TBL: 013 – Are you a proactive or reactive business professional?

The Business Life podcast - Where success is a lifestyle, not a measurement.

The Business Life podcast episode #013 - Are you a proactive or reactive business professional?A story of two successful business owners: Drew and Jim.

Both run great companies, but Drew’s business seems to operate just a little smoother. Business appears to be simpler for Drew and he tends have very few problems, less stress and his clients are happy. Drew devotes a lot of time to improving and growing his business, but also manages to balance it with his lifestyle.

Jim also has very happy clients too, but often gets overwhelmed with the every day grind. He finds himself spending most of his days taking care of urgent tasks and emergencies. Jim’s stress level is apparent and he doesn’t seem to find much time to work on the things he’d like or enjoy his lifestyle.

Which one of these stories sound like you? In today’s episode, I’m talking about the benefits of being a proactive business professional (like Drew) vs. a reactive business professional (like Jim). If you’re going to build a good business, don’t you want it to be one that doesn’t suck the life out of you? Take a listen at how you can make that shift to become more proactive in your business!
