Many businesses are caught in a survival trap and may not even recognize the fact. The owner has become so accustomed to constantly dealing with minor issues time and time and time again that it just seems normal. But, this is not the norm for a successful and growing business. So, how can you get out of the business survival trap? The first step to solving this problem may simply be to recognize that something needs to change and that you need the help of a Fix This Next coach to help sort things out.

At Exigo Business Solutions we are certified coaches for Fix This Next. This approach was developed specifically to track down and fix the basic or core business issues that routinely result in hidden costs, slow your growth, leach away profits, and rob you of your time. How does this work?

How Can You Get Out of the Business Survival Trap?

What is the key to the Fix This Next approach and extricating yourself and your business from the deluge of minor issues that soak up your time and effort? It is to recognize the business hierarchy of needs. These are sales, profit, order, impact, and legacy. Using this recognition as a guide, you will look to the core issues within sales and profit before considering other problems higher up the list. The fact is that minor issues as the foundation of your business will continually cause “static” and emerge as minor problems. Unfortunately, these problems are too often deal with as stand-alone issues and never really fixed. Thus, they re-emerge time and time again to plague you or lie in the shadows soaking up time, energy, and profits. Fix This Next coaches like Exigo Business Solutions can apply years of business and accounting experience as well their Fix This Next training to identify you nagging business problems.

Resolving Problems and Maintaining the Solutions

Once your Fix This Next coach has helped you discover the core issue at the root of many other issues, the task is to fix it and keep it fixed. This requires attention to the “order” level of your business hierarchy of needs. You will institute effective business processes to track nagging business issues and be able to jump on them if and when any problems re-emerge. Fix This Next does not stop with finding a problem and suggesting a solution. This system drives business efficiency, improving cash flow, making profits reliable, creating efficient business systems, and as the ultimate goal, transforming your business to create a lasting impact and a permanent presence in your business niche and community.
