Baseball: An Analogy for the Four Phases in the Business Life Cycle

There are four phases or stages that an entrepreneur must go through to build a successful business.

They are as follows:

1.  First Base: The Doer Stage

The owner and the business are one and the same thing.

You not only do the work you know how to do but the work you don’t know how to do as well.

2.  Second Base: The Delegator Stage

This is a place of quiet desperation.

The leader must learn how to work “on” your business, not “in” your business.

3.  Third Base: The Dreamer Stage

Leadership: The true product of the business is not what your company sells but how it sells it.

4.  Home Plate: Personal Freedom!

Sell your business, not your product.

Statistics, Thoughts and Observations

To build a successful, self sustaining business that you can sell within 5 – 10 years, if you so desire.

And be independently wealthy for the rest of your life.

Most small business leaders have not created a business, but a job because the company is operated according to what the owner wants as opposed to what the business needs.

According to the Srully Blotnick Study – Getting Rich Your Own Way in 1962, 1500 people were divided into two groups and followed for 20 years.

Group A made up 83% of the sample.

These were people whose career goal was making money now in order to do what they wanted to do later.

Group B, the other 17%, chose their career based on what they wanted to do now and would worry about money later.

At the end of 20 years, 101 of the 1500 people had become millionaires.

Of the 101 millionaires, all but one, 100 out of 101 was from the smaller group that had chosen to pursue what they loved.
