Hi. I'm Spencer McMurtry
Over the last 10 years, I have worked with hundreds of business owners, automated and sold three of my own companies and coached over 500 highly motivated entrepreneurs.
From all of this experience, I’ve discovered that the key to success for ANY business is having systems that work.
That’s what The Systems Method is all about, having systems in place so you can enjoy the life you have worked so hard to create.
Currently, I work with three high-level consulting clients at a time and run my real estate investment company.
I started my first business when I was only 14 years old. While that sounds great, I found that I was constantly involved in every little detail of the business.
From scrambling to maintain my bookkeeping, to putting out fires for upset customers, I was so caught up in the busy work that I never felt like I had the time to develop a vision for scaling, much less enjoying, my business.
I would start out each day with a plan for what I wanted to accomplish, but it seemed like there was a never ending tidal wave of tasks that were dumping onto my plate. My business become increasingly stressful, and I thought of giving up. I was so overwhelmed!
It wasn’t just affecting me.
While I was trying to keep my business alive, I was putting in incredibly long hours into my work. I hardly had any time to spend with my family or friends. I wasn’t making any progress in my business, and I couldn’t even enjoy my life.
I was depressed and in pain.
I knew that something was wasn’t working. I went from feeling on top of the world to losing almost all my motivation to run the business. Some days it even felt impossible to get out of bed.
I remember thinking to myself, “I have worked so hard to get my business started. Why does it seem like I am continually working harder, and stressing myself out, just to stay afloat?”
I wanted out, so I found a solution
I dedicated myself to countless hours of studying what makes some new business successful, whereas other businesses flop within their first year.
That’s when I noticed that some business owners absolutely loved the business they had created for themselves. These owners were running the successful companies. No surprise there, but the real gem was when I examined how each of those owners spent their time.
I noticed that the owners who enjoyed their business would only spend their time focusing on specific areas of the business — the areas they enjoyed. Other business tasks such as bookkeeping and dealing with customers were done by people who that owner had hired.
That’s when everything changed.
I quickly realized that I was overwhelmed because I was literally drowning in day-to-day tasks that could easily be done by someone else.
The solution was to implement systems that worked. So, I did.
While automating many aspects of my own business I noticed a pattern that not only would work for my business but would work for any business owner like me.
That was over a decade ago. Since then, I have mentored hundreds of business owners who have been able to duplicate my results.
It’s an incredible feeling when you get to help a fellow business owner reach, and many times surpass their goals — that’s what drives me today.
My mission is to help people create a life they can enjoy, regain their personal freedom, and love the business that they have created.
