Overcome the 11 Tea Business Hurdles

Your job is about to get a LOT easier.

After more than a decade in the industry, it was difficult for me to NOT see patterns in tea businesses that succeeded and tea businesses that failed. And as a person who cares about the welfare of the specialty tea industry, it was difficult for me to NOT act on that realization. So, I started coaching tea businesses on how to succeed. And out of that work, I created this series of documents on the major hurdles tea businesses face and how to overcome them.

It focuses on the 11 key areas of improvement that can make or break a tea business. Some of them are things that businesses intended to ‘get around to’ sooner or later… and somehow never did. Others are areas that are like blind spots for struggling tea businesses, or even tasks that elicit panic at their very mention. Usually, within a few hours of focused work, the worry just dissolves. It’s simply a matter of actually DOING those hours of focused work. That’s exactly the kind of thing this series remedies. And it does so in the simplest, most effective ways I’ve found in my years of work with tea businesses.

I’ve seen these exercises work with small and midsize tea businesses around the world. Many of these same exercises have helped me up level my own business and personal life, too. They work, and they’re worth every second and every cent you invest in them. (When it comes to mastering tricky areas such as effective prioritization and clear communication, $9 per hurdle ain't bad at all!)

Are you ready to take the reigns of your tea business and leap over the most common tea business hurdles? Get started TODAY with this detailed guide.

It includes:

  1. Clarifying your company mission & vision
  2. Time tracking
  3. Calendaring it in
  4. Goal setting
  5. Prioritization
  6. Financial comprehension
  7. Delegation
  8. Automation
  9. Personal rewards structures
  10. Team rewards structures
  11. Communication

Each document includes clear, detailed instructions for overcoming each of these all-too-common pitfalls. Wherever applicable, specific examples for the tea industry are included (such as examples of highly productive weekly schedules for cafe owners, tea wholesalers and online tea 'solopreneurs').

Following these simple instructions makes the difference between scraping by in your tea business (low income, exhaustion, stress, little free time, etc.) and thriving in your tea business (getting clear on your goals, working on the big-picture stuff rather than getting mired down in the low-level tasks, delegating effectively, taking time off to recharge, etc.).
