The 7 Major Benefits of Taking Your Business to Level Three  It’s well worth investing your time, energy, and resources to build a thriving Level Three business. When you do, here are the seven tangible benefits you’ll get:  It gives you control over your financial future. It will massively increase your net worth. Your business is much easier to scale. You earn your freedom from your business. A Level Three business gives your staff security and growth opportunities.  Your business is dramatically more stable.  You have a greater impact on your market.   So, let’s look at 4 myths that hold people back building a level 3 business  Myth 1: It’s too risky.  Is starting your own business really so risky? Let’s look at the facts.  Fact: According to most credible studies, a generic business start-up that has at least one employee has a roughly 70 percent chance of still being in business after two years (the way most studies define “success” for a start-up business). More than 50 percent are still in business after five years. And these numbers are misleadingly low in most instances. Why? Because the data doesn’t account for businesses that close for legitimate reasons other than “business failure”— reasons such as health issues, the desire to start a new business, or other personal reasons.  These statistics are a source of encouragement. After all, if 70 percent of new business owners can succeed through the first two years and at least half make it through year five, imagine how much better your odds are when you tap into the support, training, and input from resources such as the Business Accelerator Mastermind community. Myth 2: It will consume your life.  Yes, launching a new business is intense. So are the Level Two years of establishing, grooming, and growing your company. But when you understand the Level Three Road Map, you see that as you grow your business, you not only can but must build it to be increasingly less dependent on you.   That's why we're encouraging you to build a business, not a job so that over time you can transition your business away from needing you on a daily basis.  Myth 3: You’ve got to stay in control.  Control is a trap that will wrap your business around you, making it grow progressively more dependent on you.  Instead, learn to build your business with the systems, team, controls, and scalable solutions in place that enable it to operate independent of your autocratic control.  Myth 4: It takes a lot of money to launch a new business.  In the past it did take quite a bit of capital to establish a new business. But technology has changed the playing field, giving new-comers easier and less expensive access to businesses than at any other time in history.  Links and Resources:  Metropole’s Business Accelerator Mastermind Mark Creedon – Business Coach to some of Australia’s leading entrepreneurs  Some of our favourite quotes from the show:  “I am still involved, because I enjoy it, because I’m having fun.” –Michael Yardney  “I guess one of the reasons many of us get into business isn’t just to have a job to get money, but to leave an impact, leave a legacy on your community and on the world.” –Michael Yardney  “Hard work isn’t going to be enough to get you out of the rat race.” –Michael Yardney  PLEASE LEAVE US A REVIEW  Reviews are hugely important to me because they help new people discover this podcast.
