Now that sounds kind of funny to say SIX ATES, but you’ll get it here in a second. The first three are the ones that you most commonly hear, and I’m going to share them with you right now. So here they are: Automate, Delegate, Eliminate. There’s the three. I’ll give you the other three here in a moment. So these are the most common ones. You also might hear a delegate, automate, eliminate. But whichever way you hear it, it’s the idea of, okay, well number one:
Delegate. Let’s look at that. If we’re going to delegate something it means that we’ve identified that it’s not something we need to do. A lot of business owners do things that they’re below their pay grade. So they might be doing administrative tasks, they might be running for the mail, or they might be doing things that aren’t the best use of their time. There are things that they can do for the company that will auto-generate more money for the company, and so when we look at what we can delegate, we want to go through a delegation process of identifying what we do in our day-to-day. And then after that we want to take those things and say ‘okay, well hey, do I like doing this, do I not like doing it, but should I be doing this?’. As they do that they can begin to create a delegation plan. Now if you want more information about this reach out to me I’d be happy to give you a free complimentary coaching session, just to, like dig into this a little bit. It’s pretty complicated but once you get it, it’s really easy and I can teach you how to delegate.
Now also with delegation, maybe you want to employ a new person to help you with that delegation. What I’ve done is I have a team of people in the Philippines, and they do a whole bunch of work for me. They’re a huge help. I value them very greatly, but they allow me to delegate things that otherwise I might not be able to do. For example, some business owners might not be able to afford somebody locally, but abroad they can. In my case, I can afford people locally, but I want to be able to support people abroad. I want to help people in other countries that might not have an opportunity for a job like we do here. And so my way of delegating is to give to my overseas team, and they do amazing. If you ever want to meet any of them or learn more about that, I’m happy to share that with you too. So now, we have Delegate. Automate is next.
Automate is where we’re taking something that we’re going to create and have it happen over and over and over without us ever having to touch it. Some great tools to help you with this are online automation systems. Inbound marketing, the email marketing that you can do through inbound marketing is a great way to do that through maybe HubSpot or Infusionsoft or something like that. But then also, there are other ways to do it too like for example Zapier. I use Zapier to automate moving, like when I add a contact to my contacts it automatically puts them in QuickBooks. That saves me the time of double-entry. Automation gets rid of double-entry, any kind of remedial tasks that you have to do over and over and over. Figure out how to automate that or delegate it. Okay, so Automate, Delegate, Eliminate is the final one.
Eliminate is, what are we doing that we shouldn’t be doing? And a good way to tell if you’re doing something you shouldn’t be doing is to say, ‘do I feel like I should be doing this?’ Do you ‘should’ all over yourself? I think Tony Robbins says that. So when we look at the things that we’re doing in our day-to-day, we want to identify — ‘okay, is this something that I really should be doing?’. Going back to the delegate, when we make that list of things that we do on a monthly, daily, weekly, or hourly basis, those things we can look at real quick and say, ‘do these help the business?’. Statistically, it is proven that 20% of what you do generates 80% of the results in your business. So okay, now how could we shrink that, all that stuff down to that we can do more of the 20 to have better results in our business than doing all this 80 percent of the stuff that doesn’t do anything for us. Okay, so automate, delegate, eliminate.

Sales results are the fastest way to turn around cash flow in your life and in your business. Too often sales people don’t know the key behaviors that they need to track in order to create the success they are after. There are two key areas that are crucial to sales success.
True sales results create more time and freedom in your life. As you track your sales behaviors, you will see momentum and your productivity increase. As your productivity ur pipeline will fill up.
Most business owners don’t know where their marketing dollars go. They don’t track the numbers. Sometimes it’s because they don’t have time, sometimes they just don’t know which numbers are crucial for their marketing success. We build a tool that contains the marketing metrics that are crucial for you and we track the results. After we have begun to track our results, we modify our strategies and tactics to match what marketing vehicles are the most successful. Your marketing should generate business for you. Through coaching, focus groups, customer surveys and employee questionnaires, we can assess where your brand is, where it should be compared to your competitors and your plan of action to get there.
What is that one thing keeping you from going to the next level in your life? Do you know what it is? Most people don’t. They have tunnel vision. They don’t have clarity of the big picture. They don’t know what their life calling is. They know they want to leave a legacy that spans many decades of time, but they don’t know what they could do that would actually achieve this. All of these things keep us from our true destiny. In life coaching we look at the behavioral, emotional, mental and physical elements that are keeping you from going to the next level. We help you see your greatest faults, your biggest strengths and how you can leverage them to create momentum. Life coaching can create massive change in short periods of time and can sustain it through ongoing accountability.
