Every entrepreneur hopes to one day sell their company for a multiple of 10 to 20x times or more. But unfortunately, selling for a huge price is less frequent than any entrepreneur would want. It’s indeed achievable, but still an exception

What then is the key to getting your business to sell more? What factors contribute to a company’s success at that level?

Well, the key to success is by creating systems and processes that allow the company to function effectively even without the founder. 

If the business depends heavily on the manager, the multiples will be pitiful when the time comes to sell. However, if the company is self-sufficient, the return might be exponential. 

This tactic has the added benefit of giving you more freedom prior to selling the company. You get to work in your creative zone while taking time off for recreation and family guilt-free. 

Here are five steps to starting a self-running business and selling more.

1. Vision Planning 

Consider the end when starting. The crucial first stage is creating a clear vision of your long-term objectives, both personal and professional. In addition to that, consider the basic principles of your organization. You can then divide your goals into monthly and annual goals. 

Founders who have more business than they can handle and spend the majority of their time putting out fires should put extra emphasis on setting goals and considering their beliefs. 

2. Identify and Monitor 

Gain complete clarity into your company’s major issues, challenges, and success factors. Make adjustments as needed. This step typically calls for the impartial viewpoint of an experienced outsider. 

3. Process Center 

The absence of clear protocols forces the leader to become involved in every facet of the company. Determine your key processes while keeping that in mind. After identifying them, make sure they are clearly documented and put into practice. This is how self-replicating team members are made. 

4. Returns on Investment in Technology 

The key to saving time for you and your staff is to make the most of your technology. Does your current software have any features or automation that could help you save 10 minutes per day?  

You can do more without adding additional staff if everyone on your team looks for effective procedures. Profits, which equal raises, are a driving force towards efficiency.  

Get the assistance you require if you are unsure how to utilize your technology. 

5. Velocity Engine 

Once you’ve put the proper systems in place, it’s time to organize your meetings and figure out how to conduct productive meetings. It’s also time to instruct your team members on weekly planning.  

When all these elements are in place, your velocity engine will function properly, giving you the freedom to spend one day each week working on your business rather than in it.
