John Bowen’s Six Drivers of Success

1. Nailing It

Providing an unprecedented customer experience.

2. Scaling It Up

Set up a steady stream of clients. Find out who the gatekeepers are that can refer you. Set up one of the following arrangements:

  • Revenue share
  • Joint business development
  • Curating ideas / best practice

Offer free services.

3. Organize It

Put systems in place so that the above two processes become repeatable. If you leave for 90 days and you come back and your business is running better than before you left, you have a great business! Clients look for the following from your business:

  • Character
  • Chemistry
  • Caring (empathy)
  • Competency
  • Cost-effectiveness (value)
  • Consultative

4. Monetize It

Many business owners only focus on their top-line. But there is a difference between revenue and profitability. You have to design your business to take care of yourself first so that you can serve your clients.

5. Create It

Build your personal wealth. Ensure that you have liquidity and are able to take care of your family / contribute to the causes that you care about.

6. Live It

Constantly remind yourself of the vision of your business.

“One of the most important things we, as business owners, can do is say ‘no’.”

Stay focused on the life you want and build your business around that.
