Businesses Grow When People Do – But Do You Have The Time?


We’ve all got them, and if you’re a business leader or manager, you’ve got more than most. You may think many of your problems are “just the way it is.” And in a way you’re right, because you’re not alone. But what if it didn’t have to be this way?

I’ve worked with thousands of leaders and managers for over fifteen years and here’s the most remarkable thing I’ve learned: everyone has unique variations of the same exact problems. And most try to solve them in the same ways–that don’t work. Eventually, the problem becomes a belief that it’s “just the way it is.” These beliefs become expressions like:

  • “Money is the root of all evil.”
  • “People are unmanageable.”
  • “I don’t have time.”
  • “There are no good people out there to hire.”

None of these beliefs are true. But don’t believe me. Keep reading.

All business problems inevitably come down to:

  • People
  • Money
  • Time

Do you complain that your people aren’t accountable? Is there never enough time in the day? Are you earning what you feel you deserve? Do you talk with other people with the same problems? Do they agree with you that this is “the way it is?”

Stop it. It’s not helping you.

Every great change begins with a decision to no longer accept a problem.

You can have great people who hold themselves accountable.

You can have more money than you need.

You can have all the time you need to be fulfilled.

You can create a great place to work. And you can be a boss that people love to work for.

No, this is not more of the same inspirational “anything is possible” crap you’ve heard from my industry for decades. This is the Clear and Open Method.

I’ve helped thousands of people eliminate their people, money, and time problems. And I want to help you, too.

But whatever you’re wrestling with, one thing I’ll bet on: you don’t have enough time to work on it yet. That’s the root problem. So that’s where you start!

Can you spare seven minutes? Of course, you can. You’re going to invest minutes to save hours per week. This is it. Change for you starts right here.

Sign up for my free, three-video course right now. Each one is about seven minutes and frees up your time so you can work on the problems you’ve had for far too long. Then I can help you with everything else.

The people you have can improve. And you can find better ones if you need to. And there’s money you’re leaving on the table without realizing it. But it all must begin with the hours you can reclaim.

These universal problems are not proof of “the way it is.” They’re proof of how rare good teaching about people, money, and time is. How much training have you received on these topics? Isn’t it mostly assumed in our world that you’d just “figure that out?” How well did that work?

I’m so sorry no one gave you the tools to tackle these universal challenges. These are things we all should have learned in high school. But because you’re reading this, it can finally be different. Please don’t wait another precious minute to save hours per week and get on track to solving the rest of your challenges.

Wyatt Jenkins"One of the greatest challenges in business is getting teams to understand one another and work together masterfully. This means having deep empathy for each other's backgrounds, motivations, passion areas and blind spots. Josef Shapiro understands these needs and has been expertly using the Enneagram as a tool for helping people for many years.

In both personal coaching and workshops, Josef has done an awesome job helping my teams empathize with one another, achieve greater cohesion as a group and learn new things about themselves as well."

"I am a stronger, more consistent leader as a result of my participation in Clear and Open. Josef brings rigorous inquiry into all aspects of being.  Working with Josef is beyond coaching. It's like having a really great personal trainer but for business, with an insistence on excellence at every turn. As with any great workout, it hurts, but I am so much more ready to meet the unexpected challenges."
