainability.
4. Schedule time to take steps toward building your business every day.
5. Stop saying, I can’t do… and start saying, I will do… and grow your business.

The difference between working-in your business versus working-on your business is the difference between being a hamster or a Chief Executive Officer. What are your results?
