The First Step to Creating a Business That Works Without You

Do you often feel trapped in your business?

Would you like to spend less time on it and free up your time?

You’re not alone… you see most business owners went into business to have more freedom… to make more money and have more time off.

But instead, they end up getting stuck in their business with everything depending on them.

Want to know the key to escaping this cycle? Creating a business that doesn’t depend on you.

And it all begins with taking the first step…

1) Creating an Organisation Chart

Creating a business that works without you is all about replacing yourself in different parts of your business. So the best place to start with this is to create an organisation chart. Think of it as your business roadmap. Identify the various positions – sales, supervisor, delivery, owner, bookkeeper – and acknowledge that you’re often the one wearing all these hats. By mapping out your organisation chart, you can strategise how to delegate to your existing team or gradually replace yourself through hiring.

We recommend creating three organisation charts – one for the current state, another for the business in 12 months, and the last for your end goal. This strategic approach allows you to focus on replacing yourself in stages, making the process deliberate and achievable.

2) Define Responsibilities

Once your organisation chart is in place, the next step is to work out the responsibilities of each position. This clarity enables you to understand what each role entails, helping you transition from a business that relies on individuals to one that depends on positions. The aim? To free your business from depending solely on you.

3) Create Daily Weekly Monthly Checklists

Your next step is to take the responsibilities you’ve defined and work out which ones are done daily, weekly, and monthly. Turn these into checklists for each position. By categorising tasks by frequency, it helps you prioritise which systems should be implemented first. Start by creating the daily systems for the particular role you want to get off your plate. That way you are going to free up your time sooner. Keep doing creating systems this way and the time you free up will compound. You can then re-invest your time in creating more systems, in training more people and ultimately replacing yourself in your business.

Your journey towards creating a business that thrives without your constant presence begins with a crucial first step – creating your organisation chart.
