    Lock Yourself Up

    In my management seminars I tell attendees: "Lock yourself away periodically and do the 'owner things' you need to run your business effectively".
    These sessions should be scheduled into your weekly activity and EVERYONE should know there are to be NO INTERRUPTIONS--no phone calls, no quick questions--nothing.
    What can you do in this time?
    1. Analyze financial statements
    2. Plan your advertising budget
    3. Work up and review your marketing calendar
    4. Review company reports
    5. Ponder a new product line or service
     In upcoming issues, we're going to explore different facets of this list and more! Investing in time for yourself without interruptions will pay big dividends.
    ACTION ITEM: Schedule your time to lock yourself away--THIS WEEK. Look over your last P&L and especially look at expenses. What can you start changing? Think about some other areas in which you face challenges in your business and make a list. Email your list to me if you want to discuss it!
