With the ambition that comes with being an entrepreneur doing the right things is very important. Entrepreneurs are daring and will make any extra effort to realize their goals of keeping building their empires. This includes working extra hours.

However, doing things all by your self will not transform your business into the empire and neither working 80hrs a week instead of 40hrs. The truth, your body, is vulnerable to a break down due to fatigue from being overworked. Hence, there the need for a helping hand.

Surprisingly, a majority of entrepreneurs have the mentality that they must for their businesses to run the right way. While this is somewhat applicable depending on the people you hired, creating systems would go a long way in replacing you and relieve some pressure.

A system provides the workflow, which keeps things together; thus, it is a combination of people, processes, and tools. People are the staff you hired, processes are steps or guidelines, which keep activities flowing and tools include the software and items of work.

Of importance is to engage invention, creativity, and innovation. The two give you the possibility of exploiting new ideas to the advantage of the business. It will not only be improved but also profitable.

Creative processes increase efficiency and productivity                           

More often than not, a majority of entrepreneurs put more energy on people and tools and little or no effort on processes. Unfortunately, processes are responsible for taking your business to the next level. They ensure things don’t collapse in your absence; hence, they are a primary key to replacing yourself.

Processes not only promote productivity, but they also help in reducing costs, keep the business competitive, and also filter any unnecessary activities in the business. They increase the survival chances of your business.

Additionally, a supportive environment is very necessary where people can express their ideas openly within facing ridicule or criticism. Share the accountability of innovation with everyone in the business and make them feel part of the systems and processes. And while looking for creativity, don’t always be impressed by qualifications. Surprisingly, innovative thinkers do not have those qualifications but have very valuable contributions.
