Every week I receive more than a dozen requests for a personal meeting. Despite my current work week of about 70 hours, it is no longer possible for me to honor the vast majority of these requests. In the last few years, I’ve had to become extremely disciplined about how I invest my time.
I'm writing this blog so that those who would request a personal meeting with me might know that a decision to not meet with them is neither personal nor arbitrary.
In earlier days, I was pleased to honor many of these requests. In fact, I found these meeting gave me a great deal of personal satisfaction. Today however, I reserve personal meetings for Pro and PIBA members. And, then only when it is necessary to advance the progress of a specific acquisition transaction.
To anyone who’s personal meeting request I am not able to honor, I continue to wish you every success. I'm also pleased to offer a viable alternative. Over the years I have built a substantial team of top entrepreneurs and business professionals to support our member's efforts. Many I have mentored personally through their own acquisition and business growth challenges. My staff is committed to getting every Bizar Financing member the highest level of support possible.
In case you are curious, here is how my time is allocated.
3% of my time is committed to Bizar Financing Essentials live webinars and answers to key questions.
25% of my time is dedicated to Bizar Financing Pro where I try to do whatever is necessary to prepare members to fully fulfill their entrepreneurial potential.
25% of my time is dedicated to Partners in Business Acquisition (PIBA) where I work one-on-one with members to land large acquisitions physically creating wealth where little or none existed before.
27% of my time is devoted to projects architected to create new and enduring socially beneficial wealth. Into these projects, I invite those Pro and PIBA members who share my values, have demonstrated an ability to use the Essentials and Pro trainings to acquire companies and who want to be part of these legacy projects.
5% of my time is consumed with public speaking engagements and media interviews.
15% of my time is consumed by governance and administrative functions required to lead or operate my portfolio of owned companies. A sizeable percentage of this time is consolidated into travel time.
