Are you working too many hours?

If you’re finding you’re working too many hours a week in a business that wouldn’t survive without your constant input, then let us help you create a better lifestyle, and build business systems that ideally run without you being involved.

We’ll look at how you’re setting priorities and show you how you can be working smarter, not harder, by streamlining some of your processes. This will help you to step back from jobs, so you can focus more on the things that are important.

“It was all going well but I was juggling too many balls, and finding that the success of the business was actually taking me down. Gaylene has really helped me prioritise my tasks, and analyse where I can make more profit in the business.

I was working every hour that God sends and extra hours as well. Now I’m having most Wednesdays off, and cut down my weekend work. I’m making more money and spending less, and have increased our profit by tens of thousands of dollars potentially a year. I feel more confident in myself and the decisions that I’m making, and more confident to leave my business to run itself.”
