Here are the highlights of this episode:
Dr. Tamer told us that his ideal clients are business owners in which he helps them scale or grow further their businesses. It comes to a point where these folks feel overwhelmed, overwork and stressed out in making decisions, what's the next step, or what it is that's not working in their system. He sees that a lot of us get stuck on our daily routine task of what we need to achieve in a day. There's no focus, strategy or long-term destination in the business. And based on Dr. Tamer's own experience, he and his team know exactly how to help these people. He explains that there is a disconnect between what we're doing today and what we're dreaming, so he helps them connect that. And the way to work that is to really to work backwards; work 'top down' not down to top.
Dr Tamer’s Valuable Free Action (VFA): He said to set aside a time for ourselves per day; really book a time for ourselves or become our own clients. Sit down and create a timetable and think of their business strategically and what's the end destination. Most importantly, is to do this by working from 'top down' not 'down up'.
“There is a disconnect between what you're doing today and what you're dreaming; we need to find a way to connect those and remove that disconnect. And the way to work that is to really to work backwards; work 'top down' " – Dr. Tamer Shahin
