One of the key aspects when deciding to Saasify your work is to know WHY.
Why are you willing to embark on the journey.
I personally think that whatever your why is, you are making a good decision that will make your business better.
However, I know that knowing your why may make the difference between a smooth and successful process or a big failure.
Your why should dictate a lot of things, it will influence what your end goals are, what you consider a success, what the overall process will look like, ...
Your why will help you push through difficulties. It will help you feel energized and enthusiastic about the process and the progress.
So, whatever your why is, there is no right or wrong answer, know what it is and you it to guide you.
Struggling to identify why you should saasify ?
Here are ways to find it:
Answer those few questions:
- Why did you decide to be a business owner?
- Why did you choose the field, the industry you are in?
- Why are you reading this?
- What reasons brought you to this page?
Or start from your goals :
- Why do you want more money?
- Why do you want more free time?
- Why ...
And it is likely that the reasons why you want to Saasify your work are the same.
Saasifying your work means streamlining it, building / using / aligning software with your expectations to help you reach your goals, your why.
Feel free to let me know your why and if I can help.
Your why may change ... and it is ok
As you evolve, as you go through the process, as you see new opportunities, your goals and why may shift.
That's not a problem at all, it is even the opposite. Recognizing the evolution will help you move forward to better success, to what is the current goal.
When it happens, take some time to realign yourself. Take note of where you currently are, what you currently have and start the process again.
Remember, you're not starting from scratch, you just need to readjust your direction. As navigators of the old times, follow your new North Star.
