For business owners, especially small business owners, you pour your heart and soul into starting and growing your business.

The passion, the joys, the highs and lows, the toil, pain, tears, sweat and blood…

But one of the biggest struggles is the amount of time that goes into your business.

Here are the stats to prove it, and it’s scary!

More than 40% of business owners say they work between 60 and 80 hours.⠀

At least one in six work 80+ hours a week.

Over 40 percent of workers spend at least a quarter of their work week on manual, repetitive tasks.

Nearly 70 percent of workers say the biggest opportunity of automation lies in reducing time wasted on repetitive work.

Nearly 60 percent estimate they could save 6+ hours a week if these repetitive aspects of their jobs were automated.⠀

You juggle all the aspects of your business. Setting up. Marketing yourself. Finding work. Doing the work. Paying the bills. Communicating with suppliers and clients. Getting more clients. Growing your business. Training staff. Managing your team. The list goes on… forever! 

And then there’s life outside of work. Family. Friends. Exercise. Sleep. Rest. Fun. Me time… Normal life!

Of course work and life don’t need to be mutually exclusive, but it all takes time. What are you dedicating your best time to doing?

If you could save yourself one night a week, or one day a week, the gains are obvious. More time with loved ones. More time to sleep. More time for you. More time for more rewarding activities.

There are lots of ways to save you time by improving your systems and streamlining the way your team can work together.

We can show you how you can win back your valuable time. It is the most important commodity in work (and in life) that you have.
