Do you know what separates great achievers from everyone else? It’s not a secret—they simply kept going, day after day. They did the dull and boring work, putting one foot in front of the other, day in and day out to get to where they are today. So when you close your computer and decide that’s it for the day, just know that those top achievers made a dozen more phone calls before they called it quits. People who succeed spend hours planning and preparing for the day or week ahead instead of giving up and playing games on their phone or checking Facebook.

You simply have to outwork your competition.

You’ve got to be smarter and more strategic.

Outworking does not mean to keep doing the same things that you’ve done year in and year out but to spend more time doing them. Outworking means thinking bigger and getting help when you need it. Outworking can mean to end up working smarter and fewer hours if you achieve the proper strategy. Here are two ways that you can be smarter and more strategic.

Outsource your training

If you struggle to charge what you’re worth because your new staff members are slow and inconsistent when they clean, this program is for you. Customers will notice inconsistencies in your cleaning if your staff all have various methods of cleaning. With proper training, you create consistency and keep clients happy. This way if your star cleaner is out sick or quits on you, your client will not notice because their replacement will be just as good. Bottom line: You’ve got to train your trainer. Nail down your training program with this DVD chock full of tools and information.

Learn how to turn marketing into a system so that your business can thrive and grow even when you’re no longer clocking in every day. The success is in the system.
