How to Take Back Your Time and Still Grow Your Business

If you’re a high-achieving CEO or visionary, you likely find yourself stuck in the day-to-day operations of your business. You may feel like you’re always working and never have enough time to do the things that you really want to do. You and I both know that’s not your zone of genius and, I’m willing to bet it also causes you to dread the day ahead vs. looking forward with excitement. Being bogged down with day-to-day tasks as a CEO has you filling multiple roles in your business- – except the one of visionary and leader. I partner with many high-achieving visionaries and, after looking at all of the case studies I’m convinced:

A Certified Director of Operations (DOO) can help you get your time back, grow your business, and help prevent burnout. Let’s break down exactly how that works.

What is a DOO?

First, we have to answer the question- – what is a DOO? A DOO is an executive who has been trained to handle all aspects of running a business, from day-to-day operations to long-term strategic planning. They are highly trained professionals who have expertise in various areas such as marketing, finance, customer service, HR, and… I could go on. 

They also have extensive experience in business management and leadership skills. Their goal is to ensure that every aspect of your business is operating efficiently and effectively so that it can reach its full potential. As DOOs, we become your partner, right arm, and accountability to your vision and boundaries.

How Does a DOO Help? 

The primary role of a Director of Operations is to free up your time so that you can focus on growing your business rather than dealing with its daily operations. We help you strategically plan your growth goals around your vision and we ensure that the needle keeps moving forward toward your yearly objectives. Essentially, we are the keeper of your vision and the support for the visionary. 

A DOO can manage tasks such as managing teams, creating timelines for projects, hiring new staff members, creating marketing plans, setting budgets, and project management. By delegating these tasks to a DOO you can focus on honing the strategies to grow your business rather than getting bogged down in the details of its day-to-day operations. 

A DOO will also be able to identify areas where improvements need to be made and implement changes that will benefit the company in both the short and long term. By creating systems and processes that streamline operations, they can reduce costs while increasing efficiency, leading to greater profitability for the company and better customer satisfaction. Additionally, since they are well-versed in various areas such as finance, marketing and HR they are able to provide valuable insights into how best to approach certain issues or capitalize on opportunities within those fields.  

It goes without saying but, having a DOO on board will also help prevent burnout by providing support when things become overwhelming or difficult so that you don’t become overwhelmed or exhausted by trying to take on too much at once. 

A Certified Director of Operations is an invaluable asset for any ambitious CEO or visionary who wants their business to succeed without becoming overwhelmed with daily tasks or burning out from attempting too much at once. 

Not only do they free up your time but they also improve efficiency and profitability by identifying areas where improvements need to be made while providing insights into various aspects of running a successful business; from finance & marketing strategies all the way through customer service & HR support. 

So if you’re feeling stuck in the day-to-day operations of your business or like you’re working too much then look no further than hiring a Certified Director of Operations! You’ll be glad you did!
