For many entrepreneurs, running a successful business independently is a dream come true. It can be hard to admit or even realize that after awhile, you don’t want to be in the office every day. That you would like a little time off from the constant responsibility. That you are stressed out. If you feel like this most or all of the time, you should consider a transition from owner operator to absentee ownership.
Hands On Solutions is a consultancy business precisely targeted to aid you in transition from the business role of owner operator to absentee owner. If you love having your own business but don’t want to go into the office every day, help is available. Hands On will assess whether your timing is right to transition. If you are, our consultants will give you not only the practical tools do to it, but also the confidence and knowledge you will need. An owner-operator owns a business and works there daily, which, timewise, is usually as much or more than a regular employee. When you become an absentee-owner, you leave the day to day work of your business in the hands of a manager and are able to be out of the office routinely.
Hands On consultants specialize in service industry businesses with annual revenues of $200,000 to $5 million. If your business offers services and makes that amount annually, Hands On can help you transition from owner operator to absentee owner. But don’t hesitate to get a free consultation even if your business is slightly different. The Hands On consulting program will be customized to meet your specific needs – for example, one business might need the most help with human resources during a transition, another with accounting. Are you looking to reduce hours, stress, or do you have issues in all of these areas?
If you decide to change the way your business runs and you want to use Hands On, you will receive personal, professional attention, specifically at least three in-person site visits to your business and unlimited phone consulting for six months. Hands On provides strategic recommendation packets that will help with your specific problems. Another highly effective part of the Hands On consulting program is that you will be held accountable to your consultant. Hands On will track your progress on a weekly basis so you can see the results of your work, which increases your confidence. Many consulting programs simply give advice but then let you go. When you are held accountable, you are more likely to keep at a problem in order to solve it and thereby succeed.
Any business with whom Hands On consults will be given six absentee owner manuals each focusing on a specific business issues. The rationale behind Hands On recommendations is explained in these manuals. Going through the manuals step-by-step with a Hands On consultant not only teaches you the most effective way to change your business – the knowledge you gain will be useful for as long as you are in business.
Through Hands On Solutions, you can decide whether you want to move to an absentee owner model, then learn what you need to do to create and maintain that type of business both immediately and over the long run.
