Are you the one driving every initiative in your MSP?

You have ideas for growth but just never enough time to get the team involved and make them scalable?

If this is you, you probably feel like you’re stuck in the mud. 

Constantly having to drag your horse and cart out of one muddy mess only for it to drive into the next puddle if you’re not there to call the orders…without your constant help, the horse can’t progress further so you never have enough time to actually plan out the route ahead!

This is a common symptom of your MSP being ‘stuck’.

It’s absorbing all of your time and energy with none left to focus on what matters to grow your business.  Soon enough, this kind of multi-tasking management is going to leave you feeling frustrated, exhausted and stagnant. If you’re not already!

I’m often meeting MSP owners acting as a single director, doing everything and becoming stuck in the ‘Survive’ or ‘Drive’ stages of their business. They can’t progress because they’re literally the ‘drive’ behind everything. There’s no time left to focus on the future. Many MSP’s will coast along like this for years and only adopt change when they’re out of energy or planning retirement.

This long, hard road will have a detrimental impact on the long-term health of your business, your wallet and even in some cases your mojo. So, it’s vital that you implement workable changes as early as you can to give you the time to evolve your plans, get your team involved and make your business ideas scalable.

One possible remedy for being ‘stuck’ is to appoint different roles within the business – and even consider adding another director. With two or more directors, MSPs are able to push past ‘driving’ and into ‘thriving’ because you’re not the only driving force.

I understand that it’s not always simple to reconfigure roles and responsibilities in a business, especially where personal relationships are concerned. This is where it can be really helpful to have a coach to come and take away any personal elements or awkwardness and tackle issues with an unbiased, professional approach.
